As I explained above, this project starts with a wooden Easter bunny cutout from Twin Knobs Woodworks. This piece is cut thick, so it can sit on it’s own and be used anywhere in your home.
To begin, I used a brown chalk-style paint and water wipes to give the entire bunny a stained look. I also used a small detail brush to give some of the smaller edges proper coverage.
When “staining” with paint and water wipes, you’ll want to load a bit of paint onto the wipe and then rub it onto the surface. You’re looking for coverage similar to a stain, so you’ll be able to see the wood grain.
Now let’s paint all of the detail pieces.
First, I did the feet with the same paint and water wipe technique as I used on the bunny’s body.
Then, I used a makeup sponge and the color Soft Pink to paint the paw pad detail pieces and bunny’s nose.
Next up, I painted the eyes with Caviar and the bunny’s glasses with The Gulf.
Once all of those pieces were painted, I moved onto adding some details using Sharpies. I used a thinner and a thicker Sharpie depending on what I needed to create the details.
Then, I used a small detail brush and more of the Soft Pink paint to add details to the bunny’s ears.
Finally, it was time to glue everything in place.
I like to use a medium instant adhesive, but you can use whatever adhesive you like best.
Time for a few more details!
This is an example of another way you could add details to the bunny using a Chalk Couture Transfer. Unfortunately, this transfer is out of stock, but check back HERE in case it becomes available again.
This was my first finished product.
Don’t they look cute together!
Be sure to use whatever paint colors you like best when creating your own bunny. Depending on the bunny color, you may use white or black sharpie or paint pen.
Although the initial finished bunny was adorable, I like to be a little extra, so I added a few more embellishments.
A simple twine and button bow tie makes him extra adorable!
