DIY Bunny Jars

These little bunny jars are the perfect way to share some sweets on Easter. We filled ours up with jelly beans and we’re thinking they might nestle in some Easter baskets! Supplies: glass jars, white acrylic paint (or spray paint!), a paint brush, white and pink felt, scissors, hot glue, pink and black markers. Directions: 1. Paint the jars with the white acrylic paint. If you intend to fill the jars with candy later, remove the lid before painting and try not to paint too far up the neck of the glass jar. This will help the lid twist on and off easily. 2. Cut bunny ear shapes out of the felt using sharp scissors. Make the white ears a little larger than the pink

Monogrammed Easter Eggs

We are always looking for new ways to decorate Easter eggs – and the easier the better! You only need two things to create these personalized eggs (three if you count the egg!) and they couldn’t be simpler. Your little bunnies will be so happy to see their initials! (Adapted from this tutorial. How cute are those bunnies!) Supplies: alphabet stickers, Sharpie markers, and hard boiled eggs. Directions: 1. Center a sticker onto a dry egg. Press it down with your thumbnail to squeeze out all the air bubbles. 2. Use a Sharpie in a bright color to make dots around the sticker. Concentrate the dots around the outline of the sticker and spread them out as you move outwards away from the sticker. 3.

DIY Tissue Paper Flowers

Happy First Day of Spring! If you’re having a dreary start to your Spring Equinox like we are, maybe some flowers will brighten up your day! We made these tissue paper flowers using the same method used to make these tissue paper pom poms. Instead of fluffing up the paper on both sides to make a globe shape, we pulled the paper upwards only to create a flower. Supplies: tissue paper, scissors, floral wire. Directions: 1. Stack 5-7 pieces of tissue paper (ours were 6″x6″ squares) and fold it up accordion style. 2. Twist the floral wire around the middle of the folded tissue paper and create a “stem.” 3. Cut each end of the accordion into a semi circle shape. This will create the scalloped
