Easter Bunny Specimen Art

This is my first attempt at making any kind of specimen art, just in time for Easter!

This was a really easy project to do and I like how it turned out.

First, I took a thrifted mirror in which I had spray painted the frame a cream color some time ago and hadn’t found the right place for yet.

Then I took out the glass and covered the inside cardboard insert with a piece of burlap.

For my “specimens,” I decided on a peeps-style bunny shape. I cut out one to use as a template and then replicated it many times over using printed scrapbook paper scraps.

I mounted the shapes in rows using double-sided adhesive foam dots to not only adhere them to the burlap, but to make them pop out a little bit.

What do you think? After making it I wondered whether solid colors would have looked better. Oh well, it’s done now and if I wanted to do another I now know how easy it is.

Happy Spring!

  1. I LOVE this! I think you were so right to go with multiple patterns. This is too inspiring because I’ve had an old mirror that has just been sitting in a closet and I wasn’t sure what to do with it…now I am looking to Memorial Day! Wouldn’t that be cute? I am new to your site coming over from T&Jello. I hope you’ll have a moment to link this up on my family friendly blog’s linky party going on now at Teagan’s Travels.
