Welcome the spring season with fun Easter decorations that’s perfect for your home – the Moss Bunny Topiary!
Are you getting anxious for spring?
While the snow is still piling up, we’ll make it feel like spring as we add touches of spring decor to our homes.
With dollar store supplies you can quickly craft adorable moss bunny Easter decorations that will add a touch of whimsy to your home this spring!
What Supplies Will I Need to Make a Moss Bunny Topiary?
Most of the supplies for this Easter decoration are from the dollar store.
While the dollar store does carry moss, we decided it was more economical to get large bags from the craft store.
For this project we used 2 kinds of moss, green Spanish moss and sheet moss.
Supplies we used:
- hot glue
- green paint
- floral foam – Dollar Tree
- small clay pots – Dollar Tree
- 3-D bunny decor – Dollar Tree
- green Spanish moss
- sheet moss
- ribbon or trim – optional

How to Make Moss Bunny Topiary Easter Decorations
First, you’ll want to remove the tinsel wrapping on the 3-D bunny decor.
As you remove it, you will see that it comes apart into 2 pieces.
Next, you’ll paint the bunny frame green. This will ensure that the gray plastic frame show will not through the moss.
We found it quicker to give it a coat of green spray paint.
However, if you don’t have any, it can be painted with a green craft paint too.
Inserting Floral Foam
Next, we’ll want to fill the cavity of the bunny frame with floral foam.
First, press a piece of floral foam against the bunny frame.
Then, trim the floral foam with a knife.
Continue placing the foam into the bunny frame and trim as necessary.
Once the foam fits inside the bunny frame, attach the two sides together with hot glue.
Attach Moss to Bunny Frame for Easter Decorations
For this moss bunny topiary, we used two kids of moss, Spanish moss and sheet moss.
First we began to break them apart into small pieces.
We did find it easier to cut the Spanish moss with scissors.
You’ll want a 50/50 mix of the two mosses.
Now for the fun part, we’re ready to create the moss bunny topiary.
First we began by placing some of the moss mixture in a sheet pan.
Then we placed hot glue on about 1/2 of the front side of one of the bunny ears and pressed the ear into the moss mixture.
Pressing it firmly with a bunch of moss on the backside of the ear as well.
This will protect your fingers from getting burned.
Continue this process until both sides of each ear are covered with the moss.
Brush off any loose moss and check to see if there are any areas you still need to fill in.
Once the ears are completely covered with the moss, begin filling in the remainder of the bunny head.
We worked on one section at a time. Filling in a section with hot glue and pressing in the moss.
Once the entire bunny frame is covered with moss, once again check for sections that may need a little more moss.
It’s really starting to take shape now.
Isn’t this the cutest Easter decoration?
Speaking of cute, did you see Steph’s cute Easter/Spring garland she made last week?
It really dressed up her mantle for spring.

Shaping the Moss Bunny Topiary
Now it’s time to shape our moss bunny topiary.
Using kitchen sheers trim off any long pieces of moss, creating a groomed bunny topiary.
To make our clay pots looking aged, we applied a white wash.
To begin, thin down white paint with water until it was quite thin.
Then brush on the paint and dabbed it with a wet coffee filter.
Creating a soft and worn look to the pots.
Once the paint is dry insert the leftover floral foam and a small branch from the yard.
You can also use a dowel for the stem.
Insert the branch into the floral foam, then place the bunny head on the top.
Finally embellish the bunny topiary if you like.
We decided on a polka dot ribbon around the pot and a little bow for each topiary with scrap ribbon and trim.
I believe these moss bunny Easter decorations just scream spring!
The soft green with my black and white Easter decor looks so fresh.
To me they have that farmhouse feel.
