At this point I don’t have as much of an opportunity to just play around and create, so when I got a pack of 20 natural wood bunnies, I made the time. One night I ended up with 4 different ways to make an Easter basket tag by playing with paint and iron on and am now sharing them with you!
1 – Natural Wood
The “keep it simple” method with no paint. I just cut names in iron on and applied it to the wooden tags with my EasyPress.
2 – Solid Paint
A step up from the natural wood, just paint the bunny a solid color (I used acrylic paint). Let dry and use your EasyPress to apply the iron on name to the tag, using a protective sheet between the iron on and EasyPress.
3 – Blended Paint
This was a fun, unexpected one. I placed 2 dots of a darker blue and 1 dot of a lighter blue acrylic paint on a bunny, placed another bunny on top and twisted them around to blend the paint. When you pull them apart, use the other to smear paint over if any areas still need paint.
Let them dry overnight. Just like the painted bunny above, use your EasyPress to apply the iron on name to the tag, using a protective sheet between the iron on and EasyPress.
4 – Nail Polish Dip
Years ago I used the nail polish dip method to add a water color look to a white mug, so thought I’d try the same thing for some bunnies. Fill up a cup with water. Pour / drop nail polish on the top of the water in different designs. I used 3 colors: silver, blue and teal. Wear gloves and place your bunny into the water flat so the nail polish covers one side. Then dunk in and pull up and let dry.
I didn’t add a name on top of these, but you could using the same method as the painted wooden bunnies, or just use for decoration!
Which one is your favorite?
