3 Crafty Easter Bunnies on a Budget

Easter is just around the corner and what better way to celebrate than by making bunny crafts on a budget? These kid-friendly crafts are bound to be a hit. Chances are, you have all the materials you need at home already! 

Paper Bunny 

This simple, yet unique craft will bring brightness to any space and makes for the perfect Easter decoration!  

You’ll need: 

  • Colourful 8.5” x 11” sheets of paper  
  • White paper 
  • Glue stick  
  • Scissors 
  • Markers  

The steps: 

  • Choose a colourful sheet of paper.
  • Cut half the sheet of paper lengthwise into six strips 
  • Take four of the pieces. Lie one piece down flat, add the second piece so they cross in the middle (like a plus sign). Glue the second piece to the first.  
  • Add the third piece so it sits diagonally. Glue it down. 
    Add the
     fouth piece diagonally, as well. Glue it down. The paper strips should look like an asterisk. Let it sit for a moment to dry. 
  • Pull the bottom piece up at both ends and glue it together. Glue the rest of the pieces together, attaching them to the first piece. It should look like a sphere with holes between each strip of paper.  

  • You’ve just made the bunny’s body! Let it sit.  
  • Take the other half of the paper and cut about 3 inches off the top. 
  • Repeat the above steps, cutting four strips, but for a smaller sphere, which will be the bunny’s head. 
  • When complete, glue it to the top of the first sphere.  
  • Take the two remaining longer strips. Bend the paper so one end meets the other, but don’t pull too tight. Leave a loop at the top. These are the ears.  
  • Bend the ears at the bottom so you can glue them to the bunny’s head. 

  • Take the white paper and cut out the bunny’s teeth and eyes.  
  • Take two colourful sheets of your choice and cut out a rounded rectangular shape and a small triangle for the nose 
  • Glue on the ears, eyes, nose and teeth.  
  • Let it sit to dry.  
  • And you’re all done!


Cloth Bunny

Have any cloths lying around that aren’t serving a purpose? They could make for a quick and easy Easter Bunny decoration.  

You’ll need: 

  • A square-shaped cloth 
  • An elastic  
  • Ribbon or a thin strip of fabric  
  • Googly eyes and a small pompom (or paper and markers) 

The steps: 

  • Place the cloth in front of you in a diamond shape. 
  • Roll the right and left side into the middle of the cloth like two cylinders, side-by-side. 
  • Fold the top end onto the bottom end.   
  • Take an elastic and pull it over the cloth. It should look like a head with two floppy ears. 
  • Cut out some eyes and a nose (or grab the googly eyes and pom pom) and glue them onto the cloth 
  • Grab the ribbon and tie it over where the elastic is sitting. Tie a bow for some extra cuteness. 
  • And you’re done! 

Sock Bunny 

Got a lone sock lying around? It doesn’t have to sit alone for long! You can make your own sock bunnies easily out of your solo socks. 

You’ll need: 

  • A sock  
  • Uncooked rice 
  • String (or embroidery floss) 
  • Scissors 
  • Markers  
  • Ribbon or thin strip of fabric 

The steps: 

  • Dump the rice into the sock, leaving a few inches of space at the top. 
  • Tie the sock tight with the string or floss.  
  • Tie the sock again near the middle. This will create the shape of the bunny’s body and head. 
  • Cut the loose string. 
  • Cut the top of the sock (above the string) down the middle to create two bunny ears. 
  • Draw the bunny’s facial features onto the sock.  

  • Optional: Cut them out with paper and glue them down. 
  • Tie the ribbon around the bunny’s neck and make a bow.  
  • Stand the bunny upright.  
  • Bunch up the rice in a circle on the back of the bunny’s body. Tie it with a string. This create’s the bunny’s tail. 


  • Cut the loose string.  
  • And you’re done!
