How to Make a Spring Bunny Door Hanger with Acrylic Paint and StyleTechCraft Vinyl.
I love changing out my decorations with the seasons.
For Spring this year, I decided I needed a new bunny.
This cute little bunny door hanger makes me smile every time I see him.
Dollar Tree* always seems to have the perfect wood cut out for me to use.
And when it only costs $1.25, it’s affordable too.

How to make The Spring Bunny Door Hanger:
- The bunny was a little too gray for my taste, so I warmed up the color by painting it with DecoArt Bleached Sand Acrylic Paint*.
- My project was inspired by a Large Floral Rabbit Decoration that I saw at Michael’s Craft Store. I liked the look of the painted flowers on the rabbit. But since my hand-painting skills are not that good, a floral stencil would have to do.
- I created a stencil using StyleTechCraft Matte Removable Vinyl*, my Silhouette Cameo Electronic Die Cutting Machine*, and the “Flower Corner” SVG file from The Silhouette Store.
- I removed all the details inside the cut image with a vinyl craft pick tool. I left only the background.
- Paint inside the background using acrylic paint.
- I used the same cut stencil for both sides.
- Next came the fun part. I cut all the pieces of the bunny using StyleTechCraft Glossy Craft Vinyl*, the Easter Bunny Face SVG file (from the Silhouette Store), and my Silhouette Cameo Electronic Die Cutting Machine*.

- After cutting all the pieces, I removed the excess vinyl from around the images using a Vinyl Weeding Tool*.
- To transfer the vinyl, lay the Vinyl Transfer Tape* over the image.
- Rub over the Vinyl Transfer Tape* with a vinyl scraper tool and lift the image from the white paper backing.
- For the florals, line up the vinyl over the painted area.
- Gently rub over the transfer tape with the scraper tool.
- Remove the transfer tape.
- To create the handle, paint several wood beads with the same acrylic paint as the flowers.
- String the beads onto a piece of natural twine*.
- An Easy DIY Tip: Dip the end of the twine into craft glue. Twirl the fibers with your fingers tips to make the strands tight. Once the glue dries, it’s easy to add the beads.
- I rubbed a little pink paint onto the face before adding the whiskers.
- I added adhesive rhinestones to the inside of the smaller flowers.
- A Hello Spring Greeting finishes off the door hanger.
I decided to add the Bunny Door Hanger to the inside of my Boxwood Wreath.
I think it looks cute hanging on my front door.
