  • Small paint brush
  • Floral moss
  • Faux succulents
  • White felt

  • Clothespins or craft clamps
  • Optional: bunny ear templates that you draw onto paper or card stock

 Instructions for Making DIY Bunny Planters

I started with the cutest little white planters that I got at Dollar Tree. I just love them 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 or use a small white planter like this!)

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!

If you don’t want the mess of paint and a paint brush, you could also use oil-based Sharpie markers. I love those things!

Step Two: Make a Bunny Ears Template

Next, I drew bunny ear templates onto scrap cardstock 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 didn’t draw on the felt – I just held the templates in place and carefully cut around them.

Then, 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.
