Diane explains how you can create a cute bunny craft by recycling any container with a lid. Diane used an instant, flavored coffee can but you can use any container that has a lid. Your finished bunny can be used to hold Easter treats.

  • Age Guideline: 6 Years and Up
  • Time Required: 30 minutes (Does not include drying time)

The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.

Materials Needed:

Start out by painting your container white. Let it dry.

Cut ear shapes out of white felt. Cut smaller ear shapes out of pink felt and glue them on the center of each white ear. Glue the completed ears to the outside, top edge of the container. Make sure the lid is on when you do this so you can glue the ears just below the lid so it can be taken off and on.

Glue two white pom-poms onto the container to be the bunny's cheeks. Glue a smaller pink pom-pom onto the cheeks to be the bunny's nose. Cut four whiskers, about 2-inches long, from the chenille stem. Glue them on just behind the bunny's checks. Glue on two wiggle eyes.

For a finishing touch, decorate the top of the pot with ribbon or a bow. Once all of the glue is dry, you can fill the bunny with Easter grass and treats.
