I don’t know about you but when I get an idea to make something I tend to make a bunch. Especially if they are going out in the yard. I had an idea to make some lawn bunnies out of recycled plastic plates, bowls, lids and caps. All it took to turn these recycled elements into an adorable bunny family was some Testors spray paint and craft paint. These paints are available at Target stores as well as at the Testors web site.
First up I gathered together all sorts of plastic plates, bowls, lids and even an extra potting tray for my largest bunny body.
For the ears I used regular spoons, large spoons and two large oval plates.
The tail was a toilet bowl brush-NOT a recycled one though:) A new one from the dollar store.
The whiskers are zip ties and the noses are plastic bottle caps.
First up I hot glued everything together. The largest bunny has a center support of a scrap of wood.
Next I spray painted the large and medium bunnies with White Testors Gloss Craft paint.
The smallest bunny, the whiskers and the tail I spray painted with Testors Neon Pink spray paint.
I cut the inside bunny ear pieces out of a recycled plastic lid.
I sanded them a bit to help the Testors Craft paint in light pink stick nicely. This is what they looked like after the first coat. I did a second coat that gave them nice full coverage.
I wanted to dress up the littlest pink bunny with a bow but didn’t have something on hand so I used a pencil erasure, chap stick and cork to paint polka dots on a piece of white ribbon using a variety of colors of Testors Craft Paints.
I had so much fun making these cute little Easter bunnies to decorate my yard along with my super sized Easter Eggs. I bet you will have fun too making them in all sizes and colors!
Even my “squirrel kid” liked them! Hoppy Easter everyone!
