I’m excited to be joining Craft Lightning as a guest host this week with The Country Chic Cottage and 30 Minute Crafts. Our theme is decoupage, so check back in every day for a new decoupage project I’ve made, plus features from all the other bloggers participating this week. I’m starting out with a project perfect for Easter and Spring – framed Mod Podge bunnies.
I first cut these bunny shapes out of MDF with my scroll saw. You can likely find some blank wood bunnies at your craft store this time of year.
Next, I chose 3 pretty, spring-y patterns of scrapbook paper from my collection.
Before gluing, I wanted the paper to be as close to the right shape as possible. I placed the MDF on the paper and traced around with my Cricut True Control knife. You could also trace and cut with scissors.
Once the bunny papers are cut, spread a layer of Mod Podge with a foam brush and glue down the paper, making sure to line up the edges. Press down from the center to remove any possible wrinkles.
I also set a couple of heavy books on top to make sure the paper didn’t curl up at all while drying. Wait for it to dry completely and use sandpaper to get rid of any paper overhang. Rub the sandpaper down against the wood, not up to reduce the risk of tearing the paper off the bunny.
Seal with another layer of Mod Podge and glue them into a frame when dry.
You could also lightly rub the edges with an ink pad to give a distressed, rustic look.
