Mickey Mouse Mason Jars
Enjoy making this Mickey Mouse Mason Jar for yourself or your kids. This craft is so fun and just too perfect to create. Make it for your favorite Mickey Mouse fan. It is hard to say which I enjoy more, being organized or my love for all things Disney. Both are a very close first.
Two classics meet in the practical and nostalgic design. You too can create this mickey mouse mason jar.
I love how versatile Ball Mason Jars are for crafting. You can purchase them at your local Dollar Store, Walmart, or online from Amazon. Either way, they are not very expensive. I like to can food from my garden each year. So I pretty much have a cabinet full of the finest collection of Ball Mason jars around.
For this craft project, you can choose to use a pint or quart size jar depending on what you will be storing. I used a pint mason jar for this tutorial.
Get ready.! – Let’s Get Started
First, did you see the first photo? Aren’t they so darling? I’m looking forward to seeing them daily and using them often. I won’t leave you without instructions.
I created this tutorial. So you too can create your own cute Mickey Mouse Mason Jars. I know you will want to make your own. These are incredibly easy to make.
Disney Mason Jars – Supplies Needed
Black spray paint (I used Chalkboard Black Paint)
Red card stock
Hot glue gun/hot glue
Mickey Mouse Crafting Instructions
First, you will want to remove the lid from your Mason jar. Next, spray your jar with your black spray paint in a well-ventilated area and let dry. Leave to dry for the amount of time required (it should say on the paint can).
I choose to use black chalkboard paint. Depending on the coverage, you may need a second coat of paint. I left mine out to dry for a full 24 hours.
Next, draw a line onto your red card stock width-wise about 2 1/2” tall. Then you are going to want to cut out your strip of construction paper with scissors. Carefully cut a straight line.
Once your jar is fully dry, carefully wrap the red paper around the bottom of the jar. Then, using your hot glue, secure your red card stock to the jar. You will need to hold it in place for a few seconds. Word of advice, please be careful not to burn your fingers.
I have a love/hate relationship with my hot glue gun. I am often not very careful, even though I try very hard. Hot glue hurts!
Again and carefully hot glue two yellow buttons about an inch apart where your paper meets the paint. This is a complete afterthought, but I found some glue dots in my craft room that I know would have worked just as well. And guess what? No burnt fingers.
Once you get your buttons on and add in the jar tip without the sealing piece, you are all set. That is it! Pretty simple, right? Just a few steps.
Fill with pens, pencils, or colorful paper straws. And that is it! These jars are pretty easy to make and give you a fun decoration for your home.
I’m so happy with how this Mickey Mouse Mason Jars craft turned out. I know it will add some fun and some color to our school homework area. Now we don’t have to dig through the drawers to find the perfect pen. I know we will enjoy looking at them over the years to come.
