Craft night recap x2: Easter bunnies and spring tulips!

Bonus craft! We were ambitious last night, and took on 2 crafts in one night (don't worry though - they are both pretty easy!) Here I will be taking you through the process of making a bunny on a stick and a spring tulip. Both would be perfect additions to an Easter Basket, May Basket or in a flower pot!

Easter Bunnies

Materials needed:

Bunny template

Colorful paper or cardstock

Scissors

White glue or hot glue

Popsicle stick (available in packs at craft stores)

Small colored pom pom for bunny tail (available at craft stores)

 

Step 1: Trace the bunny shape onto the back side of the colored paper. Cut out 2 seperate bunny shapes. You can use the same color for both sides, or mix and match! 

Step 2: Glue the stick to the inside of one of the bunny shapes.

Step 3: Glue the other bunny shape to the bottom bunny shape, sandwiching the stick. Trim around the edges of the shapes if they do not line up exactly.

Step 4: Glue the bunny tail to one (or both!) sides of the bunny. All that is left is to find the perfect home for him!!

 

Spring tulip

Materials needed:

Tulip template

Colored paper in 2 patterns/colors

White glue or hot glue

Scissors

Pipe cleaner

Step 1: Trace the tulip and leaf shapes to the back side of the colored paper and cut out shapes. You will need 2 of the tulip shape and 4 of the leaf shape.

Step 2: Glue the pipe cleaner to the back side of one of the tulip shapes.

Step 3: Glue the top tulip shape to the bottom, sandwiching the pipe cleaner. Trim any edges that do not line up.

Step 4: Glue the leaves to each other, sandwiching them around the pipe cleaner. You can place the leaves wherever you like!

Step 5: One you are done gluing, you could stick the pipe cleaner into a flower pot, wind the end around a pen, or any other brilliant placement you can think of!

Happy crafting!
