I love giving and receiving handmade gifts from the heart. They are just that much more special when someone takes the time to create something for you. Here’s an easy handmade birthday gift idea that you can make. I found the mini pottery cupcakes at As You Wish and painted them there. I made a few, so I could have them on hand for future birthdays. You can read below how I attached the cupcakes to the mason jars. If the gift recipient isn’t a cupcake lover (blasphemy!), you could fill the jar with candy, body scrub, lotion, etc.
White chalk paint
Mini cupcake pottery from As You Wish
Step 1: Head into As You Wish to paint some miniature cupcake pottery. Once fired in the kiln, bring home and we’re ready to make our jars!
Step 2: Paint the lid of the mason jar with 2-3 coats of white chalk paint, allowing to dry in between coats. Don’t forget to paint the rims of the lids as well.
Step 3: Using E600 glue, glue the pottery cupcake to the lid of the mason jar. Follow the instructions on the glue packaging and allow time to dry.
Step 4: Place 2 cupcakes, without their wrappers, inside a mason jar.
Step 5: Screw the cupcake lid onto the jar.
Step 6: Attach a wooden fork to the jar with a piece of colorful washi tape.
Step 7: Dig in or give away as a birthday gift!
