Finished project.This is a cute project to make with your children. It would also be a great gift for the Easter Bunny to deliver to grandparents! Inexpensive and fun to make! Finished project.

Approximate Time: 1 hour plus drying time


  • foam (dark pink, light pink, white, and assorted colors for eggs)
  • beads (assorted colors)
  • google eyes
  • string
  • black thread and needle
  • black marker
  • glue
  • photos



Cut out foam parts using pattern.

Tip: Use sticky back foam for bunny head, but do not peel backing paper off. This will make bunny firmer. You can punch a hole at top of head to hang as a mobile or glue magnet on back.

Glue bunny pieces together. Use black thread for whiskers and insert with needle. Tie knots in back of head. Draw features using black marker.

Depending on how many eggs you want, punch holes at bottom of bunny. Just alternate lengths of string when hanging eggs so all photos show. Knot strings on bunny head and thread beads on.

Cut two pieces for each egg and insert photo between and glue closed. Decorate eggs, if desired. Punch hole at top of each egg and tie with knot to each string.

Happy Easter!

Fence with bunny.This is a craft stick fence for your happy Easter scene!

Simply interlock craft sticks, to form a zigzag fence to frame a nice little Easter village scene! You can snap off the ends of other craft sticks to interlock the open ends together, as seen in the picture.

Remember to keep track of the craft stick heights, as in have the fence even. Make sure that every other fence length of the zigzag (as in every "zig" part) is level on your hard work surface. I had to go back and level mine out because I accidentally stacked craft sticks in unequal heights.

Butter Lamb for EasterMake a lamb out of butter for your Easter table. You need 4 sticks of butter or margarine (softened) and a potato ricer (or a play dough thing that makes hair).

  1. Bend one stick like arc and place on a plate.

  2. Take 2/3 of a stick and bend a small piece over for the nose and push on the top to make an indent for the ears.

  3. Place all that on the left corner of the whole stick that is on the plate.

  4. With the leftover 1/3 cut into 4 legs.

  5. Now with the remaining 2 sticks you make "fur" by pushing the butter through the ricer and attach onto the body and part of the legs (don't cover the face or ears).

  6. Then use 2 cloves ( or whole pepper) for eyes and parsley in the mouth.

I just wanted a simple but fun idea to decorate my dining room so I added cut colored pieces of ribbon to some plastic eggs. The eggs were hinged, so I simply laid the ribbon over the hinge and closed it. Then I tied the eggs to my dining room light.

Does anyone have instructions for making quick and easy Easter pins? I am looking for a rabbit, chick, or an Easter egg. Thanks.

  • cotton balls (10-20 per tail)
  • glue
  • string, yarn, or twine
Bunny Tails


Cut enough string, yarn, or twine to wrap around the waist of the one who will wear the tail. In the middle of the string, start gluing the cotton balls in a clump. This is the messiest part, as the glue won't easily spread on the cotton balls. Keep adding cotton balls until you get the fluffiness you desire from the tail. Once dry, tie around the waist of your adorable bunny and have fun! Bunny Tails

The best part is, this craft is SUPER cheap depending on supplies on hand. It also makes a great prop for adorable pictures.

Jars of candy.These are little Easter jars. The first was filled with preserves and the other with spaghetti sauce. I got a dollar stamp from Michaels and some spring paper and made these jars for Easter for the grandkids. They were very easy and I love recycling the jars

Craft sticks spelling Happy Easter.These wooden "Happy Easter" letters work well for a window sill, garden, or to string on or as a banner!

Using the picture as a guide, make craft stick letters. For the smaller and horizontal parts of letters, as in the bar in "A" and the right-side parts of "P", snap (break) the inner most wood cuts. Be sure to have the pieces, such as in the letter "S" evenly overlapped; left sides over right, or the opposite.

Use the picture as a guideline! Paint if you'd like with spray paint or wood stain, etc.

Ideas for uses:

  • Lay on serving or food table at your Easter party

  • Stand on a window sill, leaning up against the glass of a window, facing outside or inside

  • Spray with aerosol sealer or cover with "Modge Podge" brand sealer, let dry and stick in the ground by your front door, in a garden bed, or a (rectangular) flower pot; or hot glue sturdy wire to each letter, then stick the wire into the ground

  • Hot glue letters to a strip of fabric and hang as an Easter banner

  • Hot glue ribbon from the tops and tack above a door way

Make names and celebrate other holidays with this craft stick letter-making!
