Moss-Covered Rustic Bunny for Spring and Easter Decor
I picked up a pair of wood and metal rabbits at Michaels the other day in their Easter aisle,for my mantel, and I thought they would be much,much cuter as a moss-covered rustic bunny.
I knew the green, mossy texture would add a lot to an fun spring mantel. I even found a bag of mixed moss that had regular moss and reindeer moss and I like how the mixed texture looked. If you love the look of moss, see how we filled a dough bowl with moss and added faux orchid for a dining table centerpiece.
I added white craft glue all over the top part and then started gluing my moss. The moss I found had several different kinds in the box, so I mixed it up a bit for different textures on my rabbit. This is so easy, you could cover any wooden surface with moss and make it spring and green feeling.
I let it dry a few hours, and it was ready to style!
I’ll show you both of them once I get my Easter/Spring mantel done.
I added some really cute faux eggs, and a birch basket. I wanted the Spring decor to last as long as it could. I painted some bunnies to look like terracotta for a dining table centerpiece and love the texture they have.
I found this really great nest at Homegoods! It was such a great size and I loved how it had the eggs already in it, and the cute moss around the outside. I thought it went well with my bunny.
I think moss is such a great way to decorate for Spring! This moss-covered rustic bunny brings in some much needed green! If you don’t want to make one, here is a(affiliate link) cute moss sitting bunny ready to go!
Which reminds me, I recently had a new plant addition to the house! I bought an olive tree! I’ll probably move him outside when it gets a bit warmer, but I love the color and texture he adds.
I haven’t seen any in any plant shops around here, so I ended up ordering him on-line from Home Depot. It came about two weeks after I ordered it, which was faster than I thought! Luckily, I already had the(affiliate link) Olive Bucket to put him in. I’ll have to let you know how he does. I’ve never grown one before. I did have a Fig tree(twice) that kept dying, so hopefully with the Olive tree with I’ll have slightly better luck!
