Pier One Inspired Easter Rabbit Centerpiece

I was looking through the Pier One sale catalog and saw the cutest bunny centerpiece. Love!



At almost $50 I knew it wasn't coming home with me! But oh my! It is so sweet. However, I knew I could make one for a whole lot less.

I already had a grapevine wreath and I have a large glass vase so I pulled those out to see if they would work together. Hmm, no the vase was too large. What else did I have? Oh yes, I have the Easter Bunny! He fit nicely inside the wreath!
*on a side note I have seen little rabbits like the ones Pier One used...I'm waiting for those to go on sale, then I will snatch up a couple to use at a later time.


I bought some Easter shredded paper grass, some Spring blooms, and plastic Easter eggs in shades of blues, greens, and yellow. All for under $10!

I added the shredded paper  inside the wreath, then the rabbit, then cut and added the Spring stems to the wreath, and lastly placed the eggs around the rabbit and put a couple of sprigs in his basket.

No, it isn't  a whole lot like Pier One's centerpiece but I took their idea and ran with what I had. And best of all, it cost me under $10!

I think my rabbit makes it look more Easter-y! What do you think?



What Easter decor have you been inspired to make more cheaply?

Happy Spring!

  3. So cute! The sprigs remind me of Bluebonnets, though not exact,...they just remind me.
    Should start seeing them lining the East Texas Highways soon.

    1. Hi Pat! Yeah, they have that bluebonnet shape, don't they? They are blooming here in Central Texas. Hope to see them near the farm soon!

  7. Not from nuttin', but your bunny kicks Pier One's Bunny's fuzzy little butt.

  9. You know what Cecilia, it is better than the Pier One! Much more personalised and ready for Easter. I'm still deciding on my Easter decor but I know chocolate will be the main feature :-)

    1. Chel, chocolate is always good! But with the pets, not a good option here. I do have a ceramic bunny painted to look like chocolate - I need to post pics of that vignette - it's at our city house.
      And thanks! I like mine better too! Have a wonderful week.
