Here’s how to create a Bunny Clothespin Craft with Dollar Tree Supplies:
To begin the Dollar Tree Clothespin Bunnies, gather all materials and remove supplies from packaging. Remove metal springs from wooden clothespins and set them aside. Attach the two clothespin halves back together in the same configuration using a glue gun and glue sticks. MONO Multi Liquid Glue can be used, but you will have to wait for it to dry.
Basecoat the front, back, and sides of the wooden clothespins with Titanium White acrylic craft paint and a flat paintbrush. Let dry and apply a second coat, if necessary. Using a small paintbrush, add the inside of the bunny ears with Cotton Candy Pink acrylic craft paint.
Measure and cut one-inch sections of black embroidery floss. Separate the floss into six strands and place three onto the bunny’s face, using the photo as a guide. Apply a small dot of MONO Multi Liquid Glue on the back of a pink rhinestone and attach over whiskers where they intersect. Glue wiggle eyes above nose with MONO Multi using the fine tip applicator.
Draw a mouth under the nose and paws on each foot of the clothespin bunny with the fine point tip of the MONOTWIN Permanent Black Marker, using the photo as a guide.
Tie a variety of colorful baker’s twine into small bows. Attach to the bunny under the mouth with a small dot of MONO Multi Liquid Glue. These fun Spring colors of baker’s twine come three to a pack for just one dollar in the craft section of the Dollar Tree! Attach a small white pom pom to the back of the Clothespin Bunny as the fluffy tail.
