About This Class

For Easter I created a special Skillshare Class for you: on how to make these cute concrete and copper Easter bunnies.

If you've never worked with concrete or cement, I recommend watching my first class on how to make concrete cups first. It explains everything you need to know to get started crafting with this material.

Hope you have a great Easter and if you follow the DIY instructions, please share them in the project list!

Happy crafting!

Transcripts

1. Intro: Hi, guys. It's me, Sarah from the block. Luke Woodham eight dot com Today I'm gonna show you how to make these copper and concrete Easter bunnies. They're perfect for any Easter table or just is a tiny present. They can also easily stand up by themselves. Or you could just place them anywhere you want. And now I'm gonna show you what you need. 2. Supplies: and this is what we need, Cement. We're actually not gonna discomfort, because comfort is basically sand mixed with cement. And we don't We don't want this rough texture that concrete makes, but we want to make something more smooth. So I'm gonna use three parts off cement here and a little bit more than one part of water. This makes the whole make sure it more running, which makes it easier to work with. Then we need flown out eggs. I'm gonna use only two, but it can make its many conflict bonuses you like. Then we need to cope a wire way. Need tongues this hard to bend the wire, and this times are to cut it off. Then we need some body tape, a Sharpie and a knife. This is it. 3. Prepare Egg: Now we're gonna prepare to eggs for this. Take one off dust blown out eggs, and now we're gonna make the holes of little picket. This one already has a decent sized hole. This makes it easier to pour the concrete into the egg, and this is what we're gonna do. So on this side, it's a little bit small. This could be the bottom because it can't see We didn't want to want to stand up. It already send up. So this would be a decent horse, But I'm gonna make it a little bit bigger. So the rounds off the egg doesn't keep it from standing up properly. Just take a knife for your fingers and just break a little bit away. It is very carefully, as you can see there. Trump's coming up, so this will be a perfectly prepared X is a big hole on the top to pour the concrete in. And there's a big hole in the bottom, which makes it easier to stand up. No, we need to wash tape and we're just going to use it. We're just going to use it to close the hole, make sure it's all closed like this. Just gonna use one more just to make sure there's no concrete coming out person. So he is still stands asperity. I'm gonna use tonight down now. Do this for every egg that you want to feel. 4. Create Ears: loving and prepared years for dependence. Remember, this is the look that we're going for. So let's take the couple wire, straighten it first and then for hope you can see is probably form one year big don't burning then bent the wire up again and big. Don't get so like this. This is the first stage. Then we take the tones, picked his part in the middle. I just for shit close together. If something like this I'm just gonna been in words and in words that so this is what did she look like now, then takes the times to get cup wire and got it. Oh, so this is what it should look like. Now you have to have a little bit spare wire, period the bottom because we're going to stick it into the concrete so it pulls up years. I just did it again, and I should have to definitely reform years 5. Mix Cement And Make Bunnies: no extra comfort and take this concrete in a plastic bowl. This is easier because it scratches a little bit the bowl and plastic. Just make it easier to mix. Now pour in the water We have to work with here because it's hard, really fast. So have got the eggs ready already. Nexus and their slip as it continues. But this is a picture for makes it all together back in through the charts. The test, the North's who can easily were it. Take those eggs and they're not. Carefully fill it up all the way to the top that shake it. A little sort of bubbles are coming to the top. Now. Let that dry for about 10 to 15 minutes. So the concrete is a little hardened, but not too firm. And now all there's left to do is quick discovered years and to death a little hardened concrete. Palin's it. It's Ryan one. Now let this dry for 24 hours 6. Peel the Egg: So now it's 24 hours later, and please complete bunnies have been drying him the eggshells. So now it's time to pee. First we're gonna remove the bash. This is it. Slowly peel off the action. - So this is what dried concrete is the bunny slope like Now, after 24 hours, as it can see, they're still quite dark. But they will dry up quickly afterwards. No, I can't. In comparison with a longer gold meat concrete, Easter Bunny looks like and one that's freshly made. So you can see this is now the nice picture, and I look the color off concrete and this one is still a little bit. 7. Finishing Touches: So now all that's left to do is make a face with a Sharpie. You can already do that with the concrete that still wet if it were to try it on leave. - And once you've painted all the faces on your concrete bunnies, you're done and you can start decorating.
