Keep reading to find out how to make these DIY clay bunny planters!
Well, ladies and gentlemen, today is the day. Rose finally turns 25 and joins me in the confused land of not quite fresh out of college and not quite settling into your 30’s. Let’s all take a quick moment to welcome her to this new age before we get into bunny DIYs.
This is a rather sad day for me as I’ve spent the last 5?6? (you kinda loose track after a while) birthdays with her and now due to certain circumstances (our stupid pea brains getting too anxious) we won’t be together. Though I will be driving down to Boston the first chance I get to smother her with gifts and popcorn and quite possibly this little clay Easter bunny planter.
Speaking of, shall we get on with the DIY? Hokay. This little bunny planter is a cute way to add a bit of holiday flair to your home without going too over the top. Plus, it’s pretty stinking cute so you could get away with having it out all year round.
Shall we hop right into it?
- Sculpey/oven bake clay (can use colored or just plain white and paint it after)
- Rolling pin
- Plastic knife
- Glue gun
- Start by kneading your clay in your hands for a minute or so just to warm it up. Once it is more pliable, roll it out into a thin oval shape using a rolling pin.
- Trim off the sides of the oval so it is a thin, long rectangle.
- Take one end of the rectangle and loop it around to the other side to form a circle. Attach the edges together by gently kneading the clay onto itself.
- Roll out some more clay into a thin circle to act as the bottom of your pot. To measure you can put the circle you just made on top of the disk and cut away any excess.
- Attach the bottom of the pot to the circle by kneading the clay onto itself.
- Now make some ears and a tail for your bunny. For the ears, roll out some more clay and then taking your plastic knife cut out two ear shapes (like a triangle). For the tail take a small bit of clay and roll it into a small ball.
- Optional: if you want you can attach the ears and tail to the clay but for ease I did this later using a glue gun.
- Pop your clay pieces into the oven on a piece of parchment and bake at 275º per 1/4 inch thickness.
- Once your clay is baked and cooled you can go ahead and attach the ears and tail using a glue gun.
- Stick a cute succulent or cactus into your planter and you are good to go!
How about that bunny? A simple Easter DIY that is subtle enough to display all year round.
