Hey guys,

Remember the post I did about Dollarama awhile back? Remember those adorable animal-lidded jars I mentioned being obsessed with? Well, I finished making a set of my own and I wanted to show them to you.

It's a very simple project.

Clean glass jars with metal lids (like old olive jars).
Plastic animals from the dollar store.
Epoxy glue.
White primer or other well-adhering paint in the colour(s) of your choice.

All you need to do is glue the animals to the jar lids and then paint the lids (and the animals) a solid colour. My animals were a bit too big for some of my jars, so I cut them in half (with a sturdy utility knife). The effect is a bit more surreal, with animal bums on some jars and partial torsos on others, but I like it. Here are the snaps:
Plastic animals before.
Project in progress.
After: the jars, completed.
Initially, I made these planning to give them to my niece, but I love them so much, I may have to keep them for myself.
