Easter crafts don’t have to be complicated. They can be super thrifty, fast, easy and fun. In this video tutorial, find out how you can make an Easter bunny candy holder using regular construction paper.
Whether you are looking for a fun kids’ activity for your classroom or for your own children at home on a rainy spring day, this project is the perfect choice.
In this video tutorial, we will be making bunny candy holders for Easter using construction paper. Aside from the construction paper itself and a pom-pom, all you are going to need is a black marker, a pencil, a pair of scissors, and hot glue and a glue gun or a different glue product of your choice (such as a glue stick or liquid glue).
You do not need to use the same colors that I did. I just have listed them with the materials below as an example. You can pick any colors of construction paper you would like, as well as any color of pom-pom. Do make sure you have a little bit of white paper for the bunny’s teeth.
If you have your materials and supplies ready, we can go ahead and get crafting! Watch the video tutorial and read the written directions as you follow along.

This project does not have you creating any sort of bottom for your tube of construction paper. So this is a candy holder designed to be sitting upright, for example on a desk. If you try to carry candy in it, unless your hand is on the bottom, the candy will just fall right through.

The best type of candy to store in this particular Easter bunny candy container is anything tall, for example, candy bars. These will stick out enough at the top that people will be able to see that there is candy inside your container.
Plus, small candies would not really be practical for this candy holder. Any time you wanted to move the container, you’d have to be very careful not to spill everything out the bottom.
Where can you put one of these candy holders? The answer is, of course, “anywhere.” But I think that one would look particularly cute sitting on your desk at work or in the classroom.
In these environments, you not only can use the bunny as a candy holder but as a pen holder as well.

I mentioned that I thought that the bunny candy holder you just learned how to make might make a nice decoration for a desk at work. Another work-friendly DIY Easter décor project which you may want to check out as well is this one to make a colorful candy vase.
Another way you can spruce up a desk (or any other item of furniture you want to decorate for Easter) is to turn any photograph of your child into a cute Easter bunny.
