Happy Birthday Donald Duck~ Birthday Party Favors


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!

You'll need:
  • clean glass baby food jars with lids
  • blue paint
  • paintbrush
  • yellow or gold ribbon, rickrack, etc.
  • red felt with sticky back
  • black felt
  • scissors
  • glue
  • 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! ;)  


Thanks for stopping by!  Please visit my other friends who are helping celebrate Donald's Birthday today!

    1. You should Deb! They are so cute. When we finish the candy, i think I'll fill it with something else white, just to keep the look alive! :)
