Hey y’all! This craft was inspired by our friend Kathy Hillyard. She made hers so cute that I couldn’t wait to put a spin on my own! Here are all the details, plus the video!
Dollar Tree: “Hop” bunny signs, Long wood slat, eggs, Tumbling Tower Game blocks, gray moss
Debi’s Design Diary DIY Paint: White Swan
Lowes / Home Depot: Wood Shims. (I would rather have used paint sticks but I didn’t have any).
Michaels Grab Bag / Boxes: Carrots, greenery, bird nest
Goodwill Outlets: Green moss
Stash: Floral foam
Amazon: Xacto knife, sanding sponge. Click here to see some of my very favorite crafting and decorating supplies! (This is an Amazon affiliate link and I may receive a small compensation for items purchased from this link.)
Let’s make it!
I used my Xacto knife to cut around the bunny, then trimmed the edges with scissors.
Then I sanded it down just a bit, and painted it white.
The first picture shows the Dollar Tree long wood slat that will be the bottom, and the shims I will use for the sides.
I painted them white also, then used a Tumbling Tower Game block from Dollar Tree as a connection piece between the bunnies and the wood slat. I just attached them with hot glue because this will be an indoor decor piece.
I attached three wood shims to each side, with Finn overseeing the process. He made a really cute craft of his own that y’all can see in the video!
Be sure to paint the ends and edges of your wood shims if you use them!
I used a dowel and beads in pink and white. They coordinated well with the bunnies!
The dowel is a bit thin, but it needed to fit in the beads. We aren’t going to be carrying it around, so It’s ok.
I used floral foam in the bottom. I also put some of the bright green moss in from Goodwill, but it was really bright, so I added some Spanish moss over it.
TIP: A friend suggested using a slice of a pool noodle if you don’t have floral foam.
I just started adding greenery, some eggs and carrots to my basket.
I wanted a small bunny inside, so I used this one from Dollar Tree. I painted it white on both sides, then separated a two-ply gingham napkin to cover it with.
Some Mod Podge, a bit of sanding, and a little raffia bow, and this bunny is ready for spring!
Here are both sides of my basket. Y’all, I just love how this turned out!
