No Easter would be complete without the bunny that brings candy gifts to all the boys and girls. And your Easter decorations just can’t be complete without a little bunny in your home. Make fun bunny crafts for Easter to complete your decor and pay homage to the holiday.
Bunny Table Setting
Complete your holiday table with napkins that look like bunnies. Master a simple folding technique to make your table complete.
Lay your napkin out flat and fold it into thirds to create a rectangle. For square napkins, fold it in half once and then fold in half again to get that rectangle. Now fold the rectangle in half to get a crisp center line, then unfold.
Using your center line as a reference, fold the top corners down so they match up with the line. Now fold the bottom corners up to create a diamond shape with the napkin. Fold the left and right edges inward so they meet at the center line.
Turn the folded napkin upside down. Fold the napkin in half horizontally, bringing the bottom point up to the center of the napkin. Fold the left and right corners back toward the center, tucking one corner into the other. Now pull the “ears” free and open the base of the napkin so it will stand up. Place a bunny napkin on each plate to complete your table setting.
Napkin bunnies look amazing, but only until everyone starts eating. To add some permanent bunny flair to your Easter decor, you’re going to need some socks. Children’s socks are best because they’re small and highly affordable.
Fill the foot part of the sock with uncooked rice or beans, stopping just below the heel. Tie this off using a rubber band. Cut straight down the center of the top portion of the sock, and round the edges to make bunny ears. Glue a cotton ball to the back of the sock to create a fluffy bunny tail. Use a marker to draw a face on the other side, and your sock bunny is complete. Buttons can also be used to create the bunny’s face.
Cardstock is one of the easiest ways to make lots of simple bunny decorations. Get stiff cardstock and print out a picture of a rabbit silhouette in profile. Cut this out and trace the bunny onto the cardstock. Now cut out the second bunny. Glue this little guy to a stick and bury in the garden to add a whimsical flair to your outdoor space.
Cut out a tiny bunny template instead and fold your cardstock accordion-style. Now cut out the bunny shape and you’ve created a rabbit garland. Use this to decorate cake stands, hang it on the wall or drape it across the mantle to add a touch of Easter anywhere.
