Easy Dollar Tree Easter Tabletop Decoration
Hi everyone! Can you believe that it is already March? I'd like to take the time and thank each and every one of you for creating with me. I appreciate you all so much. ❤
Today we are creating an Easter tabletop decoration using one of the galvanized bunnies from Dollar Tree. I actually purchased it last year, but I hadn't gotten around to creating a craft with it until now. This craft is beginner friendly and only uses a few materials.
One galvanized bunny sign
One rectangle wooden piece-You can easily use scrap wood. I am using a wooden piece from a block set.
I purchased one round wood piece at Dollar Tree; they come in different shapes. I decided to go with the oval shape.
Acrylic paint- I am using a color called celery for the wood pieces and applying white to the bunny sign.
Faux greenery and tulips
Begin by taking your paintbrush and applying paint over your galvanized bunny. This is not required, but I wanted to apply a thin layer of white paint before I used my mod podge and napkin.
Allow your paint to completely dry.
Next, using a paintbrush apply a thin layer of mod podge over the painted surface on your bunny. After doing this, take your napkin and remove the second layer of your napkin before applying it over the first coat of mod podge. Lay your napkin over your mod podge and gently press it down.
I normally use a blow dryer when working with mod podge. I've noticed that it helps with removing any lines and creases. Apply a second coat of mod podge over your napkin and repeat the previous steps. Use your scissors or craft knife to remove any of the leftover napkins around the edges. Set your bunny aside.
Next, take your acrylic paint and begin to apply it to your wood pieces. Allow your wood pieces to dry before gluing them together.
Take your rectangle wood piece and using hot glue, glue it to the center of your oval wooden piece.
After, take your twine and with a small section create a bow. Take your twine and begin to wrap it around your bunny where the indentions are before you get to the body of your bunny. I started with a single strand and tied it off before wrapping it around. Cut and glue down any of the remaining twine.
Attach your bunny to your wood stand by applying hot glue to the bottom of the bunny. Take your floral cutters and begin to cut your floral and greenery to size. After cutting your flowers, start to glue them onto your wooden stand.
Your decoration is now complete. I love how this craft turned out. Such a simple creation and most materials were purchased at my local Dollar Tree. I hope that you have enjoyed this craft. Let me know if you decide to create your very own. Thank you so much for stopping by and creating with me. I'll see you soon.
