Some bunny loves you...
With Easter only a week away and having all our Spring orders shipped out and arriving to everyone this week. We can now focus on celebrating this week.
So we thought we would start with a post about one of our personal favorite Easter ornament designs... Our Swirly Bunny! He has been apart of our Easter/Spring collections for the past five years. You just can't celebrate Easter or Spring without thinking of bunnies. So when we decided to included a Spring collection into our Swirly family we worked on many different ideas for creating the perfect swirly bunny and the outcome was this swirling coil approach that won our hearts as well as many of yours.
We always enjoy swirling this bunny each year and switching up the colors and designs.
Enjoy the look at past designs!
Our bunny is made by creating many long coils in different lengths and thickness and piecing them together.
The bright and happy lime green background is a great backdrop for this white bunny complete with a basket full of eggs!
What has stayed consistent is the background shape for these ornaments. The size and curvy shape works so well with the bunny figure. Our bright yellow version was very popular.
For one collection, we added a chocolate bunny version design to accompany our white bunny.
Over the years our bunnies have been holding different spring and Easter imagery like eggs, flowers and carrots.

I know that this year Easter seems early, but remember back in 2008 when we celebrated Easter only 5 days after St. Patrick's Day! That was the year that inspired us to create this bunny holding a lucky shamrock. (This double holiday bunny was gone so fast that we never had a chance to take a good picture of the final piece)
By adding a ribbon bow tie to this bunny, it gave him that vintage touch.
