Can you not help but to smile when you see Easter bunny decor? Even though I no longer have little ones who enjoy all things about bunnies and eggs and the whimsical parts of Easter, that doesn’t mean I’ve stopped decorating with bunnies! This is an easy decor piece that can be put together in about an hour.
I purchased an unpainted crate from Jo-Ann Fabrics and Crafts to use for holding the eggs.
This wooden bunny was also purchased at Jo-Ann.
I used chalk paint to give them both a base color that I knew I wanted to have show through the next coat of paint.
After the green paint was dry, I covered the crate with white chalk paint and used my palm sander to distress it. I added some brown shredded Easter grass as filler and topped it with craft moss.
I gave the same paint and distressing job to the bunny. I wanted the green paint to show through to give it a worn look. Using just a little black paint, I added his eyes on each side.
For his tail, I used soft yarn to make a pom pom and then hot glued it in place.
Using a small piece of ribbon, I tied a bow and then hot glued it to the bunny.
The bunny is hot glued to the front of the crate.
I tossed pastel, speckled eggs into the crate. I tried out several different spots for it. I liked having it on the floor, but I was a little worried that Gloria’s dog, George, might decide that the eggs were toys.
I moved it to sit on top of my wine rack in my breakfast nook area. I added some candy dishes with colorful Easter candy next to it.
Using a coupons kept the cost for the crate and the bunny at around $6.00. I already had all other items used on hand.
From start to finish, including the time allowed for the coats of paint to dry, I finished this in about an hour. It’s such a simple little project, but I think it turned out adorably.
