To make the bunny rabbit template, I’m using the free computer PicMonkey software. Load the website and open up a blank page image.

Click the Ordinary Beasts icon and fill the blank paper with the bunny rabbit shape.

Save the image to your computer. Print it out using your computer and home printer as a “wallet” sized image. Cut the image out using the scissors.

Lay the shape on the stencil vinyl and trace with the black permanent marker.

Cut the rabbit shape out of the stencil vinyl. Cut a total number of rabbit shapes for the number of jars that you are decorating. You will need one for each jar.

Peel the backing off of one of the stencil vinyl bunnies. Adhere it to the center of one of the jars.

Paint over the outside of the mason jar with one color of chalky finish paint. Paint as many coats as needed to cover the surface, letting the paint dry after each coat. For my jars, I’m using a combination of the chalky finish paint and Exterior/Interior paint. The two paints will have different finishes. The Exterior/Interior will be shinier than the chalky finish.

Once the last coat of paint has dried thoroughly, gently peel back the stencil vinyl to reveal the rabbit.

Pair the jar with an Easter themed greeting card from Target for a special gift. This card from the Target greeting card section was my favorite to pair with this jar. Do you use the Target Cartwheel App? I do and like it! Use this Cartwheel offer to save 5% on all greeting cards at Target from 3/12 until 4/15.

I’ve painted up four different colors of the jars. I’m going to use them for decor for a few weeks before gifting them to a few special people in our lives.

This project is easy for even beginner DIY crafters to accomplish. I made the four of these in just a few hours (including drying time) of an afternoon while playing with the kids. They painted; I painted. It was a win-win! Tie the jars off with twine bows to place the finishing touch. Mason jar lids will fit back onto the jars after painting, but be aware that they may chip the paint. Some people like the chippy paint look and will use a piece of sandpaper to create a chippy finish over the jar.

    I have made these jars before for valentines day and many of the holidays. Fun part is trying to decide what stencil you want to make to put on the jars. Plus the decorating and filling them up with all kinds of goodies is endless. Love all the bright and different colors you chose to use. Sometimes I have to do 3 coats of paint depending on the colors chosen.

    These are SO cute. I can see these in my mom’s farmhouse kitchen. She loves Easter decorations and pastels. Also, I love the white chocolate chips in there! I can see doing all our Easter baking, using these awesome bunny mason jars.

    Oh wow, such a cute and colorful idea! I love it! Especially that you can reuse them for several years to come, but I guess your idea of gifting them is much more joyous. Can’t decide which one’s my favorite :)
