Mason Jar Easter Crafts!

Easter is just around the corner, hopping it’s way to us very soon. In celebration of the upcoming holiday, I’ve found some wonderful ways that you can incorporate mason jars into your Easter decorating. Mason jars can be used for everything from vases and candle holders to actual Easter baskets, and I love using them for my decorating, as you all know.

Many of these DIY Easter craft ideas involve candy – we love candy, though don’t we? They’re great for giving as gifts to teachers or family members, or adding to the Easter baskets that you are making yourself. I pretty much love anything that involves candy, especially chocolate and there are many craft ideas in this collection that use chocolate candies and many that you make yourself. There are even cookies in a jar and cupcakes that you bake right there in your mason jar.

From Easter trees and succulent planters to scrumptious mason jar baked cupcakes and loads of ways to store and display candy, this collection is the ultimate in mason jar Easter craft ideas. You know how much I love using mason jars for everything. They’re so very versatile and can be reused over and over again. If you’ve been wondering about how you can repurpose mason jars for Easter decorating – wonder no more. I’ve found the most amazing collection of DIY mason jar Easter crafts and I’m sure you’re going to love them all!So here we go:

Easter Tree Planter


You can use a mason jar to house your Easter tree! Take a mason jar and “plant” a small branch or twig – you can paint it white or leave it natural – and then decorate.  Add some burlap or twine to the top of the jar for added decoration and you can use plastic eggs to hold your “tree” in place inside the jar. You can also do this with any vase you already have also.

Bunny Jar Toppers


You can purchase these little bunnies at a dollar store. Paint the top of the lid in a pastel color, and glue the bunnies on top of the mason lid. You can put whatever you want inside the jar.

DIY Easter Mantel Decoration


It’s a mason jar that is literally filled with Easter colors. Burlap gives it that great farmhouse country look and the pastel eggs are beautiful on top of a battery operated candle. This entire project just screams springtime, doesn’t it? I love the colors and how easy this is to put together. You can have it finished in about half an hour.

Bunny Bait Jars


Isn’t this just adorable!!! I love this one!They also make wonderful gifts. Just fill the jars with robin eggs, jelly beans, or other Easter type candy and cover with a cupcake liner. You can tie the cupcake liner on with ribbon or twine for extra decoration. They make a wonderful centerpiece for the dinner table or a great display for the mantel. Put them together in a wooden crate and add some moss for a really nice display.

Speckled Egg Painted Jars


I just love the speckled eggs at Easter. They have such a wonderful rustic country feel to them and would be perfect with your farmhouse décor. These are done with chalk paint which gives them that great vintage look. Once you’ve done the initial painting, you can create the speckled egg look with some brown paint and a toothbrush. It’s really easy and these would make wonderful vases when they’re finished.

Easter Chick


These are perfect for gift giving or you could even add them to your kids’ Easter baskets. You need a yellow cupcake liner to make the wings, a black market for the face and a couple of orange paper flowers and some scrap paper for other features. Then just fill him with starbursts, skittles or yellow jelly beans.

Easter Muddy Buddy Mix


Need another great treat idea for Easter that you can store in mason jars? This muddy buddy mix is amazing and looks so colorful when you store it in clear jars. To make the mix, you need candy melts in different pastel colors, as well as powdered sugar and Rice Chex cereals. When finished, these are not only delicious but also very colorful and look great inside those mason jars.

Spray Painted Mason Jar Planters


Spray paint is the best way to cover just about anything, even your mason jars. If you’re looking for a way to use up a few of those jars, these spray painted planters are perfect. Not only is it easy to color those jars with spray paint, you get wonderful planters for all of your indoor Easter plants and flowers. Be creative and add some bunny designs to the front or just make your planters different pastel colors.

Bird’s Nest Cupcakes


All you wonderful bakers out there will enjoy this! They contain white cake, lemon curd, apricot and pineapple preserves and a delicious cream cheese topping with toasted coconut. They’re perfect for Easter Dinner desserts or anytime you want something light and yummy. They’re also the perfect way to use up some of those mason jars you’ve got on hand – the smaller jelly sized jars, that is.

Easy Mason Jar Spring Centerpiece


Just take some paper doilies and twine to dress up those mason jars and then just add some bright and colorful daffodils or tulips and you have the perfect spring centerpiece. These are so very easy and you could use jars in whatever size you have available. I love the idea of using the larger jars for these. Just wrap the twine around the doily to keep it in place and you’re all done.

Easter Bunny Jar Treat


I love just love this bunny jar idea as a gift for a favorite teacher. You just take a mason jar, fill with mini marshmallows or whatever Easter candy you want, add some rabbit ears and you have the perfect treat gift. You can find bunny ears headbands at most dollar stores right now for $1 each. Just cut away the headband part and you’ve got the ears which you can glue onto the jar lid. Tie up with some pretty ribbon or tulle and you’re all set.

Bunny Munch Jars


Aren’t these little bunnies adorable!  The bunny munch is made of white chocolate popcorn or kettle corn and mini marshmallows. Once you have your munch ready, decorate your jars with this cute bunny printable and add some ribbon or other decorations. These would make wonderful gifts for teachers, hostesses, or anyone that you need a little treat for.

Carrot Mason Jar Centerpiece


Isn’t this just beautiful!!! Just fill about six different mason jars with carrots and add some lovely spring flowers like daffodils and tulips. Then put them all in a wire crate. What a gorgeous display for your Easter dinner table! I love the simplicity of this and how just a few steps and a few minutes give you the perfect spring decoration.

Spring Mason Jar Vase


I made this one out of a wine bottle…you can decorate a mason jar the same way. Put 3 or them together filled with flowers. The dollar store has spring napkins for $1. It only takes a half of a napkin at most to decorate the outside of the jar.


Easter Bunny Jar Cupcakes


For these cute cupcakes, you will need to purchase the smaller mason jars.. You just bake your cupcakes in the jars – this is a great way to keep them moist – and then when they’re cool, decorate with homemade or store bought icing. Add sprinkles and even a tiny little chocolate bunny to the top for decoration. What a perfect Easter dessert especially for children.

Easter Bunny Granola


Aren’t these adorable! This yummy granola can be made quickly and when you store it in this bunny mason jar, it’s the perfect companion for Easter breakfast. To decorate the jar, you’ll need googly eyes, a pink pompom for the nose, something for the whiskers and a few other supplies. The granola has oats, chocolate chips, and bunny shaped marshmallows, among other ingredients. This is a great way to get kids to enjoy a snack that’s healthier than chips or plain candy.

Easter M&M Cookie Jar Mix


Have you ever made cookies in a jar? I just love the idea of giving these out to your friends, and teachers. You normally see them around Christmas, but look how cute these are. It’s cookies in a jar with an Easter twist. Fill the mason jar with your cookie mix and then add pastel colored M&Ms to the top and tie up the lid with a colorful ribbon or some twine.

    1. Ohh, I love those too Alicia! Creative minds…Where are you?? I’m in So Ca, lots of sun. A few days ago we had a cloudy day, what a wonderful change! It has rained here only a day or two this year…I love the rain! But I love the snow too, as long as I don’t have to shovel and salt every morning. I stayed with some friend in Lake Tahoe. It is beautiful there, turquoise lake…beautiful! I had so much fun, except, shoveling the snow. I don’t know how people do that everyday for months!

      1. I wouldn’t mind spending winter time in So Ca 😀 I’m from Mexico but live in Finland and I loooove snow but that also means I get short days and not enough sun. I love rain too! and the smell of wet soil 😀 oooh I have seen so many beautiful pictures of Lake Tahoe, I bet it is even more gorgeous in real life 😀 yep, snow shoveling is no joke, hahaha!

      2. Just yesterday when I woke, the air outside had the wonderful scent of rain, but no rain. It was really awesome. I have a friend that is from Finland. Her family is still there, but she moved out here. Finland is beautiful, but too cold for my bones…hahaa
        We get lots of snowbirds here vacationing during the winter. Best of both worlds!

  2. I need help, Linda!!! So, I have been trying to declutter as the hubs and I plan of the RV life in the near future… I bought a fake small green pine tree, it is pre-lit, and I have been trying to use that as a decorative centerpiece for each ‘season’. BUT I flocked it…not smart. Any ideas how to change the decor? I’m allowed one holiday tote when we travel… I have x-mas ornaments, easter egg ornaments, need to get valentine heart ornaments… How to compress the decorating items into one tote? Frugal decorating. Help! ~Kim

      1. For valentines, you can get a piece of cardboard, cut out a heart shape, then use that as a stencil. Use some pretty reds and whites and pink materials/or felt, and with the stencil cut out hearts. 2 for each heart. Sew 2 pieces of hearts, inside out together leaving a opening. Then turn inside out, fill with stuffing, then sew closed the opening. This will look so cute for Valentines. You could also use pastel colored material/felt. Then, write on the front those cute little phrases…’Be Mine’, ect with a marker. You can also use the same technique and cut out bunnies, chicks, flowers, bees, birds, etc. If your not good at drawing, you could always find a pic online, and trace with thin paper. Then transfer that onto some thin cardboard, and do the same steps as the Valentine Hearts.
        Be careful when you paint your tree over to not use a dark green, you may not like the results.

      2. Yes you can use a glue gun. You could also use a fabric glue . Just use a thin layer of glue close to the edge. If using a glue gun, be careful when putting right side out. If you want, I can send you some pics of little hearts I made and stuffed.

      3. Well… how many months of snow do we have left in the midwest… It’s been a tough winter! I know that we will move to a warmer region, for my health. I plan on one more midwest winter then happy trails. How have you been feeling?


      4. I really understand why you want to move out of the cold…brr.. your health will be so much better in warmer climate.I am doing well, have had a little backlash from the surgeries, but starting to feel like my ‘old self ‘ again. Helping a friend redecorate her place. It’s so much fun!

  3. These are great. I am going to try and do an Easter tree this year for my table. I will definitely use a mason jar now. My husband has so many in his office closet. I also love the cupcakes in the jars…super adorable. Thanks for sharing.


    1. Those Easter Trees are adorable! You can purchase the small little eggs with ribbons attached at a craft store! Wow! You are so lucky to have a husband who saves mason jars! Thank you for looking, and please be sure to send me a pic or link of your tree when finished!
