This insanely adorable bunny in a pot craft is so fun and quick to make, you could literally have a whole warren of adorable bunnies digging in pots in just a few mintues! LOL!
Bunny in a Pot Craft
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we just need juuuust the right little thing to make our farmhouse decor really pop–especially for the holidays. I mean, when this idea for these cute little bunnies in a pot from Southern in Law popped-up in my Pinterest, well, I just knew what I’d be making. But, I didn’t have the right kind of faux greenery on hand and I didn’t want to run to the store for candy eggs, so I gave my clay pot bunny my own little twist.
Of course, I had to turn my bunny in a pot craft into a little Rae Dunn inspired easter craft. And, since I was breaking out the Cricut to cut the lettering, I figured I might as well turn the whole thing into a Cricut project for easter. So, if you’re ready to make a quick and fun easter craft, let’s get started.

Tips to Make a Clay Pot Bunny
- First, click here to grab the free cut files for these adorable clay pot bunny craft.
- Let your clay pots dry completely before you try to put the heat transfer vinyl onto them–I know this is going to sound crazy, but if the paint isn’t completely dried, I noticed that it makes the paint kind of yellow where the EasyPress makes with the heat.
- If you’re like me, you love HTV, but you have a little problem: you can’t remember to mirror that image. So, take it from me and all my wasted vinyl. Please please mirror that “HOP” before you hit the “Cut” button.
- The cuts for the toes are teeeeeny tiny. So, be really careful with your hot glue. I even set to using tweezers at one point to make sure that I wasn’t burning my fingers.
- I had a very limited selection of pom poms. And I was kind of frustrated at one point because I lost the ONLY little tiny white pom pom I had to make the tail on my little white bunny in a pot craft. Frustration was boiling over and then the kiddo had a great idea: trim one of the bigger pom poms down to make a tiny one. And it worked!
How Do I Make this Bunny in a Pot Craft?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial.
- Three Tiny Terracotta Pots
- 3 Medium-Sized Pom Poms (brown, grey and white)
- 3 Tiny-Sized Pom Poms ( brown, grey and white)
- Craft Felt to Match Pom Poms and Pink for Toes
- Black Heat Transfer Vinyl
- White Acrylic Craft Paint
- Cricut Cutting Machine
- Cricut EasyPress Mini
- Hot Glue Gun & Glue
- Paint the terra cotta pots and allow them to dry completely.
- Upload the cut file to Cricut Design Space and size the “HOP” text and bunny foot fit your terra cotta pots (I used a 1-inch height on “HOP” text and ½-inch height on the foot). Be sure to attach the lettering so you don’t have to deal with all the separate letters.
- Copy the “HOP” text twice to make 3 “HOP”s. Also, copy the bunny foot 5 times to make 6 bunny feet. To cut the different color felt to match the different colored pom poms, adjust the colors of the feet pairs in Design Space to match.
- Go through the steps in Cricut Design Space to “Make It”.
- Load and cut your material to cut the felt feet and toes, as well as the “HOP” text. Be sure to mirror the text, since we’re using HTV.
- Weed each of the designs.
- Use an iron or your EasyPress Mini to apply the “HOP” onto to the front of each terra cotta pot.
- Put together each of the the bunny feet by hot gluing the toes and foot pad to each foot.
- With the hot glue gun, glue a larger pom pom in the top of a terra cotta pot.
- Affix a tiny pom pom with glue on top of the larger pom pom for a tail.
- Hot glue the bunny feet onto the side of the large pom pom below the tails and enjoy!
