Am I the only one who thinks that bunnies are super adorable? Around Easter cute little Peeps, fun window clings, and wall decorations all sport the springy little animals which seriously delights me.
While shopping at Hobby Lobby (love that store) for supplies for this DIY spring wreath, I saw this gorgeous silhouetted moss bunny hanging. Like most craft-o-holics, I saw it and immediately thought, “I need one of these but I can totally make one like it at home.”
So that’s what I did and the end result is this easy and beautiful DIY moss bunny wall art! The best part is that you can make your own for a fraction of what it would cost you in the store.
DIY Moss Bunny Wall Art Materials
First, start by cutting your foam board in half, bisecting the longest edge. Don’t worry about making a perfectly even straight edge. Your bunny outline will be cut from it later.
Next, free-hand draw a silhouette of a bunny. You can use the photo above for reference if you need to.
- I chose to draw a side profile of a bunny but you can draw whatever is easiest for you. If you aren’t confident in your drawing skills, a quick Google search will give you an outline you can print and tape to your foam board. Simply cut out the outline of the taped image in step 3 just as you would the drawing.
Then cut out your bunny along the outline you drew using a box cutter (or XActo knife).
After you cut your bunny out, the edges are rough. Smooth them down by sanding the rough edges with your sand paper.
Once your edges are sanded, generously coat your bunny with Mod Podge.
Then place the entire bunny on a piece of newspaper or poster board and cover entire thing with moss.
Carefully shake off the excess moss and return it to the container. Allow it to dry completely before moving on.
After the bunny has dried completely, add a second generous coat of Mod Podge. Make sure it gets into all of the nooks and crannies of the moss.
Again, cover your bunny with moss and carefully shake off the excess. Return the excess moss to the container and allow to dry completely.
- Your bunny may require a third coat of Mod Podge and moss. This is completely up to your discretion. The bunny pictured only has 2 coats.
After your bunny is dry, spray it with sealant in a well-ventilated space, and allow to dry.
Paint the edges and back of your bunny with black acrylic paint. Allow the paint to dry completely.
- If you would like, you can add a second coat of paint. I chose to not to because the painted side will be against the wall.
Next, create your bow while you wait for your paint to dry. To do this, cut 5 feet of ribbon from the spool.
Then fold your ribbon in on itself repeatedly as pictured so that the folded piece is about 5 inches long.
Next, tie a scrap of ribbon or a twist tie in the center of your folded piece of ribbon.
- If you use a scrap of ribbon, be sure to cut the ends off.
To finish your bow, fluff your ribbon out to create a bow as pictured above.
Do not cut the ends off of your ribbon on your bow.
Once your paint is dry, attach your picture hook to the back of your bunny using hot glue.
Lastly, tie your ribbon around the neck of your bunny. Add a dab of hot glue on the back if necessary to secure it to your bunny.
Once your DIY moss bunny wall art is dried, you can hang it up on your wall and enjoy. If you choose to hang it outdoors, I recommend spraying the entire bunny (front and back) with your sealant spray to help protect it from the elements.
I love ours so much that it found a place in our home with my Alice in Wonderland decor year round. It is beautiful Easter décor but can function as regular décor as well. Holiday décor is even better when it fits with your existing decorating scheme in my opinion!
