Way back in January I was shopping at Gordman’s I came across Easter décor and saw some darling Polka Dot Pallet Bunnies. I though the Pallet Bunnies were darling but I wasn’t ready or even thinking of buying Easter Décor with 3 feet of snow on the ground. Now months later I was wishing I had purchased that darling Polka dot Pallet Bunny. I haven’t had a chance to make it back to Gordman’s and I’m quite sure they are probably sold out of those cute bunnies. I decided to try to make my own version.
To create your own Knock off Gordman’s Polka Dot Pallet Bunny you will need:
3 fence or pallet boards
2 lathing or furring strips
multi color paint
brad nail gun
First I drew a bunny template out of paper. My bunny template measures 19 1/2 inches long (bunny bum to bunny nose) and 15 inches tall (bunny ear to bunny foot).
I laid my 3 pieces of fence board down next to each other and traced my bunny pattern onto the fence boards.
I cut out the bunny shape using a jig saw.
I placed the 3 bunny pieces back together and then cut 2 furring strips to fit on each end of the bunny.
I attached the furring strips to the back of the bunny using a brad nail gun. Then I gave my bunny board a light sanding using and electric sander.
I dry brushed on some white paint to give the pallet bunny a rustic look. After the white paint was dry I choose pastel purple, blue, green, yellow, and coral paints to paint the polka dots onto the bunny. I used the lid of an old water bottle to create the dots. I dipped the lid into a color of paint and then randomly placed the dots on the bunny, I wiped the lid in between new colors.
While the polka dot paint was still wet I applied some iridescent glitter over each polka dot.
How cute did this Knock off Gordman’s Polka Dot Pallet Bunny turn out? He is such a fun addition to my Easter décor.
