Who doesn’t love chocolate rabbits and jelly beans? This little wreath celebrates the fun of an Easter basket and would make a cute accent to your springtime decor.

To create your jelly beans, form white Makin’s Clay® into jelly bean shapes.

Paint the top of bean with a thick coat of Gloss Enamels paint.  Let dry thoroughly, then paint the opposite side.  

To create your chocolate rabbit, follow manufacturer instructions and use Amazing Mold Putty and a real chocolate rabbit to create a mold.  View this episode of Behind These Eyes to see the process

Use Terra Cotta Makin’s Clay® to create a faux chocolate rabbit (you can use any shade of brown for this - create “white” chocolate with Natural clay, “dark” chocolate with a darker brown shade, etc.  You can even add the colored “chocolate” accents that some real chocolate rabbits by using colored clay).   

Let your jelly beans and rabbit dry for 24 hours. 

Attach a handful of celophane Easter grass to the bottom of the wreath with 3-in-1 Adhesive.  

Use 3-in-1 to glue a wooden craft stick to the back of your rabbit to help hold it upright on the wreath. Let dry.

 Trim the stick as needed and then push stick into wreath and mount rabbit in center of grass. 

Use 3-in-1 to mount your jelly beans around the rabbit.  

Tie a bow with wide pink satin ribbon and glue to wreath beneath the grass and candies.
