Easter Candy Jar DIY

Simple supplies from the Dollar Store transform into the cutest Easter Candy Jar to fill with candy for special Easter morning treats.

With my kiddos getting older, I need to be creative when it comes to giving at Easter time. I love creating small things that I can give them just to keep the fun in holidays! This Easter Bunny Jar is perfect for kids that are 1 or 100!

Here’s what you will need to make this super adorable Easter Candy Jar:

  • Small Glass Jars with Metal Lids – Dollar Store
  • Ceramic Easter Painting Sets; Bunny and Chick – Dollar Store
  • Multi-Surface Craft Paint – Light Blue, and Yellow
  • Low Temp Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
  • Paintbrush
  • Ribbon – ¼” wide Satin Pastel Rainbow
  • Needle Nose Pliers
  • Ruler
  • Scissors

Gather all materials and remove supplies from packaging.  Using needle nose pliers, remove the metal loop from the top of the ceramic bunny and chick figurines.  Attach the bunny and the chick to the metal lids of each jar with a glue gun and glue sticks.  Let low temp glue cool completely before moving on to the next step.

Basecoat the bunny lid with light blue multi-surface craft paint and the chick lid with yellow multi-surface craft paint.  Let dry.

The multi-surface craft paint will adhere to the metal lid and ceramic figurines without chipping or peeling like acrylic craft paint will.

Topcoat the bunny lid with light blue multi-surface craft paint and the chick lid with yellow multi-surface craft paint.  Let dry, and apply additional coats, if necessary.

Once dry, screw the lids onto the jars.  Tie pastel rainbow ribbon around the neck of the glass jar and finish with a bow.  Trim ends of ribbon diagonally to prevent fraying.

Remove the lids from the glass jars, fill with fun colors of Easter grass and your favorite assorted candies and chocolates.

Let the kiddos help create and fill the Easter Candy Jar to give as gifts to family, friends, and neighbors.

Makes a great Teacher gift as well!

Mix and match ceramic shapes and paint colors to create an entire set of jars.
