IMG_7564-bunnyweb_2048x

Spring is in the air and Easter is right around the corner! Now is the perfect time to make seasonal decor that is suited for both the holiday and season. We combined a white fluffy bunny with a garden pot for the perfect Easter or spring decor.

Things you need:

  • Pink foam

  • White foam

  • Scissors

  • X-acto knife

  • Medium Duty Hot Melt Glue Gun – High Temperature

  • General Purpose Clear Sticks

  • Large white pom

  • Medium white pom

  • Small flowers

  • Mini flower pot

  • Hemp cord

  • Cutting surface

  • Non-Stick Glue Pad – 19″ x 19″

Take your x-acto knife and cut out two ovals about an inch long from the white foam. These will be your bunny’s feet. To complete the bunny feet cut out six very small circles for the toe pads and two larger circles for the heel pads. Check the size on the white ovals you have already cut out to ensure they are proportioned and will fit on the white ovals.

Take your high temp glue gun and place four glue dots where the pink pads need to be on your feet. You should have one large one towards the bottom and three of the small ones towards the top.

Next, place some hot melt glue around  one third of your flower pot. Place the large white pom on your glue and allow to cool.

Once cooled, place a dot of hot glue on the front of your large white pom and place your medium pom there. This is your bunny’s puffy tail.

On the front of your white pom, under your medium pom glue your foam bunny feet on either side of your bunny tail.

You should start to visualize a bunny head first into a flower pot. Now grab the small flowers. Apply hot glue to the base of the small flowers and place on the back of the inside of the flower pot.

Lastly, cut a piece of small diameter hemp string and tie around the front of the flower pot with a bow. Place a small dot of general purpose hot melt glue near the knot of the bow and adhere it to the front of the pot. This will not only help keep your bow tied, but also help keep your string up. If your string seems to be sagging some, just place a dot of glue on the back and adhere the back of the string to your pot.

Lastly, apply hot glue to the base of the small flowers and place on the back of the inside of the flower pot.

This decorative piece is perfect for spring and you’ll be excited to bring it out year after year!
