Valentine’s Day has past, so that means it is time to decorate for Easter. I love Easter décor – it is just so cute! My daughter loves Easter Bunny Peeps, so I just had to make this giant faux bunny Peep just for her. Learn how to create your own homemade Easter centerpiece below.
8″ Smoothfoam disc
6″ Smoothfoam disc
1″ x 6″ x 12″ Smoothfoam sheet
Four 2″ x 4″ x 4″ Smoothfoam blocks
Hot knife tool
Acrylic paint (any pastel color), brushes
Circle punch, black cardstock
Floral moss, ribbon, wood dowels
Paper flowers, decorative eggs
Toothpicks, pencil, craft glue
Container or planter box
1. Using the 6″ disc as a guide, cut away a portion of the 8″ disc so that the 6″ disc will fit snugly against it.
2. Draw bunny ear shapes on to the Smoothfoam sheet, cut out and smooth the edges a bit with the hot knife for a more rounded look.
3. Attach the pieces together with toothpicks. Paint the front and back and set aside to dry. Glue punched circles on the face for the eyes and nose. Tie a ribbon bow around the neck.
4. Insert dowels into the bottom of the bunny and press into Smoothfoam blocks inside your desired container. Add floral moss around the base of the bunny and embellish with eggs and flowers.
I have this wonderful rustic wooden box that I normally use for silverware, and it turns out that a 2 x 4 x 4 block fits perfectly into each section and is perfect for setting up this Easter bunny centerpiece.
