Bunny Topiaries

I walked into Pier 1 the other day, just to browse around and possibly get some inspiration or ideas.   My eyes went straight towards the Easter décor.  I spotted the cutest bunny topiaries for ONLY $3!! I picked up two of them! I knew exactly what I wanted to do.  I left Pier 1 and went to the dollar store. 

(Is the word "topiaries" really a word? My spell check says no!)

The $3 bunny.  Isn’t he cute? All fuzzy and fresh looking.

I purchased the blue pot from DT.
Already had some floral foam & moss on hand.   
Those came from DT too!  Quick, easy, cheap and super fabulous! 
My kind of décor!  He looks fabulous on my desk at work.

This arrangement sits on my dining room table.
I placed a bunny in the arrangement; kind of unexpected.
(I tried to change out the big arrangement for something
more “springy” but it wasn’t happening with my décor.)

The day I left Pier 1, I immediately called my Mom so she could
get in on the goods too!  Here is what she came up with.
The green balls came from WM for about $3 and more moss from DT.
I think it is so awesome that two people can take the same item
and create two totally different looks.  I am in love with her arrangement.

Check out these “mossy balls” that she made.
Styrofoam balls on clearance, cover with glue and 
add on DT moss.

Love them, but especially your mother's as I'm semi-obsessed with moss, LOL!

Love the bunny topiaries (yes, real spelling. Your spellcheck is having PMS.

Moss balls sounds dirty.

We don't have a Pier 1 nearby (good thing, because I would spend money there), but I'd think a wood bunny shape could be covered with the moss to make a similar effect? Or even with the fake grass sold for model trains. Awesome job!
