Hello, and Happy Easter!!
I hope you are having a special day with family and friends, and that the Easter Bunny was good to you. 🙂
The internet is filled with loads of treat jar ideas. And for good reason – they are so. darn. cute! As such, I decided to create my own spin on treat jars, using these very vintage, made in Japan, pom pom chicks. I just love these, and I can’t help but smile when I look at them. They are so flamboyant and their black, beady eyes always go a bit askew, which adds to the charm.
Parading these vintage gems on the tops of jars is a great way to share them, and making these is so simple. To begin, I filled each jar with mini, vintage shiny brite ornaments in colors that were complementary to the chick colors, in lieu of candy. Foiled Hershey kisses, however, would be a great choice, especially in the pastel colors. I then re-applied the lid and taped the wire feet of the chicks to the top of the jar lid. Then, I raided my stash of vintage, waxy Easter grass, and tucked it around the base of the chicks.
The Easter grass tucks in nicely, and really stays in place. To keep the attention on these fancy, colorful chicks, I added a similarly colored ribbon to hold the name tags of the treat recipient, and also used similarly colored paper for the tags. A monochromatic color scheme is subtle and is a great way to add texture to a project.
Treat jars are great as just a favor, or can multi-function as place cards too. So many fun ideas with a little jar. 🙂
Enjoy your day!
