I can’t believe that Resurrection Sunday, or Easter is just around the corner. My Mom was so right about time flying when you got older. Don’t tell her she was right though, I don’t want to get that “look” from her! ha/ha My family is one to celebrate Easter in the fact that it’s the remembrance of Jesus dying on the cross to save us from our sins. He gave His life as a ransom for many and we thank Him daily for that! I know today’s world focuses mostly on the bunny and candy being the only thing that this Holy-day is about, and we’re not like that. I give the Lord praise for all He did, and will never put the sole focus on the bunny portion of what the media always advertises.
That being said, when you know the truth, it’s still fun to bring some smiles to those that you love. Being able to share some candy with a friend and let them know that you care means a lot to me. I saw something like this on a “Delightfully Noted” blog post and thought it would be fun to make.
I sure hope that you like it!! I hope you have a blessed day, and please be sure to comment and share this craft on your social media channels – thanks so much!!

Instructions for the Bunny Tail Treat Cups:
I started by using a permanent black marker to create some “feet” on an upside down heart foam cutout.
Using the scissors, I cut the heart almost in half to separate the feet. Gently pull the heart open to give a bit of space between then.
Using my scissors to hold it, I hot glued the feet to the Styrofoam ball, as well as the pom-pom to make the tail. I let it sit for a bit to dry completely before continuing.
Next, I filled up the cups with some Easter candy that I found at the store. I made sure to leave a bit of room at the top to insert the grass and the “bunny.”
When I had all of the cups full, I added some of the artificial grass that I found at the store. I’m really glad that they are using a paper version now, instead of the old-school plastic type which always worried me. This new stuff turned out perfect for what I needed, and I only needed a couple of small bags to fill all of the cups.
When the grass was in each cup, I inserted a toothpick into the “bunny” to better hold it in place.
Now I inserted the “bunny” tails into the cups, making sure not to pierce any of the candy, but to just make sure the toothpick went between to keep our little bums secure. Now they were ready to give out to friends and family and enjoy the smiles! I hope you like it! Be sure and pin this, and try it for yourself!
I hope you like it! Please take a minute to leave me a comment. Let me know what you would do different, or what you would add, etc. Be sure to tweet, pin, share, etc. – thanks!!
