Toy Top Jars are a fun and easy way for your kids to jazz up storage containers for their small toys, rocks, legos, coins, hair bands, etc…The decorative options for the tops of the jars are endless as well as the paint to color them with. Most of these supplies you will probably have around your house but if not all of the items needed (except spray paint) can be found at the Dollar Store making this a very inexpensive activity! I hope you enjoy this easy tutorial for how to make mason jar toppers.
Toy Mason Jar Toppers Tutorial
Toy Top Jar Supplies Needed:
- Mason Jar with Lid and Ring
- Spray Paint
- Glue (we used hot glue but Super Glue would work as well)
- Small Toys
Directions For How To Make Mason Jar Toppers:
Gather your supplies and head to the kitchen if you are using a hot glue gun. If you’re not, head outside. After the glue has warmed up, first glue the lid of your mason jar to your ring. After that has dried, glue your small toy to the lid. *We just found a few old small toys around the house to use for our toppers. If you don’t have extra small toys at home, a dollar store will have small characters on the toy aisle that would work great! After your glue on the toy has dried, take your top outside, lay on an old sheet, trash bag or a tarp and spray the lid, ring and toy. You might have to spray on 2 coats depending on the original color of your toy. We used spray paint that we already had. We will probably make a few others with new paint since my daughter really wanted pink!
Once the top is dry, time for your children to find some treasure to store in their new Toy Top Jars!!
