Mini Bunny Silhouettes & Cloches

March 21, 2013
One of my first blog posts last year to garner some attention (and get featured on Tatertots and Jello) was "Easter Silhouettes and a Mini Cloche".

This year I am bringing back the Easter silhouette idea with a few changes.  After seeing the bunny silhouette runner on Eclectically Vintage with the cute pom pom tails,

And the adorable bunny silhouette napkins at Sophisticated Yellow,

I knew my little bunny silhouettes needed a pom pom tail. 

Last year I had spray painted three little metal cheap frames with white spray paint and mod podged burlap onto the frame's cardboard backing.

Then I painted some Dollar Tree foam stickers black with black acrylic craft paint.  (Last year I used spray paint)  I used tacky glue to add the pom pom.

So one little frame and bunny silhouette went into a clear glass jar with Sixlets and shredded brown paper.

One went into my glass votive repurposed "cloche" with spool top,

And the last one went into a Pottery Barn cupcake display cloche.

I also added a burlap sack with pink faux branches.

I think the tail makes a difference!
