My cousin Steph was coming to visit with her girls last weekend so I hopped over to Pintrest to find an Easter DIY project we could do with all of the girls while they were here. I found these wooden bunnies and knew we had to try and make them. I didn’t have all of the supplies but I am the queen of improvising. I also adapted a few of the things to suit little people. Instead of a piece of wood I had canvases that we painted brown to start.
We then slapped on some crackle paste but you could just as easily use modelling paste or even joint compound to create a textured white layer over the brown. Make sure to let all layers dry thoroughly.
Here are the girls hard at work.
I took out my button and ribbon stash and we went to town accessorizing.
I used a little burlap and ribbon bow topped with a wooden button.
The ears were created with white muslin and pinking shears so there was no sewing necessary. Hot glued them to the top and added buttons to cover the glue.
We used felt for the nose and teeth. Then google eyes (which were self adhesive) to finish them off.
Pretty easy project for people of all ages.
It even kept my crazy little ginger’s attention enough to finish the entire thing.
