Spring Decor with Bunnies and Peat Pots

My spring time decor began with the purchase of peat pots from Menard's.  

I didn't really decorate my peat pots.  I brushed on a little sealer to darken the pots and add just a bit of shine.  You could use poly or varnish.  Then I punched four sets of holes in the top sides of each pot.




I pulled the little black cubby shelf and a couple of faux plants out of my vignette making stashes.

I cut four lengths of jute about 11" long.  Then tied them in knots on each end.  I cut off the excess jute.  These will be the pot's handles.  Then I tore off a piece of paper towel and stuffed it into the pots to prop up my mini pots of faux greenery.

Then I stuffed Spanish moss in around the mini inner pot to fill up the peat pot.

My peat pots are nothing fancy, but nice and natural looking for "faux" greenery plants.

Then I painted the black bead board cubby with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in old white.

Next I added a piece of barn wood to the bottom of the shelf.  I didn't nail or glue it so it can be removed.

Then I dragged out these Target Smith and Hawkins' bunnies seen here from 2012.

The bunnies had a little paint missing from a couple summers outdoors but I sanded off more paint in spots to give them the appearance of age.  I placed more Spanish moss in a miniature bucket and added one of my styrofoam button eggs on top.

I set up my little bunny and peat pot vignette atop my "over the sink" shelf in the kitchen.
