Feeling springy, I made a set of three animal topped jars in white and pink with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint earlier in the year when it was still frigid outdoors – I decided to do another jar that is actually for Easter. I liked the rustic and super matte appearance of the first set of jars however, I wanted the finish to look a bit cleaner this go around so I used spray paint.
Party Animal Jar
Use a small amount of the E6000 to adhere the animal to the jar lid and allow to try for 24 hours. Next give your animal lid a nice coat of spray paint and one more when the time comes. Allow to dry for 48 hours.
During the two days of paint dry time go ahead and make a teeny tiny party hat for your animal – use this template, but scale it down immensely (you can just eyeball it). Make a tiny fringe with the metallic foil paper, roll it and secure on the outside with double sided tape.
When you’re rolling your cone, place the fringe in the top of the cone (the double sided tape you used will secure it to the cone. Rest the hat on the animal and mark where the string should go for securing his hat.
With a 1/16th inch hole punch, carefully punch a hole for the string and fish the two strings through the holes and knot from the inside. Put the hat on the animal’s head and tie the strings into a little bow so he can get his party on!
