Preparation

1. Protect your work surface by laying down freezer paper, waxed paper or newspaper.
2. Turn your eggs into keepsake eggs by removing the yolk. This can be done following the process outlined here.

Instructions

1. Place the Dudley's blue coloring tablet in the coloring cup.
2. Add ½ cup warm water to the cup.
3. Add 3 Tablespoons of vinegar to the cup.
4. Stir the colors until the tablet is dissolved.
5. Using the egg dipper, dip the egg into the dye so that the egg is only halfway covered. Hold it there for a little while until the egg is a nice blue color on the bottom. Let the egg dry.

6. Cut out a circle from the vinyl adhesive paper or contact paper. This will be the viewing opening of the jar.

7. Stick the circle to the front of the inside of the jar.

8. Paint the inside of the jar. Let it dry – this may take a little while. When dry, remove the adhesive paper.

9. Glue rickrack along the circle on the outside of the jar.

10. Put some Easter grass inside the jar.

11. Cut a circle out of the fabric that will be large enough to cover the top and sides of the lid. Glue to the lid with a glue gun.

12. Using the ribbon, tie a bow and glue it to the jar where the ends of the rickrack meet, at the middle of the bottom. Also tie a ribbon to the side of the lid to decorate it.
13. Cut out a circle using the blue card stock and insert it into the jar to provide a "sky" background.

14. Cut out the felt and pieces to create the nose, ears, arms, cheeks, teeth and feet of the bunny. Refer to the photo image for the parts.

15. Use the Black paper or felt or craft foam to create the eyes.
16. Glue all of those pieces in place.
17. When all of the glue is dry, place the bunny in his new home!

Dudley's Helpful Hints

• Use the lid of the jar to trace the circle your contact or adhesive paper.
• When applying the rickrack, start at the middle of the bottom, so you can later cover that spot with a bow. The rickrack will help to decorate the front as well as camouflage where the painting line might be irregular.
• Use pinking shears in place of scissors when cutting your fabric to give it a nice edge.
• You could make multiple jars and have a chick, duck, or pink bunny character made using an egg.
