Ready to celebrate springtime and Easter with a cheap, fun, easy craft? In this video tutorial, you will be learning how you can make an Easter bunny decoration out of cardboard and other basic supplies. This cute Easter project is easy to customize, so you’ll have a chance to let your creativity shine.
There are a number of materials and tools you’re going to need for this project, but most of them are pretty standard, and likely already in your craft room.
You’ll notice that under the “materials” list, I call for brown cardboard and white cardboard or paper.
The brown cardboard is going to be the body of your bunny. The white is going to be used for the paws as well as the bunny’s hair.
Because you’ll be gluing the white cardboard on top of the brown cardboard, you’ll find that it is easiest if the white cardboard is thinner and flimsier than the brown cardboard you are using for the base.
Do you have to go with brown and white? Nope! I picked these colors because they were easy to come by and contrast well, but you can go with any colors of cardboard you want. I’d pick natural bunny colors (i.e. brown, black, grey, white, etc.) or “Easter” colors (pastels).
You’re going to need fabric and a ribbon for this project too. Here, you have full freedom as well to pick any colors or patterns you want. Once again, I recommend that you go with something light, cheerful, and suitable for springtime. But there are no rules with art, so go any direction you want with this.
I used hot glue and a glue gun for this project as I always do. But you don’t have to if you prefer to go with liquid glue or a glue stick. The materials you’re using for this project should glue together fine, regardless.
Finally, if you have thinner cardboard, you might get away with a pair of scissors instead of a precision cutting tool, but it’s up to you. You’ll get cleaner lines with a scalpel, and make the steps that involve cutting a lot easier.
Now that we’ve talked about the materials and tools a bit, you can find the full list of both below. You’ll also find written instructions to go with the video. Let’s get started making our cardboard Easter bunnies!
Step by Step Tutorial with Detailed Instructions:
You have now crafted a lovely Easter bunny decoration out of cardboard and other thrifty, simple supplies! As you can see, this project didn’t even take a lot of steps.
Because regular glue can be used for this project, it’s a good project for adults and kids of all ages. Even small children can enjoy it, so long as they are old enough to use scissors or a cutting tool safely.
It’s also a fun project for kids to express their personalities and imaginations. Children will have a great time creating lots of Easter bunny decorations with different clothing, body and hair colors, expressions, and so on.
They may even enjoy playing with the bunnies as toys rather than just displaying them.
