I hope you are all doing well! Last week was very hard for me with all the unknown and places closing down suddenly. The most anxiety-producing part for me was the empty grocery store shelves.
Because of last week’s high anxiety levels, this week I’ve felt more down and depressed than I have in years. I almost didn’t post today because I just couldn’t find it in me to create anything.
However, I pulled myself together to create a rustic bunny from items I had purchased from Dollar Tree a few weeks ago. Of course, this was before “you know what” and I felt safe stalking the shelves of local stores.
What you need:
- Bunny decor from Dollar Tree
- Jute twine
- Hot glue gun and glue
- Bow or ribbon to make a bow
What you do:
Since I only needed one bunny I cut them apart. There’s a tough plastic ring holding them together, but I was able to cut it with scissors.
I also cut off the little plastic piece that was holding the ring on.
After separating the bunnies I removed the white tinsel that was wrapped around the plastic bunny form.
I removed all the outer pegs that were sticking out along the sides of the bunny form, including the ones between the ears.
The pegs between the ears are a lot stronger and thicker, but most of them popped right off easily.
Next, I laid my bunny form onto a piece of fabric that I already had on hand. Then I traced around it with a pencil.
After tracing around the bunny, I cut it out, but not right on the line. I wanted a little extra fabric so I could glue it to the plastic form.
Apparently I need new scissors because they could barely cut through this fabric! Either that or I need to relearn how to cut.
I wish I would have left a little more fabric on the sides when cutting. It would have worked better to pull the fabric around and hot glue it to the back.
However, I didn’t do that, so I glued the fabric to the front, pulling some around to the side and hot glued it all down.
Next, I outlined the rustic bunny with jute twine. I just hot glued the jute around the outside edges all the way around.
The last step is to add a cute little bow to the rustic bunny’s ear. I made a simple bow from ribbon that I had on hand.
That’s all there is to it!
This rustic bunny is a simple Dollar Tree DIY that only cost me $1 to make! And I love how cute it is with my Easter decor.
I also have 2 other bunnies left over so I can come up with other cute ways to use them. So I guess in a way it really only cost me about 33 cents to make this project.
Most of the pieces on my shelf are DIY’s from past projects. I share the full instructions in my posts, which you can find here:
