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!

Easter Fun

I know that Easter has passed but I wanted to share with you all the fun things that my girls and I did over last week.  First up is our window.  We have a large picture window, which I LOVE and have so much fun decorating! The girls and I used cardstock paper for the grass and last years Easter Peeps, bucket and plastic eggs for decoration.  My older two girls made the cut outs and I used my baby’s birthday banner that I saved from her third birthday. (Sorry for the glare, since my camera is not working to well, my hubby was nice enough to take these pics with his cell phone.  But the sun was very bright that day! Hence the glare 😀 )

In all the commotion of getting the house ready for our Easter Dinner.  I completely forgot that my girls were to bring in gifts for their classmates for Easter the next day.  So we quickly baked up some cupcakes and I had some candy grass, robin’s eggs and candy bunnies I was saving for Easter Dinner and made the 1st Graders some bunny patches with eggs!

It’s was pretty cool.  My Nena decorated the cupcakes all on her own.  How proud she was of her work!  I was too.  My eldest girl made a batch of rainbow topped cupcakes with Colored sugar.  They were both very creative and festive and the cupcakes matched their personality!  By the end of the night we all smelled of cupcakes and icing! 🙂

For Sunday’s dinner we had gotten some paper products and utensils from Wal-Mart as well as Party City.  My hubby and the girls out did themselves with a lovely table setting. I was busy cooking dinner and cleaning tidying the house up for company.  We had 22 people at our home!  We had a blast, it was so much fun and I cannot wait to do it again! ~
