If you’re looking for a sweet Easter table or shelf decoration, these Easter mason jars a great project for an afternoon or to do with little ones.
With just a few supplies and a cute pom tail, turn a simple mason jar into a cute bunny. Kids absolutely love making these for Easter, by the way.
These Easter mason jars are perfect for holding candy or would even make a fun alternative to traditional Easter baskets (maybe a neighbor gift?). There are really a ton of uses! Let’s get started.
Easter Mason Jar
Gather These Supplies
- Mason Jar (or other recycled glass jars)
- Tissue Paper
- Mod Podge Gloss
- White Cardstock
- Pom Poms
- Hot Glue Gun
Take the lid off the jars and wipe the insides down with a cloth. Brush a thin layer of Mod Podge on the inside.
Rip the tissue paper into medium pieces.
Stick the tissue paper pieces to the inside of the jar and let dry for several minutes. Then brush on another thin layer on top.
Continue applying tissue paper around the inside of the jar until the whole thing is covered. Allow to dry overnight or until the Mod Podge is fully dry.
TIP: you can add the tissue paper to the outside of the jar too. It’s just a different look; there’s not any reason you would choose one or another.
I will say that you can safely put wrapped candy in the jar if the tissue paper is on the inside. However, you wouldn’t want to put unwrapped candies (Mod Podge isn’t food safe) or anything wet (like water for flowers).
Use the hot glue gun to add a pom pom towards the bottom of the jar in the back.
Draw and cut out paper rabbit ears from the white cardstock.
Add a slit at the bottom with the scissors. Fold the slit and wedge it at the top of the jar.
You can also glue the rabbit ears to the inside of the jar. Fold the rest of the ear over.
Now the jar looks like the back of little bunnies! Fill your Easter mason jars with flowers, candy or colored eggs.
