We up-cycled a galvanized metal planter and used it as the tub, to lower the cost even more. You could use anything that resembles a small tub.

Galvanized metal tubs and buckets from the dollar store also work well if it fits your bunny. You could even use a mixing bowl, or watering can.

How to make your 5 minute Easter centerpiece

  1. OPTIONAL STEP. – Add your design to the side of your metal oval tub-shaped container.

NOTE- This step adds time to the project and will no longer be under 5 minutes.

If you are adhering a design, such as an adhesive vinyl design, clean the surface with rubbing alcohol first and apply it according to instructions.

If using Waterslide paper, follow package instructions and seal with Modge Podge before putting together the centerpiece.

For kids- they could decorate the sides of the tub using sharpie markers or cut out easter designs.

For the Bunny Washtub, I made I used the “HELLO HONEY font. It is a free font that you can download for personal use from Dafont.com.

What is Dafont.com?

Dafont is a website loaded with fonts that you can download for free. You name it -they have it! Dafont is a great resource for fonts that you can use for your personal projects. Be sure to read the terms and conditions when using fonts by other creators.

I used Cricut Design Space and cut the design on my Cricut Maker, using removable vinyl. I like to use my containers for multiple uses, so I often use removable vinyl, so I can use the container later for another decor piece. If you are making yours as a gift, I recommend permanent adhesive and a sealant coat of Modge podge over the top of your design.

2. Tear a few pieces of quilt batting into smaller pieces for stuffing into the tub and set aside. Have one bigger piece set to the side as well, for later
