Easter Bunny Jars

Kid-made Easter Bunny JarsWho does not love the Easter Bunny ?  Both of my kids love the idea of a cute bunny delivering some chocolate – I mean what is not to love right – you get chocolate and my kids love chocolate.

My daughter wanted to do an Easter Bunny craft similar to her butterfly jars so we came up with these cute Easter Bunny Jars.  We used two bottles from our recycling and the kids coloured in the bunny picture from the FREE Twinkl Easter colouring sheets. I did reduce the size of the bunny picture so it would fit onto our jars (we printed ours 2 to a page).

Once the kids have finished making their rainbow bunny’s we cut them out (I did have to help my youngest with some of the cutting).

We stuck them onto our glass jars with our Mod Podge 8 oz Waterbase Sealer, Glue and Finish, Gloss (love this stuff ).

The idea was to put some easter eggs in the jar but as the kids only have a few small easter eggs (trying not to overdo the chocolate) we first filled our jars with some shredded green paper and then put our eggs ontop.  The green shredded paper was a way to fill the jars up but I actually think it works really well.

And a finishing touch my daughter added some of her rainbow ribbon around the top (this ribbon was a present from her aunt) and my son choose to use some green and blue wool on his.  He wanted a handle – which we made for him – if you do add a handle please do make sure it is secure.

All in all it is was easy and straightforward to make but they do look cute.
