Ho Ho Ho my recycled teddy bear cookie jars say! With an easy coat of paint with an Testors AirBrainz Airbrush Kit , Mini Powairpod AirBrainz Air Compressor and some free downloadable graphics from below you too can upcycle a bunch of Animal cracker teddy bear jars into a fun light up Christmas decoration. Smaller ones are available on Amazon and larger ones are available at Target.
I can’t decide which way I like them better, lit up at night or during the day when they look like giant gummy bears.
These were so easy to make. I simply airbrushed them using a variety of Testors Craft Acrylic paint.
This is what it starts out looking like after one coat of Testors Ultra Gloss green paint.
Then after two coats.
Here is the red bear complete using Testors red matt paint completed and the green one almost done. You can see the difference in the green gloss and the red matt finish.
Simply keep airbrushing light layers until you have full coverage.
Lighter colors like the Testors Ultra Gloss White feature the bear’s details better than the darker colors.
Once you have your recycled teddy bear jars all painted download and print out these labels or make some of your own.
Fill the teddy bear jars with low temp Christmas lights (standard ones will be TOO HOT!!!!) and top off with Santa hats.
