Customize any basket this Easter by adding a little spray paint and a personalized dry erase bunny! 

PREPARE: Always work in a well-ventilated area, such as a garage. Use your drop cloth to protect surrounding areas from any possible overspray. 

Basket: Lightly sand basket to remove any loose paint and allow for proper spray paint adhesion. Tape off the handle of the basket, which you’ll paint last. Shake your can of
Rust-Oleum 2X Ultra Cover spray paint can for one minute after the mixing ball begins to rattle.

Bunny: Lightly sand the wooden bunny cut out, then wipe it down with a lint-free cloth to remove any remaining dirt or dust.

APPLY: Now it’s time to paint the basket and bunny.

Baskets: Spray paint the base of the basket in a steady, back-and-forth motion, slightly overlapping each stroke. Apply two or more light coats a few minutes apart. Once the base has been painted and has fully dried, remove the tape from the handle and cover the base with tape or a cloth. Spray paint the handle with your secondary spray paint color in the same fashion. Allow the paint to fully dry before handling.

Bunnies: Open your Rust-Oleum Dry Erase Paint and briefly stir Parts A & B separately. Once stirred, pour Part A into Part B. Then stir thoroughly until the paint is uniform in color. Apply 2 coats of the Dry Erase paint with a foam brush and allow it to fully cure for 3 days before writing on the surface.

FINISH: Once your basket and bunny have had a chance to fully dry, attach the bunny to the basket with a strong glue.

TIP: Shake your spray paint can occasionally during application.
