- Small paint brush

- Multi-surface glue, like E6000 brand

Dollar Tree Easter Craft How-To: Instructions for Making DIY Bunny Planters
I started with the cutest little white planters that I got at Dollar Tree. I just love these with their facets and iridescent shimmer! They came in other colors, too, like pink and turquoise, but I think white is best for this project. (Update: I don’t think Dollar Tree carries these anymore, but you could paint a flower pot white to make this craft!)
Step One: Paint a Nose and Whiskers
I used a small paint brush to paint a pink nose and gray whiskers onto the planter. I used multi-surface acrylic paint to make sure it adheres well!
Step Two: Make a Bunny Ears Template
Next, I drew bunny ear templates onto scrap card stock and cut those out. I drew a large ear and a smaller ear.
Step Three: Create the Bunny Ears
Then, I used the larger ear template to cut out two white felt ears. I used the smaller template to cut out two pink felt ears.
I glued one pink felt ear onto each white felt ear.
Step Four: Attach the Ears to the Planter
Next, I placed a thin line of multi-surface E6000 glue around the inner rim of the planter. I pressed the ears onto the glue, and held them in place temporarily with clothespins. Once the glue hardened, I removed the clothespins.
Step Five: Fill the Planter
I filled the planter with craft moss to help hold the faux succulent in place. This stuff makes a mess, so have your broom or dust buster ready! 😉
And for the final touch, I placed a faux succulent into the planter.
These little bunny planters make me so happy; I think they’re just darling! They are a great spring or Easter craft project, and make for a sweet Easter hostess gift or addition to your spring decor!
If you wouldn’t mind, I’d love for you to pin this Dollar Tree Easter craft project to Pinterest and help spread the love!
