DIY Wooden Easter Decor

Easter is this coming weekend, so I decided it was time to get crafty and make some DIY Wooden Easter Decor that includes some adorable wooden bunnies and eggs.

I began by gathering my supplies which included some wooden eggs and bunnies from Hobby Lobby, along with chalk paint, cream wax and a paint brush. For a complete list of supplies, please see below.

Before I started painting the bunnies, I decide to add some texture to them using Gel Medium Heavy Gel. I happened to have Gloss, but Matte would work just fine. I used a spatula to apply a thick layer of the gel medium to both of the wooden bunnies.

As you can see, I put it on rather thick and made sure it was not smooth to help give it more texture.

After the gel medium was dry, I painted the bunny with the Everlasting (White) Chalk Paint. When the paint dried, I noticed that it had a cracked appearance. This was a nice surprise and I loved how it added even more texture to them. I ended up applying two coats of paint. 

After the paint was dry, I applied the Cream Wax with a foam brush and wiped away the excess with a rag. I love the wonderful antiqued feel the Deep Brown wax added!

To finish off the bunnies, I added eyes and noses using adhesive black pearls and a crinkled seam binding bow!

I painted each of the eggs a different color of the chalk paint. I mixed the Romance (Red) with Everlasting (White) to get the soft pink color. After the paint was dry, I applied the cream wax with a foam brush. I then wiped off the excess and buffed them using a rag. The eggs seemed too plain with just a coat of paint, so I decided to dress them up using some ric rac ribbon from my stash. It was originally white, so I used Tim Holtz distress ink and a foam applicator to add some color to them.

To adhered the ribbon to the wooden egg, I used Therm O Web's iCraft Super Tape.

Now, my home is ready for Easter thanks to this cute DIY Wooden Easter Decor!
