Mason Jar Pet Gifts tutorial
Hi, I’m Brooke from Artistic Endeavor. I am so happy to be here at Plucky’s Second Thought.
I have been doing Mason Jar projects over on my blog for Mason Jar Mondays and thought I would share this simple project just in time for the holidays.
Everyone loves gifts for Christmas.
At our house, even the pets have presents to open…
Here is a simple and fun way to package some treats for a furry friend you know…
I used wide mouth pint jars I picked up at the grocery store.
Wash the jars and be sure they are clean.
For our pooches, I filled it with treats.
I painted the lids with a couple coats of DecoArt’s Chalky Finish paints for a dash of color.
I made a new collar from an old belt.
To do this, I trimmed the belt to the right size, and used a leather hole punch to punch several new holes in it.
Then I glued a little dog to the top.
For the Cat Treat Jar I painted the lid, added a cat collar that I purchased and glued a cat figure to the top.
To minimize glue puddles, add the glue drops the bottoms of the figure’s feet and then press it on the lid.
I filled it with cat toys such as a mouse, some balls and a felted wool ball I made.
You could also use cat treats, catnip or a laser pointer.
If you do not have any pets of your own, this makes a thoughtful gift for a friend that does.
It will be greatly appreciated.
