DIY Home Made MOO SHINE

Are ya'll ready to make some home made Moo Shine?
I did. Here is how mine turned out.

These are great items to sell at craft booths/fairs.  They make for cute country gifts at Christmas. Or as a souvenir.

They also make adorable party favors to take home, especially for country themed weddings!

Here's how I made it.
All you need is a 
-Mason jar with a lid, (I prefer the old metal ones.)
-E-6000 Glue
-Water (from a bottle.)
-Play set with tiny, plastic cows. 
I got the one pictured above from our local Tractor Supply for only $4.99.
Not many cows in it, but I'm going to dab on some black/white spots to a few to make them look like cows.

Just take some E-6000 glue and glue the little cows to the bottom of your empty Mason Jar.
Let them dry overnight.

I used a wire to lower him down. A wire flimsy enough though to remove easily after it dried.


And then just add some bottled water.  I think using bottled water may help from getting that stink smell after it sits for a while. Guess that's the difference. Not positive but I think that's the reason to use bottled water for crafts like this.

And bam, here is your Mason jar full of MOO SHINE!
I used cold, bottled water. I wish I'd used room temperature water so I wouldn't have had the chill in the first finished picture above.

Speaking of "moo stuff." Yesterday was bittersweet. I said goodbye to a few of my farmland friends, Small-Medium and Large. But I know they've really moved on to greener pastures for sure, as ours were drying up.
