Transform little glass jars into adorable animal containers. Use them to hold crayons, buttons, coins or any other small items.
What You Need:
- Glass Jars with lids
- Felt (elephant – purple; cat – orange, yellow, and black; dog: red, pink, brown, black)
- Small pom pom (cat- pink; dog- black)
- Googly eyes
- Craft Glue
How to Make It:
Remove the lid from the jar. Paint a thick coat of white craft glue on the top of the lid.
Place the lid upside down on the desired color of felt.
Use the scissors to trim the felt into a circle, then glue the edges flush with the lid. Place a rubber band around the felt on the lid to hold it in place while the glue dries.
Cut out the facial features from felt and glue them to the lid. For the elephant, you need two matching ears and a trunk. For the cat, cut two circles for a muzzle, two triangular ears, and six thin black whiskers. For the dog, cut two circles for a muzzle, two floppy ears, a tongue, and short whiskers.
Glue the googly eyes in place. Add the pom pom noses.
- You can use yarn or pipe cleaners instead of felt strips for the whiskers.
