How to Make a Frankenstein Mason Jar Craft
- 16oz Mason jar
- Green spray paint
- Black acrylic paint
- Large googly eyes
- Hot glue/hot glue gun
- Small tipped paint brush
- Black sharpie marker
Lay out a couple pieces of old newspaper before you get started, as things can get a bit messy.
In a well ventilated area, spray paint your mason jar green and let dry for several hours or overnight.
If younger kids are making this project, acrylic paints are a better fit – but you might need to make more than one coat of paint to get the desired look.
Paint your Mason jar lid ring black and let dry.
Screw your black lid ring back onto the green jar and glue 2 googly eyes onto the front of the jar towards the top.
Use a black sharpie to draw a zigzag mouth below the eyes and several stitches around the face.
Paint over your mouth and stitches with a small paint brush using black paint and let your jar dry.
