We have been doing a lot of crafts here at The Shabby Tree using socks. My mind seems to be on Spring and Easter and I just found a way to create a quick and easy bunny using one sock. There are many ways to create a sock bunny and we created one last year but I am going to show you another way right now.
The supplies I will be using are:
1. One long crew sock (you find these in the Dollar Tree and in Walmart)
2. Surebonder hot glue
5. Polyester fiberfill
6. Paint (pink, black, brown and buttermilk)
7. Paint brush
8. One large pom pom
The first step is to cut the toe end of the sock off. You will want to cut about 3 to 4 inches off.
The next step is to fill the toe end with the gravel. Once you have it filled with the gravel you will want to glue it shut.
I then cut the remaining piece of sock to be about 10 inches long.
I cut a slit down the center of the sock about 3 inches long.
The top two sections where you cut the slit will form the ears to your bunny. Turn the sock inside out and glue the ears shut. You will want to be sure to glue your ears in the shape that you will want them.
Once your ears are glued together then turn the sock back out to the right side.
Lightly stuff the ears and then the rest of the bunny.
You will want to add the small sock of gravel up into the bottom part of your bunny. This is going to add weight to the bunny and allow it to stand up.
You will need to glue the bottom of the bunny shut. You can glue this shut any way you want.
I glued the sides in and then folded over the other sides.
Once you have the bunny stuffed and glued shut it is time to paint your bunny.
I am using a buttermilk colored paint by Deco Art.
I then used a pink paint on the ears of the bunny.
Black for the eyes and a brown for the nose, whiskers and mouth.
I coffee stained a large white pom pom and glued it to the back for a tail.
I used a few small strips of ribbon to create a bow for the top of the head.
You can create these bunnies to be any color that you want. I hope you will have fun and give this a try.
