How to make it…
You will need:
- Kitchen Craft Preserving Jar 500ml
- Faux Spring Flowers in pink, white, yellow and blue
- Foam Sheets A4 in pink, white, yellow and blue
- Tacky Glue 300ml
- Hot Melt 7mm Mini Glue Gun
- Hot Melt Glue Sticks 7mm 50 pack
- Uni Paint Black Bullet Tip Permanent Marker
Start by making the bunny ears and nose for your treat jar. On a foam sheet, draw around an ear shape. Repeat to make the other ear.
Draw a nose shape onto the same piece of foam as the ears.
Using scissors, cut out the ears and the nose. Make sure to cut two small lines at the bottom of each ear, so you can fold it later.
Using a different colour foam, draw around a smaller ear shape, and repeat, before cutting both shapes out.
Using the tacky glue, stick one of the smaller foam ear shapes into the centre of one of the larger foam ear shapes, and then repeat to create the second ear.
Take the craft jar lid and, using the hot glue gun, stick one of the faux flowers onto it. Repeat with another flower and a bit of foliage, making sure they’re all facing the same direction and there’s enough space for the ears to be glued behind them.
Now fold the bottom of an ear so it can be glued onto the jar. To do this, take the two outer flaps and fold them so one is on top of the other, then stick together. Repeat for the second ear.
Stick the flat bottom of one of the ears onto the jar lid behind the flowers, holding it in place until the glue dries and it can stand up. Repeat with the other ear.
Next, using the hot glue gun again, stick the nose onto the jar.
Finally, using the permanent marker pen, draw a pair of eyes above the nose along with a few whiskers either side of it.
To finish off, fill your bunny jar with lots of yummy Easter treats and enjoy!
