DIY Dino Storage Jars

4 Materials
1 Hour

My groovy DIY lifestyle means my home is chock full of decor that has been specifically created to match mine and the kiddo’s personal tastes and styles. We spend a lot of time together in our kitchen so I’ve tried to combine as many of her decor ideas with my own as possible to create a comfy atmosphere and as dinosaurs continue to be incredibly popular in our house we just had to make a few DIY dino storage jars to adorn the countertop:

Grab the easy peasy tutorial below:

Grab a few storage jars, plastic dinos, all-purpose glue and some spray paint.

Glue a dinosaur to the lid of the storage jar.

quick tip: if your storage jars have a definite front and back be sure to keep the lid screwed on to the jar so you’ll know which way to have the dinosaur facing.

Once the glue is completely dry remove the lids and give them a few coats of spray paint.

Once the paint is completely dry fill up the jars and enjoy your fancy new lids!
