It’s time for another round of Craft Lightning and this month is all about crafting with CLAY POTS! All week long Angie from the Country Chic Cottage and Carolina from 30 Minute Crafts are sharing quick and easy crafts that you can make in 15 minutes for less! And they have invited some crafty friends like me to join in, so I have created cute Chick and Bunny Clay Pots which are perfect Easter crafts to create with the kiddos!

Here’s how to Create a Chick and Bunny from Terra Cotta Pots:
Basecoat the 4″ clay pot Titanium White, let dry and apply a second coat if necessary.
Basecoat the two 2″ clay pots Banana Cream, let dry. Apply a second coat if necessary.
Download patterns for Bunny and Chicks BELOW ⇓ then cut out to use as templates. Using the fine tip of the Permanent Marker, trace two ears and a muzzle on White Felt, four Wings on Yellow Felt, two inside ears and a nose on Baby Pink Felt, then cut out with scissors. Cut out two triangles for beaks and ten strips 1/8″ by 4″ for comb from Orange Felt. TIP: Cut inside the traced line, so that your project looks neat and clean.
Glue felt pieces onto Bunny and Chicks, referring to the photo for placement. Gather orange strips and tie off in the center with string, then cut in half to create the Chicks’ “comb”.
Secure the combs in the clay pot drain holes with glue, then fluff.
Attach six 2″ long pieces of black twine to the Bunny’s muzzle, then adhere wiggle eyes. Embellish base of Bunny with blue ribbon bow and Chicks with lime and purple rick rack.
And here is Mr. Bunny ready for his close-up! I love using wiggle eyes in different sizes to give a whimsical look, but also because I can never find two the exact same size. How about you?
And his friends, the Chicks! Use what you have on hand to create, don’t be confined by a supply list. Use paper or fabric instead of the felt, use larger (or smaller) clay pots and use buttons for eyes!
I hope you have enjoyed my cute Chick and Bunny clay pots and you will use them as a jumping-off point to showcase YOUR creativity! Make a set for a Teacher, Friend, Neighbor or use them as place cards for your family’s Easter dinner. They are so quick and easy to make with the kiddos.
