Decoupage Money Box Rabbit Tutorial
By Melinda Spinks
It has been a while since I had a hair-brained scheme so I was quite excited when I purchased this paper mache rabbit recently because I had 'big plans'. You see my daughter had been asking for a money box because she was tired of her Milo tin and it wasn't very pretty. So, as soon as I saw this little guy I knew he was destined to be her 'money bunny' and the Flower Box collection was the perfect choice for his technicolor coat. Who knew it would take me all week to finish?
This project is definitely not for someone who doesn't like to get 'messy'. I applied each punched flower using Mod Podge and a paint brush, however some of the curved surfaces like the ears, face and feet required a more hands-on approach to get the paper into every nook and cranny.
Once you have finished a section then completely cover it in Mod Podge with a wide flat brush to seal all the pieces.
What money bunny is complete without the coin slot. I simply used my craft blade to cut a small rectangular slot into the head of the bunny. I promise he didn't feel a thing.
Lastly I created a 'money bunny' tag to hang around his neck and finished off with a pretty yellow bow.
