I’m pretty delighted to tell you that I’ve been featured by Mammasaurus as part of the weekly Parenting Pin It Party. I’m all about having fun with a glue gun and my Playmobil clock is one of my favourite projects so far.
I have more Playmobil fun for you today as I just can’t resist those colourful little plastic people! You know I love to hang around on Pinterest and I’m sure you’ve all seen the animal topped glass jars which have been spray painted one colour.
How to make Playmobil jar toppers
I thought it would be fun to do a Playmobil version as the toddler has just had his room decorated and he loves Playmobil!
I was able to use items from around the house. I raided my supply of empty Bonne Maman jars, picked a handful of vintage Playmobil figures and got out my glue gun. The only thing I needed to purchase was a can of Plasti-kote enamel spray.
The first step was to glue each figure onto the Bonne Maman lid and leave to dry over night.
The next day I sprayed each lid by attaching it to a long stick with a blob of blu tack. This meant I could apply the spray evenly by slowly turning it round whilst I sprayed.
Again, I left them over night to ensure they had dried properly.
I love these fun little jars and they are perfect for storing little treasures in any room in the house!
