It's no secret that in this house, we love making Easter crafts. We especially love…
This is a fun little Bunny craft that looks so stinkin cute when finished!
Since it ends up being a cute 3D shape, it ends up being a fun and creative toy for the kids to play with after.
It’s all pretty simple to create too, just simply download the PDF rabbit craft template, trace out your shapes and follow along with these directions.
It makes for a fun afternoon project.
I think this year we are going to make several of them to decorate our Easter table with! It’ll be cute to add a name tag to add to each one. Then our Easter guests will have their own little bunny greeting them to brunch!
The same concept would be great for any bunny themed party as well!

Step by Step Instructions for your Easter Bunny in Grass Craft
Print out the bunny figure using our downloadable rabbit template.
Next carefully cut out your rabbit from the template, like shown below.
Now cut out the rest of the pieces from your template. This will be your rabbit’s inner ears and belly. We used pink paper, but you can use any color you like.
Glue down the bunnies inner ears and belly pieces as shown below.
Using your fine tipped markers, draw on eyes, a mouth, a nose and rosy cheeks.
Using the circular template, cut out one circle from a thin piece of cardboard, and one circle for your grass bottom. We used green paper for our grass.
Now glue down your green circle onto your thin cardboard circle to create a sturdy base for your rabbit.
Using your template, cut out the triangular grass area.
At the bottom of your zig zag cut out, make tiny vertical cuts like shown below. This will help glue your grass to its base.
Fold the areas of the grass slightly on the bottom where your cuts are to form tabs on the bottom of your grass cutout.
Now create a ring of glue on your grass bass circle, like shown below.
Starting with one of your grass cut out, start placing the tabs onto your glue, creating a standing ring of “grass” from your cut out.
Finish gluing the entire ring around your circle cut out.
Using a small piece of your cardboard, cut out a thin strip.
Now fashion it into a small triangle to use as a support of your Easter bunny.
Now glue your small triangle to the back of your bunny rabbit.
Now place your paper bunny into your grass to make sure he fits with your triangle stabilizer.
Using a hole punch, punch out a few colorful circles to use to decorate your grass. They’ll end up looking like cute little Easter eggs.
Glue your dots onto your grass.
Now you can glue your Easter bunny into your decorated grass and your all finished!
Of course, you should make a few little friends for you bunny to hang out with!
