Using craft acrylic paint, clean baby food jars, and stickers we created these cute votive holders.
(Project note: Don't have any baby food jars? Any small, smooth sided glass jar will work too!)
To paint them I set out craft acrylics in a variety of blue shades.
The kids painted inside the jars. This makes the painting process much easier and even a little bit less messy. Little Brother even got interested and started his own jar (which I finished up for him.)
Afterwards we put them out to dry.
When they were done drying the kids used fish and ocean themed scrapbook stickers to decorate the outside of the jars. Our finished projects looked a little like a fish bowl or aquarium.
We used battery operated candles to make them glow. We enjoyed ours on the dinner table.
Have you checked out our All Things Ocean themed Pinterest board yet? We'll definitely be adding these there and sharing some other great ideas too!
