How to make bunny paw prints

Updated April 17, 2017

Creating bunny paw prints can be a magical way to decorate for kids. Place bunny paw prints on and around Easter baskets to add an extra air of creativity. Decorate a child's room with bunny paw prints for a Peter Rabbit feeling, or add bunny paw prints to a lunch box or backpack for a cuddly, cute look. The best way to create the prints without painstakingly drawing every part of every print is to create a stamp.

Lay the brillo pad on a table or other flat surface.

Use the scissors to cut out three irregular oblong ovals approximately 3/8-inch horizontally and 5/8-inch vertically. The oval circumference should not be perfect , but should be slightly warped in places.

Use the scissors to cut one irregular shaped circle approximately one inch in diameter. The outer edge of the circle should be uneven.

Glue the large circle to the wooden block at the bottom of one side of the square, in the centre of the side.

Space the other three ovals on the block 1/4-inch above the large circle, about 1/4-inch apart.

Glue the ovals to the block.

Allow the block to dry overnight.

Line the plate with cling film to cover it completely.

Pour paint in the centre of the plate, enough to cover an area of about six inches in diameter.

Dip the block into the paint lightly, circles facing down.

Press the block lightly on a piece of paper or clean surface to leave a bunny paw print.

Wash the block thoroughly after each use.
