Decorating with clay pots can be fun for any holiday. This cute Easter bunny and chick are an easy DIY that even the kiddos can create. All you need are a few clay pots in various sizes, some Deco Art paint and a few other items that you may have around your home..

Items Needed:

  • Clay pots - 3", 4", & 3" rose pot for small bunny, 8" & 10" for large bunny, and 1" for chick

  • Styrofoam balls - 1", 2" & 3"

  • Deco Art Patio Paint - White, Yellow,
    Pink, Blue

  • Sponge brushes

  • Hot glue gun

  • E6000 glue

  • White pipe cleaners

  • Orange pipe cleaner

  • Fun foam - white and pink

  • Wiggle eyes in various sizes

  • Spring ribbon

  • Straw hat

  • Spring flowers


    • Paint all of the clay pots white, except the 1" clay pot, paint it yellow.
      Let the pots dry at least 10 minutes, and then paint 2 more coats of patio paint on the pots letting them dry for 10 minutes in between coats.
      Place a line of E6000 glue on the bottom rim of the large clay pot and then a line of hot glue over it, and then place the bottom of the 8" clay pot on the bottom of the 10" clay pot. Let it dry for 24 hours.
      Next, place a line of hot glue on the edge of the open part of the 8" clay pot and place the straw hat on top so that it won't fall off. Cut a slit in the side of the straw hat to stick the ears in.
      Cut bunny ears out of the white fun foam and then cut smaller ears out of the pink for the inside of the white ears.
      Next, glue the pink to the white and cut the bottom of the ear at an angle, then stick it in the slit of the straw hat. Now paint one of the small Styrofoam balls pink for the bunny nose and paint another small Styrofoam ball yellow for the chicks head.
      While these are drying, cut the white pipe cleaners to make the bunny whiskers. Also, cut the orange pipe cleaner to make the chicks beak.
      Stick the wiggle eyes to the top white clay pot and then glue the pink Styrofoam ball underneath the eyes for the nose and then glue the 2" Styrofoam balls underneath the pink nose, these are the cheeks.
      Place the cut pipe cleaners into the cheeks for the whiskers.
      Glue the yellow Styrofoam ball to the top of the yellow painted clay pot, this is the chicks head.
      Stick the orange pipe cleaner into the yellow head for the beak and then glue the smaller wiggle eyes to the head.
      You can create these fun creatures in any size pots that you would like. Next decorate the bunny with a ribbon bow around the neck and a flower on the hat.
