Easter Bunny Craft

by Chris on March 24, 2013

Well, after showing off a bunch of Easter decorations that I like, I figure I should probably make my own. I wouldn’t necessarily call your local news station over it, but it was a quick afternoon project that I’m quite happy with!

Bunny silhouette

My living room decor doesn’t necessarily call for “frilly”, so I wanted to make something that looked like Easter without looking like Easter. You pickin’ up what I’m layin’ down here?

Stained wood piece

After staining a piece of scrap wood and letting it dry, I covered the whole thing with painter’s tape.

Easter crafting

Using a bunny head template I cut out, I traced it onto the tape-covered wood.

After tracing it, I used a craft blade to cut around it. Instead of cutting the bunny out, I pulled all the excess tape around it. A reverse stencil! Ta. Da.

Bunny cut out

The fun part? Paint, paint, paint. Before it dries too much, peel the tape up, and you’re left with a little ol’ bunny head.

It blends in really well with the decor (love that), yet it’s festive. That’s what I call a craft success.

I’m definitely picking up what you’re laying down! This is right up my alley! Love it! Best part is, I have everything on hand! :)

CUTE! I love that it’s not the whole head but just the top and the ears. What fun!

I really enjoyed this DIY project. It’s not too girly or childish. It would be perfect for a stylish home that just wants to celebrate a bit of the Easter bunny. I love the stained wood, great tip! Thanks for posting.

This is so clever and so darling. I am all about the Easter decor that fits in to what is already around. So smart to do the reverse stencil. Love it, my dear.

Love this idea! Can definitely see doing this with a variety of other designs, too.
