How Can I Decorate with a DIY Wooden Bunny?
There are so many fun ways you can decorate with DIY wooden bunnies. You can use them in table centerpieces, in planters, on bookcases and placed in candy dishes. At the end of this post I'm going to show you five fun ways to create Easter décor with your adorable wood bunnies so stay tuned!
Step 2: Glue the Wooden Balls Together
This step is simple but forewarning – when the glue adheres the knobs together it holds in place quickly. For my bunny I use natural wood, meaning it's unfinished.
Using your hot glue gun, glue the bottom of the smaller wooden ball to the top of the larger wooden ball. Hold it in place for a few seconds to make sure it is secure.
Step 3: Cut the Curved Popsicle Stick
Next, cut the curved popsicle stick in half. These will be two ears for each bunny.
Step 4: Hot Glue Ears
Follow by applying a dot of hot glue where you cut the popsicle stick. Then adhere the glued stick to the back of the small knob slight angled outward. Repeat this step with the other stick but lean the ear slightly outward in the other direction.
Just like when gluing the knobs together, hold the ears in place for a few seconds until they are good and secure.
Now you have your ear shapes.
That's it! You've got a wood bunny!
You can leave it natural or decorate it with paint. You could use white paint on the body and then give it a face and maybe some pink felt on the bunny ears and a little pink nose, or you could paint it pretty pastel colors.
The options are endless!
