Gingerbread Jars

Gingerbread Jars
by Sharon Graves MacRae

Sharon says, " I think these would be good to use for smelly jelly, small candles or just to keep your treasures in." They are also a wonderful way to recycle baby food jars if you have a ton of them!  Use bigger jars for canisters.

  • Clean and remove the glue (nail polish remover works great!) from each jar.

  • Paint two coats of brown paint on the jar and lid. Let dry over night.

  • Lightly trace the face and paint in the facial features with black and white paints.

  • Paint cheeks with watered down pink paint.

  • Seal with an acrylic spray.

One poem is for a stuff jar and the other is for a snack jar!
