A Year of Savings - 25 cent "chocolate" bunny


I wish I had taken a better before picture but I was not expecting this project to work.
Last year, I first saw gorgeous and expensive ceramic chocolate bunnies at a fancy shop on Main Street. Hobby Lobby had some lower cost ones but they did not seem nearly as cute to me. So I never got one.

After Easter, I found this sad paper mache bunny for 25 cents at the Salvation Army thrift. He had been crackle painted and really mistreated. The bottom kind of shows what he looked liked.


This morning, I spray painted him with some glossy brown from my stash and tied some clearance ribbon around his neck. I think he looks so cute and is just what I had in mind, but never thought it would turn out so good.


  1. Wow, that looks really good mom. When you were telling me about it I didn't think it would look that good. Way to save $39.75. :)

  2. I like it alot. Isn't it great when something turns out good when we don't expect it? Good Job!

  3. Thanks for visiting my blog. I've enjoyed reading through your posts. I have a 21 year old daughter and I love it when we color our hair together.

    I'm not much of a sewer but those little coasters look nice (and easy to make). I might borrow your idea to make some for Christmas gifts.

  4. He looks so cute! You did an amazing job!

  5. It looks great! Just like a chocolate rabbitt! Love, Esther

  6. I love him! I'm so glad you believed in him. :)

    Cheers! LA
