DIY Recycled Easter Bunny Vases

$5
15 Minutes
Easy

Easter is just around the corner and I can't believe how early it is this year, April 5th. I've been asked to host Easter and my house is very small so the thought of it is stressing me out! So naturally what do I do? I craft.... or eat dip. So why not do both. I had a left over salsa container (coincidence?) that I thought would make a great vase for the dinner table on Easter. I ran the jar through the dishwasher. ‪

I was surprised how easy the label peeled off. I accredit this to being more of a plastic label then the normal paper labels you find on pasta sauce.

Using white paint cover your salsa jar evenly. Tip: I put my hand inside the jar and hold the jar up as I am painting. This allows 360 degree access while painting. Also just paint to the edge of the bottom. No need to paint the bottom of the jar.

Now how cute is this bunny! I had seen one similar in Country Living but they had added some twine to the top. I think that was just what it was missing.

Now you could make plenty of different animals or creatures for all different holidays. Chicks, snowmen, reindeer, Santa and the list goes on. So I know that I am going to think twice now before throwing away that salsa jar or tomato sauce jar. Especially because I think this bunny needs some friends. This was such a quick, inexpensive and fun way to impress your Easter guests. Now I had all the supplies so the only cost to me was purchasing some daffodils for the vase.

    Wow, lovely Easter bunny vase. You have used the jar very cleverly and the end result is really very cute. I have done this project with an old plastic jar and it was a hit that year. But I must say this one looks much better. Thanks for the post. I am definitely going to make it for my home.
