Hip Hop Hooray! Easter’s On Its Way!
The Aqua Striped Bunny for Farmhouse Home Decor will make some BUNNY feel special. He is made from heavy duty scrap wood we had on hand. The wood had a lot of character and looked rustic so staining it seemed the perfect finishing touch. Keep reading for the details and pictures on how to make this Farmhouse Aqua Striped Bunny
Getting Started with Farmhouse Striped Bunny
It was easy to make a pattern for our Farmhouse Striped Bunny. The bunny shape was easy for my Mom to trace and cut out of wood we had on hand. We took down a horse fence so we have a stash. Mom “stained” the whole bunny with watered down brown acrylic craft paint. Next, I used painter’s tape to make the striped lines. My home primarily has shades of aqua and brown, so I wanted it to match.
Painting the Stripes
Chalk Couture teal paste was used to “stain” or “paint” the stripes. A Chalk Couture transfer was used to put on the words “Hoppy Easter”. I am no longer a Chalk Couture Independent Designer. The paste is not permanent until you seal it. So I sealed it with spray on clear acrylic spray.
Adding a Base
We were going to just use it as a porch leaner. But I asked Mom if she could put a base on it so it could stand anywhere in your home or outside your home. Ask and you shall have it with my Mom. She screwed the base onto the bunny and also glued it for good measure with E6000. This is one substantial bunny rabbit!
Finishing Up with the Base and Bow and Hoppy Easter
I made a bow with tails using aqua polka dot burlap ribbons, aqua lace, and even some dollar tree ribbon. BOWS are fun to make and and the finishing touch!

If Aqua is NOT your color, you could use pink, yellow, etc to make the stripes. You could even make the stripes look like ship lap. There are so many options with Easter Colors. Easter will be here before we know it.
