Supplies –

  • plastic bunnies
  • pliers
  • needle nose pliers
  • gold spray paint
  • drill with a 1/32″ drill bit
  • wire or old ornament hooks

Drill little holes in the tops of your bunnies, holding them securely with the pliers. Be extra careful to let the drill bit do the work – it is a thin drill bit and if you press too hard it could snap. Also, when you reach your depth, keep the drill spinning as you pull straight out. This makes it easier to remove the drill.

I formed the wire before painting, but you can do it after, too. Straighten your ornament hook, or cut a small length of wire about 2 inches.

Grab the end of the wire in the needle nose pliers and wrap, leaving about 3/4 of the length straight. This will be inserted in the bunny, creating a holder for the place card. Spray paint the bunnies gold outside on a piece of cardboard, using about 3 thin coats. Let dry after each coat. For each coat, lay the bunnies on varying sides, to ensure you get good coverage around those little ears and feet.

If the Easter bunny isn’t a party animal, then I don’t know who is! Here is my take on the golden egg hunt: there are a bazillion plastic animals out there, find an awesome one you like, paint it gold and hide him in a plastic egg. Who ever finds it in the hunt, wins a special prize. Either way, these little plastic bunnies are pretty cute gilded.
