How To Make: Gold Animal Jars

If you're after a fun DIY project then this is for you. With so many purposes these jars will look great in all rooms of your home. They also make a great gift for others too.

What you'll need:
Dulux Duramax gold spray paint
Assortment of empty clean jars
Packet of plastic animals (mine were from spotlight)
Super Glue

1. Remove all the lids from the jars. Squeeze a little glue onto each foot of the animal and stick onto the lid in the centre. Only use a small amount as you dont want the excess glue to squeeze out under the feet.
2. Once the glue is dry (time will vary depending on your chosen glue) place the lids on some cardboard and lightly spray with the gold spray paint. I did a few light coats and touch ups where needed. Dont forget to spray under the animal also.
3. Once your lids are dry fill the jars with whatever you like - crayons, cotton buds, lollies, rubberbands, mini pegs... so many options. Display around your home for quirky cute decor.

They are nice Jess except they dont screw on as nicely as the other ones

Looks good Leanne. Can you please report back on these in a few months to see if the paint is still in tact?

Sure Natalie. I've popped a reminder on my Calender for you
