Create Cute Chick and Bunny Clay Pots in 15 Minutes!
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, Carolina from 30 Minute Crafts and Morena from Morena’s Corner are sharing quick and easy crafts that you can make in 15 minutes for less! And they have invited some crafty friends 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 what you will need to Create cute Chick and Bunny Clay Pots:
- Clay Pots in assorted sizes – I used a 4″ pot for the Bunny and two 2″ pots for the Chicks
- Kunin Classics™ Felt 9” x 12” Craft Cuts – White (1); Baby Pink (1); Yellow (1) and Orange (1)
- Tombow MONOTWIN Permanent Marker
- Expo International 1/2″ Rayon Ric Rac Trim – Lime and Purple
- Americanna Acrylics by DecoArt – Titanium White, Banana Cream and Poodleskirt Pink
- Ribbon – Robins Egg Blue; Wiggly Eyes (6); Glue Gun and Glue Sticks; Black Twine (six 2″ lengths); Scissors; Plain Paper; Pencil; Paintbrush
Here’s how to Create cute Chick and Bunny Clay Pots:
Base coat the 4″ clay pot Titanium White, let dry and apply a second coat if necessary.
Base coat the two 2″ clay pots Banana Cream, let dry. Apply a second coat if necessary.
Draw patterns for Bunny and Chicks on plain paper with a pencil, 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 ric rac.
Here are a few close up photos of the completed Bunny…
And his friends, the Chicks!
