Instructions

  • To begin, gather all supplies. Paint the outside of the three clay pots roughly with white craft paint and a dry paintbrush. Set aside to dry.
    Paint the three wooden dowels with brown craft paint, and then remove some of the paint with a baby wipe. Set aside to dry.
  • Insert the wooden dowels into the bottom of the moss rabbits to create a hole. Remove dowel, apply glue from a glue gun onto the top of the dowel and secure into the moss rabbit.
    Attach plaid ribbon around the rim of each of the three clay pots, securing the ends with a glue gun and glue sticks. 
  • Attach one 1.25” foam ball in the bottom of each clay pot with a glue gun and glue sticks. Insert the wooden dowel of the rabbit topiary into the center of the foam ball, securing with glue.
  • Tie narrow satin ribbons in assorted colors, into bows. Trim any long ends with scissors, and then attach one bow to the neck of each rabbit with a glue gun and glue sticks.
  • To finish, fill each of the three clay pots with green paper shred.
