Easter In A Jar

Here is a little something that I threw together 
last year when trying to spruce up my 
breakfast bar for spring.

I had trouble trying to come up with a name for 
this thing. Basically it’s a decorated mason jar 
with 3 Easter eggs on candy sticks!

Materials needed:

Mason Jar
Scrapbook Paper
Twine
Ribbon
Buttons
Candy Sticks
Hot Glue Gun & Glue
Spray Glue or Mod Podge
Foam Easter Eggs
Basket Filler
& Whatever you may have lying 
around to decorate the eggs.

The mason jar embellishments are pretty self explanatory so I won’t dwell on instructions for that.

For the eggs: 
Poke the candy sticks through the foam eggs and secure with a little hot glue.

I wrapped one egg in what I call furry wool!
One in twine that I painted a lime green 
(securing the twine & wool with hot 
glue throughout  the wrapping process).
And one I covered with glitter (use the spray 
glue or Mod Podge for this)…gotta love me 
some glitter!
I filled the jar with basket filler to give the sticks a little something to rest in allowing more control of how they are positioned in the jar. And that’s it!
