The Easter bunny or the Easter hare is a symbolic figure of the Easter season. They are often depicted carrying a basket full of eggs, candies or toys. They are somewhat synonyms to Santa Claus, during the Christmas season. Easter bunny ornaments and decors can be found in several houses during the Easter season. As part of the celebration, we will be making an Easter bunny door décor that is easy to make, yet uses inexpensive materials. Let’s begin!
Step 1: Gather all the materials needed for this tutorial:
- Corrugated boards
- bond paper
- several acrylic paints
- paint brushes
- 2 to 3 pieces pink pipe cleaner
- a pair of googly eyes
- big button
- 2-centimeter thick red satin ribbon
- hot glue
- medium yellow pompoms
- Scotch tape
Step 2: Draw a simple bunny on a piece of bond paper. The size of the bunny would depend on your liking, but for this tutorial, we maximized the whole paper.
Step 3: Cut the bunny pattern.
Step 4: Tape the bunny pattern on the smooth back of the corrugated board.
Step 5: Cut the corrugated board based on the bunny pattern.
Step 6: Remove the bunny pattern on the board once you finished cutting it.
Step 7: Cover the working table with newspaper to avoid unnecessary paint drips later.
Step 8: Paint the corrugated part of the board. The design of the bunny would depend on your liking, but the colorful bunny, the better.
Step 9: Let the bunny dry for an hour.
Step 10: Hot glue the googly eyes on the head of the bunny.
Step 11: Hot glue the button just below the eyes. This will be the bunny’s nose.
Step 12: Cut the three pipe cleaners into two equal parts. Hot glue the pipe cleaners on each side of the nose, three on each side. This will be the bunny’s whiskers.
Step 13: Hot glue the pompoms on the middle part of the bunny’s tail.
Step 14: Cut the red satin ribbon. This should be a foot long.
Step 15: Hot glue red ribbon on top of the bunny’s ear. This should be placed on the back part of the bunny décor.
Step 16: The cute Easter bunny door décor is finally done!
Step 17: The Easter bunny is now ready for hanging in your front door.
This Easter bunny can also be displayed on the window and even serve as a wall décor. You can make several Easter bunnies of different size and design. This craft tutorial is a perfect family bonding activity that will definitely enhance your child’s creativity. Hope you like it!
