A cute mason jar top for the less traditional home decorator.
The project that I did today was based on a whole bunch of projects that I’ve been seeing all over the place of these super cute mason jar toppers with tiny animal figurines on them I just thought that was the most adorable idea ever. Of course, I’m not really a traditionally “cutesy” person, so I figured I would make it a little more my style. So instead of having a small bear figurine or a deer or something like that, I made mine with pastel pink spray paint and a dinosaur figurine. That’s just how I do.

Sadly, it started raining outside right as the last coat of paint was drying so there are a few problems with the final paint job but it’s nothing that is going to break my heart. If anything I think that it gives it a little bit of extra character. I cannot wait to put a bunch of questionable looking foreign candy in here and see what my friends make of it.

    I went ahead and glued my top together because my dinosaurs tail was too long for the ring to go over without breaking the dinosaur off.

    Once your top is glued together go ahead and glue down your figurine to the top and allow that to set.

    Once everything has had a couple of hours to set up go ahead and start painting. I used spray paint outside, but I’m sure you could paint it by hand if you prefer. This took like 14 coats and if I had had some sort of spray paint primer I would have used it.

    Then, once your paint has entirely dried, you are done and you can screw your cap onto your jar and store some candy in there!
