DIY Standing Bunny Reclaimed Pallet Wood

12 Materials
15 Minutes

Spring is a time of new beginnings; for this reason, as soon as the temperatures start to warm up, I start new projects such as DIY crafts, gardening, and cooking. I had a stack of pallets, so I decided to make a pallet wood project; I also wanted it to be an easy project. I know how much fun my pallet bunny has brought my spring and Easter decor, so I wanted to make some to share.

A DIY standing bunny from pallet wood would be a fun DIY Easter project. Therefore I made a pattern from the bunny I made last year. These standing bunnies are perfect to greet my family and guests. Therefore, I know these will make someone else happy too.

Wooden Easter Bunnies are the perfect Easter pallet woodcraft project.

This Easter bunny decoration project only takes a few minutes to build from the reclaimed pallet wood, however, taking apart the pallet does add another 10 minutes to the overall time.

How to Build a DIY Standing Easter Bunny

Supplies and Tools:

  • Reclaimed pallet

  • Wood glue

  • 1/2 staples

  • Battens (cut from a scrap 2 x 4)

  • Chalk paint

  • Chalk paintbrush

  • Measuring tape

After gathering your supplies and tools, you can start building your Easter bunny decoration.

Reclaimed wood pallets

Assembling the bunny is especially easy if you set up a table since you need a flat surface to layout the pallet wood. I used boards placed over a sawhorse as my work surface.

Tracing the bunny pattern on the wood

Once I traced the bunny pattern on the wrong side of the pallet wood, I used applied wood glue between the boards.

Gluing the boards together

Support Battens

Using a piece of scrap 2 x 4, I ripped them to make the support battens.

Marking the placement for the bunny

Note: It is easier to paint the bunny before adding the stand.
