Step One:

I only wanted the paint to inside of the jar and not the lip. If you want to do the same with your jars follow this step. If you want to paint the entire jar then skip to the next step.

Take the painter’s tape and cover the top of the jar where you don’t want any paint to be. You may have to cut slits in the tape to get it to fold over the top and seal tightly.

 

Step Two:

Pour a big dollop of the yellow paint in one jar. Turn the jar around in your hands to spread the paint around, tapping the jar against your palm helps to get the paint to move. Be patient, it may seem like the paint isn’t moving but it will. Keep turning and tapping the jar until all of the glass is covered in paint. When you’re happy with the coverage, turn the jar over onto a piece of paper towel and leave it to dry. Drying may take some time depending on how thick the paint is.

Repeat the previous step with the second jar and the white paint.

When the jars are dry (or mostly dry) remove any painter’s tape you applied earlier.

Cut a small triangle out of the orange felt, this will be the ducks beak. Use the hot glue to attach your beak to the centre of the yellow jar. Next, use the black gems as eyes and attach them with the hot glue on either side of the beak to complete the ducks face.

On the white jar, use the black paint to make whiskers in the centre of the jar. Paint an X and then add lines out the side to make three whiskers on each side. Add a pink pom pom nose with the hot glue and black gems for the bunny’s eyes.
