Step 1. Take decorative grass (the one used in this example is pink to follow an Easter theme). Fill your Easter themed pail about 5/6 of the way full with decorative grass.

Step 2. Cut your floral foam to go on top of the grass. It should fit snugly in to the pail. You can use excess pieces of foam to fill extra space if needed. Use sticky clay to secure the foam to the pail’s wall if it seems to be fitting loosely.

Alternatively, you can purchase a circular shaped piece of foam and then cut it down to the required size. After doing this, place it in to the Easter bucket.

Step 3. Cover your floral foam with decorative grass, using floral pins to hold it in place if needed.

Step 4. Place the Rabbit plush toy at the back of the bucket. Note that if it isn’t sitting securely, you can use a skewer inserted in to the foam to hold it steady. Place the skewer behind the bunny and secure it with packing tape or hot glue.

You can also hold the plush toy in place by using floral pins over its legs and into the foam.
