DIY FIMO Egg bunnies
Minimalist design and Scandinavian-inspired decoration are the latest thing – and they won’t be leaving Easter behind!
These FIMOair basic and copper wire Easter bunnies are simple decorations to craft, and work just as well on shelves and tables as for place cards. The cute bunnies in simple white and on trend copper are not only easy to make – they're also real eye-catchers.
Use both hands to make several egg shaped balls around 6 cm in height out of FIMOair basic. Press the undersides flat on the work surface, so that they will be able to stand up later.
Tip: To achieve a smooth, uniform look, go over the surface once more with moistened fingers to even it out, seal any small cracks and remove fingerprints.
Tip: Work in progress and left-over material should be protected against sun and heat and stored in an airtight container.
Then shape the copper wire into rabbit ears. To do this, bend the wire to form two loops and press the middle together using flat nose pliers; then cut off the ends 1 cm from the loop using pincers.
Now push the rabbit ears into the egg shapes, and leave the bunnies at room temperature for 24 hours to dry. Once the bunnies are thoroughly dry, you can draw on the faces with the Lumocolor permanent duo marker, and your egg bunnies are done!
