DIY Movie Invitation in a Jar
Here’s what you need:
- Mason jars or clear jar with a lid.
- Acrylic paint & paint brush.
- Super Glue or Fast Drying Strong Glue
- Movie themed plastic figurine such as The Secret Life of Pets
- Movie ticket or hand made “ticket” invitation.
- Movie theater inspired treats such as popcorn and candy.
Step One: Paint your jar lids with your desired matching color. You will probably need 2-3 coats to cover. Let dry completely.
Step Two: Glue your choice of plastic figurine onto inner lid or the top center of the jar you are using. (If you are using a lid that does not seperate, make sure to twist the lid on before deciding where to glue your figure to ensure that it will be facing the front of the jar.)
Let dry completely.
Step Three: Once your jar lid is set and dried, it’s time to fill up your jar with fun movie goodies.
