I have been collecting jars for some time and have accumulated quite a collections of baby food jars from when my daughter was a baby. What do you do with a shelf full of jars? Well, for the past 2 years, I have been using them at my daughters 4th and 5th birthday party. I create some DIY Party Favour Jars to give to the kids who attended. I even had my daughter help out. It turned into mother/daughter craft time.
baby food jars
printer and labels
Soak jars and remove old label and glue. ( I gave that job to my hubby)
Once the jars and lids are dry begin painting the lids with the paint colour of your choice. Usually 3 to 4 coats, allow drying between coats.
Spray with sealer to give a bit of a shine and keep paint from chipping.
Add some clip art to a label, print off and stick to the outside of the jar. Add some sparkle with ribbon, a bow or a craft decorations.
Fill jars with candy, beads, hair clips or some other item of your choosing.
Your project is done!
