These tins were from our wedding 6 years ago and just couldn’t bear to get rid of them. This is going to be one of the easiest Easter crafts you have ever made for decorating or to give away as a gift.

I love to be able to make quick crafts sometimes. Especially when a lot of my projects are furniture makeovers and take they can time, especially if the piece needs some repairs.

How can I make the fabic stiff if I don’t have any fabric stiffner?

Here’s one way that you can make the fabric stifer. I love using Fusion Mineral Paint – Tough Coat to make fabric stiffer in my projects. And this all came about because I had no fabric stiffner left and my closest craft store is over an our away. It drys nice and clear and keeps what ever fabric you using nice and stiff for your creations.

Do you need to water the Tough Coat down?

You sure don’t!! It is the perfect consistancy to just paint straight on to your material. I like to use a 1″ brush when applying the tough coat. Just make sure that the material that you are using that the tough coat is nicely absorbed.

Let the ears completely dry.

  1. They’re just sooooooooooooo adorable Sam. Seriously who wouldn’t want those cute little bunnies around for Easter and the rest of the year too? I need to see if I can find some Tough Coat. So many ideas floating around in my head right now

    1. Thank you so much, Michelle!! I have quite a few bunnies that stay out all year round and don’t see why these can’t lol!! I hope you have fun playing around with the tough coat!

  2. These bunny topiaries are the cutest Easter craft I saw this year. I cannot explain how much I love them Sam.

    When I go to the US I always buy fabric stiffener, they confiscated it saying my little bottle was too big. bahhh….
    But I do have tough coat, so thank you very very much for that tip.

    1. I’m so happy that you like them, Leanna!! Say whaaaat??? Really?? Gee you much have some serious border control over there! I’m glad I could help out with the tough coat though!!

  3. This is such a cute idea for Easter. I was decorating our house this weekend and need a little something on our fireplace mantel to complete the vignette. Thanks to you, I know exactly what I’m going to do!
    P.S. Thanks for the tough coat tip because I’m completely out of fabric stiffener.
