How To Create A Peter Rabbit Scarecrow Prop For Your Themed Party In 7 Easy Steps

Peter Rabbit is a firm favourite for Mums-to-Be when decorating their child’s nursery; and the popularity keeps growing, what with the number of themed baby showers, christenings and first birthday parties popping up recently…

If you want to add that special detail to your Peter Rabbit theme, you can make his little blue coat hanging among the vegetable patch in Mr McGregor’s garden.

I hosted an adorable Peter Rabbit themed baby shower and created my very own Mr McGregor’s garden.

I wanted to put a twist on the traditional custom of a guest book; so I used a large wishing tree where I asked guests to write their well wishes onto tags and hang them onto the branches.

I completed the overall look of the garden with a plant pot, watering can, foliage and of course a Peter Rabbit scarecrow! It was a perfect way to provide lasting memories and link into the Peter Rabbit theme. You can check the baby shower out here.

If you want to create your very own Peter Rabbit coat scarecrow you can follow these 7 easy step by step instructions:
