Instructions Print

Step 1
Paint all the unfinished wood pieces using Cement acrylic paint. Let dry. Add a second coat if needed. Let dry. 
Step 2
Follow the directions on the packaging for the liquid gilding and dip the end of the foam brush into the jar. Run the brush along all the straight edges of the wood plaques, wood block and basswood canvas. Embellish the pedestals as well, if desired. Let dry 
Step 3
Once the paint is dry, glue the larger wood plaque and basswood canvas to the pedestals, centering, with the hollow side facing up. 
Step 4
Using the wire cutter, cut the grid on the back side of the grass greenery mats to fit into the hollow portion of the large wood plaque and the basswood canvas. Lay them in place. 
Step 5
Cut the other mat to fit on top of the medium wood plaque. This mat will lie on the top of the plaque and not into the back of it like the other two. 
Step 6
Cut flowers and stems off the Ranunculus stems and place into the grass on the two pedestals. Pull colored foil eggs off the pick and place onto the grass. You can pull out grass sections if desired to set the eggs into the grass deeper. Add a Gold egg or two. 
Step 7
Before placing the large foil bunny on the medium plaque, remove some of the leaves from the mat by pulling them off to make room for it to sit. If necessary, use the wire cutter to remove any plastic sticking up so you have a flat surface. 
Step 8
Place a mini foil bunny on the wood block. Arrange all of the pieces as shown, or as desired. 
Step 9
Choose a ribbon from the value pack and tie a bow around the large bunny's neck. Trim ends evenly on either side of the bow.
