An addictive DIY refashioning Mason jars

After my latest Mason jar refashioning DIY, I was ready to do more! So what's a crafty girl to do - she sources more Mason jars from either her recycling bin or from her local thrift store. These ones came from my local Salvation Army thrift store and were about $1 each. Next time I'll save my Mason jars instead of recycling them to lower my cost on this project.



Next I used the lids from my recent trek to Urban Source on Main Street. Plus I had a few more plastic animals left over. I was set!



Lastly I just needed a few sponge brushes, super glue, acrylic paint and Mod Podge. I was ready to craft!



I glued the lid pieces together then glued the plastic animal to the top. Allowed the glue to dry then coated the lids with 3-4 coats of acrylic paint.



Once the paint was dry, I added a couple of coats of Mod Podge.



This was my super crafty weekend... 5 Mason jar DIYs, a pair of baby booties and a bunch of gift tags.



Scrap paper and a gift tag pattern can make crafty magic happen in a jiffy!



Love this DIY - it's easy, it's cheap and it's fabulous!



Next I'll be preparing for upcoming Crafternoons... Looking forward to crafting with 'crap' with my peeps.
