Easter Bunny House

Easter is right around the corner. Are you ready? Sure St. Patrick's Day comes first, but they are only separated by a few weeks so I'm going straight to bunny town.

One of my favorite designers that regularly contributes to Kids Crafts 1-2-3 is Karen Sierre of Midwest Maude. For Issue #2 she converted a little wooden bird house into a gingerbread house. I decided to take her idea and tweak it into an Easter Bunny house.

Aleene's Tacky Glue
Paint Brush
Sparkle Collage Pauge
Easter bunny figurine
Rik Rack
Sheet of card paper
Small button

Using Easter hues paint your bird house. I wanted the back of my birdhouse to the be the front. In other words the hole and wooden bird perch will be on the backside.

I made a small scalloped edge door out of card stock and painted it brown. Once all the paint is dry use Collage Pauge to adhere your door. I opted for sparkle and gave the entire thing a coat.

Once your Collage Pauge has dried you can start adding all the fun embellishments. I went with rick rack, pink felt, polka dotted flowers and a vintage button door knob. I used Aleene's Tacky Glue to attach everything.

I think Mr. Bunny looks pretty smitten with his new digs. I know I'd love a sparkly polka dotted house.
