How to Make a Neutral Shiplap Bunnies Decor
I started this absolutely adorable neutral Easter decor craft by removing the mesh screen from its wooden frame. Then, I glued the cardboard picture frame backing to the back of the frame.
Then, I flipped the wooden frame over and glued half wood beads around the front of the frame. Once all the beads were secured in place, I stained the frame and beads brown.
To stain the wood, I mixed some brown paint and water together in a small bowl and used a paintbrush to spread the mixture onto the frame and beads.
Then, I wiped the excess paint/water mixture off with a wet wipe. I used my heat gun to quickly dry the frame and beads, then brush the Waverly celery chalk paint over the brown stain.
Keep a light hand and you’ll be able to see the brown stain slightly showing through the pastel green paint.
Next, I dry brushed white paint across the cardboard picture frame backing. If you use regular cardboard, I would recommend painting it black before applying the white paint.
Shiplap Bunnies Craft Kit
Alright, next up I worked on the shiplap bunnies craft kit! I started by sanding each of the three bunnies with a sanding sponge to make sure they had a smooth surface.
Then, I stained each of the three shiplap bunnies with brown paint and water. Allow the brown stain to dry completely, then dry brush the grey acrylic paint vertically on each bunny.
Keep a light hand when applying the grey paint so you can see the brown stain showing through slightly. This gives you the rustic, distressed finish on the bunnies.
Once the grey paint was dry, I mixed a bit of Waverly ballet slipper paint (pink) with white paint to get a very light pastel pink and painted the ears on each of the bunnies.
Next, I tied little bow ties out of the black buffalo check ribbon and jute twine and glued them on the necks of each of my shiplap bunnies.
Lastly, I glued a small piece of greenery from underneath each of the bowties and glued each of the shiplap bunnies onto the framed sign.
