Our Lathe Wood Pallet Boxes are perfect for a variety of projects, seasons, and designs. I have turned them into quick signs with stencils, but this time, I was thinking of a quick and easy Easter project. All over Pinterest I have noticed a wide range of projects using silhouettes from children’s faces to cute animals like this bunny. After finding a silhouette shape that would work for my pallet box, I sized him to fit and then I was ready to go. You will only need a few supplies to bring this little guy to life.
Here is what you will need:
DecoArt Americana Paint:
15 Pack Assorted Foam Brushes (#87423)
Papillon Round Size 5 (#20162)
Acrylic Sealer Finisher Matte Spray (#70836)
Natural Canvas Fabric Roses (#40207)
Large Sanding Pad – Fine/Medium (#70796)
Gray Graphite Paper (#70141)
Americana Gel Stains:
Maple (#70135) – You can use any stain color that you would like, or even paint the background a pastel color.
Here is the link to the PDF file for the bunny outline I used:
This project is quick and easy and takes very little time to complete…making it perfect to paint more than one!
Sand your box with the Sanding Disk. Wipe off dust with a damp cloth. Dip a sponge brush into your stain and start brushing it on in the direction of the grain and onto the sides. Let dry completely. I did a light sanding afterwards, just to knock down any grain that raised up.
Center your bunny outline onto your box and transfer into place with your graphite paper. With your Round Size 5 and Snow White, outline your bunny shape and then completely fill in. Let dry and then do a second coat of Snow White for good coverage.
Finish with a coat of spray varnish.
For the final detail, I added one canvas rose for the bunny tail.
And there you have it….a quick and easy Easter decoration for you to enjoy!
Happy Spring, and Happy Painting!
