Happy Spring everyone!!! For Easter this year, I wanted to create something fun and organic looking for Easter decor. I love the look and texture of moss, and the bunny silhouette screams “Easter” in my mind. Here’s my take on some bunny topiaries.
I was inspired by a blogger’s Bunny Topiary I saw on Pinterest, and decided to create my own version using similar materials. Thanks so much to Julie from Less Than Perfect Life of Bliss for the inspiration 🙂 Click on the link below to connect to her blog post about her Easter Topiary.

I started with printing out a fun bunny silhouette I found online. I then played around with enlarging it on my photocopier. I had to use three different copies to get the size I wanted. I simply cut them out and taped them together to make one big bunny silhouette.
Then, I traced the silhouette on to some cardboard, and cut it out using an exacto knife.
Next, I painted the bunnies a forest green, just in case the moss didn’t cover everything.
This is the remaining supplies I used for this project. Total cost was $6.00 for both topiaries. All items were purchased at the dollar store, and I only ended up using a fraction of the moss I picked up.
After the green paint had dried, I glued the moss to the carboard using a regular glue stick.
After the glue had dried, I turned the bunnies over and gave them a little hair cut. Just a trim to get rid of the excess moss that was hanging over the sides.
I like my men scruffy, but not my bunnies so much. Here is my finished bunny, all cleaned up.
I had some burlap ribbon lying around, so I paired it with some pretty blue ribbon, to finish it off.
I added some Spanish moss to the pot. I liked the contrasting colours of the green and Spanish moss, and think it adds some interest.
I decided to place them on both sides of my sink, so they look like they’re leaping towards one another. This was such a fun and easy craft, I think I might make a ton more for different occassions. The possibilities are endless, and it’s a great way to add some happy spring colours to any room in your home.
Thanks so much for checking out my blog. I’ll be back on Saturday with another fun post. See you all then 🙂
