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