Easter Egg Bunnies How-To

What you'll need:
  • 6-12 hard boiled eggs
  • A pencil
  • Craft scissors
  • Heavy white craft glue or felt glue (specially formulated for adhering to felt - found in most craft stores next to the felt.)
  • A permanent black marker (if decorating with older children) OR a black crayon (if decorating with younger children.)
  • White felt (we used 2 8"x 10" white sheets of felt for 6 eggs)
  • Pink felt (we used a very small portion of 1 8"x 10" sheet)
  • Optional: Green paper Easter grass for displaying your Easter Egg Bunnies

How to 
  1. Start by hard boiling your eggs. Once complete set them in the refrigerator to cool for 1-2 hours.
  2. Once cooled, remove your hard boiled eggs from the refrigerator.
  3. Use a black crayon or a black permanent marker to draw eyes, a nose, whiskers etc. on your bunnies. Once complete set them in the egg carton, and place them back in the refrigerator.
  4. Next, trace out your bunny ears on the white felt (we used extra-large eggs so each of the bottom 1/2" strips to our bunny ear "hats" was about 3" in length (refer to images below.) Cut each set of bunny ears and set to the side. 
  5. Now, trace out the inner pink area for each set of felt bunny ears. Cut out and set to the side.
  6. Using heavy craft glue or felt glue, assemble each set of bunny ears (refer to images below.)
  7. Set to the side, and allow adequate time for drying (ideally overnight.) 
  8. Once dry, slide a set of bunny ears onto each of your Easter Egg Bunnies. 
  9. Display in a bowl or egg carton filled with green paper Easter grass. Display as a fun and festive centerpiece on your table, this Easter!

Happy crafting & Happy Easter, everyone!
