Spring Picket Fence...and a Bunny!

We got a foot of snow the other day....
The snowbanks are impressive...
And Spring is only 4 days away!
So, I guess we should get started on some Spring crafting!
But, before we get into it, let me welcome you to the Creative Craft Hop hosted by Sara from Birdz of a Feather. If you just came from Donna @ Modern on Monticello, welcome to the Cottage! At the bottom of this post I'll direct you to the next stop on this hop, but be sure to visit all of the other stops too for some amazing inspiration. They will all be listed.....on to today's project:
Here's what you'll need:
Start by making your fence with 8 paint sticks and some glue. I trimmed 2 of them as the cross pieces. After the glue dries, paint the fence white with your craft paint.
You used to be able to get paint sticks for free at the paint department in your local home improvement store, now they're not so readily given up (I think they're on to us!). But have no fear, you can buy paint sticks and they are very inexpensive.
While your paint is drying, cut out a bunny on chipboard.
I used my Cricut Maker. If you don't have a cutting machine, these Wood Bunny Cutouts will be just perfect!
Cover the front of the bunny with glue and place it on a piece of burlap.
Glue the edges and wrap the burlap around the back.
One burlap bunny!
I used my small pom maker to give him a tail and grabbed some ribbon for a bow.
I also cut a chipboard oval that I cut the bottom off of and painted to make a carrot that sticks out of the ground.
Add a little greenery to the top and glue it to the fence with some hot glue.
Next, take some felt and trace 6 carrot shapes.
Add some greenery and glue them to a piece of jute twine to make a banner for the fence.
Glue on the bunny...
...and take a look at the cuteness!
I decided not to give him an eye, but feel free to give yours one!
You can add a little loop to the back for hanging or just have it sit on a shelf.
Where will you put yours?
Remember, this is a blog hop so it's time to visit Leanna @ Pretty DIY Home. Once you've stopped by to see her, be sure to visit all of the others for more inspiration! Here's the list:
