Wood You Like to Craft : Under My Umbrella Style

I'm loving the online WOOD YOU LIKE TO CRAFT group I'm involved in.  It's a online crafting group that anyone can be involved in.  Did you guys know if you make the project and link up (over at Sassy Sanctuary) you could win either a giftcard or craft kit just for making something cute?  Yep it's true.  Today I'm going to share my tutorial for how I made my cute little bunnies...

Will someone please copy my bunnies and make me feel special?!  Hop on over to Sassy Sanctuary and link up :)

A while back I did a tutorial for these distressed wood finials.  As I was sitting on my couch thinking about how I would put a spin on this project.  I found myself looking at these finials and could see cute little ears sticking out of them! (click the picture to see the tutorial on how to make the finials)

So that's exactly what I did!

I love, love, love them!!!  Here is how I put my own spin on Krystal's project.
I took the top pieces off of my already made finials.  If you would like the tutorial for how to make them click HERE.

I cut some ears out of 1/2 and 3/4 inch MDF.  Sand, paint and let dry.  I used burlap for my nose and inside of ears.

I used two different patterns for my ears.  Well actually three but the third was so ugly it won't be shown :)  Here is my pattern for the ears, nose and inside of ears.

I then Gorilla glued those cute little ears on!

Have some fun adding style with burlap!

I had my daughters vote on which ears they liked the best.  My oldest (she becomes a teenager on Sunday.  Eek!!) informed me that the ears are not perfectly straight.  My reply "Well...no bunny is perfect!"  She didn't appreciate my joke but I sure got a good laugh!

I like the chubby one!  The poor tall one was so tall he kept getting cut out of the pictures.  I might have to make him a little shorter!

Super easy and cute project. Some bunny loves you!!!


  1. What a cute idea! Love it!

  2. I really, really, really love yours! If I hadn't already started collecting/buying supplies once I saw the first one, I probably would've copied yours. Maybe that will be my Easter project next year. :)

  3. Hey lady! We gave you an award. Come check it out. rhinestonebeagle.blogspot.com
