I guess I need to check out my local dollar stores to see if they have ceramic or even papier mache bunnies. How cute is this? A bunny like this would be sweet to give as a gift to someone who can't have sweets at Easter time or added into a floral bouquet for a loved one. These could be used for a patient at a hospital or elderly living center resident. I know some little ones who would like them too. These would be easy to make for a group craft project. Wrap in tissue and put away for future decorating too. Definitely saving this craft!

Suz, check for ceramic banks at the dollar tree. This would look fantastic on some of those. A great gift for a youngster. The flower trim flower could easily come from the hair accessories isle. My daughter has a headband just like the "collar", save some money and work. And I'm certain some dollar store barrettes have come into my house that have flowers on them almost identical to the ones shown. Our stores sometimes carry glitter, and mod podge too. This bunny is darling, and I love your ideas!

This is super cute & just the right amount of glitter!

I really love the look of the glitter.
