Begin with buying vinyl stickers and several mason jars made of glass. Cut a sticker in a bunny shape. Next, apply a sticker to a jar (to its smooth side). You need to ensure that the sticker adheres completely to the jar. So, press it firmly on all edges. Now you will need Chalky Finish or spray paint. Apply one coat to the whole jar and let it dry for about 10 minutes. Don’t wait until the paint is completely dry. Instead, peel up that bunny vinyl sticker carefully while the coat of paint is a bit wet. If you decide to use spray paint, just keep in mind that it can easily get inside the jar unless you place it upside down. When the paint gets dry completely, you can wrap the jar with colorful lace trim or ribbon, but it’s optional. Air it for a while so that no smell of the paint is left and only then put candies inside. Now, this jar is ready!

Each mason jar bunny you can see here is super cute, don’t you agree? You can put any candies in these jars, but how would you like to decorate the jar itself?

We can suggest that you use jar toppers in bunny silhouettes for the Easter crafts. And these jar toppers should not necessarily be edible. They can be plastic. And by the way, you can easily find little plastic bunnies in any Dollar Store – they are not expensive at all. A bunny can be painted in any nice color and then glued to a lid. How charming and creative!

FAQ: Easter Candy Jar

Why is candy given on Easter?

The appeal of Easter candy is thought to be influenced by the end of Lent. For many Christians, Lent means giving up sweets, so Easter is the first time in almost a month that they may eat chocolate. In most years, Easter is only second to Halloween in terms of sweets gifts offered.

What does Easter Bunny have to do with Jesus?

Easter eggs, bunnies, and fluffy yellow chicks in gardening hats all have pagan origins. They were added to the Easter celebration in addition to the Christian custom of commemorating the day Jesus Christ rose from the dead. The rabbit was chosen as its symbol because of the animal’s rapid rate of reproduction.
