I started with this store bought bunny in a jar. It's pretty big so I had a large canvas to work with. I started by deconstructing the bunny by removing it from the jar.
Got my Kisses for the foil.
Taking one or 2 for the team and eating these caramel Kisses.
I took off the weird stringy grass too along with removing the flowers and eggs.
I decided to paint the jar lid with DecoArt chalky finish paint. Three thin coats should do it.
Still opening Kisses for the foil... wink, wink!
I put some Modge Podge on the colored foil side. I have Glue n' Seal but I'm hoarding it.
I wrapped the whole bunny.
I used the largest movers and shapers oval and attached with some tape onto the jar to create a peek window.
To start the crackle process on the jar I coated the jar with modge podge leaving the oval in place.
Once dried remove the oval and adhere distress crackle paint on the "glued" portion of the jar.
I cut the mini bow from the mini bunny and used some spun sugar mini distress ink to add color.
Coat with glossy accents.
Sprinkle with distress glitter spun sugar set aside to dry.
It's spring and I found an assortment of grass at the $1 Store. Attach with hot glue.
Some alcohol ink and a brush to add some color.
Adding some color to the basket helps it pop.
Once the distress glitter is dry I added some abandoned coral to the edges. What a lovely vintage look.
Flowers are needed so I made a couple tattered pinecone rosettes.
Add a little color to the tips and they come to life. Abandoned Coral and Cracked Pistachio have that effect.
Time for a little flack and bling with mirrored stars and alcohol ink.
Perfect mini flag. Remember, there's very little space.
Once the crackle is dried and cracked you can add the bunny.
I love the variations in crack.
The finished result...Bunny in a Jar.
By leaving a crack free space you can get a clear view of all the changes.
Bursts of colour with the basket, flowers and wee signage.
Very Vintage from the back.
I added some tinsel twine to the lid. Along with the DecoArt chalky finish lid, foiled bunny and crackled glass it really becomes a vintage piece.
The oval shape inserted is a great window to this magical scene.
The before and after.
Be sure to check out Tim's original post for these faux chocolate bunnies! Too fun!
