Concrete and copper Easter bunnies.

March 17, 2016

Have you subscribed to my newsletter yet? If so, you’ve seen a sneak-peak of this DIY project already. I made them last week and I have been so excited that I couldn’t wait to show it to you. I’m so smitten how they turned out and they weren’t even hard to make. Those are the best DIY tutorials, right?

All you need is:

  • quick cement
  • copper wire
  • blown-out egg shells
  • Washi tape
  • water-proof pen
  • scalpel
  • wire pliers
  • a bowl and a spoon to mix the cement with water

First we need to make the ears of the bunnies with wire. For this bend the wire into shape and cut it off with the pliers. Press the ends together so they are as close as they can be.

Next we prepare the egg shells which means we need to make the holes bigger. For this you’ll need the scalpel. The one on the top should be just as big that the ends of the copper ears fit through. The one on the bottom should be just as big that you can fit your little finger through.

Now stick the copper ears through the hole on the top and attach them carefully with some Washi tape.

Mix the cement as it says on the back of the packaging in the bowl. Cut off some stripes of the Washi tape and put them aside. Fill the egg shells with the concrete (slowly pour it in). Close the hole on the bottom with the tape and put them on a piece of cardboard.

Now it’s waiting time. The cement will take about 24 h to harden. Then peel the egg shell off with your fingers or the scalpel and voilá! All you need to do is draw a face with the waterproof pen and you have your own concrete and copper Easter bunnies!

I put them on my sideboard with just one simple succulent that I had at home. I made the planter for this a while ago. You can find the tutorial for this concrete cups here.

I also decorated them sitting in a little nest like this. Although it makes no sense that a little bunny sits in a nest other than it has an egg shape. Still looks cute though and not everything has to be logic in my home decor. Who’s with me?

Oh and then another concrete project I made that has been quite popular ever since is this stand. I use it normally for a little plant but it was originally intended as a cupcake stand. But cupcakes don’t last that long in my surrounding that they need an extra display. Oooops.
