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

bunny template

white paint

multi color paint

glitter

jig saw

brad nail gun

electric sander

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.
