I have hobbies other than writing. Not cooking and not baking, but on occasion I actually use the sewing machine in the living room and use a tiny portion of the mountain of craft items in the garage.
As the neighbor kid said the other day when he stopped by and ended up crafting with us, “Wow. You have everything. Just everything.” Yea, she who dies with the most craft stuff wins, right?
The grandkids were coming over to color Easter eggs and I figured since my cookie jar is either empty or has store bought cookies in it, I needed to earn my Gwamma Badge for the year. It had to be something memorable. Something gramma-ey.
Follow the blog bunny trail to find out how I found the bunny craft idea.
I started at Mom’s the Word on Monday,
then went to Family Home and Life,
and ended up at What Happens at Grandma’s. I knew instantly this would be my get-off-my-computer-and-create craft. If ya want the tutorial, click on the pic. The Grandma with secrets gives great step-by-step directions with pics. I like pics. I need pics.
To make the project easier for my grandkids, ages 5 and 3, we prepared most of the craft ahead of time. I sewed the bodies and my 10 year old daughter, Beka, stuffed and glued them shut. I tied the knot in the strip used for the ears. We had a variety of silk roses, ribbons and ruffles ready to add for clothing.
The tin baskets were originally made at Christmas, when I let the world know I Served Cold Cereal for our Company Holiday Party. They were easily repurposed for Easter. A little grass, a few wooden bunnies and instant festivity. The tin baskets may show up on the table tomorrow with colored eggs, or veggies tucked into them. Ya’ just never know.
But, thanks to my habit of blog hopping, I now have adorable bunnies to greet my holiday guests.
