Painted Animal Jars

I’ve been in love with those painted animal jars ever since I saw them come across my Pinterest feed – for one reason or another I never bothered to make them. I realized I had a great stash of jars and all I needed was animals and spray paint.

I wasn’t really feeling spray paint so I pulled out Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paint, and themed a few of these guys for Valentine’s. Instead of waxing these (which would have been a pain) I am going to seal them with poly (this is my fave poly because you don’t have to sand it).

I used E6000 glue to adhere the little guys to the lids of the jars… you don’t want to see how awful my tube of glue looks! For brushes I used chip brushes, and can I tell you how much I love using chip brushes for Chalk Paint and milk paint? I am a huge fan of Dollar Tree’s brushes, but I use so many brushes when I paint that even a dollar is hard to justify – chip brushes are about half the cost and they work great for the Chalk Paint and milk paint!
