 funny bunny

 

Entice customers to hop into your shop with this novelty design.

 

Design by Christina M. Burton, AIFD

 

The trend of creating animal forms with flowers has made a comeback, and this whimsical bunny will catch the eyes of all who hop into your shop during the spring season. As compact as it is clever, the design uses only one flower—a ruffly pink carnation—along with two types of foliages and several craft items. A simple square orange basket provides a vibrant accent to the pink materials.

  

This composition could be created in assembly-line fashion, with one person arranging the fresh materials and another gluing on the bunny’s ears, eyes, nose and whiskers.
