Anyone can make this sweet and simple burlap bunny Easter decor with just an old frame, a piece of burlap and some paint, so it’s perfect for a beginner crafter!
There’s still time for you to whip one up for this Easter, or you can file it on your Pinterest board for next year!
I found these oval picture frames at a thrift store, and normally I would turn away from the oval shape, but since it’s almost Easter my mind immediately went to the Easter egg craft possibilities!
I’m loving all the rustic, vintage and neutral Easter decor this year, so I decided to bring on the burlap, with cream bunnies and frames.
Here’s how you can make your own burlap bunny Easter decor, even if you have a plain old rectangle or square frame 😉
Materials and supplies:
- Old picture frame
- Spray paint in your choice of color (+ spray primer and clear sealer if desired). I used Ivory Bisque by Rust-Oleum Painter’s Touch.
- Burlap fabric (enough to cover the frame opening)
- Spray adhesive
- Acrylic craft paint in your choice of color (I used cream)
- Craft sponge brush
- Bunny stencil (or your choice of shape)**
**I made my own bunny stencil by printing these free printable bunnies on card stock (at a reduced size) and cutting the inside of the shape out. You can make your own stencil with any clip art shape!
Burlap Bunny Easter Decor Steps:
1. Take your frame apart, clean the frame and glass.
2. Lightly sand the frame to remove any shine, then cover with spray primer if using.
3. Spray the frame with spray paint in your chosen color.
4. (Optional) spray the frame with spray sealer for extra protection.
5. Lay out the burlap, place the glass on top and trace the edges with chalk.
6. Remove the glass and cut the burlap along the chalk lines.
7. Tape your stencil to the burlap.
8. Using the sponge brush and acrylic paint, start with a very light amount of paint and gently dab inside the stencil to fill it in. You can keep applying more until you get the look you like.
9. Remove the stencil and let the paint dry.
10. Spray the glass with spray adhesive, and press the burlap onto the glass.
11. Re-assemble the frame with the burlap facing out, and hang that bunny up!
I love my little burlap bunnies and they were so easy to make! Sure there’s a few steps involved, but they’re easy steps that anyone can do, even if you’re somewhat craft-challenged like myself 😉
I have to thank my husband for doing the spray painting (he’s the painting guru around here), and thanks to all of the lovely craft and home decor bloggers who inspired me.
I hope I’ve inspired you too!
