SUPPLIES NEEDED TO MAKE YOUR OWN BUNNY BOTTOM WREATH ATTACHMENT:
- Bunny Bottom (Hobby Lobby)
- Puffy 3D Paint White
- Scrap Fabric of your choosing – (3 styles with 3 coordinating colors throughout)
- Heat Transfer Vinyl: Blossom
- Floral Scrapbook Paper (Optional)
- Putty Knife – Flat Edge Tool
- Titebond Wood Glue
- Exacto Knife
- Deco Art Acrylic Paint: Country Pink
- Pom Pom Maker by Honey Hush
- Greenery garland
- Florals (Dollar Tree)
- 3 Pipe Cleaners
- Chip or paint brushes
- Hot glue
- Heat Gun
- Baby Wipes
- Puppy Pads
1 – Grab your wooden Bunny Bottom, your putty knife/flat edge tool, and your heat gun. Be extra careful as you reactivate the glue with heat, to help you easily remove the bunny’s legs. Be patient as you try to pop them off, carefully not to cut yourself with the sharp putty knife.Tip* Do not rush this step and accidentally break your bunny’s legs or lose a finger.
2 – Move the bunny bottom aside and grab your HTV paper. Tip* If you want to use Scrapbook paper instead, you totally can.
3 – Place your HTV paper so the design side is flat down so you can easily trace your bunny’s feet with a pencil. Tip* Pay attention to the edge of your HTV paper so you don’t accidentally cut into the blank space label as I did. Oops!
4 – Cut out your traced bunny feet and place them onto your wooden bunny feet. Try to line up as close as you can.
5 – Grab your Heat Press, set at 350 degrees, and rest on your bunny feet for 30 seconds. Tip* If you are doing it with scrapbook paper, use the Mod Podge method to apply your paper instead.
6 – With an Exacto knife, remove any excess paper from your bunny feet.
7 – Remove the top film from your HTV paper.
8 – Add your cute bunny feet back to your wooden bunny bottom with Titebond Wood Glue. Tip* Hot glue works just fine, so use that instead if that is all you have. But if you intend for this sign to be placed outdoors, use a more sturdy glue type.
9 – Let’s add some texture and a bit of a cuteness overload. Grab your 3D Puffy Paint, color white. Begin to fill in all the empty space on your bunny bottom. I added a LOT so it took way longer than the 4 hours it said it would. So again, be patient with this craft. I promise it is worth it. Tip* DO NOT TOUCH IT while it is trying to dry. It is hard to fix. Doable, but challenging. Trust me.
10 – Once completely and not a tacky texture, grab your pink acrylic paint and cover the wooden tail. This will make sure no wood peeks through your pom pom tail once we add it. Set aside to dry.
11 – I love my Pom Pom Maker from Honey Hush. If you don’t have one, get one. Tip* You can do it the old fashion way using a piece of cardboard, looking at the design of the Honey Hush. But again, they are worth the investment, friends.
12 – With your scrap fabric, cut tiny slits on the edges. Then rip your fabric to give you several long strips. Tip* I like to stick to 3 colors that coordinate with my different fabric choices. 5 is a bit too many colors in my opinion.
13 – Wrap your fabric strips, one at a time around your pom pom maker. Be sure to add at least one of each strip of your different fabrics. With a piece of jute, double knot in the center before you pull off. Make sure your knot is nice and tight. Then remove and cut the fabric on looped ends to create your pom pom. Fluff if, make it fancy, and cut it to size.
14 – Use Titebond glue to place your pom pom on your pink bunny’s bottom. Tip* If this is going indoors, you can just use hot glue to secure the pom pom. You can stop here, by adding some leather strip bands or jute to hang your sign if you want… but I wanted to keep going. You do you, and have fun with it.
15 – Grab your small grapevine and greenery garland. Play with placement as you work your greenery around your grapevine, hot gluing in place to keep secure. Tip* To make it extra secure, use wire instead of hot glue.
16 – Trim your flowers from stems and place them on your grapevine around the top. Use hot glue or E600. Tip* Remember to use a more sturdy glue if this decor is going outside to withstand the elements.
17 – To add the bunny bottom, grab 3 pipe cleaners to glue on the back. Leave edges on both sides to allow you to wrap around your grapevine once the glue is dry.
18 – Fluff your bunny tail and determine where to hang your new super cute, Bunny Bottom Wreath!
This DIY Spring craft had all of my creative juices flowing from the very beginning. It was going to be just a cute, little, outdoor sign. But, it quickly became something even cuter throughout the crafting process. And I am not mad about it one bit. I had no intentions of this becoming a wreath, but I just ADORE how it turned out. The textured bunny fur from the puffy paint. The colorful pom pom tail. The greenery and flowers to accent my bunny’s feet! I love it all so much. What do you think? I’d love to hear some bunny’s opinions, other than mine. See what I did there?
