“Mini” Yard Bunnies
Written by on Tuesday, March 1st, 2016

Honey, I shrunk the kids!

Well, actually…  just my yard bunny pattern.

This idea came to me when I was asked to head up a Spring Decorating Idea Class

at a huge convention last month.

I knew there wouldn’t be enough space (at the convention) for the attendees to create my large yard bunnies,

so I shrank my pattern and they loved creating their own “mini” versions of my original yard bunny.


These would be too cute in your yard,

lining your walkway,

in the center of a wreath

(this is the same “mini” pattern, but I’ve bent one ear back to create a profile bunny)

chocolate bunny in wreath

as the focal point of an Easter centerpiece (in a container),

or on the mantel, as I did this year….


To stand them up along the mantel,

I added a wooden skewer (the kind you use when you BBQ)

into the bottom of each bunny and inserted that into pieces of styrofoam I lined up along the back of my mantel.

In front of the styrofoam, I added a little faux grass and a string of egg lights,

with some cute flowers I found this year at Hobby Lobby.

And just in case you’re not familiar with how I make these bunnies,

here is my YouTube video DIY (for the large bunny, but same procedure):

I may add a few more details before Easter, but wanted to get this idea posted ASAP.

LOL… I didn’t even add faces to these little versions & they are STILL adorable!

If you would also like to create these mini bunnies too,

I’ve made the pattern available in my Shop, so

Enjoy the Creativity!

    What a cute idea. What are they made out of?

      Thanks Amber! I made these from sheets of styrofoam (a large sheet will create 5 bunnies). Here’s the link to my YouTube video (http://youtu.be/imuLO2J3uJI) demonstrating the easy DIY for the larger version, made the same way the minis are. Enjoy the creativity! Eileen
