Hello, dear friends.
I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful Easter holiday with family and friends. I know that I did.
My first craft project for the nursery has been completed and I'm super excited to share it with you!
Many of you already know that the nursery theme is Peter Rabbit/Beatrix Potter and all things bunnies.
Decoupage Bunny ~
I started out with this ceramic bunny that I found at Tuesday Morning for 7$.
I've actually been looking for an unfinished bunny since last Easter when my cousin gave me this whole idea.
I used matte Modge Podge, a foam brush, a tray, and some damp cloths for this project. Also, my four free library books for the book pages ( a gift from my Dad).
I ripped up several book pages then soaked them in Modge Podge just before I would form them to the bunny, one piece at a time. Overlaying piece by piece to cover up any uncovered spots still showing through.
This was a really messy project as you can see!
Here's the bunny almost completed. Forming the paper to the ears, tail, and face were the hardest parts.
After I covered the whole bunny with the book pages I then brushed on a layer of the Matte Modge Podge over the entire thing and let it dry for about thirty minutes.
The off white bow and the eyes are the final touch! I had the ribbon on hand (from the dollar store) and the eyes were a last minute purchase (a little over a dollar for the package of beads).
I just love how the bunny turned out! I have to admit, I was a bit apprehensive about how I would like it once completed.
I think the splashes of spring colors from the book pages will really stand out in Olivia's neutral colored nursery.
I am so excited that my husband is going to start painting the nursery tomorrow! I will soon be able to start putting these items in the room!
Please feel free to ask any questions if there's anything that I was unclear about in this little tutorial.
Have a wonderful day!
