Plastic Canvas “Munching Bunnies” Craft – #TBCCrafters 17


Plastic Canvas “Munching Bunnies” Craft
(#TBCCrafters)

I figure with Easter, or Resurrection Celebration, just around the corner, that I would make some fun things for around the home or giving as gifts.  Even though the “bunnies” and “eggs” have nothing to do with what the day is truly about,  they are something that still happen in almost every city to celebrate this day.

There are stories of rabbits and eggs that are so popular, being about the talk of gods of fertility, and things of the Pagan sense.  However, I personally feel that the things associated with whatever holiday depend on the family that is involved.  Like our family during the halloween time, we say that they pumpkin is us, the guts (pulp) are our sin, and God comes in to remove that and put His light in us!

So for Easter, even though people think that the eggs and the rabbit are all what it is for, let’s turn it around for God’s glory!   If you go back to ancient Mesopotamia and Syria over three thousand years ago, the hare symbolized death and rebirth to these ancient people. Over time the associations made with hares shifted to rabbits, because they have many of the same characteristics.  So let’s see the bunnies as showing how Christ died for us, and rose again to allow us to have rebirth in heaven with Him!!  Take that Pagans!! 🙂

I hope you like it!! Have a blessed day, and please be sure to comment on, and share this #TBCCrafters craft on your social media channels – thanks!!

Plastic Canvas “Munching Bunnies” Craft


Materials/Tools Used:

  • Plastic Canvas 10-Count
  • Needle
  • Yarn
  • Googly Eyes
  • Small PomPoms
  • Felt
  • Glue Gun / Glue
  • Scissors
  • & Time!


Instructions:

I started by cutting out three pieces of about 15×15 stitch, 10-count plastic canvas.  Making sure to have the edges trimmed to have no leftovers of “pins” from where I cut.bunnies

Next, using a thin yarn, I did a “Continental Stitch” over the entire area and an “Overcast Stitch” along two (2) of the sides of two (2) of the pieces.  The third piece only needs the “Continental Stitch” and no “Overcast”.bunnies

After the pieces were finished, I attached the third piece to one of the open edges of the first piece using a “Whipstitch”, finishing it off with a knot at the end.bunnies

Now, I attached the other piece to the 3rd piece, again using a “Whipstitch”, making sure to have the edges that had been “Overcast” to be at the front (left side in pic).bunnies

When I had all of the pieces connected, I cut some “bunny” ears from a piece of thin felt.  Size and shape is completely up to you.bunnies

I attached the ears to the back of the 3rd piece using small dots from the hot glue gun.bunnies

 

I then added a small white pompom for the “tail” at the bottom.bunnies

Now using some craft string, I cut a few small pieces for whiskers.  Adding a dot of glue, I attached the whiskers and a mini pink pompom for his face, as well as some wiggly eyes.bunnies

When they were finished, I just used some little candy shaped like carrots that I found at the dollar store to let them enjoy their meal! 🙂
