Follow Along Step-by-Step:

  1. Paint the bottom portion (not the rim) of three the terra cotta pots with pastel acrylic paint (whatever colors you would like) and allow to dry.
  2. Next, paint the rims of all of the pots in white and allow to dry.
  3. Hot glue one wood bead to the rims of the three pots you didn’t paint the bases of for the “nose” of the bunny gnome.  Leave other 3 pots without a bead to use as the bottom of the gnome.
  4. Gently unroll 2-3 cotton balls for each gnome and shape ends of rolls into a point (or points) for the “beard.”
  5. Tuck half of the cotton into the pot without the nose, allowing the other half (with the point or points) to flow over the rim of the pot.
  6. Hot glue the pot with the nose to the bottom pot, along the rims of the pots.
  7. Cut a large triangle of felt and wrap it around the top pot to use as the hat.  Secure with hot glue.
  8. Cut 12 “bunny” ears out of white felt, along with 6 strips of pink satin ribbon.  Glue two ears together to make them sturdier. 
  9. Next, glue ribbon to the middle of the 6 ears.  Then glue ears to the front of the hats.
