These a-DORK-able wooden bunnies with their long floppy ears and buck teeth for Easter are too cute!!
Step 1: Cut your 2x4x8 so that you have a 12 inch, a 10 inch and an 8 inch long piece of wood.
Step 2: Sand down all the edges until smooth.
Paint the blocks brown. Let dry, paint with crackle medium, only let dry about 20 minutes- following directions on crackle medium bottle.
Step 3: Now use cream paint and go over the crackle medium with a well loaded brush in one stroke, making sure NOT to touch the paint that you have added to the blocks.
Step 4: Allow the paint to dry. Take the basswood and draw out a rounded edged triangle, this will be the nose, you will need three.
Step 5: Sand then paint them with a couple coats of pink paint.
Step 6: Cut three pieces of black wire for each bunny. Cut at about 10 inches long. On both sides, zigzag the wire with hands, doing all three pieces at the same time. Give them a twist right in the middle to hold them in place.
Use pink chalk or a woman’s blush with the medium pompom to create ‘cheeks’ on the bunnies. Add a small rectangle out of the white felt with a thin cut up the middle about half way into the rectangle, these are the teeth. In the middle of those cheeks, glue your bunny whiskers, teeth and top with a pink nose.
Step 7: Use the same medium pompom to add black paint dots for eyes.
Then use a small pompom to add white paint dots to the cheeks, nose, and eyes.
Step 8: To create the ears. you will cut a 14×2 inch piece of fabric with the pinking scissors, rounding the ends. Tie a knot in the middle of the ears, then cut two oval pieces of pink gingham about 1.5×5 inches. Use a fabric glue to adhere the pink gingham to the cream fabric. Then use hot glue to glue the buttons and ears to the bunnies.
Step 9: Next is just to add ribbon and buttons to decorate your bunnies.
Step 10: Each bunny is different. Add the ribbon bow at the side of the ears or in the middle of them.
Or loop a bow around the middle of the bunny. Anyway you decorate them, they are gonna be cuties!
