    Can you please tell me where you got this awesome jar?

    Jennifer W wrote:

    I actually made the jar:) I found the jar at Target, and the Mickey figurine at The Dollar Tree. I super glued the Mickey to the lid, then spray painted the lid and Mickey black. I also made the letters, using my Cricut and self stick vinyl.

    Did you use a special kind of spray paint? I was told that if I spray paint Styrofoam it would melt.

    Jennifer W wrote:

    It's just styrofoam balls glued together and glued to a wooden dowel. I sprayed the whole thing with spray paint I had on hand, which was chalk board paint. I didn't have any issues with it melting.

    The backdrop is just polka dot kraft paper (I believe I bought from Hobby Lobby) I cut out a giant Mickey head out of black poster board, and I made the banner myself using my Cricut.

    I didn't have any issue with the spray paint melting the styrofoam. I used chalkboard spray paint cause that's what I had on hand.

    Thanks! And what about those two yellow circles on them? And the black Mickey heads? And while I'm at it, what about the banner? LOL sorry... It's my son's first birthday and I want everything to be perfect.

    The banner I made myself using my Cricut die cut machine, but you could easily find patterns online and cut it out with scissors.

    The yellow circles are just yellow buttons I found at Michaels, I just hot glued them on. The yellow shredded paper is from dollar tree and so is the styrofoam that's inside the pail so the dowel will stand up. I got the styrofoam balls from Walmart and hot glued them together to make Mickey's head and just spray painted them black with chalkboard paint that I already had on hand. I pushed the dowel halfway through the head and put some hot glue around the bottom of the stick to hold it in place. Very easy to make.

    Thank you so much! But sorry to ask... What's a cricut?

  • Jennifer W

    It's a die cut machine that cuts out letters and images. I use it to make all my party supplies. It's a couple hundred dollars and you can find them at Michaels, Hobby Lobby, and online.
