Trolls Mason Jars Craft for Kids


Supplies Needed for Trolls Mason Jars

  • Small Mason Jars
  • Pink Acrylic Paint
  • Spray Primer – we like this brand for painting mason jars
  • Googly Eyes
  • Sharpie
  • Pink, Green & Blue Felt
  • A flower or plant that grows upward (preferably in pink) – the variety we found is called Celosia Intenz. If doing this for a party, you could also use cut flowers at different lengths to get the “growing hair” look.
  • Hot Glue (adults only) or Glue Dots for kids to use

We made these versions by pouring the paint inside (this is only recommended if you’re making these for a Trolls party). See more tips on this below.

We also made another version of Princess Poppy done with the paint on the outside and smaller googly eyes. We also used a different plant to show that any pink plant will look great!

Directions to Make Trolls Mason Jars

1. Spray the jars with primer according to package directions. We like this brand for painting mason jars. Adults only should do this part. 
It’s recommended to prime beforehand but not necessarily needed. (We have painted mason jars without and they turn out OK. They won’t paint as smoothly and may require a few extra coats of paint).

Note: We made one version of these jars by pouring the paint inside the mason jar and letting it dry. However, if you want to keep the plant permanently inside the jar this is not recommended. If you are doing it for a party and only need them for a one-time event and do not plan on using water then you can do this method. It will give the jars a glossier, cleaner finish.

2. Paint the jars with pink acrylic paint and then let them dry.

3. Make your “flower headband” with blue and green felt. We cut this to size based on the size of the mason jar lid and then hot glued on (adults only) or use Glue Dots.

Cut out the flowers in blue felt and glue these on. Make enough flowers to go around the whole lid since when you screw on the lid it may not line up exactly.

4.  Now you can add your facial features!  We glued on the googly eyes and nose (nose just cut out from pink felt) and then used the sharpie to add the mouth and eyelashes

5. Now you can add your plant or supplies into the jar! Note: if you want to keep the plant long term, the plant may eventually die from no drainage.  If you want to keep a plant long term you will need to be extra careful to not over water so that water does not sit at the bottom of the jar.

Some options to help with drainage:

– Place a smaller plastic pot inside the mason jar.

– Add some small rocks at the bottom or broken up styrofoam to provide some drainage at the bottom of the jar.

We also love the idea of storing supplies in the jar instead like colored pencils or markers!

Aren’t these the cutest  Trolls mason jars you have ever seen?

  1. Too cute !!! I used fake flowers for my little project instead of the real and thought it worked really well !  I glued a little oasis in the jar and let the kids put the flowers in !! 

  2. What color primer did you use? when i click your brand link it goes to white however it also give the option to select a grey primer to purchase as well.

    1. The Best Ideas for Kids

      White is what you need. When applying go very light because if you spray too much it will drip down. You may need a few coats. You can also paint directly on the jar with white paint and then paint your color of choice on top as well.

  3. How tall are the jars? Trying to order some for a project and having a hard time finding smooth jars in the right size. Thanks.

    1. The Best Ideas for Kids

      Hi Brent – any size would work as long as you can fit the plant in it. These are just the standard small mason jars you can get at a craft store like Michaels. They are much bigger than baby food jars, about 2.5-3 inches tall.

      Hi Becki – these are just small mason jars you can get at a craft store.

  5. Would this work with Krylon White Matte Primer? It’s quite a bit cheaper then the regular primer.

    1. The Best Ideas for Kids

      I would think so Karen! The primer is optional but it helps to make the paint go on much smoother and require less coats, so any primer is better than no primer. Hope that helps! 🙂

    Hi there. Do any of you know the name of the other small flower, not the celosia?
