Hoppy Easter!

I saw something similar to these on Pinterest before Valentines Day. I just revamped it for Easter.  I used clean and sterlized 16 oz. water bottles.  When I sterlized the bottles, I just used very hot water, not boiling as my first attempt shrunk the plastic of the bottles!  Each bottles takes a little more than a 12.6 oz bag of M&Ms.  I used those little foam pieces you can find at any craft store for the ears.  Googly eyes and a poofy tail could be used too if so desired.  I made little tags with my niece and nephew's name and scrapped them up a little with a brand and paper flowers.  I picked out a a 7/8" springy ribbon to wrap around the bottle and a 1/8" contrasting ribbon to tie the name tags on.  Wa-la... done!


  1. Absolutely beautiful! I will make this for my daughter teachers. Thanks for the post.
