Last year I bought a lot of Martha Stewart Flocking Powder on clearance, and now I’m hooked. I’m also prone to making awful puns like “get the flock out of here!” when working with the powder. Excuse my dorkishness, Anyways, flocking powder such a fun product to craft with (and make puns about)! I started out using it on cards, but I really like the look achieved when added to craft basics: it looks like a cuddly, plush toy! They don’t look like paper anymore, do they? Keep reading to learn how you can turn paper mache eggs into adorable flocked bunnies.
- Large Paper Mache Egg (2)
- Flocking Powder
- Glue or Mod Podge
- Googly Eyes
Step one: Paint the egg with a color matching the flocking powder you plan to use.
Step two: Cut ears from felt and hot glue them onto the painted egg.
Step three: Cover the egg with Mod Podge and sprinkle flocking powder on top. I press the powder in before gently tapping the excess off. Once it dries, I like to paint over the flocking and add a second layer of powder, to give it a fuller, more “fluffy” look.
Step four: Glue on eyes and felt feet with a hot glue gun. For the nose and whiskers, learn how to make them in this spool bunny tutorial.
I made a cute little grass nest for one bunny to sit in, and you can find that tutorial here. These bunnies make adorable table or mantle decor. There are lots of different colors of flocking powder to choose from, so you can make your bunnies in any color you like. Have fun crafting and creating with flocking powder for Easter!
