Hi! I’m AJ visiting from here to share a little Easter craft with you all that I whipped up last weekend.

This little Easter Bunny Jar craft is pretty simple to make and a great way to give an old jar (mine was once full of jam) a new life! It doesn’t require any fancy crafting supplies, so you might already have all the needed materials on hand.

How to make an Easter bunny jar.

Easter Candy Jar

I drew a silhouette of a bunny on some painters tape. There are TONS of bunny templates online so don’t worry if you are a little shy of drawing free hand. Placed the bunny on the jar and taped off the top of the jar.

After using about 4 coats of acrylic paint and letting each layer dry, you don’t want to rush this part!

I sealed it with a coat of a matte clear sealer….parents would need to help with this part if you are doing this craft with younger children.

Cheap Easy Easter Craft for Kids

After it was dry, I carefully took off the tape (or you’ll peel the paint off too), glued the pom pom on the jar for the bunny’s ‘tail’, and finished it off with a few rounds of bakers twine.

Actually… I should say finished it off AFTER filling it to the brim with Easter candy… which only lasted long enough to take a few photos thanks to my two little boys. 😉

Easy as pie to make, right?! And besides the candy, it didn’t cost me a thing! Woot, woot! I am ALL about simple, being resourceful, and bringing a smile to someone’s day. Which is exactly what I have in store for this little Easter Bunny Jar.

Another use is to create several of these cute jars, make the bunny cut out a bit smaller and write names on the top of each one. Then place them on your table as place cards to make a cute Spring craft idea that doesn’t cost much. Can be used a little gift for everyone to take home with them too!
