Name of Project
Bunny in a Basket Centerpiece
Ages This Project is Suitable For
Approximate Time Required to Complete This Project
Hour or more
Wood dowel, painted green
Paper flowers (made with pastel paper)
Any printable flower would do
Empty milk jug, cut under the handle
Bright Tissue paper cut in 2 inch squares
1. With a plastic empty milk jug I cut it under the handle with a ruler and straight edge. Smooth the edges with file or sandpaper.
2. Cut bright tissue paper in 2 inch squares (you will need several). Use a sponge for the Mod Podge for adequate coverage.
3. Using one side at a time, put Mod Podge onto the milk jug and overlap tissue squares till the side is covered. Repeat with all sides. Go over with Mod Podge to seal when dry.
4. I printed this Bunny in the basket printable but any Easter printable would do and then glued it onto cardboard, colored it with colored markers. Then I had pastel paper to make flowers and attached flexible straws with tacky glue.
5. With a piece of corrugated cardboard, make holes for the pole for the bunny and the four straws that hold the flowers and push the cardboard inside the milk jug. I put some tacky glue around the middle pole and the four for extra sturdiness. Cover with Easter grass and your basket is ready for sweet treats
