Every small little project I tackle out of my messy and overcrowded craft room gets me one step closer to having a clean space I can actually work in.
Last week when, I shared a new post about the DIY Wood Log Faux Floral Arrangement, I mentioned at the bottom of the post that I might try to make some wood slice bunnies. This week I have been making little things for my daughter’s upcoming baby shower, which I will share very soon. In the middle of that craziness, I pulled out my slowly dwindling pile of wood slices and created these three adorable bunnies in less than an hour.

In the past I have used my large supply of wood slices harvested from my own yard, for my daughter’s wedding nearly three years ago, to make several of my most popular posts. Like this one for the wedding cake topper, a wood slice Fall wreath, Christmas garland, Easter Candy jars, and some wood slice painted pumpkins.
I even used these wood slices as part of other projects. A wood slice was the nose for my Repurposed 2 x 4 Reindeers, the base for the Ribbon Christmas Trees, the base for my Succulent Christmas Tree Ornament, part of a Winter Wreath Makeover, and of course, my first Rustic Christmas Ornaments.
Whew, even I didn’t realize how many times I have used this box of wood slices!
Thankfully the large box of wood slices is almost gone. I can maybe get one or two more projects out of them including this one for these wood slice bunnies.
This project also includes white yarn, a Clover 1/2″ pom pom maker, small birch log stems from Dollar Tree, natural raffia, jute twine, acrylic craft paint, and small floral buds from my stash. And of course either hot glue or gorilla glue. For my project I used hot glue.
You can find all of these items on Amazon!
Step one, paint the center of the wood slices in Easter colors in blue and pink. Yellow and green would also work, but for a bunny I think the blue and pink looks the best. I also painted the four wood biscuits in white acrylic paint.
While the paint was drying, it took at least three coats, I created the small pom poms for the bunny tails using my Clover Pom Pom makers. Love these things.
For the bunny faces, I used black paint to create a nose and a mouth, googly eyes, and raffia for the whiskers.
Then I glued all of the pieces together with hot glue to create these adorable wood slice bunnies complete with a pom pom tail and small flowers accents.
You have probably noticed that I actually made a third version of a wood slice bunny without the painted sections. This was my “test” project to see how it would look. For the ears on this one, I wrapped the wood biscuits in the jute twine to make it more rustic and to hide the carved pattern on the wood biscuits. Both versions of this project are adorable either way.

These were fun to make and if I had a few more of the birch wood stems available in my stash I might have been tempted to make a few more. I guess I am getting somewhere on this project cleanout project since I can say that I ran out of something.
Until next time!
