Yes, I jumped on the macaron bandwagon and I’m not sorry. They come in perfect Easter egg colors so it seamed like just the right time to jump on board. The results are pretty darn cute. I mean, how darling are these Easter bunny favors? They make me smile and thanks to Oriental Trading, they are super easy to create.
In order to make these, you’ll have to order the Bunny Favor Container via Oriental Trading. They are super affordable (right now on sale for under $2.50 for 12) and they are the perfect size for a macaron. How lucky, right?! Then all I did was embellish them with my free print-it-yourself Easter Flags Printable and faux flowers.
- Bunny Favor Container from Oriental Trading
- 1 faux flower per container (use flowers about 1″ diameter or smaller)
- 3 faux leaves (2 small and 1 medium) per container (I used faux lambs ear)
- Free Print-It-Yourself Easter Flags
- Double-sided tape
- Hot glue & Hot glue gun
- Macarons (Or fill with your favorite cookie or candy)
See below for detailed pictures of the different steps.
Attach Easter flag. First you’ll need to download and print my free print-it-yourself Easter Flags Printable. The flags were created to add to straws so you’ll only want to use half of a flag per bunny. Be sure to cut in “half” close to where the writing stops on the other side so you have extra room for your flowers to overlap your flag. You’ll then use double-sided tape to attach your flag to your bunny. Make sure that you only tape to the round, front circle of your Bunny Container (and not to the ears) so that you can still open your container.
Attach leaves. I used faux Lambs Ear for the leaves. Use two small leaves and one medium leaf. I was able to make 4 containers per lambs ear stem because most of the leaves are large. Attach using your hot glue gun. Again, remember to only glue to the front circle piece and not on the ears so that you can still open your container.
Attach flower. I then glued on one flower to each bunny.
Remove “tail” from front and add to back. You’ll notice that the bunny container comes with a white ball attached to the front. These easily peel off and then I added them to the back using the hot glue gun.
Fill with your favorite treat. I used macarons, but you could use any Easter treat. Macarons are readily available right now thanks to them being a trend to have at weddings so just google to find a bakery with them in your area.
Present them at each place setting when setting your Easter table or put them in an Easter basket, however you use them I’m sure they will make your guests smile.
Don’t have time for making favors, just buy some delicious macarons and pile them up on your favorite serving dish. They are like little Easter eggs in cookie form.
I hope you all have a wonderful Easter. I’ve been having so much fun creating this season.
