Dino on my Jar

Mason jars lids made fun with colored dinosaur toys.

To play or not to play? I would say definitely to play. So why not play with mundane things to make it fun and cheerful! 

That's what we exactly do in this quirky, up cycling project - in which the lids of mason jars become our canvas of creativity.

The technique is real simple - we use old dinosaur play mates (or we could use any animal). The animal size is important; it should be as per our lid size - not too big nor too small. Once we decide on the perfect animal toy, simply stick them in standing position on your lid with a strong adhesive bond. And allow it to dry.

Once hardened and strong, then prime it and leave it overnight.  Then it's all about painting it with colors of your choice. We prefer to go pastel: to give our fiery dinos, some muted playfulness.  Let the paint dry. And you have created your own mini-jurassic world.

Fill your tyrannosaurus, stegosaurus and brontosaurus jars with your favourite candies or stock up your stationery in it. But do make sure you flaunt your super cool & super colorful dinosaur jars.
