These plaster of Paris Easter Bunnies are such an easy and quick DIY.
What you need
- Plaster of Paris powder *
- Bowl and spoon
- Empty yoghurt cups
- Crafting pipe cleaners *
- Coloured pom poms *
- Decor pens
Before mixing your plaster of Paris you want to prepare the bunny ears. Take a piece of crafting pipe cleaner and shape it into two ears like in the below picture.
Once you’re happy with that you can start mixing your plaster of Paris. For that, put some of your plaster of Paris powder in a bowl, add water (roughly 3:1) and mix well until you get a smooth consistency. You don’t want your mixture to be too thick or thin so you can pour it nicely into the yoghurt cups.
Spoon the mixture into your yoghurt cup(s) and gently tap the cup a few times to make sure the mixture is even at the top. Then take your bunny ears and press them gently into the plaster into the middle of the cup. They shouldn’t need to be held in place if you’ve got the right consistency of plaster of Paris.
Let them dry and cut off the yoghurt cup. I let mine dry for roughly 2 hours just to be on the safe side but you could probably take them out sooner.
I suggest cleaning your bowl and spoon straight away before the plaster dries out.
You can then paint on the faces and glue on a pom pom for the tail and you’ve got yourself some lovely plaster of Paris Easter bunnies.
