spray paint bunny heads for place cards

Step 1: Cut out bunny heads from 1/2" mdf or plywood scraps.  Search google for bunny head clip art, print out desired shape, cut out and trace onto scrap wood.  Cut out using a scroll saw or jig saw and sand smooth.

Apply primer especially if using mdf as it wants to soak up all the paint.  Spray paint front and sides with bright pastel colored gloss spray paint.

Step 4: Trim fabric as close to edge of bunny as possible.  If your fabric starts to fray apply a small dab of decoupage to the cut edge.
