Yay, Easter is here! For a while I’ve been looking forward to decorating for this holiday. I have had an Easter bunny project on the back of my mind for months, haha.
I told my hubby about it and he gave me the idea of making Easter Love Bunnies. Not only is he an awesome husband but, he gives me great ideas all the time!
I thought this was a really great Easter decorating idea. Since there are all kinds of individual bunnies out there but, no “Love Bunnies”, I wanted to give it a try.
I used two 8×10 canvases as my backgrounds and picked up some colorful Spring-like scrapbooking paper at Michaels. While I was at Michaels, I grabbed a couple of very large pom pom balls for the bunny tails.
Step 1 – Cut Your Bunnies Out
I printed off a bunny silhouette and laid it over top of the scrapbooking paper. I know there are easier ways of doing this but, I just held both pieces of paper in front of my window and traced out the silhouette.
Side Note: If you have a Silhouette Cameo, you could cut the bunny with the machine. That’s what I’ll do next time ;)
Once I had my shape traced out, I used my X-acto knife to cut out the shape. Then I repeated this same step with my other bunny (just changing the direction of my bunny) so they will face each other.
Step 2 – Cut Your Grass
I used green cardstock as my grass and just free handed the grass with scissors as best as I could. — Now this is the kind of grass cutting I like to do, my hubby can stick with the real stuff!
Step 3 – Cut Your Banners
From my scrapbook paper, I just picked a couple patterns I liked and made one triangle then traced the rest out. Next, I used my X-acto knife to cut out the remaining triangles.
Step 4 – Add Your Love Bunny Materials to the Canvas
I covered the canvas with Mod Podge and put my grass down first. Then, laid my rabbits over that. Next, I added my banners to the tops of each canvas.
Once everything was dry I used some hot glue and added the cute little pom pom bunny tails.
Step 5 – Finishing Touches
I wanted the rabbits to shine as a set but, also be strong pieces alone. Finally, I put a top-coat layer of Mod Podge to seal everything in (which it did quite nicely).
I love how this Easter craft turned out! My little Easter “Love bunnies” are so adorable :)
I just got a Silhouette Cameo so doing a project like this in the future will be super easy and fast. A big thanks to the hubby for coming up with the idea…love ya!
