Here Comes Peter Cottontail

Here we are, again... Another Marvelous Monday at Shelly's Images. I love today's featured image, Peter. He reminds me of the song... Here Comes Peter Cottontail, from when I was a kid. If you love him as much as I do, then hop on over to Shelly's Store and you can can take him home, today only, for the special sale price!

For my project, I decided to do a fun Easter centerpiece. The bucket has styrofoam in the bottom, with easter grass on top. The sticks are wooden skishkabob skewers that I bought last summer, for grilling shishkabobs, and still had some lying around the house. I've colored the images with Promarkers, and attached them to the skewers with hot glue. The ribbon around the bucket is from Michael's. After adding my skewers to the bucket, I filled the bucket with candy! Yummy and so much fun to make!

I am entering this project in the following challenges:
