Easter is a holiday that is beloved by many, and it’s the perfect time to bring out your creativity and craft some fun projects for the occasion. At Printables4Mom, we have just the perfect DIY project to get you started: the Easter Bunny Cardboard Craft!
Easter Bunny Cardboard Craft
Back in high school, I took a few art classes, and one of my favorite projects involved adding texture to our art with various pieces of cardboard. We would deconstruct corrugated cardboard to get the wavy textures, adding a fun and unique element to our art. The bunny and ears of these bunnies were made in the same way, by deconstructing a cardboard box. I believe you can buy cardboard with a single face board that already has that wave texture, but if you have leftover cardboard laying around this is a great use for it.
GATHER YOUR SUPPLIES
This adorable craft project is made using recycled cardboard, oil pastels, and a free printable template that you can easily download from our website. With this template, you can create an adorably textured bunny that you can personalize with different accessories and colors.
Before you get started on this fun and engaging project, you’ll need to gather your supplies. In addition to the free printable template, you’ll need cardboard of various textures, sandpaper, glue, scissors, and oil pastels. Once you have all your supplies ready, you can start on this fun and engaging project.
Trace and Cut Out Your Bunny Pieces
To create your Easter Bunny Cardboard Craft, start by downloading the bunny template from our website. Once you have the template, print it out and trace the pieces onto different textures of cardboard as shown. Carefully cut out all the pieces and then start adding color to them using oil pastels. Use your fingertips to blend the colors and create unique shades and textures on each piece.
Add Coloring and Begin Assembling
After you have added color to all the pieces, start assembling the bunny by gluing the belly piece to the large body section. Then, glue the circles to the feet pieces to create the bottom paws. After piecing together the paws, glue both the front and back paws in place. Add the nose to the bunny’s face and then layer the ear pieces together as shown in the template. Glue the ears to the top, center back of the head.
Create Eye Pieces and Add Accessories
Finally, create some eye pieces out of leftover cardboard or use a sharpie to draw them on. Copy the eye shape of our bunny or get creative with it.
Then decide if you want to add a bow or flower accessory to your bunny. Color and glue it into place. Allow everything to dry, and your Easter Bunny is complete!
