Peter Cottontail 3 Ways

Peter Cottontail 3 Ways

Materials:

  • Plastic rabbit treat holder
  • Gallery Glass Liquid Leading in silver
  • Glass stain in assorted colors
  • Small paintbrush

Instructions:

  1. I simply drew diagonal lines using silver liquid leading to create a diamond pattern.
  2. Then, after determining the color palette I wanted to use by sketching it out on scrap paper and coloring it in with colored pencils, I followed the sketch and filled in each area with glass stain.
     
  3. Repeat on the back and your bunny is finished. You could still fill him with Easter treats and present him as a great surprise to someone special. Once the treats are gone they will still have a pretty Easter decoration for years to come.

Materials:

  • Plastic rabbit treat holder
  • Gingham cotton fabric in pink, pale blue, pale green and yellow
  • Pink and blue ¼” gingham ribbon
  • Plaid Mod Podge
  • Paintbrush

Instructions:

  1. These soft pastel colors of gingham just say SPRING to me so I thought it would be fun to incorporate them into an Easter decoration. Random size pieces of pale green, blue, pink and yellow gingham were torn and then decopauged into the insides of the bunny using Plaid Mod Podge.
     
  2. A bit of pink and blue gingham ribbon around his neck and he was complete. When placed in a window, the sun still shines a bit through this bunny giving it a soft glow. And yes, it still opens so it can be filled with treats and presented as a gift.

Materials:

  • Plastic rabbit treat holder
  • Artificial flowers in spring shades
  • Elmer’s Craft Bond Tacky Glue

Instructions:

  1. This is the easiest of all to make – simply fill the bunny with an assortment of spring colored artificial flowers (with the faces of the flowers facing the outside of the bunny) and close.
     
  2. Then use Elmer’s Craft Bond Tacky Glue to attach a few accent flowers to create a wreath around the neck. The sun doesn’t shine through this one, but it still looks bright and cheerful on a windowsill, especially when joined by his two bunny pals.
