Everyone’s heard of The Tales of Peter Rabbit, the classic children’s book about a mischivieous and disobedient young rabbit, called Peter. Well, it may or may not come as a surprise that it’s made the jump from book to feature film, this month.
Peter Rabbit, the mischievous and adventurous hero who has captivated generations of readers, now takes on the starring role of his own irreverent, contemporary comedy with attitude. In the film, Peter’s feud with Mr. McGregor (Domhnall Gleeson) escalates to greater heights than ever before as they rival for the affections of the warm-hearted animal lover who lives next door (Rose Byrne). James Corden voices the character of Peter with playful spirit and wild charm, with Margot Robbie, Elizabeth Debicki, and Daisy Ridley performing the voice roles of the triplets, Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cottontail.
And to celebrate the theatre release of Peter Rabbit, we’ve created an adorable rabbit potted plant DIY.
- Construction paper
- Googley eyes
- Pom pom

Step 3: Glue bunny ears onto the inside of the flower pot.
4: Glue googley eyes and nose onto flower pot.
Step 5: Paint whiskers and mouth on flower pot.
6: Glue ribbon on top or bottom of flower pot.
Step 7: Glue pom pom (tail) on the back of flower pot.
