Here are my lawn decorations for Easter. They are about 24in high plywood painted chocolate bunnies and eggs.  They store up nice and flat and were so much fun to do. Basically find an image, in this case stickers and clip art, and then photocopy, and enlarge it to the size you want. Cut the template, trace on the wood, cut, paint, varnish and attach lawn stakes.yey! You're Done!

Here's a close up of one side:


Here's a better shot of the eggs:


Here's showing all 4 bunnies and 4 eggs. I made the bunnies in sets of 2 so they face each other.


Here's the back of one of the eggs, showing the pipe strapping which holds the 8in. stake.


Thanks for looking!
