Colorful Jar

Jarron Multicolor



C and me made this beautiful colorful jar weeks ago, she was very impressed with the finish product.
You will need:
-A glass jar (recycled from our jam)
-About 200 rocks ( I didn't count them but It is my guess..my goodness we use all of them and it was exactly all we needed).I will suggest not too big or not too small.
-Acrylic paint and a paintbrush
-Tree branches (we collected from our backyard)
-scissors
- about 6 glue sticks and a glue gun

C y yo hicimos esta hermosa vasija de colores, C quedo muy impresionada con el producto final.
Usted necesitará:
-1 embase de vidrio (reciclado de nuestra mermelada)
-Alrededor de 200 rocas (no los conté, pero es mi suposición .. usamos todas las rocas y era exactamente todo lo que neceseitamos). De preferencia no demasiado grandes o demasiado pequeñas.
-Pintura acrílica y un pincel
-Ramas del árbol(de nuestro jardin)
-Tijeras
- Cerca de 6 tubos de pegamento y una pistola de pegamento


First C collected all the rocks from our front yard..She had lots of fun doing this!

Primer C consiguio todas las rocas de nuestro jardín .. Ella se divirtio mucho haciendo esto!


Next we rinse the rocks with water and soap and then we start painting them.We let them dry over night.

A continuación enjuagar las rocas con agua y jabón y luego empezar a pintar. Las dejamos secar toda la noche..

Using a glue pistol start gluing the rocks on the jar.(I put the glue in the jar..not in the rock..that way C doesn't burn her little fingers, she was very careful anyways).

Utilizando una pistola de cola pegamos las rocas en el jarrón.Puse el pegamento en el jarron ...No lo puse en las rocas..de ese modo C no se quema los dedos..fue muy facil y ella muy cuidadosa.

Looking good..

Vamos por buen camino..

After we finished gluing the rocks, I glued tinny cuts of brunches to the top of our jar.

Después de terminar de pegar las rocas, pegue pequenas ramas a la parte superior de nuestro jarron.


Here is our rainbow jar!! I love it...so perfect and imperfect at the same time.

Aqui esta nuestro jarron terminado!!Esta hermoso me encanta tan perfecto desperfecto a la vez.

We also use it as a color pencil holder..C loves using it this way as well.

Tambien lo usamos como porta lapices de colores..A mi hija le encanta usarlo de este modo tambien.

That is adorable! I love that it is a simple project that also takes time and has several stages. Very fun.
