happy easter week!
i can't believe it's upon us already. i've been absent from the blog lately, mostly due to chasing around after these crazy munchkins all day long! :). they definitely keep me busy, but i managed to squeeze in a super cute easter craft this week, while they were napping! and i'm excited to share it with you!
this little guy came to me when i was thinking of how i would spruce up my easter/spring tablescape. i didn't have time to make a run to the craft store, so i used things i already had on hand. nothing beats free supplies!
what's fluffy, and free, and exists in copious amounts? in my vacuum??
i scored big time, since i hadn't emptied my vacuum in awhile (yay procrastination!). plenty of fluff to spare! i might make more of these little guys later to make into a whole bunny family.
i formed the fluff into a general bunny shape. i only had to pick out a few tell-tale chunks that this was from my living room floor, hehe ;) shhhh!
i tried out some large google eyes, and it was cute! but they were a bit too big for his face.
small eyes= much cuter!!
last minute inspiration: i added a real life baby carrot to give it some flair. with a little bit (more like a lot) of hair spray it held together perfectly! i can't wait to use him on my easter tablescape. he will fit right in with the other decor.
happy "hoppy" easter my friends! i hope you have a wonderful week. don't forget to share on pinterest! :) - - - --
p.s. i also took a stab at dryer lint as a possible medium (which was coincidentally the exact same color as the vacuum fluff... teal much alyssa??) it worked ok, but didn't have the same dimension as the vacuum stuff.
glad i went the vacuum route instead!
