DESIGNER CRAFTS CONNECTION – FIRST MONDAY IN APRIL!

Today’s DCC Hop is all about SPRING!

Love Spring and Easter, so I have decided to share this cute craft I did this weekend with my Niece, Marlee and my Nephew, Zach. They like to give crafts to their Mom, Great-Aunt, Grandmoms and Great-Grandmom for special holidays. I always make them sign and date the project on the bottom, which turns a simple kids craft in to a true keepsake!

I base coated recycled round light bulbs with Krylon’s Primer in All-Purpose White, this allows the acrylic paint to adhere better. We used Americana Acrylic Paints by DecoArt in Titainmum White to base coat Bunny and sponged Light Buttermilk over top to create the “furry” texture. Once dry we rubbed on some watered down Gooseberry Pink paint for the cheeks and painted on the nose. A great resource for crafting with kids are Sharpie markers – so easy to use for details like facial features! Cut Bunny ears from white felt and glue across the top of the light bulb with Aleene’s Original Tacky Glue from ilovetocreate. Top with a miniature straw hat embellished with a strip of scrap fabric and a fuzzy little chick. Glue the light bulb Bunny to miniature grapevine wreath and ENJOY!

Please use the DCC navigation on the right sidebar to hop around to the other Designers on our web ring and view the creative projects that they have posted for March.

Thanks for stopping by! -Beth
