How to make an Easter bunny planter

Easter decorations are a marvelous mashup of pastels, cute animals, and egg motifs. This sweet Easter-themed mini-planter is both functional and beyond adorable. A crafter could whip up a few of these in an hour and have the Easter dinner tablescape completely taken care of. The planters would also add a springy touch to a bookshelf or kitchen counter. Imagine several of these filled with small cacti, air plants, or a delicate ivy variety.
A grouping of these pieces would be especially appealing when done in an array of Easter hues, from robin’s egg blue and pale yellow to blush pink and seafoam green. The small porcelain figurines that the diminutive terracotta pots sit atop could be rabbits, chicks, eggs, or spring flowers. This project results in an end product that is simultaneously endearing and nature-inspired.
