2x4 Bunny Blocks

The paint supplies for these 2x4 Bunny Blocks was provided by Plaid Crafts.

These 2x4 Bunny Blocks are a fun little craft to bring a little spring to your decor.
You may even have everything you need on hand...we used a 2x4 from our scrap pile.

I love a good 2x4 project...mainly because I have loads of leftover 2x4s on hand from various projects. Usually, these projects don't cost a thing to put together...and are fairly uncomplicated, too. Check out the tutorial for these 2x4 Bunny Blocks below.

It's definitely bunny season, y'all. Pretty sure this is like my fifth bunny project this month. They're multiplying like, well...you know. But, I love the sweetness of a simple bunny silhouette...and they just scream spring. I made a floppity-jillion of these 2x4 bunny blockslast weekend and now have put them evvvvvvverywhere around the house! They're just so fun!

I started with just a scrap piece of a 2x4. I cut it into several 3.5" squares (since technically, that's the actual size of the 4" side of a 2x4...weird). I sanded all of the edges to round them off and soften them a bit.

I used some pretty spring-colored Waverly acrylic paints in Celery, Mineral, and Cream.

I only painted one of the larger sides of each of the blocks.

Then I added a small vinyl bunny silhouette. I used my vinyl cutter to cut this bunny, but you can find these online or at a craft store. The color of vinyl won't matter...it's just a template, in this case.

I seal my vinyl with the same color of paint that I just used on the first coat.

Then I did two coats of the Cream paint on the entire block.

Once the second coat of Cream is dry, just peel off the vinyl.

I sanded the edges of my blocks for a weathered look with coarse sand paper.

I used dark furniture wax on the edges of the blocks to age them further.
I used a little wax mixed with paint to lighten areas where the wax, alone, was too dark.

You could do so many fun colors for this...I kept it simple to coordinate with my decor, though. These 2x4 Bunny Blocks are the perfect little Easter decor touch all over the house.
