I found mason jars my favorite color, purple. . . and used the mouth to make a circle and side stripe template on the burlap.
Easter Mason Jar Topper DIYMart 21, 2021
Mason jars are here to stay in the craft. How about Easter toppers for the simple and topless glasses you love to create? There are so many brightly colored mason jars and most of them have no lids. I found it easy to make decorative Easter essays that slide right over the opening or existing metal lids, using paper-backed burlap. I love this material! It is available from JoAnn in 24 “x 12” sheets and is already stiff so that the burlap no longer needs to be coated with Mod Podge or glue. A full tutorial can be found at http://plumperfectandme.blogspot.com/2015/03/easter-bunny-mason-jar-toppers-diy.html
Use tacky glue to wrap the strip around the circle on both edges. Add extra glue for stability and let it dry.
While the topper is drying, cut out pieces of bunny from the template provided and hand sew the right sides together so the openings can rotate inside out. Fill lightly with poly-fil.
Starting with the head, after filling it, sew on rocailles for the eyes, add a pom.pom for the nose and wire stems for the whiskers. Pipe cleaners were inserted into the ears and sewn on top. The paws were decorated with fabric for the sleeves and a thread that was tied around the end for the toes. The finished paws were hot glued to the topper and then the head was glued in between. Finally, handcrafted floral decorations were added to the burlap hanger.
Just think of all the ways you can decorate these burlap mason jar toppers.
