Easter Egg Jar!

If you read my last post, you probably think I have a bit of an Easter egg obsession. I don't, exactly, but I do like Easter decorations, and since I am still working on my tableau of spring stuff around the house, I figured I would post about it. On a recent Target visit, there was this cute Mason jar-like container with Easter eggs inside that was covered with burlap. It was like ten bucks, but as usual, I said to myself, "I can make my own!"

I had four plastic decorated eggs that I bought two years ago on super-after Easter clearance, as well as some cute fabric that covered a Mason jar gift I got a while back. Cut the fabric into a nice square and ripped off the ribbon hangers on each of the eggs (never had much use to hang them anywhere)

Then I cleaned the label off this cute jar that some super yummy banana gummies came in (look for them if you're ever at Williams Sonoma!) by running it under warm water under the sink. It came off surprisingly pain free.

Then I took my square of cute fabric and secured it on top of my jar with a rubberband. Covered the rubberband up with a bow made from some ribbon I saved from our wedding.

And wal-ah! Check out my cute new egg jar! I didn't make the bunny family sitting next to the jar, that was an awesome and adorable gift from my Mom a few years ago. =)

P.S. Including this post in another link party! =)

  1. So lovely idea! I have some beautiful old empty jars, which would be perfect for this. Maybe I will try it for Easter!
