Easter is on the way! If you’re like me, you love to decorate for every holiday that comes your way, especially the ones that involve copious amounts of chocolate! Today I am going to show you how I made this cute little wine glass bunny with burlap ears!
What You’ll Need:
- Stemless Wine Glass (or similar shaped glass or jar)
- White Paint
- Decorative Applique Flower
- Light Pink Cardstock (or whichever colour you want for the ears)
- White Glue
- Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
- Paint Brushes (I used sponge brushes for painting)
- Markers (whatever colours you want for the face, I used black, and pink for the nose)
Step 1: Paint the inside of the wine glass
Step 2: Make the bunny ears
While the wine glass is se aside to dry, take your burlap to cut bunny ears. You can use chalk to draw your shape on the burlap, or, use a piece of paper to cut your shape to use as a guide when cutting your burlap. I used a piece of paper, and a can of cat food to hold it still while cutting the burlap.
Next, you will cut the inner ear colour from the cardstock. Fold the cardstock in half and draw the shape you want to cut. Then cut both pieces at the same time. (You can freehand draw directly on the cardstock, or, make a stencil/guide in paper to trace.)
Use white glue on the back of the cardstock pieces to attach to the burlap pieces. (A toothpick is helpful for spreading the glue around to avoid glue being too thick.
Step 3: Check wine glass, if dry, add a 2nd coat if desired
Step 4: Make the bow
Cut a long rectangle from the burlap. You can choose how long and wide to make the bow look how you want. I used 8″ by 1 1/4″. Then cut your ribbon of choice the same length as your burlap piece.
Next, fold the ribbon and burlap piece to create the bow shape with the seam at the back. As shown below. Use a dab of the glue gun to hold together. Then, attach the decorative flower to the middle of the good side of the bow with the glue gun.
Now you have all the pieces to put the bunny together
Step 5: Put the bunny together
Use the glue gun to attach the ears to the glass. if you find that they flop backwards, you can use toothpicks that are sticking up out of the glue to hold them up.
Next, use the glue gun to attach the bow. The bow should cover the bottom of the ears to hide where they are attached.
Step 6: Draw the face
You can absolutely skip this step if you like. I think without a face, this still looks adorable. I used sharpie markers to draw the face on this bunny. My drawing skills aren’t the greatest, but I did my best! I found that the pink didn’t show up very dark, so I did multiple coats with it and decided to outline it with the black.
