Supplies you’ll need to create your own standing wooden Easter bunny set:
- Standing Wooden Easter Bunny Cutout
- Sitting Wooden Easter Bunny Cutout
- Fluff Dixie Belle Chalk paint
- Pure Ocean Dixie Belle Chalk Paint
- Kudzu Dixie Belle Chalk Paint
- OS Dixie Belle Paint Brush
- Tobacco Road Voodoo Gel
- Acrylic Paint Brush Set
- Makeup Sponges
- Gorilla Super Glue
To begin, paint the body of the Easter bunny with the color Fluff by Dixie Belle Chalk Paint. I used a larger brush for this portion of the project because of the size of the surface.
Be sure to avoid the leaf detail as you paint this portion of the project.
Use the same process, with a smaller brush, for the smaller bunny cutout.
Next, use a detail brush and the color Kudzu to paint the leaves that are attached to the bunny’s body. After I painted this part of the cutout I realized that it would be covered once assembled. You can go ahead and paint this part just in case, but it really isn’t necessary as long as everything is lined up properly when glued together.
Now, paint the leaves that are attached to the bow detail portion of the project.
To do this, I used a mix of the colors Kudzu and Fluff. This will add dimension to the project once all of the individual cutouts are glued together.
You can also use a makeup sponge to apply the paint to any of the smaller portions of this project.
Next, use the color Pure Ocean to paint the bows.
For this type of work, I like to use a makeup sponge to cover the surface with a layer of paint. Then, I’ll add details with a small brush. Feel free to add some dimension to your project by adding a bit of white paint as a highlight.
Next, paint the flowers with the color Fluff. Again, you can use a makeup sponge or brush for this part of the project.
Let’s assemble the base and add the final touches!
Before adding color to the base portion of the craft, you’ll need to glue the smaller top portion to the bottom. I did this using a bit of Gorilla Super Glue.
Once your base has been assembled, use Voodoo Gel Stain in the color Tobacco Road to paint the entire surface.
I apply this gel stain with a clean cloth. You’ll simply want to rub the stain into the wood and then wipe back any excess product.
Once all of the pieces are dry, use Gorilla Super Glue to assemble the bunnies.
Here’s a look at the larger bunny on it’s own. Just a note – the bunny slides into the base pretty tight, but was designed to come out so that the entire piece can be stored flat.
And here’s a look at the Easter bunny set! This is super adorable for Spring!!
