It’s amazing how simple every day objects can be transformed into something cute and creative in a matter of minutes. You’ll only need a few common craft supplies to make this Paper Plate Easter Bunny Craft. It doesn’t take long to brighten our kitchen for Easter! Here’s how to make a Paper Plate Easter Bunny Craft:
PAPER PLATE EASTER BUNNY CRAFT
- School glue
- Glue gun and glue stick
- 3 pipe cleaners for the whiskers
- 2 medium or large googly eyes
- 2 paper plates
- black marker
- 6 cotton balls
- 1/2 sheet of light pink craft felt
- Stapler and staples
First, take one of the paper plates and cut it into thirds, like shown. You won’t need the middle piece. The two sides will become bunny ears.
Next, using scissors cut out of the light pink craft felt a shape that is smaller than the ears. This will become the inner part of the Easter bunny ear. I just eye-balled it. Once you get the shape right, cut out an identical shape from the light pink felt. Glue to paper plate ears with the school glue, like shown.
Now lets work on the Easter bunny head! Take the other paper plate and glue a small heart shape onto the middle of the plate with the school glue.
Take your 3 pipe cleaners and glue them just under the nose with the hot glue gun. Older children can probably do this part on their own, but a grown up will need to help younger kids. Bend the top and bottom whiskers slightly.
Then glue the cotton balls onto the pipe cleaners with school glue, like shown below. We used 3 cotton balls on each side.
Using the school glue, adhere the googly eyes onto the Easter bunny. Then take a black marker and draw the mouth and teeth.
Finally, you can attach the ears to your Easter bunny with a single staple per ear. For a finishing touch I used the remaining light pink felt and added a little bow tie for our Easter bunny. I also rounded out the top of my bunny’s ears.
Isn’t this Paper Plate Easter Bunny Craft so adorable?! We hope you have much making him as we did!
