Easter bunnies! Dollar store Easter bunnies! Ok, so the little Easter bunnies that I picked up from the dollar store are so, so, so cute…. however, their cute little pink ears, and their cute beady little eyes just weren’t one-hundred percent meshing with the rest of my Easter decor…. I was looking for something with the same cuteness level, but slightly more neutral. (Yes — even more neutral than an already white Easter bunny…. silly, I know!)
Lately I have been on a “White-Ochre” chalk-painting spree…. I’ve recently painted my antique-tin-ceiling wall-art, my serving tray, my buffet, and even my giant spoon and my giant fork! So I thought — why not?
It took two coats of chalk-paint to get the perfect look. The already-white surface covered super-easy, but the eyes and ears took a couple of super-thick coats. And just an FYI, when painting on this type of material, you have to wait for the paint to completely dry in between coats, or else it won’t stick properly.
I originally saw this idea over at The Creek Line House! Only instead of using chalk paint, she used this really neat “Mirror Effect” spray paint…. and wow — did those bunnies turn out amazing! (Check it out here!)
So basically, you can update your dollar store bunnies with whatever paint you have on hand, and you can use any color you like too! It’s such an easy, simple and cute way to customize your very own home decor!
I personally think that these cute little bunnies turned out amazing! I couldn’t be more happy with them, and I can’t wait for you to see them incorporated with all of my other Easter decor…. but, we’ll save that for another day…. So make sure you stop back by The Project Pile to check it out!

You always have such cute little ideas to make any holiday decor come together!
Haha… I don’t know about that… but I certainly try! 😉
What dollar store did the bunnies come from? Such a cute idea!!
Hi McKenzie! These cute little bunnies actually came from Dollaramma! (Totally one of my favorite stores!) 🙂
I notice the pre-treated bunnies have what appears to be a ceramic glaze, or are shiny, anyway. Did you have to scuff up the surface by sanding first, or just coat them with the chalk paint?
Hi Renna! For these bunnies I actually was able to cover them with just a couple of coats of paint without doing any resurfacing! But that is a great tip!! If you don’t have time for multiple coats or are having a lot of trouble with your paint sticking, you can definitely scuff up your project with a little sandpaper. Great question!! 🙂
Very cute idea
Thank you!! 🙂
Just did this with a bunch of different coloured glass and ceramic bunnies, including one just like yours, and they came out beautifully! Thank you.
So glad it worked for you!! 🙂
Did you put a glaze on to get the shiny look?!? I love these and can’t wait to give them a try!
