Trolls Mason Jars

Want to make a cute piece of decor for your child’s room? Look no further than these adorable Trolls mason jars.

Kids will need help applying the primer to the jars. Though you can make them without primer, the primer makes the paint go on more smoothly and requires fewer coats of paint. You can, however, skip the priming step if you want to.

Once the paint is dry and the glue on the decorations is dried, it’s time to add something to your cute jars. Flowers or succulents are a great idea! But you can use them as pencil holders for your desk, too.
