Tips to Make Easter Bunnies in Terra Cotta Pots
- First, start by grabbing the free Easter bunny ear cut file here. You can certainly cut your own, and you do not have to use the cut file with the cutting machine. It’s just as easy to print the jpg and cut the shapes out with scissors. So, whatever is easier for you.
- One of the things about this craft is that you can go at it multiple ways. I used 2-inch foam eggs and small pots, because I wanted to put these in my farmhouse tray. But, you can make the same craft using the largest eggs (I believe the larges I saw were 8-inches) that you can find and larger terra cotta pots, size up the ears and use a larger pom pom and you have a fun Easter porch decoration!
- I used a little moss to add a touch of unifying color to the whole set of three. But if you would rather, you could use some Easter basket filler grass that’s colorful to match the pot color!
How Do I Make this Bunny in a Pot Easter Craft?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial.
- 3 3-inch Terra Cotta Pots
- 3 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
- 3 1/2-inch White Pom Poms
- Acrylic Craft Paint in Pink, Blue and Purple
- Tissue Paper
- Hot Glue Gun & Glue
- Craft knife
- Paint each of the terra cotta pots a different color (one pink, one blue and one purple). Allow the paint to dry completely.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Hot glue a pom pom to the base of each foam egg, making the bunny tail.
- Tie a bow from each of the colored ribbon, then hot glue the bow to the ear on each corresponding color pot.
- Tuck moss into the edges of the pot between the egg and the pot edge. Trim the moss, as desired. Then enjoy!
