So check out my video and if you haven’t done so yet make sure to subscribe!

Dollar Tree DIY | Adorable Easter Bunny Pots | Hip ‘n Creative

Hey guys I hope you’re all feeling fabulous today!  So Today I have this adorable DIY Easter Bunny Pot Tutorial for you.  It is another super simple project but this time the project can be time consuming (because of the drying time for the paint)  I think it’s adorable and if you have any school aged kids, they may love making this project with you!

What you will need:

  • Terra Cotta Pots (Dollar Tree)
  • Plastic Spoons (Dollar Tree)
  • Sanding sponge (Dollar Tree)
  • Paint Brushes (Dollar Tree)
  • Pipe Cleaners (Dollar Tree) *optional
  • Easter Grass (Dollar Tree) or anywhere 😉
  • Floral Foam (Dollar Tree)
  • Paint (Wal-Mart)
  • Ribbon (Dollar Tree)
  • newspaper or something to protect your surface
  • Sharpies

DIRECTIONS:

First thing I did was sand down the spoons to remove the shine.  This will help the paint to adhere to the spoons easier.

Next painted the pots white.  You may need to paint 2 – 3 coats (allow drying time in between).  Next I painted the pot’s rim (again giving it 2 -3 coats).  I also painted some polka dots on the side of the pots.  I also painted the spoons to coordinate with the pots.

Once everything is dry you can draw the faces on the spoons.  I drew dots for eyes and triangles for beak or  bunny nose.  The whiskers are “V” shapes 😉  I decided to make some bunny ears out of pipe cleaners, I cut out the pipe cleaners and shaped them into ears.  Next I hot glued them to the back of the spoons.  I also hot glued some decorative ribbon to the “neck” of the spoons.

Lastly I assembled my pots.  I cut down the floral foam to fit the narrowest part of the pot, then I inserted the foam, my spoons and easter grass.  I also wrote my daughter’s names on a scrap piece of scrapbook paper and taped it onto a toothpick.  and that’s it!

Now as usual, I did make a video for you.  I would love it if you subscribed to my channel, it would truly mean the world to me.  Also sharing is caring, so if you know of someone that would find this tutorial inspiring please share it with them.  Thank you so much and I’ll see you soon!

How to REUPHOLSTER A CHAIR AND BACK CHAIR | hip ‘n creative

It has been one crazy month of getting things knocked off my list!  And I cannot believe that I finally am at a point in my life where I can get back to working on some home renovations!  I have a huge punch list of things we need to get done and I am so super stoked to be getting things underway!

On my previous post you’ll see that we made some really awesome Floating Shelves (come check them out if you haven’t done so)  I absolutely love them and have already decorated them for the Holidays.  I am in the process of making some inexpensive Decor DIYS that I’ll share with you soon but I did want to share with you my reupholstered dining room chairs!  These babies needed a makeover, badly.  I’ve had my dining room for about 12 years and it has been loved, and loved hard.  Although I did not take any before pictures (too embarrassed to share – just imagine 12 years of juice and food spills, and strange stains that appear out of nowhere) I have a pretty awesome video on my youtube channel that may inspire you to reupholster your chairs too!

Full disclosure:  I am not a professional reupholsterer so please if you decide to recreate this project do so with caution!  Some tools we used for this project is dangerous and you can hurt yourself!  With that being said come check out my video where I share a step by step instruction on how we brought life back to our chairs!

And don’t forget, if you decide to recreate this project, please share your work on instagram and tag me @hipncreative! I would love to see your work!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I’ll see you again soon!
