Up-Cycled Frap Bottle Bunny

Don’t throw away those Starbucks frap bottles.  They are perfect to up-cycle into adorable Easter candy creations.  I filled this one up with mini marshmallows and created a bunny treat bottle that is quite adorable and super quick and easy to complete.


I cut white felt ears with pink centers and used Aleene’s Turbo Tacky Glue to attach them to the lid of the bottle.  I added buttons for eyes and the nose (Black Beauty from my Laura Kelly collection) with wire under the nose for whiskers.  I used a Sharpie marker to draw on the mouth.

To create a tail, I made a pom pom from white yarn and used the glue to stick it to the back.  So cute.

I made a super cute chick too.  To see how I did it, check out the post over on my blog here.

Happy Fifteen MINUTE Friday,



Easter Basket Ideas for Crafters

I’m always on the look-out for unique Easter basket ideas.  I have found that the easiest way to put together an Easter basket is to start with a theme and a basket with a button theme is sure make a sewer, or even a paper crafter,  hop up and down for joy. It’s also a great way to use up all those plastic eggs you’ve been saving!
