Bunny Mason Gift Jars with Printables

Bunny Mason Jars_Feature

Here’s a really fun and simple gift idea for the Easter season.  I put these together for my daughter’s teachers.

Here’s what you will need:

  • Jelly Sized Mason Jar with Ring and Lid
  • Contact paper (I use clear)
  • Spray Paint
  • X-Acto Knife
  • Bunny Cut Out Template (for download HERE)
  • Ribbon or twine for Trim
  • Goodies for Filling
  • Hoppin’ Great Tag (Optional. You can make your own or print & use MINE )

There are 2 ways to do this project. The first is to cut out the Bunny and spray it, leaving the rest of the jar clear. This is how to do it if you want your finished jars to look like this…

1. Tape the bunny cut out onto your contact paper. Then cut it out with your X-Acto knife. Keep the center cut out area but set it aside.

2. Take another piece of contact paper and lay it over your cut out area. This helps you to be able to more accurately locate your shape and it helps keep the shape from stretching or becoming deformed when applying it to your jar.

3. After your bunny shape is stuck on your Mason jar, very carefully & slowly peel off the piece of contact paper that helped hold it’s shape. Then go ahead and mask off the rest of your Mason jar.

4. Spray paint your cut out area and let it dry. Also, go ahead and spray paint the outside of your ring and the top of the Mason jar’s lid.

5. Once all parts are dry, very carefully and slowly peel off the contact paper.

That’s it for this method.

Now, if you want your finished jars to look like this, here’s how to do it…

1. Tape the bunny cut out onto your contact paper. Then cut it out with your X-Acto knife. If you made a jar using the method described above you can use the bunny cut out that you set aside.

2. Take another piece of contact paper and lay it over your cut out area. This helps you to be able to more accurately locate your shape and it helps keep the shape from stretching or becoming deformed when applying it to your jar.

3. Locate your bunny cut out. With this method, the entire rest of the jar will be solid and the bunny shape will be the window that your candy shows through.

4. Mask off the top of your Mason jar. You don’t want paint to get onto the inside and come into contact with the goodies.

5. Go ahead and spray the jar. Also spray the ring and top of the lid. Let it dry completely. Then you can go ahead and slowly & carefully peel away the contact paper cut out.

That’s it! Fill ’em up with jelly beans, chocolates, or whatever yummy goodness you want. I think these are a super cute, affordable and special gift idea for teachers, neighbors or just anyone you want to wish a Happy Easter.
