How to make your own Easter jars

Create with paint! Habitat by Resene

Paint decorative jars for your children to keep their Easter goodies!

Painted colourful Easter jars

You will need:

Top tip: For a sparkling finish use Resene FX Metallic paint.

NB: You can also put the tape bunnies onto the inside of the jar, tip the Resene testpot of paint into the jar, swirl it around, tip out the excess and let it dry. This will leave the outside of the jar glossy rather than with a chalky finish.


Step 1

Step one: Draw a bunny shape out of paper, using coins as templates.

Step two: Lay down strips of the wide masking tape, overlapping them slightly. Then draw around the bunny shape on to the tape.

Step 3
Step 3

Step three: Cut out the tape bunny, and press it onto the side of the jar.

Step four: Paint the jars with the Resene testpots, then remove the bunny-shaped tape. Fill with Easter eggs and tie a paper doily on top.
