Easy and Adorable Storage Jars

These are one of my favourite “crafts”. They are cheap, super easy to do and really useful. 

As you can see I’m addicted. I use them to store all my craft bits and bobs. 

As well as tea, batteries and spare change…

You will need:

  • Cleans jars (any size will do)
  • Super glue
  • Spray paint (I like Wilko’s own brand as it’s reasonably priced. I just purchased some from a pound shop but I’m not sure how good it is yet.)
  • Little animal figures, Lego etc. (Wilko is also great for cheap sets of animals as are charity shops) You could glue on what you intend to keep in the jar.


  • Glue your chosen figure to the lid.
  • Leave until set
  • Spray paint outside or in a well ventilated area
  • You’ll probably need more than one coat so make sure the paint dries thoroughly between each coat 
  • Store the heck out of stuff

Ready to spray: 

The finished product: 

The only downside is lack of stackability!
