I’ve been seeing a lot of Easter craft projects being promoted on social media lately and one that caught my eye in particular was a Jumping Bunny Necklace I found over at Obscene Aubergine. I liked this so much that I decided to have a go at making an Easter bunny pendant myself!
Although I didn’t have any polymer clay to use, I remembered that I had some air drying clay tucked away in a cupboard. My stock of clay was around 4 years old and was a bit on the dry side but I just added a little water to it and then I was able to use it again!
To make this pendant, I rolled out a small patch of clay and sketched a bunny shape onto it with a cocktail stick. When I was happy with the shape, I used a small knife to cut out the shape and then scraped the unwanted clay away. I smoothed some of the edges off a little but I wanted this bunny to have a little texture so that it looked “furry” so to speak!
The trickiest part was putting a hole in one of the bunny’s ears as my clay was starting to dry out at this point so it kept on cracking! I left it to dry for 24 hours and then painted it with gold acrylic paint.
I tried out a few ideas for the necklace chain and ended up going with this cord and chain plaited chain in the end which I think looks lovely because it’s quite chunky and the gold chain complements the bunny perfectly!
Hope you like this Easter bunny pendant and it gives you some inspiration for your own Easter craft projects. Please subscribe to Craftaholique below to be alerted of future posts like this!
