Peter Cottontail Ornaments

Here comes Peter Cottontail, hopping down the bunny trail.....hippity hoppity, happy Easter day!  Ahhh, those popular words sang by the late Gene Autry.  Does anyone else remember that song?  My mother would sing that song to us when we were little.  It's been such a long time since I've heard those fun childhood lyrics sung to me, but that song still resonates with me today.  It stirs up nostalgia, and makes me miss the carefree joy childhood brings.  Today's post, a tutorial for a simple ornament, was inspired by those lyrics.  I hope you enjoy.  

You will need:
Small rabbit ornaments
Curling ribbon
Tiny cotton balls
Hot glue gun and glue sticks

First, add a small cottonball right on the pre-existing tail of the ornament.

So cute!

Since the ornaments I used were actually salt and pepper shakers, the number of holes on each didn't match.  The salt shaker had two holes, whereas the pepper had three.  I decided to cover the third holes with a small pre-made bow which double as cutesy bunny whiskers.  I glued a bow right below the "eyes" of my bunny on the salt shaker.  For the pepper shakers, I beaded a small bit of glue right into the third hole. 

Place bow. 

Bead a small dot where the bow is tied on each so they don't become loose.

All set!  This is a very simple upgrade you can give an inexpensive ornament to make them a little fun!
