Start by warming the Fimo in your hand.
Begin with green color. Make a ball, roll it out and press the lid firmly onto it. Make sure clay adheres to the entire surface of the lid and use the plastic knife to cut the excess of clay. Grass base is ready!
Make a brown ball then gently flatten and shape into a circle. Put it in the middle of the lid and press down gently. This is the rabbit hole.
Use pieces of green Fimo to create grass leaves and decorate the rabbit hole. You can use a knife with a serrated end and a toothpick.
Prepare 5 balls with silver Fimo (1 large, 2 medium and 2 small). From medium-sized balls do paws and attach it to the edge of the hole. With small beads make cylinder and flatten them, then stick white Fimo in the middle (rabbits ear). Put the biggest ball on paws. Then attach the ears.
Make 2 small hollows in the middle of the rabbit face and fill them with 2 white balls. Do not forget the pupils, nose and mouth. You can now do the eyebrows.
From yellow Fimo do two eggs and decorate them with pink and blue dots. Place the eggs on the back of a rabbit. Now you can bake your rabbit at 130 degrees (30 minutes).
