Easy DIY Flamingo Mason Jars-super cute & easy to make! They are great for organization or give as a gift!

With Back to School around the corner I am hunting up ways to get organized – and staying on the lookout for fun teacher gifts! Hi – It’s Bev from Flamingo Toes here today with these Easy DIY Flamingo Mason Jars because I feel strongly that organization should be cute too!

I made up these sweet Flamingo Mason Jars to hold things in my craft room – I’m planning on using them for small sewing notions but they would be so cute for office supplies or as teacher gifts! They are super easy and quick to make and you can have a lot of fun changing up the little animals on top – though flamingos will always look the cutest. 😉

Here’s the simple tutorial!

MATERIALS:

  • Small mason jars
  • Plastic animal for lid
  • Chalk paint – I used Folk Art Chalk pink for the jar and white for the lid
  • Chalk wax or spray seal
  • Gold Paint for details (flamingo legs)
  • Ribbon for wrapping around jar
  • Fabric & Embroidery Thread for Heart detail
  • Aqua glitter
  • Mod Podge
  • Hot Glue

Start by gluing your animal to the center of the mason jar lid. I used hot glue since my flamingo didn’t really have feet and I wanted to have a thick enough glue to hold him.

Paint your mason jar and lid with chalk paint. You’ll want a good 3-4 coats and you can distress it a bit if you like. Cover the jar and lid with wax or a spray seal or your chalk paint will come right off if you bump or scratch the jar.

Paint the center lid and animal of the jar using pink on the flamingo, gold craft paint on the legs and white on the base.

Cover the center area of the lid base with Mod Podge and cover with aqua glitter. This will look like your flamingo is in a little pool! So fun.
