The Easter Bunny is coming and he’s worked up an appetite! Make this carrot themed Easter porch décor and be sure he stops by your house for a snack! Cute and simple to make, you’ll welcome the Easter Bunny in style!
Spring in North Texas is amazing! The temperatures haven’t reached pavement scorching triple digits yet, there is usually plenty of rain and the signs of new life after winter are everywhere; especially after this winter.
Seriously. I moved south to get away from a winter deep freeze. Texas had the last laugh this year though.
Everyone knows the Easter Bunny visits millions of homes each year to deliver candy and Easter baskets which means he must get awfully hungry as he’s moving about! That’s why this adorable Bunny Food Easter Décor is one of my favorite bunny decorations for Easter!
If you have kids, they will love being able to leave a “snack” for the Easter Bunny to grab as he passes your home! If you don’t have kids, this bunny décor will help bring the spring spirit to your home.
This bunny décor for Easter is one of my favorite Easter decoration ideas for a good reason. It’s super simple! You only need a few supplies to create a DIY home décor item you can use year after year!
As far as DIY home décor projects go, it’s one of the simplest I’ve ever had the pleasure of putting together! Once you give it a shot, I am positive you will agree.
Is This “Bunny Food” Porch Décor Reusable?
As I said earlier, yes it is with one exception. The carrot top is not. So each year, you’ll be able to reuse every part of your Easter porch décor provided you replace the carrot top.
And once it’s put together, it won’t be hard to change that out.
Once you make this bunny food décor, you’ll understand why I love it so much. It may seem complicated, but really, it’s incredibly easy to make!
It looks amazing on the front porch!
“Bunny Food” Easter Porch Decor
- 5-Gallon Bucket
- Long Weeds or River Oats
- 1 yard orange fabric
- 6-7 dozen plastic Easter eggs
- 1 4' tomato cage
- 2 Garden stakes
- 1 Green Flower Support Foams
- Floral Binding tape
- Dark green spray paint
- Brown Paper Grocery Bags
- 1 Rubber Band
- 1 Small Posterboard
- 1 Fine tipped paint marker
- Green Easter Grass
- Hot Glue Gun and Hot Glue
- Collect tall grass, river oats, or long weeds from your yard. You'll want them to be long as these will be the top of your carrot. Bind them with a rubber band around 4" from the bottom.
- Use the dark green spray paint to paint your tall grass on all sides. Set aside and allow them to dry fully.
- Next, grab a garden stake and the tomato cage. Flip the tomato cage over so the pointed end is at the top. Stick the garden stake down between the 3 points of the tomato cage and secure very well with the binding tape. This will be the top of your carrot so be sure to use a lot of tape.
- Spread the orange fabric out on the floor and smooth it out slightly. Place the tomato cage on the fabric around 10" from the top of the fabric. Starting at the widest part of the cage, wrap the orange fabric around, pull taut and secure with hot glue. Continue doing this down the rest of your carrot. Cut off any excess fabric at the bottom of your carrot only. Once you are finished attaching the fabric, you should have around 10" of extra fabric at the top of your carrot. Crumble newspaper and use this extra fabric to stuff the carrot. Once you've filled the carrot, place the bundle of river oats down into the newspaper. If they won't stand on their own, you may need to add more newspaper for support.
- Spread the sheer fabric out and place the bucket in the middle. Place the flower foam in the bottom of the bucket then lay the plastic eggs around the bucket.
- Place your carrot stake into the green flower foam and wrap it pretty well with brown grocery bags. This will give your carrot some extra support and keep it from being flimsy. Fill the bucket with more crumbled newspaper to give it a tiny bit more weight to it.
- Once you have the carrot in place, pull the sheer fabric very taut. You need it tight enough the eggs "crawl" up the sides of the bucket to cover it. Safety pin the fabric in place so it doesn't slide around. Cover the top of the fabric with green Easter grass and add a few more eggs to the top for another pop of color.
- Finally, use the paint marker to paint a small sign that says "Bunny Food" onto the piece of poster board. Allow it to fully dry then use a few dots of hot glue to attach it to the other garden stake. Once it's dry, add to your DIY Easter décor.
