Dream jars.

IMG_0308.JPGIMG_0306.JPG   This project is a really simple and affordable project to do. It is easy and you only need a few basic materials. We made these whilst reading ‘The BFG’ by Roald Dahl – see the blog about ‘Reading : inspired crafts’.

How to make.

Level: Easy.

Cost: Little.

Enjoyment: We had Lots of fun with these. The boys were very impressed with the colours/texture inside jar and the finish jars looked pretty cool .

 Time: Approx 15 minutes to produce, however you will need to allow drying time.

You will need: 

  • A clean old jam jar.
  • Paint and brush.
  • Glitter.
  • Pva.
  • Additional items to decorate your jar : pom-poms, pipe cleaners and stickers.

To make: 

  1. Mixed some one or more glitter colour and Pva glue together, paint inside your jar – then allow to dry.
  2. Mixed some paint and Pva glue together, this can be one or more colours your choice. Paint inside your jar onto the dried glitter, then allow to dry.
  3. When dried, decorate your jar your chosen way. We chose to use stickers to make our own ‘BFG’ and create our own dream version jar.
