After a quick trip to Dollar Tree, I have created cute Chick and Bunny Clay Pots which are perfect Easter crafts to create with the kiddos! I love a craft project that only takes 15 minutes, especially with crafting with kids because sometimes their attention spans can be short. Easy to cut Kunin Classics Felt Craft Sheets and one coat coverage Americana Acrylic Paints, work perfectly when paired with clay pots from the garden section at Dollar Tree. Free patterns are included below to make this craft project even quicker and easier.

Here's how to Create a Chick and Bunny from Terra Cotta Pots:
To begin Chick and Bunny Clay Pots, gather all supplies. Basecoat the 4″ clay pot with Titanium White acrylic craft paint, let dry, and apply a second coat if necessary. Basecoat the two 2″ clay pots with Banana Cream acrylic craft paint, let dry. Apply a second coat if necessary. The unfinished clay pots will absorb more paint than other surfaces.

Using the fine tip of the MONO TwinPermanent 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 the Chicks' combs 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. Insert the tabs of the Bunny's ears into the drain hole at the top of the clay pot. Gather the orange strips, tie them off in the center with twine, and then cut them in half to create the Chicks' “comb”.
Secure the combs in the clay pot drain holes with glue, then fluff. Add two wiggle eyes to each of the Chicks just above the beaks using a glue gun and glue sticks. You can use liquid craft glue for this project, but you will have to wait for the glue to dry.
Attach six 2″ long pieces of black twine to the Bunny's muzzle, then adhere wiggle eyes with a glue gun and glue sticks. Embellish the base of Bunny with a 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 of the exact same size. How about you?
And his friends, the Chicks! Use what you have on hand to create, and don't be confined by a supply list. Use paper or fabric instead of the felt craft sheets, 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!
