True confession time. My craft room is full of supplies I bought for some reason or another and never wound up using for their intended purpose.
All this craft supply hoarding makes me a great resource for neighbors who find themselves suddenly in need of baker’s twine or green spray paint or popsicle sticks at 10 o’clock at night. Because chances are, I have what you need. In duplicate. Or triplicate.
That’s why I love projects like these candy-filled bunny Easter party favors. I dug around in my stash, pulled out some wooden ice cream spoons, round tins, googly eyes and ribbon scraps, and turned them into cuteness.
You can fill them with candy and add them to your kids’ Easter baskets or hand them out as Easter party favors.

- Round favor tins with clear lids
- Googly eyes
- Wooden paddle spoons
- Pink card stock
- White craft paint
- Pink craft paint
- Glue dots
- Hot glue
- Black Sharpie marker
Paint wooden paddle spoons with two coats of white craft paint, allowing to dry between coats.
Then, paint on pink inner ears. One coat should be enough.
While the paint is drying, cut small bunny noses from card stock. Use glue dots to attach eyes and noses to the clear top of the favor tins.
Draw on each bunny’s mouth with Sharpie or permanent marker. Wipe off any fingerprints on the tin after you’re done.
Use hot glue to attach the bunny ears to the back of the favor tins.
Tie a small bow from ribbon and hot glue to the bottom of the favor tin. I used some short ribbon scraps for this.
Fill the tins with candy and replace the top.
He’s quite the dapper dude.
You can fill the Easter party favors with any kind of white candy you like. Because of the small size of the tins, I recommend using a smaller candy, like white M&M’s, Tic Tacs, mints. Mini marshmallows and white chocolate chips also work well.
