My mother had an old pork rind container that she was getting rid of, and she asked me if I would like it.
Would I? Oh yes, I would. I’ve seen lego head containers floating around on Pinterest and I knew the boys would love one! I made it, and you can, too.
You Will Need:
- A large plastic container with lid (from pork rinds, cheese balls, etc.)
- Yellow spray paint
- Pencil (optional)
- Acrylic craft paint in black and white
- Small paintbrush
- Clear spray protectant
Step one: remove the label.
There are a lot of ways to remove stickers from plastic; I just soaked a washcloth and let it rest on the label until it could be scraped off, then spent a little time scrubbing off the residue. Voilà!
Step two: spray paint!
Multiple thin coats cover and stick better than one heavy coat. Be sure to get the whole surface, allowing it to dry well in between.
Step three: add the face!
I lightly penciled the outline of the features onto the container before painting them in. Allow to dry thoroughly between colors, and dry completely before proceeding to –
Step four: spray!
Coat with clear spray to protect the paint from chipping off. Let dry completely before surrendering it to the children! See how easy that was?
