Bunny Carrot Garden

I realize that I have not posted a single Easter-y item this year... So here goes!


My boys discovered a basket full of tiny little stuffed animals that I'd collected over the years. Quite frankly, I had forgotten about them -- but they have provided hours of entertainment for everyone this week! In the basket were a few tiny stuffed bunnies. Where there are bunnies, of course there is a need for carrots -- lots of them! There were two little stuffed carrots I'd made last year in our Easter decor box -- but certainly not enough to go around. So I made more!


Here's the Single Photo Carrot Tutorial! They are super easy and I whipped up a pile of them from some flannel scraps in no time.


The little bunnies are very impressed, and have taken to hoarding them in their tiny Easter baskets...


...after picking them from the "couch cushion garden," of course!

(Sorry for the bad photo -- but it just had to be included! Have you ever tried to take photos on a dark leather couch? Not easy!)

How fun!! I love the couch cushion garden. A perfect place to plant and harvest (and plant and harvest) bunny carrots.

I LOVE the couch cushion garden. I need to make some of these carrots. Then again, they would need a bunny to go with them......

This is brilliant! I also love that the carrots can be picked from the sofa - it adds a whole other element to their playing. Now I just need a brown sofa. Oh, and some children! Loving your blog :)

The couch cushion garden is ingenious! Oh, and the carrot tutorial summed up in one picture is very handy, too! Thanks for sharing!

I'm gonna make these little carrots only because it looks like the will fit perfect in the cushions of our couch just like yours! Must easier to fit in there than a plastic egg. love it!
