Easter Bunny

Back when Lily Munchkin was here in December, we made Valentine hearts and Easter bunnies. I spent my time making sure she finished her bunny, which she painted blue and dressed in a pink tutu, so I didn't get to finish my bunny until recently.

I started with a styrofoam egg for the body and ball for the head and covered both in paperclay. After the paperclay dried, I painted her a soft beige color and added pink in the ears and a little pink nose.

Then I coated her with pearl paint to give a nice opalescent sheen. I added the eyes and mouth with a dark gray permanent marker.

Now she needed some accessories. I added a ruffled crepe paper color, a tiny paper primrose, and a lace bow. Since I didn't think ahead and give her big floppy feet, she needed to stand on something, so I bought a paper mache box at Hobby Lobby and decorated it with vintage wallpaper, glitter, and trims.

I made Easter grass by inking a vintage book page, cutting into thin strips, and crinkling. The glittered eggs are from a craft pick from Michael's. I also tucked a few flowers here and there among the eggs.

I added a Happy Easter greeting to the box's base and she was ready for display.

Love, love, love your bunny! So sweet. Sounds like you had fun with your niece. Hope you had a great Easter. How is house stuff coming along?

PS- it is supposed to snow here this week. Six inches. Ugh. Good thing you come in the fall...
