Bunny in the Flowerpot

Let kids get creative with colors to create a festive flower pot. Budget-friendly and adorable, this curious easter project can be done using paint, a clay pot and just a few other items.

You’ll need:

  • Terra cotta or clay pot
  • Hot glue gun
  • Small and large pom poms
  • Felt
  • Scissors
  • Craft paint

To make:

  • Start by cutting out two small oval shapes in the felt to make the feet. Then, snip three pieces of your larger pom pom to make bunny toes.
  • Next, using your glue gun, glue the feet and toes together.
  • Apply hot glue to the inside edge of the flower pot and set the large pom pom inside.
  • Now, glue your small pom pom on the end of the large pom pom to create the tail.
  • Lastly, glue the felt feet on each side of the large pom pom, making sure to attach to the flower pot as well.
  • Tip: You can leave your clay pot its normal terra cotta color, or opt to let kids paint the pot. If painting, allow a half-day for paint to dry.
