Sometimes, I look at lots of super cute craft blogs, while my children are present.
And sometimes, we see a really cute craft, and my children beg me to make it.
And so we did.
Crafts by Amanda had a very similiar bunny from a cardboard tube. It was really cute, so we made our own version with things we had on hand.
Cardboard Tube Easter Bunny Craft:
Cardboard tubes from toliet paper
Acrylic paint (I let my kids paint and then I touched it up
Staples and stapler
Hot glue gun
This is a pretty straight forward easy craft, you can do with your kids or family members. And it is super cute too.
First-cut the tubes in half.
Paint both pieces. One will be the bunny, and the other part will be for the ears.
I used colors I had already.
Cut out bunny ears for one piece.
When the paint is dry, use Elmer's glue to glue on the ears.
When that is dry, use a stapler that will fit inside of the tube, and add staples for the bunny whiskers. Next add brads or buttons for the eyes and nose. Using my scrapbooking tools, I just punched a hole first for the brads, and then inserted the brads.
Using a hot glue gun, (don't let the kids do this part!) glue on the button. You can add ribbon or even a cute cotton bunny tail on the back or whatever you like.
AND another reason these are cute- they double as holders for your Easter Eggs!
The eggs these ones are holding are from this post. I think these would be cute with a delicious chocolate egg...for a small gift for a friend, etc. :) Bring on the Cadbury!
