Primary TechniqueDIY Craft
Project TypeMake a Project
- Pint size mason jar with lid (I love to use these smooth sided ones for crafts like this)
- White spray paint
- Black spray paint
- Graduation hat box
- OL2088 labels
- Printable label file
- Grey, tan, and orange felt
- Hot glue and glue gun
- Bottle caps
- Google eyes
Spray paint the jar white and the lid black. Set aside to dry completely. Carefully take the hat apart.
Use hot glue on the inside to secure the tassel into place.
Once the lid is dry, use hot glue to place it onto the hat.
Print the owl pattern page and cut the pieces from felt. Start adding the pieces to the mason jar with hot glue. The body pieces should meet in the front of the jar as shown below. They may overlap slightly in the back depending on the jar that you use.
Add the beak with hot glue.
Secure the google eyes to the bottle caps with hot glue then add them to your mason jar.
You will then need to make your graduation sign for the owl. Download the printable label file and print it onto your labels. Use two labels back to back on the end of a short dowel rod.
Then hot glue the wings into place with the graduation sign under one of the wings.
Fill the jar with your gift, screw on the lid, and this graduation mason jar gift is ready to give to the graduate.
