Have you ever tried a new-to-you product and wondered how you lived without it?  I bought a lot of Martha Stewart Flocking Powder on clearance last year, unsure of what I’d do with it.  I started playing around with it and I’m hooked.  It’s such a fun product to work with!  I like using it on cards, but I especially like the look achieved when added to craft basics:  it looks like a cuddly, plush toy!  Here’s how you can turn paper mach eggs into adorable flocked bunnies.

Project Estimate:

  • Large Paper Mache Egg – $1
  • Flocking Powder – $2
  • Paint – on hand
  • Glue – on hand
  • Eyes – on hand
  • Felt – on hand

Total:  $3

Step one:  Paint the egg in a color similar to the flocking powder you plan to use.

Step two:  Cut ears from felt and glue them on.

Step three:  Cover the egg with glue (I used Mod Podge) and sprinkle flocking powder on top.  I like to press the powder in before gently tapping the excess off.  Once it dries, I like to paint over it and add a second layer of powder, but that’s optional.

Step four:  Glue on eyes and feet cut from felt.  For the nose and whiskers, learn how to make them in this tutorial.

I made a little grass nest for one bunny to sit in, and you can find that tutorial here.  These bunnies make adorable table or mantle decor.  There are lots of different colors of flocking powder to choose from, so you can make your bunnies in lots of colors.  Have fun crafting and creating!
