DIY Standing Bunny Reclaimed Pallet Wood
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.

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
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.
