This craft is pretty quick and great for kids ages 4 and up. It can be used as playroom decor or bedroom nightlight! Let the kids select the paper, paint color, toy and stickers to express their creative side! Parents - you control the glue gun...and viola a family project with little cost and little mess!
WHAT YOU NEED:
1 sheet of your favorite scrapbook paper (about $.69-.99 cents at a craft store with tons to choose from!)
1 mason jar (can make as large or small as you want)
small kids toy (pick from home or Dollar Store - leave plain or paint it to match your decor - we used a white polar bear for a winter themed twinkle light)
WATCH VIDEO TUTORIAL
Lay the mason jar on its side on top of the backside of the scrapbook paper (draw a line where the jar begins to dip in. Cut lengthwise to create the inner jar design
Paint both parts of the metal lid - let dry throughly before glueing the toy on top or adding stickers. If you are painting the toy do that now as well.
Hot glue the toy to the center of the painted (and dry) lid. Add stickers, gems of any other fun crafts accessories that might fit.
Place in a battery powered light - can use string lights or single candle.
