2 Disposable paint trays
2 ft wooden dowel
1 pastel ribbon

- 2. Paint Clay Pot – allow to dry for 2 hrs
- 3. Glue Styrofoam in pot
- 4. Push Painted Dowel into Styrofoam pot and other end in Styrofoam ball
- 5. Spread glue onto of Styrofoam in pot and push paper grass lightly on to hold in place
- 6. Place a small dab of glue on the back of your ribbon and press firmly against dowel
- 7. Place a toothpick onto Styrofoam ball and use that as your starting point, continuing out and around the ball in a circle pattern.
- 8. Once all toothpicks are in place, gently, push a peep onto each toothpick, you can make a pattern, design or even use all one color.
- 9. You now have a gorgeous ropeep tree.
If you don’t want to deal with the candy mess, You can Make the following using all the same material and steps:
Cotton Tail Tree
Exceptions to above:
Instead of Peeps, use crumpled pieces of pastel tissue paper
Follow steps 1-6
7. Wad each piece of crumpled tissue paper in between your fingers and lightly dip in glue and stick to Styrofoam ball
8. Continue all around the ball in as many colors as like like- allow to dry overnight
**If you want to make either project easier – let the kids color the dowels and instead of clay pots but the cute little tin pots.
Pastel construction paper
Crayons, pencils, markers
Take each piece of construction paper and pull together diagonally to simulate a cone
Tape down edges
Trim tops even
Allow kids to color, design and label their own Bunny Cones
Allow to dry
Cut Ribbon into 12-18″ pieces
Cut a small slit on each top side of cone and insert ribbon
Tie each end in a knot so it cannot come out (you just make the handle)
Stuff each Bunny Cone with Easter grass and hang on each kids bedroom door handle.
The Bunny will leave goodies before he gives Easter baskets next week.
These have long been favorite in our home. Even our grown children come back to get their own bunny cones.
