I find that I do lots of little gift giving this time of year: teacher appreciation, Mother’s Day, baby and wedding shower party favors, etc. Here are some ideas for ways to mass produce cute jars for gift giving!

Supplies:

  • Bird figures
  • E-6000 Glue
  • Paint
  • Glass jars with lids

Step one: Clean the jars and remove the labels.

Step two: Use E-6000 to glue the bird to the lid. Add flower cabochons if wanted.

Step four: Add depth to the figures. Here are three different ideas you can try.

  • Metallic glaze: Brush it on and wipe back gently with a dry cloth.

  • DIY Stain: Mix any color paint with a stain medium to make your own stain. Brush on and wipe back with a dry cloth.

All that’s left to do is fill the jars to have a pretty, handmade gift. Fill the jars with mints, candy, notes, etc. These make pretty party favors, or are great for when you need to give multiples of something, like to teachers or co-workers. Have fun crafting and creating!
