If you are new to the Pink Salt Riot Blog and my tutorials, it would be worth taking a few minutes to look at why I think recycled DIY helps you live a more joyful life, and the basic tools and supplies I recommend for brand new DIYers.
After making a few of the regular topiaries at the beginning of the month I couldn’t resist making an extra adorable version for Easter! This bunny topiary is just like the others I shared, with a few simple (and cute!) alterations.
In general we try to live pretty liturgically – meaning that we try to celebrate and fast on the Church’s schedule and not according to the habits of our culture. I would not normally be one to share something so Easter-y during Holy Week, but I also wanted to give you time to execute this DIY if you want to debut your own bunny topiary by Sunday! If you’re looking for a great devotion for this Holy Week, try saying a short prayer for each leaf you glue on – it will definitely give you lots of time for meditation.
Here is the link to the step by step topiary making directions. You can follow them with a few changes.
The main difference is obviously the shape of the topiary form. I used two full sheets of newspaper to make a ball and then wrapped another full sheet around that to smooth the face and make the bunny ears. Then I secured it all with tape just like for a regular round one.
Then just proceed like normal, gluing the paper leaves all over until you’re done! This one did take a bit longer than my original but I am kind of obsessed with how cute it is.
How are you preparing your house and home for Easter? I am excited that my littles are both old enough to (somewhat) grasp the concept of actively looking for eggs and not just stumbling upon them!
