I love the look of the 2×4 wood block crafts that are all over Pinterest these days, so my Smoothfoam Easter bunny blocks are the perfect quick and easy project to craft up for the holiday – and no power tools needed! Smoothfoam is one of my all time favorite materials to use as a base instead of wood. It comes in a variety of shapes, is easy to cut and carve and paints up like a dream!
Display your Easter bunny block family on a table or shelf. Make these Easter bunny art projects for a co-worker or teacher, or craft a set with the kids or a special friend. HOPPY EASTER!!
Start with 3 Smoothfoam blocks (2″ x 4″ x 12″). Bunny Dad is 12″ tall, use a hot wire tool to cut a second block to 10″ tall for Bunny Mom, and cut the third block to 8″ for Bunny Baby. Sand away any melted strings with a nail file.
Paint the three blocks black. Apply a crackle medium and let dry according to package directions. Paint each block with a white topcoat. As the paint dries, the cracks will appear.
Cut a nose from pink felt, two eyes from blue felt and two ears from white felt for each bunny and glue in place.
Cut 18 pieces of wire 6″ long. Twirl each length around a pencil, then insert three on each side of the the bunnies noses. Secure with a small dot of glue at base.
Detail each Bunny’s eyes with dark gray and white paints as shown and let dry. Paint a line for the mouth with dark gray.
Embellish each bunny block with a ribbon bow tie for Dad and hair bows for Mom and Baby.
