I've said it before and I'll say it again: the mason jar is the LBD (little black dress) of the crafting world. Mason jars are so versatile and you can do so much with them! I'm joining up with several crafty friends to share a variety of gifts that you can give that are packaged in mason jars. We're sharing gift ideas for men, crafters, children, etc. I'm excited to share a mason jar gift that a little boy (or girl!) would enjoy. This Minion mason jar gift will make you smile.

Mason Jar

Yellow and black Glass Paint

Yellow cardstock

Styrofoam Ball

Brown paint

Black elastic

Glue gun
Step one: Pour a generous amount of yellow glass paint into the mason jar. Replace the lid and shake the jar to cover the inside with yellow paint. Remove the lid, and hold the jar upside down to let the excess paint drip out. Let the mason jar dry.
Step two: Trace the mason jar lid on yellow paper and glue it inside the mason jar lid.

Step three: Cut a styrofoam ball in half, and glue it inside the mason jar lid on top of the yellow paper.

    Very cute! But then one needs to get additional lids to seal the jar for filling with goodies wnd gifting or do you use the Cyclopes lid temporarily?

    So cute! What is glass paints? Where do I get this at? Would any paint work? I'm wanting to paint jars to look like footballs for a banquet. Painting the insides would be much easier! Just shake them!
