Not only a great way to celebrate the coming of spring, also a great fix for those of us that may not have actual garden space! These bunny planters can be made out of one piece of pine board and come together in absolutely no time.
1’x12’x6’ Pine board
Screwdriver and screws
Piece of paper
White paint (optional)
And of course you’ll need a half-round planter
Cut two ear shapes out of paper. Tape them to your board and then lay the dinner plate over them and trace for the head. Move the plate down and to the side, overlapping the bottom of the head slightly, and trace a 1/4 circle for the shoulder. Slide the plate to the other side and repeat for the other shoulder. Cut out the shape using a jigsaw.
On the other end of the board, cut off the bottom 12” so you have a separate square piece.
Give the edges a quick sanding if you’ve got any rough spots. At this point, if you want to paint Mr. Bunny, feel free. I used a bit of white paint watered down liberally and gave it a quick white wash.
Once dry, take square piece, draw a line down the middle and screw three screws in half way. Line up the line with the bottom of your bunny board and screw them the rest of the way in.
Stand the bunny up, screw in the cup hook, and your ready to hang your basket of spring!
