Simple Chippy Bunny for Easter

Usually I show you a step by step tutorial of what I'm making.  Today however, I was in such a zone that I finished the whole project in a few minutes and only got around to taking photos when I was finished. Trust me though, it's worth the read!

This was super easy so I can explain how it is done and at the bottom of this post you'll find a printable card with all the directions and supplies.

First, I found a piece of reclaimed wood in my workshop, it already had a coat of chalky paint on it. 

I drew a bunny shape with a flat bottom and cut it out on my saw.

I used an electric sander to sand around the bunny and across the top to get a chippy look. 

If your board is not painted, which it probably isn't, give it 2 coats of chalky paint, let it dry then sand it down.

Next, I found the top of a piece of picket fence

I used wood glue and my nail gun to attach the bunny to the picket fence piece.

If you don't have a nail gun you can use wood glue and hot glue for a good bond. 

All I had to do now was to decorate my bunny.

I added a gingham bow, a few pieces of moss, and a small decorative carrot with hot glue. 

My carrots and gingham ribbon came from Dollar Tree but you can find similar at Michaels

I think he is just the cutest and I'm adding him to my Etsy Shop right now!
