Decorate to Celebrate Easter Challenge: Bunny Suckers with Centerpiece

It is time for a new challenge over at Decorate to Celebrate.  The new challenge is to create a project for an Easter Party.  Be sure to head over to http://www.decoratetocelebrate.blogspot.com/ to check out all of the projects by the design team and enter your own project into the challenge.

I made a centerpiece with bunny rabbit suckers for Kaylee to take to school for the class Easter party.  I really love how this turned out.  I had the idea for a while and wasn't sure if it was going to come together as I imagined it, but I was so glad it did!
To make this, I started out with a styrofoam circle that was 12inches wide x 1inch high.  I covered it with green spraypaint to be the base.
Once that was dry, I used the Zooballoo Cartridge and some glossy green paper to cut out a grass border to go around the base.  I cut four of these at a size of 11.03inches wide x 5inches high and hot glued them around the edge. 
To make the bunnies, I used the Simply Charmed Cricut Cartridge and cut a front and back for them at a size of 2.88inches wide x 3.82inches high.  I added a small puff ball to the back for the tail.  For the front of them, I added google eyes and a small puff ball, drew in the mouth and used a pink color pencil to add the remaining details.  Once they were finished, I used a small dab of hot glue to attach the front and back to Tootsie Roll Pops.

I made 25 of the bunnies in all and then added them to the centerpiece by pushing the sticks into the styrofoam base.

To finish it off, I used a sample piece of vinyl siding from Lowes and a white dowel stick to make the sign.  The Happy Easter was cut using the font on the Batman Cartridge and pink vinyl.  I then went over it with a thin coat of Mod Podge to make sure the vinyl did not peel up.  Then, I had some small, flat backed carrots from Hobby Lobby that I glued to the about 6 of the bunnies hands.
