- Caruso’s Vitamin Bottle emptied, washed and dried
- Bunny template printed - Download templates here
- 2 cups of all-purpose garden soil
- Hot glue gun*

Step 1: Remove Caruso’s label from bottle. Thoroughly wash and dry your Caruso’s vitamin bottle.
Step 2: Pour soil ¾ into bottle. Carefully place succulent into soil, adding remainder of the soil to secure succulent.
Step 3: Under adult supervision, carefully use scissors to cut out each bunny body part.
Step 4: With the help of an adult, carefully glue the ears to the back of the Caruso’s vitamin bottle. Next, glue eyes and nose to front of bottle.
