Bunny Bait, an alluring DIY Easter gift idea

Bunny Bait, an alluring DIY Easter gift idea

I had a mission this Easter weekend. Search out the Easter Bunny with the help of my friends. These Bunny Bait jars are sure to do the trick!

I never know when I’m going to get the itch to do something creative. But when it does, Pinterest to the rescue!

Apparently you can put just about anything in a mason jar. And Easter gifts are no exception. Inspired by a few pins, I came up with my own version of this DIY Easter gift idea of Bunny Bait jars. Quick, easy, tasty, and sure to lure in smiles from every age group!

What you’ll need

  • Jars with lids
  • Ribbon
  • Tags (printed with the words – Bunny Bait)
  • Cadbury Mini Eggs
  • Optional (for larger jars): different sized candy eggs and a chocolate bunny


Putting it together

  • Separate out candies by colour
  • Fill the jar by layering in candies
  • Wrap a ribbon around the top of the jar and add a tag

I experimented with different jar and candy sizes. I felt the cutest were the smallest jars, which were spice jars from the dollar store (2 for $1). The Cadbury Mini Eggs were proportionally the best size for the small jars. You can use just about anything as the Bunny Bait. Colourful jelly beans would be a lot of fun.

For the larger jars, I used different sizes and types of candy eggs for a little variety. The chocolate bunny upped the cuteness factor. There not as gorgeous as Martha Stewart’s, but they are still darn cute!
