If you have been following me for awhile now, you already know I LOVE my DIY burlap projects. This little DIY Burlap Bunny Bag is great for Easter!
Growing up my family and I always dressed up every Sunday for Church but on Easter we took it up a notch. I have pictures of me and my little sister in large white brim hats, frilly gloves and purses to match. My mom bought my daughter a cute purple dress last year when the stores had their end of the summer sales. So, I wanted to make a bag to match the dress. I found this really cute burlap bag in the Easter section at my local craft store and immediately went to work.
- Burlap bag
- Bunny stencil
- White Yarn
- Foam paint brush
- Pom pom maker
- Hot glue gun *not pictured
Step 1: First I started by measuring the bag to see what size stencil I needed. Then I downloaded this bunny template and resized it in Word. I taped down the stencil just so I wouldn’t move while I paint. *The bag I used was 9″ x 6″ so I made the stencil 5″ x 5 1/2″. Make sure to insert a piece paper inside the bag so the paint and hot glue does not go through.
Step 2: Using a foam brush I painted the inside of the stencil using DecoArt paint in Purple Pizzazz. This purple was one of the colors in my daughter’s dress and it really pops! Just be careful when painting around the edges of the stencil. I held it down with my hands just to make sure the paper didn’t move on me.
Once everything was completely dried, I added a white and purple polka dot bow to the handle of the bag just to make even cuter.
I can’t wait until Easter! This little bag is so precious. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!!
