Do you need a last-minute frugal Easter gift?  Do you need a quick and easy DIY Easter gift?  I’ve got the perfect easy frugal Easter treat for you.  You can make these adorable little gifts in minutes and for pennies each. I used craft supplies that I already had and recycled jars so the only cost that I had was the candy I used to fill the jars.

Grab a couple of recycled jars from your glass jar stash.  What?  You don’t have a glass jar stash?  You could pick some jars up at the dollar store or thrift store or ask a friend who has a glass jar stash of their own (ahem, like me).  You could use circle stickers or do what I did and use a circle punch and some leftover vinyl scraps to make your own circle stickers for free.

 Choose spring-y colors or use colors to go with your decor.

 Add a bunny sticker to the lid of the jar.  Embellish the jar with ribbon if you like.  And then the most important step – fill your jar with Easter candy.
