Those Pier 1 Bunnies…I Haz Them

If you haven’t seen them yet, you will. They’re making their way around blogland. I first saw them on Haley’s blog, The Autocrat, and then again at Jenn’s blog, Rook No. 17 ( where she may or may not be giving some of these away but you’ll have to go to see!) .
Had. To. Have. Them.
Pier 1 Bunies
I went to one Pier 1 only to find they hadn’t yet unpacked theirs and of course they were in the bottom box of a ceiling high stack of boxes and the stock people weren’t in yet. Curses. They called another store that had unpacked theirs. Had to wait a day. Not patient. I explained to the first store that craft bloggers are going to be looking for these and they better get busy. “Oh OK crazy craft lady…whatever you say”
Jenn did hers in painted clay pots that sit in a crate. I was going to copy then I remembered a container Mr. Chocolate had given me flowers in ( awwwww) that had three frosted glass short vases and sat in a crate like thing. Knew I saved it for a reason. I say that a lot but you really have not seen me on an episode of “Hoarders”.

Wanted it lighter and less contemporary so I slapped some white paint on it ( not perfectly…going for a shabby look) and then dry brushed it with taupe:

Much better I think. Filled each of the vases with Spanish Moss and floral foam and plopped the bunnies in. I bent the stems of the ones on the end so the middle bunny would be higher. I also tied pale yellow ribbon around their necks. Not too tight. I’m not mean!

I decided to keep things simple, but remembered I had a key I’d picked up in Michael’s dollar section ( now their $1.50 section grrrrr) so I tied that to one end of the crate with a torn piece of scrap muslin. Why? Dunno. Maybe the bunnies will get locked out and need a key.

Probably on a watch list at Pier 1 now.
