Paper Bunny Easter Craft
Sometimes, I just want to make a super fast craft for decorating around a holiday. Instead of pulling out paints and stencils, I like to print something and use it for creating a new craft that requires minimal work. This super cute idea can be ready in just a few minutes! Since it’s a sizable bunny, it’s great for decorating both indoor and outdoor spaces.

What Stick Should I Put This On?
For this bunny, I like to use a simple wooden dowel. You can sometimes find these in the craft department, but I typically buy them at my local hardware store. In fact, the small ones like this are usually 2 for $1 at our small local hardware store. Shop around for them and usually they are under $1 for the smallest size.
If you want to make this and don’t have any on hand, you can really add this to any stick. Even one you’ve grabbed out of your yard can work if you trim it down to size and remove any extra branches.
Do I Need Special Paper for Printing My Bunny?
You don’t need any special paper for this craft. I like the idea of using card stock so it stands up a bit straighter and lasts longer, but the oy of this craft is it is so easy you can make it with any craft paper, construction paper, or even just a simple piece of copy paper.
If you want to add a bit more variety to your Easter bunny, you can even use various patterns of scrapbook paper. The idea is the same but will have a little unique background. A perfect way to add something unique to your decor that is truly personalized.

How to Make a Paper Bunny Easter Craft
Start by printing the bunny body HERE. Then, you will cut out the head shape and set aside.
Now, you will cut out the bunny body.
Once the body has been cut out, you will fold it according style.
Use your hole punch to punch through the accordion folded body as shown.
Next, you will weave your dowel rod through the holes you just punched, going back and forth as shown. Once it is on the stick, glue or tape the top in place.
Now, you will glue your bunny head onto the top of the dowel rod.
Use the twine to make a small bow, and glue it in place just below the head of the bunny.
Now, you can add a small bow or flower embellishment to one of the bunny ears.
Stick this bunny into your potted plant or garden!
If you feel like this bunny is just a little too plain, feel free to add your own unique spin. I love the idea of using some of my rainbow glitter from Today Glitter and adding it around the bunny ears and edges of the body. You could also print this in different colors of paper, or make your bow out of an Easter themed ribbon.
This DIY pom pom Easter bunny wreath is another great decoration to add to your craft list for Easter. I love that it can be made with different colors of yarn if you want. Of course, this absolutely precious flower pot Easter bunny is definitely the best on the list. So cute and fun for kids to create.
