REUSE FRAMED EASTER BUNNY ART CRAFT
As you know, I love a fun way to reuse a frame, as you can see in these upcycled frame projects. Heck, you can even find them on the side of the road for free sometimes. Let’s take these frames and make an adorable craft.
Not Easter time? No worries. You can do this project with any holiday. As always, let this be a springboard to your imigination.
Bunny Art Craft Materials Needed:

- 5”x5” inexpensive thrifted or Dollar Store photo frame
- Americana Decor Chalky Finish in Keepsake
- Decor Creme Wax in white
- Americana Acrylics in Snow White and Poodleskirt Pink
- Black paint pen
- Paintbrushes, assorted sizes, and paper towel
- Cork sheet
- Printable Peeking Bunny template
Remove glass and picture frame backing. Apply a coat of chalky paint in Keepsake to frame. Let it dry fully.
Once dry, apply a coat of white wax over the frame and rub excess off with a clean paper towel. Put aside to dry.
Print out the peeking bunny template and size as needed to fit your frame.
Prepare a sheet of cork to fit inside the photo frame, measure length and width, mark with pencil and cut.
Cut out around the bunny along the solid line. Use the cut-out as a stencil to mark onto the cork. Trace around the bunny directly onto the cork.
Using a fine-tip paintbrush, fill in the penciled area with white paint. Let dry and add an extra coat of paint if needed.
Paint and fill in a half circle with black paint pen for the bunny nose and two small circles in pink for the bunny cheeks. And then paint two upside down half circle lines for the eyes and add the whiskers when cheeks are dry.
Insert cork sheet into the photo frame to finish.
