Framed Bunny Tutorial

 I just love the cute, faux animal heads I have been seeing around blog land and on Pinterest. I don't think they are something I would put in my living room, but I do think they are pretty cute in a kids room or office. I have been wanting to do some kind of faux animal in my daughter's room for awhile now. And with Easter being only a few weeks away I thought a bunny would be perfect. 



Here are some of the supplies I used to get started:
Hot Glue Gun
Ribbon
White Napkin (Mod Podged to body)
Felt (for ears)
Styrofoam Ball (can be found at any craft store or dollar store)
Pom Poms (for mouth and nose)
Buttons (for eyes)
Black Thread (whiskers)



I cut my styrofoam ball in half. I felt like I was cutting up a piece of fruit. I had the cutting board and knife 
out . I wasn't messing around here peeps.


 After I was done cutting I laid out my napkin and cut off a square to put around the bunny's head. I wanted a little texture and the styrofoam was a little to blah for me. 


I then wrapped the napkin around the cut half of the styrofoam ball and taped the napkin to the back to make it lay flat. I then started to apply the Mod Podge.  You will need to let it dry for about 20 minutes before handling it.


I also Mod Podged black thread to use for the whiskers. I didn't want droopy whiskers so I used Mod Podge to make them stiffer.


I then cut the strands of thread into pieces (after the Mod Podge was done drying). I hot glued the cut thread to the pink and two white poms and then glued it to the stryofoam half. 


I then cut out two ears from white felt and hot glued them to the styrofoam ball and also glued the eyes on. I didn't use a pattern for the ears I just started cutting until they started to look like ears. I am sure there are bunny ear pattern that you could use.



I used this pink brush pen that I got in a kit from Hobby Lobby to color inside the bunny ears.


Once I colored the inside of the ears, I added a little bow and tucked in a little piece of pink felt under the two white poms for a bunny mouth.


I had an old frame and mat from a project that never got done so I decided to use that to frame the bunny.
And since this is a framed bunny, I decided it needed a name plate. I had this label from another project, but you could easily cut out your own. I colored in the corners with the pink marker I used for the ears and glued it onto the mat.  


My daughter name the bunny Babsy. I think it is a combination of bunny and baby. :)


I used double sided tape to stick Babsy onto the wall. 




I think Babsy turned out pretty cute!
