Materials:

These fun LEGO Storage Jars are surprisingly easy and quick to make. Just follow these simple steps:

1. Take all of the packaging off the jars, and place them inside a cardboard box.

2. Read the spray paint instructions carefully. Follow the instructions and spray the jars accordingly. You might find it easier to have your hand inside the jar and rotate it at a distance as you spray the paint. We did two layers of paint, leaving half an hour between layers.

3. We waited until the next day before adding the facial features using black and red permanent markers.

4. Finally, choose how you want to fill the jars. We went for organizing by colour!

Top tip: we would definitely recommend wearing gloves if you want to avoid looking like a LEGO figure!!
