Clay Pot Bunny with a Glove Easter Craft

A glove and a terra cotta planter make this clay pot bunny and absolutely adorable Easter craft. It’s the perfect size for a tiered tray or tucked into a Spring decor display.

This is a very quick craft – you’re done in just about 5 minutes – and has a full, detailed printable tutorial and a video tutorial. I was shocked how quickly this cutie came together with just a clay pot and a single glove.

Cute DIY Bunny Made from Dollar Tree Finds

Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, my craft room is… well, it’s a mess most of the time. I love to craft but detest the whole, “put everything away” part of the crafting. While attempting to make a walkable path this week, I had inspiration strike from a few items on my craft table.

Obviously, this clay pot bunny and this DIY bunny sock gnome were created from procrastination. But aren’t they so cute?! If you can find a pair of gloves, make both, but first let’s get started.

Tips for Making This Tiered Tray Bunny DIY

  • Any color glove will work for this bunny Easter decoration idea – pink, white, yellow, or even a pale blue would be adorable.
  • You can use a 2.25 inch, 3 inch, or 4 inch terra cotta or plastic pot. I think anything larger than that would pull the gloves a bit too far apart to maintain the cohesive look on the body.
  • Reuse an older planter pot for this (clay or plastic) – everything is covered up, so it doesn’t matter what it looks like.
  • The bunny ears are bendable in my version (I used doubled-up pipe cleaners), but you can opt to make them flop down, as well.
  • Do not glue on the glove and you will be able to use the pots later in your Spring decor crafts or plantings.
  • You can make the whiskers from felt instead of embroidery thread. If you watch the video, you’ll see that I tried that for this one and just didn’t like the chunky look this time.

Notes

A white, pink, or gray glove will work for a cute clay pot bunny.

The smaller Dollar Tree pots (2.25 inch) will work, as well as the 3 inch I used. Be sure to flip the pot upside down so the wider, open part is at the bottom.

If you don't have faux fur, use felt, stuffed animal fur (they have them at the Dollar Tree), or whatever you have on hand.

  1. It says at the beginning it is printable instructions. I just want a picture of it so I know how to put it together. Did I read that wrong or is it just printable on pinterest? I absolutely love this and would love to make a few for family and friends.
