As soon as I saw the animal storage jars on House to Home I knew I had to make them, but when and what for?!? So when I saw a similar idea on the German site, Living at Home but this time with bunnies on top as an Easter packaging idea, I knew this is what I could make them for. I set about finding some cute plastic bunnies and spray paint in my Easter colours. It took me longer to find the right colour spray paints but I was delighted to discover that Fred Aldous sells a really large array of coloured spray paints from Montana and that Montana White is glossy whilst Montana Black is matte. I so loved spraying the jars that I ended up spraying my metal windmills that were looking a bit worse for wear having sat in the garden for a few years. I think I might have a new addiction, so stay tuned for more of my adventures in spray painting... who knows what!?!
Bunny jars for Easter
Tools and Materials
- Sitting rabbit
- Standing rabbit
- Glass jars (I bought three and three were old jam jars that I cleaned and removed the labels from)
- Montana White spray paint, Soap colour
- Montana Black spray paint, Cocktail colour
- Montana Black spray paint, Pink Lemonade colour
- Plasti-kote super satin paint in mint
- Super glue (a hot glue gun didn't work)
Bunny jars for Easter, How-to step by step
Start by carefully gluing the rabbit to the jar lid and leave to dry. Place lid on a platform you don't need (I used an old glass pot I did not need anymore). Following the instructions on the spray paint, carefully spray the glued rabbit and lid until you have an even coat of paint and the original colour of both the rabbit and lid are no longer visible. Leave to dry. Fill with Easter treats.
Have a sweet day!
