If you're new this week to Saturday Spark, hello & welcome! I'm so happy you decided to stop by for a bit. Five weeks ago I shared a little bit about the idea behind Saturday Spark and a little bit about me. My intent is for this to become a community of like-minded women sharing their ideas centered around home decor, DIY projects, household tips, and tricks, and entertaining. I took last week away from my blog for a little me time, but I'm back at it this week.

If you're here for round five I'm humbled you came back and for your continued support!

I also want to take a quick moment to thank those who reached out to me last week and shared kind words and prayers. There aren't enough words to say how much that means to me and our family.


This week I made a fun little Easter DIY with my four-year-old niece, inspired by Jess from rootsoutwest. She was so excited to show her daddy when he came to pick her up and even more excited to bring one home to her brother and her daddy {my brother} was super excited that she wanted to share the goodies inside 😆

I, unfortunately, didn't get pics of the entire process. Remembering to take pictures and keep a four-year-old engaged was a bit of a challenge, let's remember I have two teenagers, It's been a while for me {LOL}.

The good thing about this little DIY is it's simple and only requires five simple items.

Step 1:

Josephine placed the bunny figurines inside cardboard boxes and I spray painted them with the colors of choice. Josephine picked Magenta Satin Finish Rust-Oleum Painters Touch 2x Spray Paint and Rust-Oleum Metalic Gold Spray Paint.

Step 2:

Josephine helped me remove the lids from the 32 oz Ball Mason Jars {you can use any size mason jar, I just happened to have a case of 32oz jars leftover from a Christmas craft a couple of years back} and place them inside a box and I paint with the corresponding colors of the bunnies.

Step 3:

We allowed lids and bunnies to dry completely, turned them over, and sprayed them again. Allowing them to dry completely, again. {This is one of those steps I failed to get a pic of, but I'm sure you got the gist of it 😉}

Step 4:

I put a dab of hot glue on the bottom of the bunnies and attached them to the top of the mason jar lid and allowed it to dry. Once the hot glue cooled, I dusted off the lids, removed any excess hot glue, and sprayed them one last time.

Step 5:

All that's left is to choose your favorite candy and fill that Mason Jar up!

These make great Easter favors to give at your Easter celebration, as gifts for friends, co-workers, and neighbors tie a little gift tag around them to let the recipient know that Some"bunny" wishes them a Blessed Happy Easter!

Tip: You could also make these with different animal figurines for different themed parties and holidays.
