Coming at you today with another cute Easter craft! This one needs the use of a glue gun so it might not be a good craft for the wee ones. But it would be really cute for you to make them for the kids. 🙂
You will need a small white bucket (I found this one at the Dollar Tree store), 1 white chenille stem (aka pipe cleaner), a small piece of white cardstock, a pink marker or crayon, 2 large wiggly eyes, 1 small pink pom pom, scissors and a glue gun with a glue stick.
You’ll begin by cutting the white pipe cleaner into 4 even pieces. (Sorry for the bad lighting and that the pipe cleaner doesn’t look white. It really was white! Lol)
Continue with your project by cutting a small strip of cardstock paper between 1-2″ wide. I cut off the end of a full size sheet of cardstock (8.5″ x 11″).
Cut the strip in half and place the 2 pieces together so when you cut the paper, you will cut both pieces at the same time.
Cut out the shape of a bunny’s ear. You should end up with 2 ears the same.
Next color the inside of each ear pink, leaving a white edge on the outside.
Now it’s time to glue things together! Start by gluing on the 2 wiggly eyes on the plain side of the bucket.
Glue on the pink pom pom for the bunny’s nose.
Put some glue on one end of each piece of the white pipe cleaner and tuck the end under the pom pom. These are the bunny’s whiskers.
Glue the bottom of each ear to the front inside edge of the bucket.
Draw on the bunny’s mouth with a marker. You’ll probably need to use a permanent marker so the mouth doesn’t wipe off.
And your bunny is ready to be filled with Easter goodies! 🙂
I hope you’ll have fun making these little Easter bunny buckets and that your kids will be tickled to receive them! 🙂
