Happy Easter! I know that it's a little late, but you know how it goes! I just wanted to share some Easter goodies that I made this year.
This is a little goodie jar that I saw on pinterest! I have to admit that I thought it was gonna be super easy to make, but was a little harder than I thought. I tweaked it a little here and there, and just went with what worked!
To make this, I used edible grass, egg shaped candies, candy bunnies, mason jar, ribbons, and stickers. The edible grass is very interesting, the green grass that I used here is green apple flavored, there is also little yellow bunny confetti that is banana flavored. Stuff the grass inside the jar, I used a spoon to push it down and flatten it a little. I added the egg shaped candy to the jar. Through trial and error, I decided to leave the bunny in the wrapper. I've seen on pinterest that people use chocolate bunnies, and put them unwrapped in the jar. I did not use chocolate bunnies, just because they were a little on the pricey side, and I wanted to keep the cost down. The price of one chocolate bunny, was the same as a pack of five bunnies. I got Reese's and cookies and cream bunnies. Since they were a little on the smaller side, I opted to put two together in one jar. I put them back to back, so you could see it front and back in the jar. I also want to add that the jar that I used, is completely smooth. No writing, or designs on the jar. I got them at Walmart, I was excited to find these babies! I wedged the bunnies in the middle of the grass, and added more eggs around the bunnies to make Iittle more secure. Adjust things around to your liking. Now to add a little sass to the jar, I wrapped the outer rim of the jar with grosgain ribbon, and put stickers on the top of the jar to jazz it up a little. To top it of I added an Easter tag!
I love how these came out! It's so festive, and doesn't it just make you wanna smile?! :)
The fun thing about Easter, is that you can use pretty much any color! It doesnt have to be just pastels!
What do you love about Easter?!
