My kids are wild about Legos, like many kids (and adults!) When I spied this large mason jar at the thrift store, I thought it would make for a fun lamp. My son commented that it looked like a Lego head, and this idea was born. While I used a large jar, you could easily recreate this on a smaller scale with a mason jar from Dollar Tree or one you have in your craft stash.
- Mason jar, on hand
- Paint, on hand
- Clear labels, on hand
- Push light, $1
Step one: Paint the inside of the jar and the lid yellow.
Step two: Print the faces onto clear labels. I used these labels from OnlineLabels.com and formatted my printable to fit that size. Adhere the label face to the jar. I put a different face on two sides, just for variety!
Step three: I used a push light from Dollar Tree that has an adhesive sticker already on it. Just peel off the backing and stick the push light under the lid of the jar.
I don’t screw the lid on fully, just to make the push light easier to access. Now you have a fun night light that makes cute room decor during the daytime! This jar could also double as storage if you don’t need a light. Another idea is to use a milk jug instead of a mason jar and turn it into a Valentine holder, similar to this Dollar Store Crafts project I shared recently. Have fun building and crafting!
