Boxwood Bunny

143 Views
I started my blog the first week of June. Three weeks later, I got my dream job as a social media manager at Trees n Trends. (TNT is a unique home decor store based out of Paducah, KY, with ten stores scattered among the southeast.) As much as I love my job, I haven't been able to devote as much attention to my blog as I'd like. After working here for 9 months, I think I have finally learned how I can do both.

One of my "duties" at work is to scour the internet for the latest BIG THING. It so happens that a couple weeks ago, I found the cutest idea for Easter on Hometalk. ClutterBug had posted this and to say I was impressed is an understatement! I got to thinking, I have all of the materials at my disposal and our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram followers would go ga-ga over this!





Time: 5 Minutes Cost: $60 Difficulty: Easy

I went to the store and found a container/planter that would act as the base.

Next, I found a larger boxwood orb/ball and sat it on top. (I'm thinking I should have used double sided tape to hold it in place.)

I found a smaller boxwood orb/ball and sat it on top. I wasn't for sure how to secure the smaller one to the larger one, and I was pressed for time, so I ended up sticking two sticks inside to connect them. If this was going outside, I'd have to think of a better idea.

Found myself perusing the Easter aisle at the Dollar Store. Finally, I located some bunny ears. I stuck the headband part inside the smaller boxwood.

Since I'm not the greatest at making bows, I asked one of the gals in the floral department to make me one. Hers was a million times better than one I could have made.

So, that's it. After getting all five "ingredients" at the store, it took less than five minutes to make and was not difficult whatsoever. Cost-wise, it really depends on the quality of the items used. For instance, the ceramic container was about $40 the two orbs were about $20 at the store, the ears were $1 and the bow was free. :-) (The perks of knowing floral designers!) If I were to do this for myself, I think I could do it all for about $20.

Many thanks to ClutterBug for INSPIRING me.

Materials I used for this project:

  • Ceramic planter   (Trees n Trends)
