DIY Scrap Wood Easter Bunny

It is that time of year to start decorating for Easter, and I have a ton of wood scraps and reclaimed pallet wood; hence I started creating the DIY scrap wood Easter bunny. Making the DIY wood bunny was such a blast and adorable I had to make more and, of course, share how with my readers.

This easy DIY project I enjoyed with my daughter, Olivia, who is also a blogger. We made a video of these craft projects; you can see the video HERE. During our “staycation,” we have been crafting, sewing and cooking. We are trying to share a live event every day on my Facebook page to inspire everyone to have fun.

Our goal is to craft with items we have on hand; thus, we are using up-cycled items, re-cycled items, scrap wood, leftover paint, etc.

Reclaimed Wood Bunny Supplies

***For your convenience I have gathered all my favorite spring crafting must-haves HERE.

I asked Mr. Kippi at Home to cut some 2 x 4 wood scraps in 4″, 6″, and 8″ lengths. I used scrap wood for this project.

The first step is painting the wood scraps with white paint (I used chalk paint) that you have on hand.

After gathering my supplies, I started drawing on the bunny face by placing the face template over the painted woodblock and using a marker I filled in the face.

The unfinished wood bead can be painted, or you can use your marker and draw on the nose. I like it both ways; however, the hole in the wood bead provides the perfect place to thread some raffia whiskers through.

How to Make the Bunny’s Ears

To form the ear folds, we made a mini pleat in the center of the burlap ribbon and adding a dot of hot glue, then using finger protectors, pinching it together until it cools.

Olivia made the yarn pom-pom tails for the wooden bunnies, and you can see how she did with a pom-pom maker in this video. The block is a bunny sign of sorts, but with the adding dimensions of ears, nose, ribbon tie, and pom-pom tail, it turns into an adorable Easter bunny decoration.

Each of our bunnies got a little different look with different combinations of ribbon, lace, twine, button, whiskers, and noses.

DIY Split wood ball wreath is gorgeous and was super easy to create. I  made a funny video of us cutting the balls in half (don’t worry, you can order then already cut.)

I love these little things and can hardly wait to try making a couple! I think I especially love they have a cottontail so the back is cute as well. Thanks for sharing them over on the Farmhouse Friday LP. We are featuring them tomorrow! They've been pinned to multiple boards. Hope you link up again.

Girlfriend! Love it. So super cute. Biggest takeaway though are those silicone finger protectors. I'm still recovering from a horrible hot glue burn from three weeks ago! Thanks for sharing your crafty ideas!

Your bunny family is adorable. What a clever idea to use a stencil for the face. So many cute embellishments on them too!
