Craft these little DIY party animal jars for party favors at your Easter party! Fun upcycling project to save money!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.

Jar/lid
Toy animal
E6000
Spray paint (I buy this at the hardware store)
Scrapbook paper
Metallic foil paper
Double sided tape
String

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.

Make a tiny fringe with the metallic foil paper, roll it and secure on the outside with double sided tape.

    I just stumbled on your website and think this is such a clever and cute idea! I’m pinning it so that I can make a flock of them!

    I have a link party that I am trying to grow. I invite you to share this idea — and a couple of others — at my Grandma Ideas Sharing Time link party at . I think my readers would love this idea as much as I do.

    The party goes from Wednesday through Friday night at midnight. I hope to see you there.

    That is so freaking cute! I can see the devil coming out of me and doing this to the hundred jars of nails and screws hubby has in his hobby room. Just to mess with him! I would love it you could add this and 2 others to a link Party I am co hosting with 4 other bloggers. It just went live an hour ago and I think our followers would love it! If not, I understand, and have a great week!
