Bunnies and rabbits are always a hot trend during Spring and Easter. What's not to love about these cuties right?

DIY Bunny Peekaboo Treat Jars

I was washing some glass jars after finishing the edible contents and set them aside because I thought they would make some cute decor. I wasn't sure just what they would become until I spotted small gold rabbits in the dollar spot at Target. At only $1 each, I grabbed several of the little bunnies and set out to transform my jars into peekaboo treat jars for Easter!

Here's how they came together.

As always, check your local craft stores for the best prices. I'm sharing Amazon links below for your convenience.

Supplies Used:

*I cut out an egg shape from vinyl using my Silhouette, sizing the egg to perfectly fit my jars. Another idea is to print out an egg shape (or trace a cookie cutter), onto packing tape and use that.

You can watch me make these jars in THIS VIDEO. Be sure to read the tips below before beginning this project to ensure you have success with your peekaboo Easter bunny treat jars!

Tips for success

If you're wanting to make these bunny jars, watch the full length video first, then come back and refer to these tips below!
  1. jars and lids should be thoroughly washed and dried so no food odor remains; run through dishwasher a time or two if needed
  2. be sure to press egg sticker snugly to jar, especially around edges, so no paint is able to seep underneath
  3. two coats of chalk paint will likely be needed to get the best coverage
  4. apply rub n buff to bunnies as well so the gold color matches the lids
  5. before applying rub n buff to metal lids, it is recommended to wipe with mineral spirits (or even rubbing alcohol) and lightly sand glossy surfaces
  6. use a tweezer to remove egg shape after paint/wax is thoroughly dry

What to put in the treat jars

Fill DIY jars with small Easter candies, decorative miniature eggs or my delicious and addicting bunny munch mix! These decorated jars would make a wonderful hostess gift at Easter! Follow the tips below to make a simple tag for gifting.

Custom stamped tags for gifting

Don't show up for Easter dinner empty handed! Bring one of these Easter treat jars as a hostess gift and watch faces light up with joy!

Supplies used:

If you're using white cardstock, you can add depth with a little vintage ink. Just a light rubbing will give a deeper look. Stamp your saying, cut into a strip, punch a small hole in one end, thread a button onto the safety pin and pin tag to raffia tied around the jar lids.

It's a little extra step that makes these jars so perfect for gifting! xx
