Steps

    Take the second pot and immediately attach the large rim to the previous one (the second pot is basically upside down on top of the first). This creates the bottom portion of the bunny.

    Paint the three pots. Also paint the top inside portion of the top terracotta pot. Let it dry (this doesn't take long). The picture shows the choice of a slightly off-white color instead of a bright white.

    While the paint is drying, start to cut out the body parts for the bunny. You'll need two ears, two arms, and two feet. Be creative with the paper you choose. An off-white paper and pink and white polka dots are demonstrated here. Ink the edges of the paper with a pink ink pad to give it a softer look. Draw in any fingernails or 'toenails' on the bunny.

    Add a ribbon bow-tie to the bunny if wished. This step is optional If you proceed with it, first attach the ribbon around the 'neck' of the bunny (where the two pots meet). Then create the bow-tie, by cutting the ribbon on diagonals and gluing them together. Then attach the bow-tie on top of the ribbon.
