I love Easter/springtime because of all the cute things like flowers, pastels, and bunnies. My 3-year-old daughter is OBSESSED with bunnies and quite honestly, so am I. I love making candy jars because they are adorable and perfect for gift giving! I just got some of the new Siser adhesive vinyls so I wanted to try them out for this project.
Things you will need:
-Jar with a lid
-Electronic cutting machine (I use a CAMEO 3)
-Felt (I used white and light pink)
-Gridlined transfer tape
-Siser EasyPSV removable vinyl (I used black & carnation tea)
-Siser EasyPSV permanent vinyl (I used sea glass)
Step 1: Cut and Weed Vinyls
I used my CAMEO to cut out my vinyl eyelashes, nose, and "some bunny loves you" quote. I found the Siser vinyls to be a little bit thinner than the Oracal ones so I had to adjust the cut settings. I used settings: Blade 1, Speed 3, Force/Thickness 12. Weed the inside of the letters using your favorite weeding tool.
Step 2: Cut & Glue Felt Ears
Use a pencil or pen to draw your ears on the felt. Cut out two bigger white ones and two smaller pink ones for the inside of the ears. Once you cut them out, use a hot glue gun to glue the pink ears onto the white larger ones
Step 3: Apply Vinyls & Glue PomPom Bunny Tail
My favorite transfer tape is the EV gridlined tape! I love that I can see the lines to help me line things up. Use transfer tape to apply the eyelashes, nose and quote on the back.
Once you have applied the vinyl, use a hot glue gun to adhere the pompom tail on the bunny jar.
I MEAN! How cute is that?!?!
Step 4: Glue on Ears and Flower Crown
Since we want the jar to open up easily to retrieve the goodies, be sure to glue the felt bunny ears onto the outer rim of the jar.
I wanted to create a floral crown for the magical bunny jar. Since there is a huge gap between the ears, I decided to cut a thin strip of felt and glue the flowers on there. Now, I just connected the strip to each of the ears so that it sat nice and even on them as seen in the picture below.
And there you have it! An adorable bunny candy jar to give away--or to keep for yourself ;)
Get creative with the colors, flowers, and candy!
