Dont you just love Mason jars? Since 1858, when they were invented by Philadelphian tinsmith John Landis Mason, they have been appreciated for canning, for storage, for drinking, as vases, as candle holders, as snow globes, as lightning bug catchersand thats just a few of their uses. The newest incarnation that I want to tell you about today is a Mason jar as a Lego Head! It would look great decorating a boys Lego themed party dessert table or it could serve as an awesome take home favor, filled with Lego candy and small treats. It would also be a cute piggy bank or maybe use it for storing the tiny Lego pieces. This DIY idea comes from Candy Galaxy. Its easy–my favorite kind of craft.

3. Spray paint the entire thing, using the even stroke technique. If you opt to add a second coat, wait 1-2 hours before even touching it. If its still wet youll leave smeary fingerprints which do not work for a Lego head!

4. The stickers can be any color because youre going to color them black with your sharpie. While the jar is drying is a good time to do that, but it wont take long.

5. Color 2 dots for eyes.

6. For the mouth, draw a 1 ½ -2 smile shape. Color it with the sharpie. Let it dry for a couple of minutes before cutting it out.

7. When everything is totally dry, remove the sticker backings. Place the eye dots right above the middle of the jar. The smile goes slightly below the middle of the jar. Youre finishedisnt it cute?
