Hope you had a wonderful Sunday. The weather was beautiful here in Charleston, SC. My boyfriend and I went to church and later to Target to pick up a few things. I love Target but I will say this, they feel very expensive compared to many other places. Really think about your purchased and if you could find it more affordable somewhere else. We ended up getting a round white tablecloth, 2 blue soft mats for our laundry room, the book Brain of Fire, two small paper Rhinocerose (future craft), some ingredients to make spaghetti, etc. I did try on a few things but was not happy with the fit or the price so I did not get.
I did a new Easter DIY for yall! I saw this one somewhere and LOVED that I could paint a ceramic bunny to make it look like a Chocolate Easter Bunny!! They have bigger “chocolate” Easter bunnies at Michaels selling for a pretty good amount. Why not make them!
To make the Chocolate Easter Bunny craft above, here is what you will need:
1 glass candle stick (can purchase at Dollar Tree or Thrift Store)
Two bags of tiny small colored Easter eggs. (Mine came from Dollar Store)
Small Ceramic or Plastic Bunny (Mine came from Dollar Store)
Blue Paint (pictured above is yellow paint but I ended up using blue for eye color)
2 Small paint cups or something to hold your paint
Two small paint brushes
Tall Thin Glass Vase (Mine came from Dollar Store. Make sure your rabbit can fit in it 🙂 )
Gorilla Glue Gel or Glue Gun
Here is how to make it:
Apply Gorilla Glue or Glue Gun around rim of Candle
Place the candle stick upside down on the vase so that the top of candle stick, sticks to bottom of vase
Leave Vase upside down to dry. You can start painting your rabbit now.
Before painting your little rabbit, there are a few things you need to do. Cut off his ribbon:
Then using the pointed side of our scissors, slip them in hook and gently pull up. This took a minute but hook on rabbits head DID come off. You only need to worry about this if you got the ceramic rabbit from the dollar store.
Use sponge brush to start painting rabbit brown (or if spray painting, take outside and spray paint).
Above is the brown I used. The color was actually called “Dark Chocolate” by Americana Gloss Enamel. I did two coats on my small bunny and touched him up with one of my small paint brushes.
I do not recommend painting over eyes. I tried to leave those the ceramic white so that the blue paint would really stand out. Yellow is also a good option! The blue I used is Craft Smart in Turquoise. I purchased both at Michaels.
While your bunny is drying your vase should also now be dry. Flip it over so that it is standing up. You can add some of your small Easter Eggs now! I used 1 and 1/2 bags to fill my vase. Use your hand to move eggs around until the colors are well combined.
When your rabbit is dry, sit him in the vase 🙂 Voila!! Super cute, affordable, and easy !
Below are a few of the supplies that may help you with this project! Click on them for more information. My goal is to never give you non affordable options. Glass vases go for quite a lot on Amazon as do glass candlesticks. I HIGHLY recommend you go to Dollar Tree or find a local thrift store. Normally, you can find these for around $1 a piece.
