There are so many 2x4 wood block crafts. If you do a quick search on Pinterest, you'll find tons! I stumbled on today's project that way. I saw some really cute wooden Easter bunnies and I knew I could make these pretty easily and that I would have what I needed without having to go out shopping.
Here's what you will need to make a 2x4 wood block bunny.
2x4 wood scrap cut to 4" length
Take the 2x4 scrap and paint the top side with white paint.
While this is drying, you will want to take your bunny pattern and trace it to a piece of contact paper.
Cut out your bunny and set him aside.
By now, the white paint on the 2x4 should be dry. Take the contact paper bunny cut-out and affix him to the top of the white 2x4. Make sure it is sealed on there very good. The contact paper will act as a resist when we paint over the 2x4 with another color paint. Before we move on to the next color paint, it is always a good idea to paint the edges of the contact paper with the first color or in this case white. Let that dry and then you will be ready to move onto the next color of paint.
I selected Debi's Design Diary DIY Paint in Weathered Wood. It is one of my favorites and the contrast over the white will make the bunny really stand out.
Paint the 2x4 on all sides using the DIY Paint.
Once that had dried, you will want to peel up the contact paper to reveal the bunny underneath.
You will want to seal your wood block with a little bit of wax.
Now all you have to do is glue a little jute twine bow to the bunny's neck to finish off the project.
