Let’s make an Easter Bunny Door Hanger using the Bunny Door Hanger!
This Easter Bunny door hanger project starts with the Sitting Shiplap Bunny cutout from Twin Knobs Woodworks. You can get this cutout HERE.
I painted the surface of the bunny with Silk All-In-One Mineral Paint in the color Salt Water. I am in love with this new line…no topcoat needed! This product will be available online starting March 3, 2021. Until then, visit your local Dixie Belle Retailer for purchase.
Before I started painting, I drilled holes in the bunnies ears for hanging.
Paint the surface of the bunny with two coats of paint and let dry.
PRO TIP: Since this cutout is laser cut, you can touch up your edges with a sharpie!
To finish off the door hanger, I added a ribbon bow that matches my Spring décor.
Attach your bow with a thin wired ribbon or twine. I try to avoid hot glue as it tends to melt here in the south.
Finally, add some twine to hang your bunny with.
So simple and super adorable!
Let’s make an Easter Bunny Door Hanger using the Bunny Door Hanger with Flowers!
This is the wooden Easter Bunny cutout I started with for this door hanger. It comes with three pieces that you paint and then glue together to make a 3D effect. You can purchase it HERE.
To begin, I painted the entire bunny portion of the cutout with Silk All-In-One Mineral Paint in the color Salt Water.
I used a larger paint brush for this part of the project.
You can see that I avoided painting the leaves on this portion of the project since they will be covered when we add the other cutout layers at the end.
Next, use the color Kudzu by Dixie Belle Chalk Paint to paint the leaves. Then, mix some of the Kudzu with the color Cotton to create a lighter color that can be used to add dimension to the leaves.
You can paint the leaves with a small paint brush or with a makeup sponge. Don’t worry about painting the bow portion of this part of the cutout as it will be covered by another painted portion of the cutout in the end.
Next, paint the bow with the color Flamingo.
Once you have painted the entire bow with Flamingo, mix a bit of the color Cotton with some of the remaining Flamingo to create a lighter peachy color.
Add that lighter peachy color to the center portions of the bow to give it a bit of dimension.
Let all of your pieces dry.
Finally, glue everything together with an adhesive like Gorilla Super Glue.
Here’s the finished product! Feel free to use whatever colors you’d like to paint your bunny.
