Decoupaged Pink Damask Bunny

in Do it yourself,Seasonal Projects


Come on, Google! I dare you to get me some hits on that title! I sincerely doubt that those four words have ever been strung together before.

Edited at 2:57pm on April 8th: I have received at least 10 Google hits from people searching on decoupaged pink damask bunny. Somebody out there thinks they’re veeeeeery funny. Come on. Fess up. Who is it?

You all gave great advice yesterday on my Mod Podge problems. If anyone else feels like a fool because you can’t do the Mod Podge thing, read the comments on that post. Lots of great tips!


I used your tips and I CAN MOD PODGE! {Picture me doing a victory dance while holding my sponge brush.}

It’s entirely possible that I’m going to become a Mod Podge maniac now.


And just in case there was any doubt that I’m a complete freak, do you remember this Dollar Tree birdie?

Now he looks like this.

Yep. Freak.

Here are just a few more decoupage/Mod Podge projects:

Decoupage ceiling: Mr. Peacock
Decoupage serving tray: Craft Sylish
Clipboards: The Villa Family
Frame tutorial: Tidy Mom
Cabinet door art project: Vintage Chic Home

You’re no longer Mod Podge challenged! I knew you could do it! The bunny is super cute.
BTW, today is my 100th post and I’m doing a give-away. It involves chocolate!

Okay, I officially heart Mod Podge!!! I now have to try Nester’s toile egg and your damask bunny. SUUUUPER cute!!!

3 Handmade Housewife... April 8, 2009 at 5:26 am

LOVE the bunny!! Our dollar tree never got those cute birds. Bummer. Thanks for sharing your new addiction :)

Oh how cute!

5 Kimm at Reinvented April 8, 2009 at 5:31 am

THAT BUNNY IS FABULOUS!!! (let us know how the Google thing goes :) )

You are now a Mod Podge queen!

6 Wendy @ The Shabby Nest April 8, 2009 at 5:34 am

Welcome to the world of Mod Podge addiction! It’s a fun place to be. ;-)

7 Christi April 8, 2009 at 5:34 am

I’m totally digging the little bird’s makeover!

8 FOR THE SAKE OF TIME April 8, 2009 at 5:44 am

Good job! Now I may have to try it rather than clean out “stuff” in my basement. Do you think there might be something down there I could Mod Podge?

9 Living with Lindsay April 8, 2009 at 5:59 am

You go, girl! I love it!

10 Southern Charm April 8, 2009 at 6:10 am

I love it! I have never tried this before but I am so intrigued. I really love the birdie…. this would make a great mom/daugher project. Going to check out the comments on how to do this.

11 Michelle@Fromhousetohome April 8, 2009 at 6:11 am

They look great! Be careful, it is SO addictive. Have fun with your new found skill!

Craft store, here I come!!!!!

13 Darla April 8, 2009 at 6:23 am

Great Job!

14 Mindy April 8, 2009 at 6:27 am

That would be a mod podge victory dance!

15 Jen@Balancing Beauty and Bedlam April 8, 2009 at 6:28 am

the dollar tree bunny has got my vote…so funny…
I’ll only official crown you the Queen of Mod Podge if you try the kids…come on, I dare you. :) Double dog dare, you.

16 Kara April 8, 2009 at 6:36 am

I just bought that cute little birdy at the dollar store. Maybe I’ll have to mod podge him instead of just using my spray paint.

Thanks for the links to the other fab projects, I love them!

17 marty39 April 8, 2009 at 6:41 am

Yeah, you did it. Congratulations, the bunny is just super. Hugs, Marty

18 melissa April 8, 2009 at 6:42 am

Kimba~ I love it! Can’t wait to see what mod podge projects you come up with now. If you get a second, come over. I spray painted a plate in true Kimba style and then mod podged on top of it, all on one project. whoa…

19 Stacey @ The Blessed Nest April 8, 2009 at 6:45 am

Yay!! LOVE that pink damask bunny! Too cute, and SO much fun for spring!!

20 Risa April 8, 2009 at 6:51 am

SOO very cute little bunny.

21 Joanna April 8, 2009 at 7:00 am

Turned out great!

22 tidymom April 8, 2009 at 7:07 am

Oh those are TOO cute!! I’ve been having so much fun with Mod Podge – I’ll have to give this a try!!
That bunny is to DIE for!!

~TidyMom

Thanks for the linky love too!!

23 Runner Mom April 8, 2009 at 7:07 am

You, darlin’ girl, are a hoot and a half! I can just see you doing a hapy victory dance with brush in hand!!

Hugs,
Susan

24 Songbirdtiff April 8, 2009 at 7:12 am

I love the new improved birdie! Just when I thought it wouldn’t get any better…

25 Laura Ingalls Gunn April 8, 2009 at 7:18 am

Oh I love the damask bunny! I might have to invest in a sponge brush.

On the 2nd of two posts that are on my blog today I have included the phrase “A soft place to land”.
Grab you kiddo’s, you will want to show them the teeny tiny occupants currently residing on my patio chandelier. :)

26 Nikki April 8, 2009 at 7:39 am

That is the cutest bunny I have ever seen, and I don’t usually get into bunnies.

27 patty April 8, 2009 at 8:03 am

really cute, and i have a ton of tissue-type paper just sittin’ here waitin’ to be used…. yikes~

28 Pretty Organizer April 8, 2009 at 8:23 am

Cracking up at the flurry of mod-podge chatter you’ve managed to stir up! I had the same issue this Christmas in making my Pretty Organizers. Holy cow… who knew paper bubbled like that. I’d get everything in place then the bubbles would start. The dang thing was that I’d go to craft shows and there were plenty of ladies who “got it” and had perfectly smooth mod-podge projects. I was told… light coats and let the coats dry completely before adding another layer… especially between bottom and top coats.

Crazy… Keep up the sacreligious cover up projects! Good to know there’s someone else out there who doesn’t care if somethings glass, wood, plastic or paper. I’ll resurface anything now days! I think it’s just craft conscious recycling… very green and good for the environment… except the occasional global warming it creates under my husband’s collar when I get to real wood.

Love ya girl:)

29 HeathahLee April 8, 2009 at 8:35 am

Oh, my little Kimba birdie! You know, Sound Man was cleaning out our guest room and found AAAALLLL those birds I bought with all the best intentions of painting them red and using them at Christmas. They are still in their tan Dollar Tree glory. Sigh….maybe this Christmas… : )

Your bunny is a beauty!

30 Misty April 8, 2009 at 8:49 am

LOVE the bunny! I am decopauging eggs today!

31 Amanda @ Serenity Now April 8, 2009 at 8:51 am

Oo la la! You did a great job–maybe I can give it a try now too. :)

32 mishebe April 8, 2009 at 8:54 am

Wow! Awesome job. Mishelle

33 Darlene - Our Creative Life April 8, 2009 at 9:02 am

Uh Oh, nothing is safe now in your home from the Decoupage Queen! LOL

34 ~nanashouse~ April 8, 2009 at 9:11 am

Dear Freak, aka Kimba
Kudos to you! The dollar store find is absolutely beautiful!

It would look great on my hutch ;-)

35 frillsfluffandtrucks April 8, 2009 at 9:23 am

Congrats! The bunny is adorable! I blogged my decoupage eggs today too. I’m glad you figured out Mod Podge! :)

~ Sarah

36 Pam April 8, 2009 at 9:45 am

Yay – so happy for you! I just did my first mod podge project this week, too. I can seriously see how this could get addicting. Your projects turned out great. But I reeeeealy like the bunny. What a fun project!

37 Jill April 8, 2009 at 9:54 am

I am so in love with the bunny & birdie! See Mod podge can be your new friend :)
-Jill

38 Lou Cinda April 8, 2009 at 12:01 pm

Lou Cinda :)

39 Melia April 8, 2009 at 12:34 pm

Those turned out great!! I love the pink damask bunny!

40 new every morning April 8, 2009 at 12:47 pm

What an adorable bunny! The pink is perfect!!!

Is it fabric?

41 Kim @ Forever Wherever April 8, 2009 at 1:31 pm

The bunny looks great! I’m sure I can find a few things to Mod Podge around here. I bought some a couple months ago, but I’ve been putting it off. Thanks for the motivation.

~Kim

42 Southern Fried Gal April 8, 2009 at 1:38 pm

Cute! And I love how the pattern on the bunny’s head looks like it has an eye – or am I just really weird?

43 Jill April 8, 2009 at 2:13 pm

uh-oh, look out world, she’s on a roll now!

44 Sarah Mae April 8, 2009 at 2:27 pm

Haha…you are a cool freak though! :)

45 Trudi April 8, 2009 at 2:50 pm

The bunny is darling Kimba. I picked up some ugly birds at the dollar store and I’m going to paint them white. It just needs to warm up a bit here. I wish my school and a spray paint center, but it doesn’t.

46 jenjen April 8, 2009 at 3:33 pm

Look at you! You CAN mod podge. You are a pro! I love that bunny and the bird is adorable!

Great job Kimba!

XOXO
Jen

47 Lisa April 8, 2009 at 4:12 pm

Sweet pink decoupaged bunny! I just decoupaged a hatbox. I think we are single handedly helping the economy buying all this Mod Podge!

48 Mr. Peacock April 8, 2009 at 4:56 pm

Hello Kimba…
Great posting! I really love the bunny!
Your blog is wonderful too!
Thanks for the shout-out link!
Happy decoupaging!

49 Anonymous April 8, 2009 at 4:59 pm

Okay, fess up, does Alan think you’ve completely gone over the edge at this point? :-)

50 Ramona April 8, 2009 at 6:03 pm

This is the cutest thing on the planet! Great post!

Smiles ~ Ramona

51 blessdtwice April 8, 2009 at 8:13 pm

I just have to know more about the bunny! Is that fabric, or a napkin…and where did you get the bunny?! TOO CUTE! Very proud of you for conquering your mod-podge fear!

52 Jessica April 8, 2009 at 11:12 pm

Anyone who know me, knows I love bunnies. This is just about the cutest bunny I’ve ever seen!
And I thought your decoupaged eggs were just fine…but this “Decoupaged Pink Damask Bunny” is tooooo cuuuute! I must have one! Must, must, must!!
GREAT JOB, KIMBA!

53 Amanda April 9, 2009 at 6:30 am

Your bunny and bird are absolutely adorable! I may try being crafty after seeing your cute little creations.

54 Rachel April 9, 2009 at 8:26 am

Martha Stewart was doing Mod Podge eggs this morning on her show, and I thought of you.

55 Ashlee April 9, 2009 at 8:36 am

I just came on to give you my Mod Podge tips, but you’ve already figured it out!!!! I LOVE THAT BUNNY! Thanks for mentioning my Mod Podge project the other day. I love the stuff. Want to cover all my walls and countertops with it!

56 Amber April 9, 2009 at 7:40 pm

Isn’t it exciting to finally figure something out that has been giving you fits?!

So, do you have an addictive personality? First spray paint, and now modge podge? ;) (I mean that in a totally kidding funny way…not in a “mean comment” way!) :) I can sometimes depending on what it is!

57 Jo - To a Pretty Life April 9, 2009 at 9:30 pm

Aw, your new little friends are adorable! I’ve only tried mod podge once, on a journal. I’d love to try it on something 3-D!

58 Puna April 10, 2009 at 4:56 am

Cute bunny!

59 Sandra Schwab April 10, 2009 at 5:27 am

I have no idea what Mod Podge means (on account of me being a poor little non-native speaker of English), but I love your pink decoupaged bunny. It’s very cute!

And now I’m off to google Mod Podge …

Best wishes from Germany,
Sandy

That bunny is fabulous! Mod Podge! I love it.

Happy Easter!

62 Julia @ Hooked on Houses April 11, 2009 at 2:48 pm

I haven’t used Mod Podge since I was a kid. I always loved the name of it–”Mod Podge.” Wonder who came up with that?

Too funny that you’re getting Google hits for decoupaged pink damask bunny!

So glad you joined my party this week, Kimba. Always great to have you with us. Happy Easter!! :-)

63 amybluestar April 20, 2009 at 4:45 pm

66 Xazmin April 30, 2009 at 9:09 am

I already said I love the bunny, but I REALLY love the bird!

Isn’t Mod Podge the best?

67 Rebecca July 30, 2009 at 7:10 am

please oh please post a tute on how you did this! it looks so super fantastic!! how in the world did you get the design to be 'unbroken'?
LOVE

68 Happy Together July 30, 2009 at 9:22 am

Super cute and not too terribly time consuming looking. I'm going to try it on something. I sent a link to this to Mod Podge Rocks (http://modpodgerocks.blogspot.com/). It's a whole blog dedicated to all things mod podge

69 goldfine August 1, 2009 at 8:46 am

This is adorable but I am confused as to how you covered the bunny…did you use paper or fabric? One large piece? This seems a big leap from flat surfaces!

70 Kimba August 1, 2009 at 8:50 am

For anyone who is curious…This was done with pink damask wrapping paper. I ripped the paper into little pieces and decoupaged them on one piece at a time. It was tedious, but not difficult.
