Easter Bunny Jar Craft 

One of my favorite things to do is to decorate for each season and holiday. The other day I was at the store I saw the cutest bunny jar decoration and I picked it up to grab it and I quickly set it back down because of the price. After looking at it for a few minutes I knew I could easily recreate something even cuter for a fraction of the cost at home in less than an hour. I am so excited to share with you this fun DIY Easter Bunny Jar Craft.

How to make your DIY Easter Bunny Jar Craft

  • Cut bunny-shaped ears out of the burlap ribbon. I cut at an angle to keep the material from fraying. Using a paintbrush, lightly cover each ear with Mod Podge. Set aside to dry completely. It will take approximately 30 minutes for them to fully dry. (Alternatively, you can spray them in a well-ventilated area with a clear acrylic sealer, and they will dry much quicker)  
  • Next, paint the entire inside of the empty jars with white paint. If you see streaks, let the paint dry, and then paint a second coat.

  • Cut a strip of the self-adhesive pearl wrap, and attach it around the top of the jar, right below the ridges.

  • Using a small detail paintbrush, paint the eyes, nose, whiskers, and rosy cheeks on the outside of the glass jar, with the black and pink paint. I painted one bunny with closed eyes, and one open just to give them some character.

  • Cut bunny-shaped ears out of the pink adhesive foam, slightly smaller than the burlap-shaped ears. Remove the backing, and stick to the burlap ears, leaving extra burlap at the bottom.  
  • With a hot glue gun, attach two small white flowers above the eyes of the bunny. Next, hot glue the ears to the inside of the jar, and lastly, hot glue the pom pom tail to the back of the jar.
