how to make this "bunny butt" hobby lobby dupe

When I saw this adorable bunny ears bucket at Hobby Lobby, I knew it must be duped! But, as you can tell, I decided to take things in a different direction. I used Dollar Tree’s bunny butt on a stick to add a funny kick to this bunny ears greenery. Follow along for the process!



  • Small metal bucket (found in most craft stores)
  • Plaid ribbon
  • Floral foam
  • Hot glue
  • Boxwood (or any green floral picks)
  • Scissors
  • Bunny butt on a stick (from Dollar Tree)
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Spanish Moss
  • White car rag
  • Wood skewers
  • Pink felt
Adding a bow to an empty tin bucket

Step 1: add ribbon to bucket

I started by applying the bow to the bucket first with hot glue and wrapped ribbon (from Walmart) around it too since it would be much harder to add later.

Step 2: fill bucket and create ears

Before you add your ears, fill the bucket with Spanish moss and add in your greenery. The ears and “bunny butt” are supposed to be the final touches. I created bunny ears by taking 4 white pipe cleaners (2 for each ear) and I wrapped one pipe cleaner with another to make them extra strong. Once they were wrapped around, I bent them in half and then twisted the bottoms of the pipe cleaners together so they wouldn’t fall apart.

Step 3: add cloth to ears and secure with wooden skewer

I used hot glue and a car rag from Dollar Tree to hot glue the rag around the edges of the pipe cleaners. Once the rag was secured to each ear, I used a wooden skewer and hot glue it to the bottom of the ears. The bunny ears were made with all materials from Dollar Tree.

Step 4: cut and add pink felt

Once the ears were done, I cut pink felt from a felt bunny garland to add as the insides of each bunny ear.
