If you want to keep crafting easy, cheap and fun, it is hard to go wrong with construction paper crafts. In today’s video tutorial, you will be making a cute Easter bunny out of construction paper and a few other simple materials.
For this project, you are going to need a few different tools, but only a couple of materials. You will need a couple of sheets of construction paper. I chose to go with green, but you can pick any color you want.
Your Easter bunny is going to need some eyes. I chose to use black faux pearls for mine, but you could also pick beads, buttons, or anything else which springs to mind.
Alternately, if you do not have any of these supplies handy, you could simply draw on the eyes with a black marker.
Context-wise, it is useful to know before embarking on this project that our completed bunny will be standing in profile rather than looking directly at us, and will be in an upright, running position.
Find all of the materials and tools you need listed below along with written instructions to go along with the easy Easter craft video tutorial.
Step by Step Video and Photo Tutorial
After you have finished crafting your paper Easter bunny, you can set it up anywhere as a decoration for the holiday.
I would like to note that this is a great project to do with kids. Firstly, it is relatively easy, and it is possible to substitute liquid glue or a glue stick for hot glue when working with younger children.
Secondly, it teaches important principles of symmetry, rather like making paper snowflakes does for Christmas.
In fact, if you wanted to challenge your kids or yourself, once you have learned how to make a paper Easter bunny in this fashion, you could try to figure out designs for making other critters.
