DIY Bunny in a Pot Easter Craft – Dollar Tree Easter Decor

Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, I have a “thing” for bunnies in my Spring decor. One year, we decorated one of the tiered tray displays in all bunny items and my daughter just loved this quick craft. This craft is so sweet, easy customized to your decor, and is fun to have on display.

You can have the trio done in just about 20 minutes, including paint drying time, so I would classify this as a great quick craft or one to fill a rainy afternoon. If you’re ready to make a fun bunny in a pot Easter craft this afternoon, let’s get started.

Tips to Make Easter Bunnies in Terra Cotta Pots

  • First, download the free Easter bunny ear cut file here. You can cut your own and do not have to use my drawing with a cutting machine. It’s just as easy to print the jpg and cut the shapes out with scissors.
  • To make this into an Easter centerpiece, choose a 4-6 inch foam egg from the craft store and a cute white porcelain pot. This size would make adorable home decor, too, tucked away on a bookcase or on an end table.
  • One of the things about this craft is that you make it multiple ways. I used 2-inch foam eggs and small pots from the Dollar Tree, because I wanted to put these on the top tier of a tray display. You can make the same craft using the largest eggs (I believe the largest I saw were 8-inches) and larger terra cotta pots. If you size up the ears and use a larger pom pom, this would make an absolutely adorable Easter porch decoration!
  • I used a little moss to add a touch of unifying color to my whole set of three. If you would rather, you could use some Easter basket filler grass to match the pot color or work with your theme. Other filler options are raffia, tiny Easter eggs, or greenery like boxwood or lamb’s ear.
  • This DIY Easter craft is budget friendly but be sure to check your stash before getting started. The ribbon we used had been in my craft room for years.

Active Time 20 minutes
Additional Time 5 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Difficulty Easy
Estimated Cost $3

Materials

  • 3 x 3-inch Terra Cotta Pots
  • 3 x 2-inch Foam Eggs
  • 1 Sheet White Card Stock Paper
  • 1/4 yard White Cotton Fabric
  • 1/4-inch Sheer Ribbon in Pink, Blue, and Purple
  • White Embroidery Thread
  • Moss
  • 3 1/2-inch White Pom Poms
  • Acrylic Craft Paint in Pink, Blue and Purple
  • Tissue Paper

Tools

  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue Gun and Glue
  • Paintbrush
  • Craft knife

Instructions

  1. Paint each of the terra cotta pots a different color (one pink, one blue and one purple). Allow the paint to dry completely.
  2. Cut three roughly 6-inch round circles of white cotton fabric. Wrap one circle of fabric around an egg, pulling the fabric tightly around the egg, bunching the loose ends together on the fatter end of the egg. Using the embroidery thread, tie the bunched fabric together on the end of the egg, adding a bit of hot glue to ensure the string remains secure. Trim the excess fabric.
  3. Tuck a 1/2 piece of tissue paper into the bottom of each pot, leaving about 1/2-inch of space from the top of the tissue paper to the top of the pot. Add a bit of hot glue to the top of each tissue paper bundle then place the bunched end of the cotton-covered foam egg on top, pressing it down into the tissue paper.
  4. Download the bunny ear cut file set and cut it out using a cutting machine or with scissors, as desired. Using the craft knife, cut a 1/2-inch long slit into the top of each foam egg. Hot glue the bunny ears into each slit.
  5. Hot glue a pom pom to the base of each foam egg, making the bunny tail.
  6. Tie a bow from each of the colored ribbon, then hot glue the bow to the ear on each corresponding color pot.
  7. Tuck moss into the edges of the pot between the egg and the pot edge. Trim the moss, as desired.photo collage tutorial of how to make a bunny in a pot easter craft
