To begin making the cork bunny, gather all supplies. Lay out 27 corks on your work surface. Three corks, four corks, five corks, six corks, then five corks, and four corks.
Attach the corks together in rows using a glue gun and glue sticks. Then stack and glue the rows together as follows: three corks, four corks, five corks, six corks, then five corks, and four corks.
If using liquid craft glue, hold the corks together with a rubber band during the drying process.
Create the top of the rabbit’s head, lay out two additional rows of corks on your work surface. The first with five corks and the second with six corks.
Attach the corks together in rows using a glue gun and glue sticks. Then stack and glue the row of five on top of the row of four, and the row of six on top of the row of five.
For each of the Rabbit’s ears, layout eight corks on your work surface. Three corks, three corks, and two corks. Attach the corks together in rows using a glue gun and glue sticks.
Then stack and glue the rows together, off set and angled to the left, using the photo as your guide. Attach to the left side of the Rabbit’s head with a glue gun and glue sticks. Repeat the above steps, angling the three rows of corks to the right, and then glue to the right side of the Rabbit’s head.
Using the photo as your guide, paint eight of the ends of the corks with light pink acrylic craft paint using a paintbrush.
Paint the remaining ends of the corks with white acrylic craft paint. Let all paint dry, and apply a second coat, if necessary.
