How to make an Adorable Easter Decoration: Critter Cups

How to prep the jars for painting with tape by Champagne and Sugarplums

For this design, I wanted to avoid painting the lip of the jar. To do the same, take the painter’s tape and cover the top of the jar where you don’t want any paint to be. Additionally, you may have to cut slits in the tape to get it to fold over the top and seal tightly.

Pour a big dollop of the yellow paint in one jar. Turn the jar around in your hands to spread the paint around. Tapping the jar against your palm helps to get the paint to move. Be patient, it may seem like the paint isn’t moving but it will. Keep turning and tapping the jar until all of the glass is covered in paint. When you’re happy with the coverage, turn the jar over onto a piece of paper towel and leave it to dry. Drying may take some time depending on how thick the paint is. Repeat the previous step with the second jar and the white paint.

How to add a felt beak to the yellow critter cups by Champagne and Sugarplums

Cut a small triangle out of the orange felt, which will be the ducks beak. Use hot glue to attach your beak to the centre of the yellow jar and then use the black gems as eyes and attach them with the hot glue on either side of the beak to complete the ducks face.

How to add whiskers to the white critter cups by Champagne and Sugarplums

On the white jar, use the black paint to make whiskers in the centre of the jar by painting an X and then add lines out the side to make three whiskers on each side. Add a pink pom pom nose with the hot glue and black gems for the bunny’s eyes.
