Easter is such a fun time of the year – all of the bright colors, cute bunnies and chicks and, of course, the CANDY is the ultimate inspiration!
I always like to give gifts to my family and friends at Easter – this Easter Bunny Jelly Bean Jar makes a super cute, quick and easy gift for anybody sweet on your list!
Here’s what you need:
4″ Smoothfoam ball
Kunin Eco-Fi Rainbow Classicfelt – White
Americana Paints – Light Buttermilk, Indian Turquoise, Petal Pink, Titanium White and Lamp Black
Wide-mouth mason jar
Fabric scrap and ribbons
Low-temp hot glue gun
Paintbrushes, serrated knife, pencil, scissors, black marker
Jelly beans (of course!)
Cut off the bottom of the ball (opposite the end with the pilot hole) with a serrated knife to create a flat surface.
Cut out two bunny ears from the white felt (trace a template on cardstock first if needed).
Insert a sharpened pencil into the flat surface of the Smoothfoam ball to use as a handle for painting. Paint the ball and one side of each ear with Light Buttermilk, let dry.
Push the bottom of both bunny ears into the pilot hole at the top of the ball with the pencil.
Paint the nose and cheeks with Petal Pink as shown. Paint the eyes with Indian Turquoise, let dry. Draw the nose outline, muzzle, whiskers and eyebrows with a black marker. Paint the pupils in both eyes with Lamp Black, let dry. Paint a highlight in both pupils with Titanium White, let dry.
Glue the bunny head to the lid of the mason jar. Wrap and tie a bow (made from fabric scrap and ribbons) around the neck of the jar. Fill your Easter jar decoration with jelly beans and give it to your favorite somebunny!
