Ready? Let’s make it!
But let’s talk about that sticker for a minute, y’all.
Why do they use glue that makes it so hard to remove? I know my little basket front will hide it, but I’m going to sand it and then paint over it.
It’ll be fine, just fine.
I’m using Debi’s Design Diary White Swan for all of my white painting on this project. Let’s start with the “metal wall vase”.
This next step was fun, y’all! I just “wove” my craft sticks together and put a bit of hot glue where they intersect. Be sure to decide which side will show because the glue might be seen on the back.
I measured the size of “basket” I needed by placing the metal vase on the craft sticks and drawing a circular line. Then I used my tin snips to cut the sticks into shape. It will sit on the top of the metal vase, rather than inside. I finished by painting it white.
The last picture shows how I decided to make a pointed / picket edge rather than a smooth one. You can decide which one you like better!
After painting it white, I dry brushed it with Waverly Antique Wax and then came back in with a white dry brush.
I used a napkin for the back, it was three-ply, so I separated it down to one-ply. I used my marker to measure the size I needed, then painted it with Mod Podge and placed the napkin inside. I love how it turned out, y’all!
I used E-6000 plus hot glue to attach the basket front to the metal vase.
The E-6000 has a stronger hold, but takes overnight to set up. The hot glue will set up almost immediately. Some small clamps or clothespins will hold everything together until the hot glue has dried.
For the bunny feet, I heated up the little toes to pop off from the feet. I painted the feet white, then used Mod Podge to adhere some scrapbook paper to the toes, then hot glued them back on to the feet.
Next, I hot glued the feet to the basket front.
I added a pom pom tail for the bunny. It’s just strips of fabric with a cardboard tool that I made. I have a tutorial on how to make the tool and pompom, just click here!
The bunny needs ears, right? Just use some pipe cleaners shaped like bunny ears and glue them down to burlap (or you can use fabric). Cut around the shape and repeat for the other side of the ear.
Then glue the ears to the top! I used hot glue on mine.
I hot glued several of the little Tumbling Tower game wood blocks to the base, then painted over them. This allowed the project to stand on its own.
I filled the “vase” with paper and hot glued moss on the top. I then added just a few florals and three little eggs. I cut the carrots down so they would fit.
Y’all. I am so happy how this turned out!
