If you want to create an unforgettable Easter for your family, you can do something special with your children – for example, making bunnies together. In this article, you’ll find spectacular DIY ideas and two detailed guides that can help. Have fun crafting!
Making rabbits out of old socks – creative ideas for Easter
The rabbits are an inseparable and important part of the decorations for Easter and can be crafted very easy. You can try out the simplest variant with old socks yourself at home. For this you need the following materials: a little old sock, rice, wobbly eyes, felt, bow, big felt ball and rubber bands. First you should fill the sock with rice and tie two rubber bands around it, so that a body with a head is created. Then glue a piece of the felt on the body – this will be the belly of the rabbit. The next step is the wobbly eyes, the big ball of felt at the back and the nose (a triangular piece of felt). Teeth can be made from two identical rectangular pieces of felt. Finally, tie the loop around the rabbit’s neck and cut the top of the sock into two to make ears.
Make pompom bunnies
You can also make soft “pompom” bunnies out of thick yarn. First, make two different pompoms out of the yarn – for the head and body. Shape the pompoms with the scissors and tie them together. Then cut out felt ears and glue them upside down. Next, stick a ball of cotton as a tail. The eyes of your bunny can be two black pearls. For the nose use a pink pearl. Pass some pieces of nylon thread through the peg and glue them – they will serve as whiskers of your bunny. Then attach this composition with glue on the rabbit’s head. They are already done!
