It’s also a nice hostess gift to make if you’re heading over to a friend or relative’s house on Easter for brunch. Or, if you’re the one serving brunch, use the cuties as a centerpieces for your table. The options are endless!

Materials needed:

  • Mason jar
  • Stiff felt
  • Glue dots
  • Mod Podge
  • Foam brush
  • Fine glitter
  • Scissors
  • Pom-pom (for bunny tail)

Instructions:

Step 1: Spread Mod Podge over your mason jar with your foam brush.

Step 2: Sprinkle glitter over the Mod Podge. Once it's dry, repeat steps 1 and 2. (They really do need at least two coats of glitter.) Tip: Contain the glitter by placing a baking pan under the mason jar as you sprinkle the glitter. The pan will collect the glitter and you can just easily wash away the glitter in the sink.

Step 3: While the mason jar is drying, cut the face shapes and feet out of stiff felt. (Don’t forget to cut out a felt circle to go on top of the lid.)

Step 4: Use the glue dots to stick together the two-toned bunny ears and chick fuzz and the eyes and then to adhere them to the jar. Be sure to add the pom-pom tail to the bunny.

All finished and ready to be filled up with your favorite Easter treats!
