It’s no secret that I absolutely LOVE The Range (I’m not kidding you, I’m really missing my weekly (well, at least once a week!) visit. Anyway, I bought this freestanding Easter Bunny from them a few weeks ago. It only cost me about £2 and knew I could do something with it to jazz it up a bit. I love it as it is, but it was just calling out for a big, colourful bow! And a big pink cotton tail tushy :). In case you’ve not guessed yet .. I love colour!
If you didn’t catch my Facebook Live, you can catch it here to find out how it went from blah to ta-daaaah!
here’s what you need
- I used the Bunny I bought. But of course you can trace your own and use some MDF or wood to cut it out. Alternatively, Ebay have one quite similar here (as long as stock lasts).
- Ribbon – lots of pieces of ribbon in different widths and textures. I used 8 pieces in total. Each length is about 5.5 inches.
- Glue gun
- A bright coloured pom pom. If you don’t have any to hand, or don’t want to buy a load, you can totally use some coloured cotton wool balls instead.
- Some scissors. If you are looking for some great craft scissors, you will love these! I got them as a Christmas present and they are A-MAH-ZING!
I just wanted to make the Easter Bunny feel a little less “shop bought” and adding a big bright bow was the perfect solution. And this bow is just the easiest to do – seriously, anyone can do this! Check out this quick video below for exactly how easy this one is to make.
making the perfect bow
It really is perfect to add to any project, or on top of a sign or even a present.
I peeled (.. OK, ripped..) off the small flower on the Easter Bunny and replaced it with the big bow.
That only left the little bunny tail to be replaced by a larger pom pom for a more colourful tushy :).
You will see from my Facebook Live that I also covered the back of the bunny with some colourful patterned cardstock. So, now it’s reversible, depending on what side you want to display. Simply trace the bunny onto your cardstock of choice and stick it down with some Mod Podge. That’s it!
Let me know what you think? Just a few simple steps to making something shop bought look like you’ve totally made this yourself. Have a go at making the bow! Once you’ve done it, you’ll never make a bow in another way again 🙂
You may recall in my Facebook Live that I said I would think of a way to make your own bunny without buying one? Well, check out how you can do this project with a cereal box and some craft paper here.
