Bottoms Up Easter Bunny





Did you see yesterday’s post about the Michaels & Hometalk Pinterest event? I told you that I’d show you my project tutorial today, so here it is . . .


pinterest-event-shoppingI had fun shopping at my local Michaels store for my supplies. I was trying to figure out exactly how I wanted it all to come together.


What you’ll need for this project

  • Sponge brush(es)
  • 3” Styrofoam Balls
  • Grass
  • Paint—I used Americana Cool White, Americana Multi-surface Satin Flamingo, DecoArt Glamour Dust Celebration Pink
  • 3” pot (I used the taller one
  • 5” tray
  • Pom Poms I used 2” pom poms, but they were too large, I had to trim them.
  • Celebrate It Egg Ornaments—I used one pack of 8 large and one pack of 32 minis
  • 1 sheet each of white and pink foam


Not shown

  • Double stick tape (optional)
  • Hot Glue
  • Glue Stick
  • Scissors


    I painted everything white, then painted the rim of the pot and tray pink, then Glamour Dust.

2014-02-08 11.19.36Because I’m not very artistic, I used my Silhouette to cut some bunny paw prints out of some contact paper. Then I used my scissors to cut around the contact paper placing the paw on the white foam, and the little pads on the pink foam.  I secured the pink pads onto the paw using a glue stick.


glue-grass-styrofoamI used hot glue to attach  some of the green grass onto the Styrofoam ball.


upside-down-bunny-upside-down-pawsI got so busy having fun, that I didn’t take any pictures putting it all together, but it’s really quite simple. Do you notice something wrong with this poor, sad bunny?


give up?   His paws are upside down!  hahahah  off.they.come.

small-large-pawsSince I had to make more paws, I tested to see what size I should do, I decided to go with the original smaller paws.


paw-placementThis is where I used the double stick tape to hold the paws on to get the right placement.  If you have a better “eye” you can probably skip the taping process.


upside-down-bunnyI love him!  I seriously smile every time I look at him, and think about how he’s so determined to dig to the bottom of the pot to get his carrots!


bottoms-up-Easter-bunny-potDo you love him as much as I do?  Wouldn’t this look great with your Easter décor? It’s a great craft to do with the kiddos!

  1. Gail, I LOVE this cute little guy. He is so awesome., very creative. I am going to be hosting a small crafting class, with some wonderful ladies from a local church, and we have decided to give your little guy a try. I have one question for you about the assembly. How did you attached the grass bottom ball to the flower pot? Did you hot glue it?

    Thanks bunches, Happy crafting!
