I’m a big fan of whimsical, colorful decor. Easter is such a fun holiday to craft for because there are so many creative ways to make chicks, bunnies, and other spring critters. For this project I used cute craft wood spools to make itty bitty bunnies.
- Wood Spools – $1.50 for pack
- Craft paint – on hand
- Twine – on hand
- Googly Eyes – on hand
- Mini pompoms – on hand
- Washi tape – on hand
- Ribbon – on hand
Total: $1 and up
Step one: Paint the wood spools.
Step two: Wrap the spool with baker’s twine.
Step three: Use twine to make whiskers. Set three pieces of twine side by side, and tie with a fourth piece. Trim the ends.
Step four: Use washi tape to make ears. Fold a piece of washi tape in half, then trim into a bunny ear shape.
Glue all the pieces onto the face as pictured to bring your itty bitty bunny to life. You could add a chain or cord to make a cute Easter necklace. These bunnies would make fun photo or place card holders if you add a clip or some wire to the top. If you’re lucky enough to have larger wooden spools you can use yarn to make big bunnies. Have fun crafting and creating!
