Laura Ashley wallpaper and sample pot of paint. The cost of the paint and paper mache bunny for project cost me less than £10. Laura Ashley's range of paints coordinate with their wallpaper collections. I chose to use Chalk Pink paint with Abbeville Pink Wallpaper and Geranium Pale Topaz Green Floral Wallpaper. Both this wallpapers have elements of the chalk pink colour included in their flower designs.

STEP ONETraced the bunny shape onto the wallpaper. I aligned the bunny shape on the Abbeville Pink wallpaper so that a flower would act as pink nose and flower as a pink tail. This bunny is facing right.
I aligned the Geranium Pale Topaz Green Floral Wallpaper so bunny was facing left and use the flower details on the ears and lower half of the bunny.
STEP TWOPainted the edges of the paper mache bunny with Chalk Pink Paint. A sample pot is perfect for this project. Painted outside and dried in the sunshine.
Cut out bunny shapes from wallpaper. Lay cutout on bunny shape and trim the paper until the exact shape of the paper mache bunny.
Use some craft glue to cover back of wallpaper bunny with thin layer of glue. Depending on glue, you may want a wait a few seconds to allow the glue to become tacky. Gently align wallpaper bunny on paper mache shape. A damp cloth can remove any excess glue on edges or on wallpaper.
Enjoy your new bunny decoration. This is a quick project to do during children's naptime or during the evening with a cup of tea.
