Easter Bunny Wood Art

by Laura Carrozza, Apr 10 2017

Easter is one of my favorite holidays, simply because my mom always send me a care package from New Jersey to Atlanta with my absolute FAVORITE jelly beans. My grandma used to put these very same jelly beans in my basket as a kid and since I can't find these amazing candies in Atlanta, my wonderful mom has continued the tradition by shipping them to me. Aren't moms the best?!  

So to get excited about the Easter Bunny visiting via snail mail, I decided I needed new festive decorations. I had some extra wood lying around and liked the idea of rustic wood art, so I put the two together to make this adorable piece!

This is what you'll need:

  • 2x4 wood scraps or a pallet
  • Drill
  • Screws
  • Paint (any color)
  • Paint brush
  • Image of a bunny
  • Large pom-pom
  • Hot glue gun

 

Step One:

Lay your pieces of wood out and measure how big you want your pieces to be. My finished piece stands at 13x16 inches. Carefully cut your pieces with a miter saw. If you don't have a miter saw, most home improvement stores will happily cut a 2x4 into as many pieces that you need, at no additional cost.

Step Two:

Lay your pieces down and then lay two pieces on top and to each side to anchor the front down. You will then take your drill and screws and secure the backing to each 2x4 piece of wood.

Step Three:

Print an image of a bunny to fit the size of your wood plaque. I did an image search online and had to enlarge the image to the size I wanted. Cut out the bunny and add tape to the back and secure it to the wood. Gently paint over the bunny using small amounts of paint at time to create the bunny outline. After you're finished painting, allow the paint to dry for about 5 minutes and then remove the paper bunny cut out. Allow to completely dry and attach the pom-pom with a hot glue gun before hanging!
