I needed a little Spring decor in my home and an Easter jar hanger seemed like the perfect fit for the season. It replaces some burlap squares that have adorned my foyer for years and were starting to fade from the sun. I made this Easter jar hanger with removable bunny ears so that I can use it year round. Such a simple project made with some of my go to upcycled craft supplies.

- 1×6 wood board cut to roughly 16 inches
- Glass jar
- Paint – blue and white
- Paint brushes
- Bakers twine
- Coat Hook
- Tools to attach hook and hang wood on wall
I painted the board a pastel blue. Then I used a glass jar from my collection, it pays to hang on to your old jars, and painted it with white chalk paint. This paint gives the jar a matte finish and adheres nicely to the glass. Just clean the glass with rubbing alcohol first.
Once the paint was dry I attached a small white coat hook to the board and a picture hanger to the back of the board. I wanted to hang the jar from a hook instead of permanently mounting it to the board. This way I can easily change out the flowers or whatever decorations I choose in the jar.
I wraped yellow and white bakers twine around the top of the jar leaving a loop that I can use as a hanger. I secured the back with a knot and a little hot glue just to keep it secure.
This is the basic jar hanger, I am excited to use this year round with faux or fresh flowers in my foyer. For Easter I thought it would be fun to add some felt bunny ears. I cut ears from sparkly white and soft pink felt and attached them to the wood using removable mounting squares. When Easter is over I can just pull them off without damaging the paint.
What a cute Easter jar hanger! I love how the little bunny ears peek out from the white flowers.
This Easter jar hanger really brightens up my foyer and fits perfectly on the narrow wall just inside my front door.
How are you decorating for Easter?
