These tiny rabbits are easy to make, fun to paint, and make great presents for friends and family. Place them all around the house for a darling addition to your Easter decor.To make these cute Bunny Babies you will need:
  • rounded wooden coffee stirrers {like those found at Starbucks}
  • paper clay or air hardening clay
  • black and pink sharpie pens
  • assorted colors of acrylic paint
  • paint brushes
  • scissors
  • sealant {optional}
  • blush makeup {optional}
Step One Cut the tips off of wooden coffee stirrers. These will be the ears for your bunnies! 2 Step Two 
Form a small egg shape with your clay. I used paper clay, which looks best when smoothed over with a little water while working with it. Another great choice is white air hardening clay. Stick two wooden ears into the round clay pieces and let dry a full 24 hours. 3 Step Three  Paint a solid color on all bunnies. Pastel colors work best. When fully dry, add a little face and some details with permanent markers. 4 Step Four  If you want your bunnies to have rosy cheeks, paint some makeup blush on with a small brush. Another great idea to ensure that your bunnies last, is to spray them lightly with clear acrylic sealer. Make sure you do this step with plenty of ventilation. If you are working inside, another option it to coat your bunnies with Mod Podge or Sculpey clear glaze. 5 If you happen to have some chenille chicks, place them with your bunnies for an adorable decoration!
