Are you looking for an easy way to decorate around the house for the Easter holiday? In my newest video tutorial, you will find out how you can take an ordinary clothespin and turn it into an adorable bunny.
There are several reasons I think you're going to have a great time with this DIY Easter project. First of all, I am willing to wager that you already have most or even all of the supplies required on hand at home. Secondly, if there is anything you need to purchase, it will be really cheap.
Thirdly, this Easter craft project is incredibly versatile. It only takes a few minutes to turn a clothespin into an Easter bunny, and once you do, you can use that bunny to decorate in all sorts of creative ways.
Ready to get started on this easy Easter craft? Below, you can find all the materials and tools which you need. There are also written instructions to go along with the video tutorial. Enjoy!
Step by step tutorial with instructions:
- White paint
- White cardboard or cardstock
- Pink marker
- Black pen
- Hot glue and glue gun
- The first step is to cut a small circle out of white cardboard, cardstock, or paper. Obviously, cardstock or cardboard will be less flimsy than paper, making it a better choice. If you need help making your circle round, trace around a round object such as the lid from a jar or bottle. This circle will become the bunny’s head, so size it accordingly.
- Your next step is to draw the bunny’s face on the circle. You can use a pink marker to draw the nose and a black pen for the rest. Once you have completed this step, the bunny’s face will be ready, and you can move onto the clothespin.
- Using a small paintbrush, cover the entirety of the clothespin in white paint. The reason you will need a small brush for this is so that you can get into all the nooks and crannies. A large brush may not be able to reach everywhere effectively.
- Wait for the paint to dry completely on the clothespin.
- Once the paint has dried, get the pink marker again and use it to draw little triangles on the clothespin ends. These become the bunny’s ears.
- With hot glue (or regular Elmer’s glue—that should work just fine here), attach the bunny’s face onto the clothespin. Make sure that you orient it properly so that the ears are emerging from the top of its head.
- Now that your clothespin bunny is finished, you can display it however you want. You can easily make a few of these in quick succession, especially if you handle the steps in batches (i.e. paint a bunch of clothespins white, then move on to drawing a bunch of bunny faces, then draw the pink on the ears, then glue the faces all on, etc.).
Kids can get into this easy project too, so it makes a great choice for some family fun on a weekend, or for a classroom project!
