How to Make a Wooden Bunny Outdoor Easter Decoration
Enlarge the template to the size bunny you want. Our bunnies were each 30 inches tall.
After tracing the template onto a piece of 3/4 inch thick MDF board, my husband cut the bunny out using his jigsaw. He sanded the edges smooth and attached it to a diamond shape base by pre-drilling holes (to keep it from splitting) and then countersinking the screws. Then we gave the bunny a nice chocolate brown coat of spray paint.
Tips For Making A Chocolate Easter Bunny From Wood
- Enlarging a pattern is very easy to do if you have a projector. You can also get enlarged printouts for a reasonable price at some office supply stores.
- MDF (medium-density fiberboard) is great for this project because it cuts so cleanly, but you can use other kinds of wood.
- Your bunny will hold up better if you place in a spot where it won’t get a lot of rain or other weather exposure.
