I wanted to share how I used some recycled jars to turn them in to spring decor – bunnies and chicks! It’s easy and great fun for the kids too!
For my first two, I painted 2 recycle jars. I used paint I had on hand.
I painted a chick face on one using Sharpies. I think I might get some yellow feathers and add them to the top.
For the bunny, I hot glued 2 pipe cleaners onto the top inside of the jar for ears, and glued on a pink pom pom for his nose. I used a Sharpie to draw on his face.
I glued a pom pom on his back for a tail.
For my next jar, I frosted the glass.
I used my Sharpie to draw on a bunny face and ears.
I added a batter operated LED light to him to light him up. You could also use it as a vase for flowers.
For this one I used a plastic orange juice container. I frosted the container.
I drew on the bunny face with my Sharpies.
This one I will put water in the bottom of the jar to hold it steady. I added a solar light to the top so it’ll light up outside.

So adorable! What a great way to dress up bottles that you’d normally recycle to add fun to your home. 🙂
Thank you Linda! I was thinking those grand kids of yours might have some fun with this too 🙂

This would be perfect for an elementary school classroom project. So cute and a fun way to put those recyclables to work. Thanks for sharing at the Virtual Fridge. Pinned.
Thank you and you are right. I ran classroom parties for about 10 years for both kids. Thanks for the Pin
What a cute idea! That would be a great way to keep kids busy on these Spring (?) days! 😉 The whole house would be covered in bunnies! LOL Happy WW!
That is an awesome visual Shannon! So very true 🙂
