Happy 80th Birthday Donald Duck!
To help celebrate his birthday, C-man and I decided to make a craft that could double as a party favor- if you were to actually throw a Donald Duck themed birthday party! :) This was really easy!
- clean glass baby food jars with lids
- blue paint
- yellow or gold ribbon, rickrack, etc.
- red felt with sticky back
- black felt
- white candy- m&m's, sixlets, jellybeans, etc. Party City has a good selection.
First paint the lids blue. If I were to do this again, I think I may glue a thin black ribbon around the side of the lid since Donald has a black band around his hat. While the paint is drying, do the next steps.Glue the yellow ribbon or rickrack around the center of the jar. I used a hot glue gun, but I think tacky glue would work well too- and it would be better for children to use.
Using scissors, cut out a red bow tie shape from the red sticky back felt and stick it under the rickrack.
Once the lid is dry, cut a small strip of black felt and glue it to the center of the lid. Fill the jar with white candy, screw the lid on and you are done!
C-man says we are going to do candy jars like this for the rest of the Fab Five... if so, I'll be sharing! ;)
