Bunny Bait

It has been well over a week since I last posted but we have had a very busy week full of violin/orchestra competitions and well my kids come first (his orchestra did very well by the way they scored 1's across the board).

Saw this cute little picture frame at Dollar Tree. Just knew that it would be perfect for something spring, just not black.

So I painted it leaf green (delta) and then distressed it. Added my cute little carrots that I cut out of 1/4" plywood and then added paper with mod podge. I cut my lettering out on my cricut and stuck them to a piece of burlap. It was missing a bunny so I sewed a tube of burlap together (fabric size 5X7 1/2"), sewed the bottom shut turned it right side out and dumped in some rice to weight it down and then stuffed in some batting. I then zig-zagged around the ears and then cut around my zig-zagging. Next I tied a piece of fabric around the ears to pull them in, painted on a little face and wha-la.
