Spring and Easter Wood Craft - Bunny with Easter Eggs Wall Plaque

Welcome Easter with this cute Easter bunny sign for your door or walls. It is an easy project to saw out and if you are really persistent, it is also finished in a day. This particular project is made with country colors but you may of course want to use other colors to fit your own decor. Nevertheless, it is fun to make and the shapes are simple enough for novice scroll-sawers.

  orange, yellow, red and black

Instructions:

1. Print out the patterns to the size you need and trace them on the appropriate wood. The large egg shown here is about the size of a sheet of typing paper.
2. Saw the pieces out and sand the rough spots away. These have a rustical look and are therefore not so smooth.
3. Paint your large egg first white and when dry, dry brush tan on to the edges.
4. Paint your rabbit tan and when dry, drybrush dark brown on the edges.
5. Paint the eggs yellow, orange and red. When dry, drybrush the yellow eggs with orange, drybrush the red eggs with brown and drybrush the orange eggs with red.
6. Line up all of the pieces and sprinkle dark brown paint on them for a country look. Let all of the pieces dry.
7. Drill holes in the tops of the eggs and 2 holes in the center top of the large egg.
8. Tie a piece of raffia around the bunny’s neck.
9. Coil wire and attach 1 piece to each of the 3 eggs. Attach the other ends to the raffia so that the eggs are hanging from his neck. Try to make the wire different lengths.
10. Paint “Happy Easter” on the large egg with dark brown paint and let it dry. Make an eye using black paint. Dip an end of a paint brush in black paint and dot it onto the bunny. That way you have a perfect round eye. Let the paint dry.
11. Glue the prepared bunny onto the large egg.
12. Insert a longer piece of wire from the backside of the large egg. Pull a loop for hanging and twist the 2 loose ends together in front of the egg. Coil the ends.
