Clay Pot Bunny and Turtorial


This is not my brainchild but actually something I came across while in Michael's craft store a few weeks ago. I saw and just knew that I had to make it!!!

This is what you will need...

Terra Cotta pots in 4", 3" and 2"
Two 1 1/2 " Terra Cotta pots
One 3" Terra Cotta saucer
One 3" Styrofoam ball cut in half
One 1 1/2" Styrofoam ball cut in half
2 pink pipe cleaners
2 white pipe cleaners
1 white fuzzy chenille pipe cleaner
Wired twine
Pink pom pom
Wiggle eyes
 White craft paint
Any other color craft paint for hat and trim
Small flowers (I used the little ones I found in the bridal isle of Michael's)
Ribbon
Hot glue gun


What you will need to do...

1. Paint the 3 large clay pots white...you may need to do 2-3 coats and let dry.

2. In the meantime take half of the 3" Styrofoam ball and glue it to the inside of the Terra Cotta saucer and then paint the entire hat desired color. When the paint dries add white polka dots to the saucer.

3. To make the ears cut the pink and chenille pipe cleaners into desireed equal lengths X 2. Take one pink pipe cleaner and one of the chenille cleaners and lie them on the table next to one another. Now bend them in half keeping the chenille cleaner on the outside. Wrap the bottom of the chenille cleaner around the pink pipe cleaner to secure the two together. Use the ends of the pink pipe cleaner to insert into the Styrofoam of the hat to create one ear. repeat this step to make second ear.


4. Cut the flowers off of their stems and insert individually into the Styrofoam top of the hat.

5. Take your 3 white Terra Cotta pots and hot glue the larger 2 together.

6. To make the arms, cut two 2-3 inch pieces of twine using wire cutters. Wrap the two around one another and slip one end inside one of the 1 1/2 inch clay pots. Open up wire to secure the pot to the wire. Repeat to make second arm. Tie ribbon to the twine.


7. Hot glue the arms to the bottom of the top of the two pots you have already glued together. Once secure take the last pot and glue it over the second pot and arm tops.

8. Now you are ready to make the face. Take the small Styrofoam ball halves and glue to the rim or the top pot. Glue on the pink pom pom nose and eyes. Cut the 2 white pipe cleaners into 6 equal pieces and poke 3 into each half of the Styrofoam ball to create the whiskers.


9. Finally glue the hat to the bottom of the top pot and you have your bunny!!!

Happy Easter!!!

  2. Thanks so much for reminding me! This is a craft I used to make when
    I taught kindergarten. Though nowhere near as pretty as your 2.0 version! I'm inspired to try it again.
    Hugs,

  5. Hi Barbara - What an adorable tutorial! With such simple ingredients that we all have!

    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog (via Dee!). I love the fact that you have put your staging and re-design - plus all of your other craft ideas on your blog. I have separated the two - which drives me a little crazy (my other blog is www.studioofdecorativearts.blogspot.com).

    You have a lot of followers - and I can see why! I am a little late to the blogging party and I have a lot to catch up on. I do know that when I put a project on another blogger's site - it boosts my readership, so I know I have to do that.

    I have been thinking and thinking about how I could increase my readership in the r.e staging arena. Maybe you and I could come up with some ideas!

    Thanks again for writing!
