Project Instructions

  • 1
    Wrap two straws with hemp cord to cover leaving once inch bare at the bottom. Glue wood bead on top of each straw. Cut out pennant shape and hand print P-A-R-T-Y on the paper pennant. Glue hemp cord to back of each pennant and attach each end to the top of the covered straws.

    Trace around the mason jar lid insert to create paper insert. Make two and glue together for extra strength. Punch hole on each side of the insert and place into the mason jar lid ring. Insert one covered straw into each hole.
  • 3
    Add a personal message to the Jungle sign and print on the Bright White cardstock. Glue to the straws to create the sign banner.

    Fill mason jar with assorted candy. We chose Lime Green and zebra print candy to complete the theme. Glue the safari zebra or other animal on top of lid in front of sign. Print out the template and cut out the safari hat shape. Use a Green marker to color in the band.

    Handprint a party or birthday message on the safari hat. Cut out and glue to the front of the mason jar.
