You can easily make this terra cotta bunny rabbit. Why not include the kids?
With Easter right around the corner, I chose to turn a cute little flower pot into a Bunny Rabbit. The steps were easy and very doable for children. But I think parents would need to help with the hot glue. While my design is minimal, you could definitely add to the bunny with whiskers, ribbon, flowers, and more.

cotton pom pom (or cotton ball)
pink craft foam
hot glue gun
I chose to repurpose a flower pot from another project my daughter made. To begin, I painted the outside of the pot white. Unfortunately, she had used glitter in her paint so it didn’t cover smoothly. Oh well. I should have sanded it off first.
Using the white cardstock and pink craft foam I cut out ears and a nose for the bunny. I didn’t have white craft foam so I used white cardstock which I really liked in the end because I could curl the ears.
Using hot glue, attach all the parts as you desire. I began with the ears on the back of the pot but I didn’t like the look so I removed them, cut a notch into each ear, and then glued it to the edge of the top of the pot.
I used white cotton yarn to make a small pom pom for the tail. You could use a bought pom pom or even a cotton ball.
Make a bunny treat box for Easter. Includes a free template or SVG file.
I created this cute Easter Bunny Treat Box to cut out as an SVG file. Then I thought, maybe I should do a post about how it could be used. But then, some people don’t have a personal cutting machine that could use the file. So there is also a link to a printable file that you can cut out by hand. Whichever template you use, I am sure you will find creative ways to use it. But just in case, here are a few ideas to get you started.
How about a napkin holder for your tablescape?
Add some Easter basket grass and place your decorated or filled eggs.
Of course, you can decorate it as you wish.
It could also be used as a candle holder. Unlike the image, I would recommend a battery-operated candle or a tea lite in a glass holder.
If you have a personal cutting machine, you can use this free svg file. [link to svg] And if you don’t, you can print out this free PDF printable file. [link to pdf]
Make a mini mica card using up materials you have on hand.
I like making cards that are alternative sizes. This is a good technique for using up scraps and materials you already have on hand. I am using a lot of materials to make this simple card but you don’t have to have them all to make a similar card. Follow along with the video tutorial to see how this simple card is done.
Versamark ink pad
alcohol ink marker
Here is a close-up of the finished mini card. The mica powder really shines in person. I like how the colors are enhanced by the black cardstock.
Let me know what you make cards in a variety of different sizes. I think mini or small are my favorite.

See how to transform an inexpensive picture frame from drab to fab with a patina kit. #dollartreecraft
With a picture frame from the Dollar Tree and a patina kit from Modern Masters (affiliate link), I transformed this simple frame from drab to fab. It takes a little bit of dry time between the steps but other than that, it is a really easy process. The kit has most of what you will need.
The patina kit comes with primer paint, copper paint, and the patina spray and nozzle. Simple directions are on the box. Handled the patina spray with caution, see the warning on the bottle and use in a well-ventilated area.
nail file or sandpaper
spray box or similar
rubber gloves (optional)
Watching the patina transform the frame as it dried was really interesting because you really don’t know what results you will get until it dries. The process was really fun and I can’t wait to try it on other surfaces. What would you use this kit on?
Make a layered artwork using materials from Denise Boddey Designs. #sponsored #designteam @DecoArtAcrylicPaints @ScrapbookAdhesives
Today I am posting as a part of the Denise Boddey Design Team. I am working with cut chipboard and a card topper. Painting and layering the elements make for a beautiful work of art. Framing mine, I used a frame from the dollar store that I did a patina finish on to coordinate the colors.

Chipboard (Arch Window)
Americana Chalk Finish (lace)

Follow along with the video tutorial:
I originally thought I was going to make a card, but as the pieces came together I knew it would work better as a framed piece of artwork. I am really pleased with the end results. What do you think is best, as a card or framed art?

A Week Away is the first faith-based musical of its kind. #MomentumInfluencerNetwork #AWeekAway #AWeekAwayMIN #sponsored
A Week Away is the first faith-based musical of its kind. Troubled teen Will Hawkins (Kevin Quinn) has a choice to make – go to juvenile detention or attend a Christian summer camp. While at camp, and with the help of his music, new friends, and love interest (Bailee Madison), he learns the healing powers of kindness, forgiveness, and faith can be found in the most unlikely of places.
This is a happy feel-good movie. To review the movie, my family sat down one evening and watched it together. Everyone, teens and adults, enjoyed the movie. The soundtrack features CCM hit songs “Baby, Baby”, “Place In This World”, “Awesome God/God Only Knows”, “Dive”, “The Great Adventure” and “Big House” from Christian artists Amy Grant, Michael W. Smith, For King & Country, Steven Curtis Chapman, and Audio Adrenaline.
Legendary contemporary Christian music artists Amy Grant and Steven Curtis Chapman make cameo appearances in the film as a camp counselor and the camp lifeguard, respectively. Amy Grant was thrilled to be part of the film, “It was incredible. How those songs were placed felt like they were written for the script and the story.”
For the giveaway we will be giving away one A Week Away merchandise item: IF the winner is a woman, it will be one movie sweatshirt. IF the winner is a man, it will be one movie t-shirt. Sizes go up to 2XL.
* Please note that any entry requirements must remain active and will be checked if you are the winner.

Materials and file links for making a Triangle Box with CutCardStock’s design team.
This post goes along with a project on CutCardStock’s blog where I share tutorials twice a month as a part of their design team. This post contains support links for the files and materials used in the triangle box post.
I used a Cricut Maker to cut the card stock for this project. Since the card stock is heavy (111#) I cut the file twice.
Special thanks go to companies that provide materials for me to use in my posts. For this project, thanks go to Cricut, CutCardStock, and ScraPerfect.
