Want a cute gold and chocolate bunny to make your Easter decor pop! Today I am joining forces with my friends at Oriental Trading Company to bring you a fun makeover that is sure to become a family treasure.
When I was a kid we couldn’t wait to see what we were going get in our baskets Easter morning. One thing is for sure there was always a large chocolate bunny standing tall in the back of all the goodies! When I saw the Sweet Lily Long Ears Figurine on Oriental Trading Companies site, I knew she would be perfect for this crafty makeover!
Be sure to check out the product list at the bottom of the post so you can create your own version of this sweet golden faux chocolate bunny. Let’s get started!
Faux Chocolate Bunny Figurine
- Lily Long Ears Rabbit Figurine or any other Rabbit Figurine
- Gold Spray Paint (Rustoleum Metallic Gold is my Fav, it is super shiny gold)
- Acrylic Paint: Brown Oxide (or a Warm Brown Color)
- Spray Acrylic Paint Sealer
Remove any ribbons or lose articles from the figurine.
Paint the entire rabbit with gold spraypaint. Let it dry per manufacturer’s directions. I let mine dry overnight.
Paint the outer ears and body of the rabbit with brown acrylic paint. Leave the inner ear, eyes and tail gold. The acrylic paint will not cover the gold spray paint thoroughly in one coat, so apply several coats to get the desired finished product.
Paint the nose light pink. Once you get everything covered with acrylic paint let it dry overnight. After 24-48 hours seal with a spray acrylic paint sealer. Tie a ribbon around his neck and display!
To make the Faux Gold Chocolate Bunny centerpiece: I used some eucalyptus stems, some peony picks, and painted some ceramic bunnies with the same gold spray paint as the chocolate bunny. Add everything to a gold tray and place it in your Easter tablescape.
