If you are getting ready to host an Easter party at your house, you are going to want to make some DIY decor to give your party a unique vibe. In this video tutorial, you will be transforming a regular honeycomb ball into a cute Easter Bunny to welcome your guests and celebrate the holiday.
Just a few tools and materials are needed for this project, most of which you might already have in your craft room. One unique supply that you will need is a honeycomb ball decoration made out of paper. You should be able to buy one of these ready-made at a party supply store.
I decided to use a pink honeycomb ball for my Easter bunny decoration, but you can pick any color you want. Pastels are usually best to get that perfect springtime ambience.
All materials and tools you need can be found in the list below. You also can read written directions as you follow along with the video tutorial. Let's get started crafting a honeycomb ball Easter bunny.
Honeycomb Ball Easter Bunny Step by Step Video and Photo Tutorial:
- Honeycomb ball party decoration
- White cardboard
- Pink foam sheet
- Large googly eyes
- Wooden craft stick (or tongue depressor, etc.)
- Pink pom pom
- Hot glue and glue gun
- Black marker
1. When you purchase a honeycomb ball, it may be in a collapsed form. Expand it so that it is in a ball shape.
2. Next, you will need to draw and cut out a circle shape from a piece of white cardboard. It will become the bunny’s head. The size of the circle depends on the size of the honeycomb ball you are using. In my case, I found that tracing around a CD produced the size that I needed.
3. You can set the circle aside now, but use it for reference as you sketch and cut out the shapes of two matching bunny ears, also from the white cardboard.
4. To create the inner ears, cut out the same shapes, but slightly smaller, from the pink foam sheet.
5. Glue the inner ears on top of the outer ears, and then glue the completed ears onto the circle. It will look best if you attach them at the back.
6. Now that you have the bunny's ears and head, you can create its face. To do this, glue on the googly eyes, and then glue on the pom pom as the nose. Sketch the bunny's mouth using a black marker.
7. Glue a craft stick to the back of the bunny’s head, sticking out below like a neck.
8. Insert the craft stick in through the top of the honeycomb ball so that the head rests on top.
9. Cut out the shapes of two bunny feet from the same white cardboard that you used to create the head and ears.
10. From the pink foam sheet, cut out the shapes of paw pads.
Glue the completed feet onto the base of the honeycomb ball, making sure that they will still be visible when the bunny is standing upright. That means they should be positioned somewhat in the front, not directly on the bottom.
Here's what your completed honeycomb ball Easter bunny decoration should look like:
