let’s get started
Before I started assembling my Easter Bunny Butt, I arranged the items and rearranged them again until I found the look I wanted!
In fact, I sent several photos of different arrangements to my daughter to get her opinion.
I first added a sawtooth hanger to the backside of the canvas so I had the option to hang this craft in the future.
Then I started with my favorite mesh ribbon.
I meant to add my gray polka dot ribbon over the mesh ribbon, but I forgot and glued one of the two small wood slices as the Bunny feet down first.
In the end it worked out and that sometimes happens when crafting.
Don’t fret, just enjoy the process.
Once I had the two Easter Bunny feet glued down with both E6000 and hot glue, I worked on the placement of the head (small wood round) and the Bunny Butt (medium wood round).
Next, I decided to use a cream lace ribbon as the Bunny Ears.
I roughly measured how tall I wanted my Bunny ears.
Then I folded the lace over in half and cut the ears in a rounded triangle.
Next, I then placed them where I wanted them. tacked this down with hot glue and then I used both E6000 and hot glue to secure the Bunny’s head.
Next came the Bunny Butt.
I repeated this process and glued the medium wood round down also with E6000 and hot glue.
Then I made my Messy Bow for my Easter Bunny Butts tail.
I used my favorite colors, dark (Naval) blue and mustard with gray polka dot ribbon and my favorite mesh ribbon.
Once I had my messy bow assembled I glued this towards the top of my Bunny Butt.
I added a little grass-y embellishments to my project by using left over leave stems from another project.
I kept them cut short because I didn’t want them to compete with the height of my bunny.
Once I had these placed and glued down on each side of my Bunny Butt I cut small strips of gray polka dot ribbon and glued these down over the bottom of the stems on each side to camouflage the leave stems and hot glue.
Time to show off our Bunny
I was worried with the wood rounds this craft would not do well as a shelf sitter.
As long as this project is leaning against a wall or another item, it worked great!
Otherwise, I have the option of using the sawtooth hanger I applied on the backside and I can hang my craft as well.
