If your goal this year to is to stay thrifty but still creative with your DIY Easter projects, this latest video tutorial is for you! In it, you’ll learn how you can take an ordinary Styrofoam cup and transform it into a cute Easter bunny.
This project has a very low cost, thanks to the materials literally consisting of nothing more than a regular Styrofoam cup, some white cardboard or cardstock, and a pink foam craft sheet. This makes it a fun, affordable and easy Easter craft if you are on a tight budget.
You’ll notice that I listed hot glue under “Tools.” This is what I use for pretty much everything, and for me it worked fine for this craft. But I have heard some people complain that they have a hard time working with hot glue and Styrofoam.
If that is the case for you, there are glues which have been made specifically for Styrofoam which you can use for this and other Styrofoam craft projects. They come in tins, tubes and cans, and are known as “POR” and “UHU.”
I’ve also heard that yellow carpenter’s glue can work just fine on Styrofoam as well, so that may be a more mundane alternative if you happen to have some sitting around. Some folks also use white glue with Styrofoam and do not report any problems.
One type of glue which you should not use with Styrofoam under any circumstances is any form of superglue. When the two make contact, they can react in a dangerous way, reportedly releasing cyanide vapor. Obviously that is not something you want anything to do with.
Anyway, with the chemistry lesson out of the way, let’s get started on this easy and cheap Easter craft project! Below, you can find all the materials and tools which you are going to need.
Again, just go with whatever type of glue you find works best for you, so long as you don’t try superglue or any similar product.
Along with the materials and tools list, there are written instructions to go with the video tutorial. Read along as you watch, and have fun making a Styrofoam Easter bunny!
