Hey girls! Happy Thursday! Easter is now almost just a month away, and I couldn’t be more excited!! I love Easter, I love decorating eggs, I love hiding eggs, I love eating eggs. Who’s with me?! All I need are bunnies frolicking around my yard and endless tulip fields and I’d be in my happy place… haha!
Crafts are my also my favorite… especially when they’re easy. I absolutely love the way this Easter craft turned out and I can’t wait to share it with you. You’ll be amazed at how simple it really is (not to mention cheap). Make these jars with your kids, with your girlfriends, or by yourself! They’re so fun to create and are really the perfect Easter DIY project ever! They’d look amazing on your counter, housing yummy Easter treats or they’d make the perfect Easter gift for a friend! Fill them with anything you like. I filled mine with Cadbury’s chocolate eggs (because who doesn’t love those things?!). But, without further ado, let’s get started:
Creating your own DIY Easter Mason Jar
What you’ll need:
- Mason Jars (mine are from the dollar section of Target)
- Spray paint, color of your choice
- Bunny figurines (I found mine at Michaels for a couple bucks each)
- Hot glue gun
Hot glue your bunny figurine to the top of your mason jar’s lid. Be sure it’s really on there, so you don’t have to try to re-glue it after it’s painted. Don’t worry if any glue is showing, it will be covered with spray paint and become much less noticeable.
Spray paint your bunny-topped mason jar lid the color of your choice. Be sure to cover all of the bunny! Double check after the first coat that you’ve gotten all the nooks & crannies covered!
Let your lid dry and then give it a second coat.
Once your lid is completely dry (after about an hour), hot glue your twine to the back of your lid (near the tail of the bunny, or any other place the beginning of the twine will be less obvious). Wrap the twine around the side of the lid, hot gluing it down wherever you see fit. Fill your jars with Easter basket grass & your favorite Easter treats and viola… you’re finished!
What would you fill your DIY Easter candy jar with?
