Repurposed Lamp Bunny Figurine

Spring and Easter are still a while away but if you're a maker you might be ready to start creating! This little bunny was so fun to make using repurposed lamp parts...

I began with a few pieces of an old lamp I found on the side of the road.

The back story on the pretty lamps I found is not so pretty... I plugged one in and blew out the power in half my house and it cost me more than brand new lamps! 

Needless to say, the lamps were disassembled for a project just like this one!

I glued the pieces together, except the salt shaker top,  using Super Glue Gel.

I primed the pieces with a spray primer.

Next, I cut ears from painter's cloth.

Painter's cloth is my go-to fabric for many of my easy DIY projects.

I used hot glue around the edges of the bunny ears then added a piece of rebar wire so the ears would stand up straight. 

I then stuffed the ears with pillow stuffing.

The 2 ears were glued together at the base with hot glue. 

No-sew projects are easy to make, I've made so many recently!

I needed to close off the top of the hole in the lamp parts once I hot glued the ears inside so I used a salt shaker top to seal the ears in place.

I love just digging in the parts bin and finding pieces that work!

Next, I painted the bunny with Fusion Mineral Paint in Raw Silk.

The color Raw Silk was similar to the color of the painter's cloth bunny ears. 

When the paint dried I tied a simple bow around the top of the bunny.

I think he is just adorable and not too much!

I love the neutral look and the simple suggestion of an Easter bunny!

In case you're missing a face, then by all means add one with a thin Sharpie marker!
