I have a confession to make.
I love a pretty cookie jar, and I particularly love a pretty cookie jar for a seasonal vignette.
Like this adorable Easter egg cookie jar.
Look! The little pink bird is wanting a cookie too!
Please excuse the photo as it was getting dark when I took these photos.
Having said that, the Easter egg shape of this cookie jar is so pretty, as it is tied up with a pinkish-lavender ribbon.
Of course it goes without saying that if the cookie jar is filled with cookies…that is an even better “good thing”. LOL
I sat the cookie jar on the shelf of my hutch and placed the cutest little DIY basket beside it.
I saw something similar at one of the craft stores years ago.
The Easter Basket is made of cut out pieces of felt and the pieces are literally glued together to make a basket, handle and all.
The basket “frame” is felt, cut with little “points”…there is a lighter green ‘inner’ basket and a darker green outer basket and that is what gives it the strength it needs.
You just decide the size you want your basket to be and cut out 4 sides, a bottom and a handle.
Also cut out butterflies or flowers for the decorative trim as well as a little picket fence for the bottom of the basket.
You can use a marker to put a design on the butterflies if desired.
The little butterflies are cut out and glued to the top of the basket…and a yellow “fence” is glued to the bottom of the basket.
A felt handle is glued to the insides of the rectangle basket.
I placed 3 colors of Easter grass in the basket along with styrofoam painted eggs glued to a small dowel and a pretty little matching ribbon glued to the dowel.
I have had this for years and it has held up well considering there is no hard “framework” holding it together.
But for me the star of this vignette is the cookie jar.
I collect figural cookie jars and I love them filled with cookies or brownies or any kind of treat.
I have a Pillsbury Dough Boy cookie jar that I am particularly fond of, but I love them all.
I remember both of my grandmothers having cookie jars and yesterday, I talked about Depression Glass…one of my grandmothers had a Depression Glass Cookie jar that she kept filled with the best sugar cookies I have ever tasted. You can see that recipe and post here, Grandma Alices Plain Cookies .
And in answer to your unasked question, ‘do I keep cookies in my cookie jars?’
The answer is yes!
Anytime I have a vignette set up…you can be assured there is some sort of treats in the cookie jars.
Do you like cookie jars?
And do you fill them with cookies?
Hugs and Have a great Good Friday!
