Drill holes for the ears about 1/2 inch apart at top of egg. Wipe clean.
Paint the entire egg white or beige, paint top and sides of heart. Allow to dry.
While egg is drying trace and cut bunny ears from material. See printout.
Paint a second layer of white or beige on the top 1/2 of the egg and apply a 2nd coat to heart top and sides.
Practice painting faces while 2nd coat is drying. (See video and print out)
Paint bottom of heart and finish the edges.
Paint the bottom 1/2-3/4 of egg with your clothing color (we chose aqua). Allow to dry.
Apply second coat if needed.
Paint the face you have chosen- refer to print out and video for ideas– remember use your imagination.
Add accents to clothing- i.e. pockets, hearts, buttons, suspenders, ribbons, etc… Allow to dry.
Apply flecking if desired.- See video
Allow to dry COMPLETELY.
Spray with sealant. I prefer to seal all my crafts with either an indoor/outdoor non-yellowing sealant. It protects them from scratching, moisture, sun, etc…
When sealant is dry, glue bottom of egg to painted heart to create feet.
Insert ears by adding glue to ear hole and using toothpick to push bottom edge of ear in- be certain to “fold” ear so that it rounds towards the front. See video for more details if needed.
Glue on tail and bunny is ready to go!
