Dollar Tree Easter Craft

I just love this darling dollar tree easter craft, it's super easy and inexpensive!

Dollar Tree Easter Craft

Did you know today's the first day of Spring? Woohooooo!!! 

(Yes, that's coming after a long, cold winter up here in Ohio . . . I can't wait to get out and start planting around here!)


In the meantime though I am so excited to get ready for Easter, and found this super cute easy Dollar Tree craft that's just a fun little happy for your Easter table. You could give these away as teacher gifts or treat your kids to them as a little surprise – nothing fancy but just a little fun.

This cute Easter Craft from the Dollar Tree is great for gifting.

What You'll Need at Dollar Tree

  • Mason Jars – $1 at Dollar Tree (may be able to find those less if you purchase them in a larger box at Walmart)
  • Small ceramic or even plastic Easter shapes – $1 at Dollar Tree (I was looking for something smaller but the ceramic ornaments were all I could find – my kids have already used the extra paint to paint a few pictures, so the paint didn't go to waste!)
  • spray paint
  • glue gun
  • candy to fill jars with


The supplies for this Dollar Tree Easter Craft are easy to gather.

How To Make This Dollar Tree Easter Craft

Here's how to make these in less than 20 minutes . . . 

  • Hot glue the mason jar inner lid to the ring to hold it in place

  • Hot glue Easter shape onto mason jar (I had to remove the hooks from the ornaments using needle nosed pliers, however if you can find a plastic Easter shape you can skip that step)
  • Spray paint the lid and let dry
  • Fill jar with candy ~ that's it!
Note – mine were all a little crooked because my seven-year-old Reagan was absolutely determined to help. Hopefully next time we'll get them on a wee bit straighter! 🙂

Here are a few other ideas to get you thinking . . .

  1. These were so cute I had to share with my Facebook followers. Proof you do NOT have to spend a fortune for stylish seasonal decor!

  2. What a fabulous idea!! Can’t wait to try!!

  3. hey, Just found this and I am in love, fun easy teacher gifts. On;y problem I seem to be having is keeping the bunnies on the jar, I used my extra hot glue gun, but it didn’t seem to do the trick. as soon as my son touched it, it fell off. Any suggestions?

    • Hmmm – mine worked with a hot glue gone (but I definitely layered it on, and don’t know that I would trust young kids with it as it may fall off?) I can’t think of any other ways to attach it besides hot glue 🙁

  4. I love the paint color! What color did you use?

  5. I just made one! It’s such a great idea! Thanks so much for sharing this great affordable gift idea. I’m going to fill it with small gifts and candy for my sons teachers!! How can I share a picture of my finished product? I need opinions?

  6. This is so cute! I can’t wait to try it this year!

    I love this! Could you share what color spray paint you used?

  8. I know this is a very old post, but for those having glue gun difficulties and the ornaments falling off, switch your glue stick! Skip the cheaper bags and go for the Gorilla Glue brand!
