Welcome to the March Pinterest Challenge Blog Hop, hosted by My Pinterventures. The purpose of this Pinterest Challenge is to motivate all the participants of this hop (and you too) to not just pin, but to make it happen! So this month, I chose to create/make a 2×4 Scrap Wood Bunny. I have been thinking about my Easter decorations and decided I needed some new ones. I have lots of 2×4 my parents gave me and I’ve been trying to think of ways to use them. Creating a 2×4 Scrap Wood Bunny would be perfect! Plus I was looking for a project that I could make out of items I already had. I found these 2×4 Wooden Bunnies from Creative Me Inspired You that inspired me to try out this pin.

Before getting started on this adorable bunny, I wanted to share my challenge from last month Confetti Cake Batter Cookies. These cookies are scrumptious.
Pink Acrylic Paint
Black Acrylic Paint
Black Glitter Vinyl
Hot Glue Gun
For the Bunnies, I wanted to use supplies I had so my bunny will look a little different. I ended up painting the floral wire black for the whiskers because real life interrupted my craft life. I forgot it when I went to the craft store and my husband was waiting in the car so no way was he turning around to go back. Anyone else ever been in that situation? Plus I got the look that said I took to long (that’s why I usually go by myself), but you can’t rush creativity.
How I Created my 2×4 Scrap Wood Bunny:
For the 2×4 bunny body I used white paint. My bunny is 9 inches tall. I just used a scrap piece of 2×4 and had my husband cut a clean cut on the top and bottom.
For the nose I painted a wooden heart with Think Pink Acrylic Paint.
As I was making this, my son told me it needed a mouth so I made one in Cricut Design Space and cut it in the black glitter vinyl.
For the bunny ears, I chose the burlap and pink ribbon. I hot glued the pink ribbon on top of the burlap ribbon in the center and then used a rubber band at the bottom. Then I hot glued the ears to the 2×4 and added a pretty bow.
To put the adorable bunny face together, I added the eyes and then the whiskers. Then on top of the whiskers, I hot glued the heart nose. For the whiskers I didn’t have any black wire, so I improvised and painted my green floral wire with black acrylic paint.
This bunny was easy and fun to make. I think I am going to make a bunny family now, one for each of us because I feel this decoration needs some friends. This was a great project to use up extra 2×4 scrap pieces and to use items from my craft stash. Creating items from your craft stash, gives you an adorable new decoration and you can go buy more craft supplies. This Pinterest Challenge was a win!
