With spring just around the corner, things will be blooming soon and little Peter Cottontail has begun to poke his nose from behind those bushes in the backyard.

As a Pinterest project inspired by the new season, this adorable bunny rabbit will be just the right touch for your holiday décor.

Make your own burlap bunny to hang at your home with Ali Conn Payne. The craft party will be held at the Shelby County Arts Council, Friday, Feb. 20 from 6-9 p.m.

Water and tea will be provided, but our Pinterest friends are welcome to bring a beverage and a snack to share.

The event includes all the supplies needed to complete the project and can be paid for in advance online.

Ali Conn Payne began hosting Pinterest projects out of her home several years ago.

When she and her craft-loving community outgrew her living room, they moved to a more central location at the Arts Council in Columbiana.

Once a month Ali will guide you through a lovely project that is both functional and delightful.

Come for a creative, fun evening out with the comfort of home and friends at an adult-only event.

There will be food, fellowship and definitely laughter while fellow Pinterest friends design something unique for their homes.
