We had a mild winter up until a few weeks ago. Now, here in northern Arizona, it has been cold and we have been getting lots of snow. I am dreaming of spring and warmer weather. Today, I am sharing how to make a pretty bunny wall art you can display for spring or Easter.

Bunny Wall Art
I started by creating a bunny design in Cricut Design Space.
Cricut Design Space File: Bunny Wall Art
Start by opening a new project. Click on Shapes on the left side and add a square shape.
Click the unlock button on the bottom left of the square, and re-size the square to 10 inches by 8 inches.
Click on Images on the left. In the search bar type in the word “bunny”. I choose image Bunny #M46A5E from the cartridge Easter 2010.
De-select the top layer of the bunny image so you are left with a solid pink bunny shape. Re-size the bunny to fit within the rectangle. Select both images (the square and the bunny) and use the alignment tool to center them. Click Attach.
Load your white cardstock onto a light grip cutting mat and set the Smart Set Dial to Cardstock+.
Note: I always use Cardstock+ (one past the cardstock setting) when cutting out textured cardstock to be sure I get a clean cut.
Cut out the rectangle and bunny shape using your Cricut machine.
Use a paper trimmer to cut your patterned paper to fit the bunny shape. I cut mine 6 1/2 x 6 1/2 inches.
Use adhesive to attach the patterned paper to the backside of the cut-out bunny silhouette.
You could certainly leave the bunny just as it is at this point but I wanted to create a little pom pom tail. I used the Pom Pom maker from We R Memory Keepers. You start by opening the arms. Wrap yarn around each of the extended arms for several layers. Close the pom pom maker and trim down the middle of the yarn. It helps to have small, sharp scissors for this part. Use an extra piece of yarn to tie the pom pom down the middle tightly.
Open both arms of the Pom Pom maker and trim any excess yarn to create a fluffy ball.
Use a glue dot or dab of hot glue to attach the pom pom to the bunny picture.
Your bunny wall art is ready for display! I placed mine in a pretty white frame and I will add it to my spring tablescape.
