I’ve recently come to the conclusion that Bunnies are great to use in a variety of projects throughout the year. For the most part a bunny adds whimsy to any creative arts and crafts project. Especially if you add tones from classic stories like “Alice in Wonder Land” and “Peter Rabbit”. They look lovely on textiles, as vases or just as cute little handmade statues. It’s hard to hide the fact that I’ve become so obsessed with bunnies this year and that yes indeed I have put my own funky twist on bunnies by creating Cliff and Andrea Bunny Portraits….. Can you blame me? It’s such a cute and a fun way to reflect your family’s personal style and individuality. Not only are they adorable and inexpensive but also very easy to create and customize. I see myself making many more of these as gifts for wedding couples, mothers to be or as an alternative family portraits. Why not?

Since this project has nothing to do with technique I’m going to spare you on directions because the sky is the limit on what you can use, alter or refashion. Just in-case you are super curious here’s a list of what I used:

Time: about an hour

Difficulty: Easy to moderate depending on how crazy you want to go with embelishments!

Materials/Tools

  1. Canvas. I used pre-dyed from Michaels.
  2. Paints/brushes. I used Liqutex Simply Basics.
  3. Mod Podge
  4. Fabric. I used bandanas.
  5. Embellishments. I used buttons, glitter and rhinestones.
  6. Hot glue or super strong glue for embellishments
  7. Scissors
  8. Bunny template which can be made with a piece of paper.

If you want to dive into the funky bunny world I only have one suggestion. “Play that funky music white bunny!”
