I made these adorable planted bunnies for my Easter tablescape and I'm back to show you how to make them!

Planted Easter Bunny Butts Table Place Markers

Easter table place markers

When I was creating my Easter tablescape I wanted something cute to use as table place markers. And I wanted to make something that didn't require me to buy any supplies!

This is actually a very old craft that I did years ago when I was much, much younger. Back then I used pre-made pom-poms and little terracotta clay pots.

For this resurrected craft project I put a little bit of an updated spin on it!

Supplies Needed

How to make easter bunny butts

Here's how to make them:

Step 1) Paint your peat pots.

I did a very sloppy paint job to allow some of the rustic looking peat pots to show through.

Step 2) Create pom-poms with the Clover pom-pom maker.

This thing is AWESOME and so easy to use! I have a tutorial on how to use them here: How to Use the Clover Pom-Pom Maker.

Seriously... I think it's even easier than the old fork or cardboard method and gets much better results with more symmetrical looking pom-poms.

You want to use the large pom-pom maker so that  your pom-poms are bigger than the pots, otherwise they'll just drop down to the bottom of the pot!

Step 3) Glue the pom-poms onto the painted pots.

Put a bead of glue around the rim of the pot and set your pom-pom on top. Press down slightly with your hand on the pom-pom to ensure the glue grabs on to the fibers of the yarn.

They should sit on the rim of the pot like so...

Step 4) Add fuzzy bunny tails!

Just put a drop of glue on the small pom-pom and stick it on the large pom-pom.

Step 5) Cut out the bunny feet from the matching felt.

I just drew a little pear shape on paper and cut that out to act as my pattern. You want the feet to be quite large, about the same height as the peat pots, so about 2" or so.

Step 6) Cut out the little paw pads from pink felt. 

You'll need 3 little circles and 1 oblong shape for each foot.
Glue the pink paw pads to the feet.

Step 7) Glue the feet onto the sides.

They should cover about half of the pot and half of the pom-pom.

Step 8) To make these into place markers add a chenille stem curled into a loop at the top to hold the card.

Slide the end of the stem down through the pom-pom fibers and glue to the inside of the pot. (Note: this should ideally be done at the beginning before you put the pom-pom on the pot but this was a last minute decision for me so I didn't do it in that order, I added the chenille stems at the end).

What do you think? Cute no?!

I think they would be adorable in tan for a little brown bunny and grey for a little "grey hare"!!

These would also be fun for kids to make and easier if you used pre-made pom-poms!
