Back with another Easter decoration! DIY bunny and chicks! These guys turned out so stinking cute.

I saw this giant egg at HomeGoods. I mean giant as in 3 feet tall. It was pink with a layer of sparkle and huge bunny ears standing out. I fell in love and set my mind to create mini versions for my shelf. The bunny ears sticking out of the egg was just adorable.

And that’s how we got here. So lets grab supplies and hop to it!
