Make a Peter Rabbit Scarecrow Prop in 7 Easy Steps

Peter Rabbit is a firm favourite when decorating a child’s nursery; and the popularity keeps growing. I have seen a huge interest in Peter Rabbit themed baby showers, christenings and first birthday parties recently…

If you want to add that special detail to your party, you can make the perfect blue jacket hanging amongst the vegetable patch.

I hosted an adorable Peter Rabbit themed baby shower and created my very own Mr McGregor’s garden. I created the garden by using a large wishing tree – where I asked guests to write their well wishes for the baby onto tags, and hang them onto branches.

I completed the overall look by adding a plant pot, watering can, foliage and of course a Peter Rabbit scarecrow prop that I am going to show you how to create today! 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 scarecrow prop you can follow these 7 easy step by step instructions:
