It’s time for another craft de-stash challenge! This time, I’m sharing a Floral Decoupage Spring Bunny to to add to your Easter decor.

Floral Decoupage Spring Bunny

If you aren’t familiar with the craft de-stash challenge, it was created by Megan at C’mon Get Crafty to motivate all the craft supply hoarders to utilize supplies we already had in our stash to create something new! The rules are simple:
  1. Use items already in our craft stash.
  2. If needed, a $10 limit for additional supplies.

Floral Decoupage Spring Bunny

Supplies:

  • paper mache bunny
  • floral paper – Use a floral print napkin if you can find one you like
  • paint brush
  • Mod Podge
  • ribbon
  • paper flowers
  • chenille pipe cleaner
  • scissors
  • white acrylic paint
  • hot glue/glue gun
  • gold Sharpie pen (optional)

How to make a Floral Decoupage Spring Bunny:

The bunny I used for this craft de-stash challenge had a broken ear that was repaired with glue, so it made the perfect base for a decoupage craft. It’s been patiently sitting in my craft area for 2 years!  Poor thing waited a long time to be beautified. The only supplies I needed were floral paper and a package of coordinating paper flowers (under $5).

  • Give the paper mache bunny 2 coats of white acrylic paint.

Decoupage spring bunny

  • Tear the paper into small pieces.
  • Place a generous amount of Mod Podge on the bunny and some to the back of the paper.
  • Place the paper on the bunny and apply more Mod Podge on top.
  • Repeat these steps until the entire bunny is covered.
  • Optional – Do not decoupage over the inner ears if you would like to color them in with gold Sharpie pen.

Decorate Decoupage Spring Bunny

  • Glue flowers onto the back of the bunny.
  • Add ribbon around the neck and tie into a bow.
  • Wrap the tail with chenille pipe cleaner (optional).
  • Color the inside of the ears with gold Sharpie pen (optional).
