Let’s Get Started:
Start by taking an old wood framed picture and paint it white, this may take 2 coats. Use your heat gun or dyer to dry the paint.
Next you will take your Mod Podge and cover the inner of your frame. Then take your rice paper print and decoupage it on top of the Mod Podge. Finally cover the print with one last coat of Mod Podge to seal the Rice Paper into place.
Start by taking your wood bunny cut out and remove any strings, hangers and staples. Next trace out the bunny onto some tin tile.
Cut the traced shape out with an exacto knife or scissors.
Take your hot glue and adhere your tile cut out to the bunny shape, press firmly until glue has cooled.
Start by painting your cutout tile with your black chalk paint, making sure to get the sides. Next dry your paint with a heat gun or dryer.
For this next step you will do 2 coats of white chalk paint on top of your black paint. Then dry with your heat gun or dryer.
Take your dark wax, my favorite is Behr, and cover your whole cut out. Next you will wipe away the excess with a cloth or paper towel.
Finally take your sanding block and distress your piece, go as light or as heavy with the destress as you would like.
Grab your frame and do a coat of dark wax, wipe away any excess.
I used dollar store Jenga blocks for this next part. Take your blocks and glue them to the back of your cut out, then glue the cutout to your frame, press and hold down firmly until the glue has cooled.
For this step I wanted to have a little bling, so I coated my cutout in a layer of Mod Podge then a heavy coat of Diamond Dust. (Make sure when you are adding the Diamond Dust that your Mod Podge is sticky)
For the Final Steps I used Jute rope, a white feathered boa, and some bling from Dazzled Bling
Take your Jute rope and hot glue it around the inner frame. (This helps cover any imperfections around the edging, and also covers where the Decoupage did not quite meet the frame)
Next, taking your boa, build up your tail with the hot glue. You can do this laying it on top of itself.
Make it your own with bling accents. I used a bow from Dazzled Bling on the cutout and a few pieces on the corners of the frame.
Creating this sweet Easter Bunny Décor with you was so much fun. I would love to see your take on this project. Make sure to tag me in your re-creations so that I can see them.
