Printable Bunny Candy Holder Easter Craft
How absolutely adorable is this little candy holder?! I love that I don’t have to go out and buy fancy candy bags at the store. In a pinch, I can just print and make my own! This is a super fast and easy craft to make and is ideal for printing and making with the kids. If your child has a class party or even a Sunday School Easter party happening, this is a great craft and gift.
What is the Best Way to Secure This Together?
This is really a personal choice. I used double-sided tape as it was convenient, easy, and mostly, works great. I wouldn’t recommend using glue as it is more likely to fall apart with the weight of the candy. A nice sturdy tape or even staples can be used for this project.
If you are going to be gifting these to children, you may want to use tape just in case pieces of staples could cut their little hands. You could also secure them with some cute colorful washi tape or duct tape with an Easter pattern!
How Much Candy Will Fit in This?
Since it is a simple paper candy holder, it won’t hold heavy items. For eggs like shown in the picture, I recommend no more than 10-12. Think of it as a place to hold about 1 regular sized bag of M&M’s. In some cases, it will hold a bit more, but that really depends more on the sizes of the candy.
Some great candy ideas are:
- Chocolate covered eggs
- Individually wrapped bubble gum
- Miniature candy bars
- Peeps marshmallows
- Single serving size bags of M&M’s or Skittles
- Homemade candy or fudge squares
- Snack mixes or trail mix

How to Make a Printable Bunny Candy Holder
Print out the cone-shaped Easter bunny printable.
Cut out the cone shape and the ears trimming around each piece to remove the excess paper.
Now you will add two sided tape to one side of the cone shape.
Roll the cone together connecting with the tape you already placed on the seam.
Add a festive ribbon to the bottom of the cone.
Tape or glue the ears in place on the back of the cone.
You can add glitter, sequins, ribbon, or other embellishments as desired.
Now, you can fill your bunny with candy to share!
If you want your candy cone treat holder to last longer and hold more candy, use card stock instead of regular printer paper. I love this pretty Easter printed card stock and Easter washi tape to create these for a more durable treat holder to give to kids at church.
While you are making these treat bags, you can put your kids to work on some of these amazing Easter crafts for kids and toddlers. There are also some great outdoor Easter decoration ideas on this list, and my favorite is this list of great Easter egg decorating ideas for kids.
- Print out the bunny cone shape;

- Connect the cone sealing with the double sided tape;

Make this sturdier by printing on card stock instead of copy paper.
