This rustic female Bunny is the perfect match for our rustic pallet wood Easter Bunny!
She's also made entirely from boards salvaged from free shipping pallets. Using this recycled wood just makes sense...not only do you save money making this original Easter display but you also help the environment by saving trees and keeping used pallets out of landfills.
Paint our female Bunny using color washes (watered down paints) that show off the character of the salvaged pallet boards or simply with solid colors. Our plans include full-size patterns and complete instructions. Uses 2 of our 42mm Plastic Oval Eyes (#PE301) available below. (43" tall)
NOTE: Pine boards or low-cost fence boards can also be used to make this fun project in lieu of salvaged pallet boards.
20-3/4" wide x 42-3/4" tall
Approximately two standard pallets
