Take a hop into Spring with this Easter bunny table decoration – a whole pot of bunnies! Just add some eggs to this foam Easter craft, and personalize the front of the pot with a name or sentiment.
You will need:
2-1/2″ Smoothfoam ball
Two 2″ Smoothfoam balls
1-1/2″ Smoothfoam ball
1″ Smoothfoam ball (cut in half)
Floral foam (cut to fit in the pot)
Chalky paints: yellow, aqua, teal, pale yellow, pale pink, vintage white
Fine-point black marker
Wiggle eyes, powder blush
Ribbon or paper for bows
Low-melt hot glue gun
Paintbrush, scissors, wood skewers
Heart punch and cardstock (pastel shades)
Candy, mini fuzzy chicks
To paint, insert a skewer into each ball using it as a handle. Refer to the photo given and paint each ball the appropriate color. Paint the your pot teal if desired.
Die-cut or punch two hearts from each color of cardstock. Glue them together for rigid bunny ears. Cut each heart in half and round off the top edge. Bend up the point of each ear about 1/4″.
Paint a pink nose on each bunny head (ball), blush the cheeks and the inside of the ears. Glue on a pair of wiggle eyes to each and add face details with the black marker.
Glue a pair of ears to the each bunny head with the folded point facing to the back. Glue an embellished bow in front of the ears.
Glue the piece of floral foam into the pot. Cut the ends off of the skewers, staggering the lengths. Poke each skewer into the pot, spacing the bunnies as shown. Stuff the paper shred around the bunnies and push down into the pot. Glue a chick or two into the shreds and add some candy.
