A Cute Easter Bunny For The Holidays

Do you remember those Easter Egg hunts you went on as a child?

I certainly do, and I also remember the charming if not unbelievable stories of the Easter Bunny hiding all those eggs.

With this craft you can give some of that fun to your children by helping them make their own wood craft Easter Bunny.



Holiday Craft Easter Bunny Supplies

Wood Craft Easter Bunny Supply List

Shown in the image inset is the cute little Easter Bunny you can make by following the instructions on this webpage.

For all of its charm, this little bunny is very basic in construction, and your kids will enjoy making it.

Here's the list of supplies for making an Easter Bunny
  • Two 1 3/4 inch long, thin wood oval shapes
  • A 1 inch diameter wood ball
  • A 1 1/4 inch wood ball with center hole
  • A 3/8 inch wood ball
  • Two 3/4 inch wide flower petal wood shapes
  • Two small Accents Eggs
  • A length of 1/8 inch ribbon
  • Delta snow
  • For the oval wood pieces, I use pieces that come in wood shape assortments. A bag or two of these gives incredible crafting possibilities. If you shop for them, look for wood shapes.

    The Easter Bunny Feet

    The short fat oval shapes are used to make the Easter Bunny's feet.

    Glue them on the bottom of the large wood ball as shown. Notice that while the hole isn't really needed, balls with holes usually have a flat area round the hole, perfect for gluing the feet.

    Next, glue the 1 inch ball to the 1 1/4 inch ball as shown above.

    Then glue the long wooden ovals to the sides of the top ball, making the Easter Bunny's droopy ears.

    It's starting to look like a bunny, no?



    The Finished Wood Craft Easter Bunny

    Split the 3/8 inch ball and glue on the front of the bottom ball as small front paws.

    Next, give the bunny a coat of white paint.

    When the paint is try, give the bunny a coat of Delta snow to give a textured look.

    With a felt tip pen, toothpick, or small brush, paint on a face.

    Glue on the Accent eggs just above the little bunny's paws (as if he's carrying them).

    Finally, add a necktie of colorful ribbon.
