The last time I participated in a mason jar week with friends, I shared how to paint your own cute sloth mason jar. This time around, I am showing you how easy it is to paint a sweet panda mason jar. If you like these animal mason jar tutorials, I might turn them into a series. Soon we will have a whole zoo of mason jar critters!
DIY PANDA MASON JAR
WHAT YOU NEED TO PAINT A PANDA JAR
You can use whatever acrylic paint you have on hand, but I love marbling paint for painting the inside of jars and vases. The thinner consistency allows you to coat the inside of the jar quickly with great coverage!

HOW TO PAINT AN EASY PANDA MASON JAR
- Add a small amount of white marbling paint into the jar. Rotate the jar so that the paint coats the interior of the entire jar.
- Set the jar upsidedown on top of a disposable cup or a paper towel so the excess paint can drip out. Let dry.
- Use a paintbrush to add two large black circles to the front of the jar. These will be the panda’s eyes.
If you don’t get full coverage with one coat, let the paint dry and add a second coat.
- Add a small nose shape with black craft paint. The shape should look like a rounded upsidedown triangle.
- Use a detail brush to add two small curves to create the panda’s mouth.
- Next, add two small pink ovals under the black eyes as the panda’s cheeks.
- Finally, dip the handle end of your paintbrush in white craft paint and dot on small white reflects in the panda’s eyes.
This is a great little gift jar for a friend who adores big, clumsy, lovable panda bears!
