Everyone loves seeing bunny butts! They are so cute and adorable! Who can resist smiling at that popular commercial with a bunny beating a drum and its' butt twitching to the beat! So why not bring a touch of whimsy for your home décor this Easter season by displaying an easy to make duo of bunny butts in search of their favorite treats? And the best part, you're recycling a biodegradable container and it's a fun and quick craft to create especially with kids!
Starting with a biodegradable basket that contained organic tomatoes .  .  .
paint it in your favorite easter color (purple pearl)!  Then add a bit of floral grass.
Next, wrap fleece around a Styrofoam ball and secure with a chenille stem.  Cut off excess fleece.  Wrap a smaller ball the same way.
Push some of the grass aside where the balls should go and insert in container.  Glue on a pom pom slightly below the middle of each ball.
Copy and paste bunny feet template to Word and adjust size in Format, if needed.  Print and cut out the feet patterns on a folded piece of fleece.
With right sides together, hand-stitch fleece edge leaving an opening.  Turn inside out, and lightly stuff with poly-fil.  Close opening with an invisible stitch.  Cut out pads in felt and glue on top of the feet.
Glue on bunny feet upside down to edge of container.  And finally, place faux carrots in grass for an adorable look!
