Easter Bunny Crown
The thought of the Easter Bunny stopping in the carrot patch to fuel up for leaving Easter Eggs and other treats was the inspiration for this Easter Bunny Crown. It is almost entirely made of cardboard so grab a box and you are ready to make this festive crown!
To make your Bunny Easter Bonnet, you will need:
- Colored Cardstock
How to make a Bunny Easter Bonnet from Cardboard
Begin with the cardboard carrots for your Easter Crown
Cut out four carrot shapes from cardboard.
Paint the cardboard carrot shapes and allow to dry.
To the top of each carrot, glue green cardstock. Cut strips at the top of the cardstock and curl by wrapping a pencil around each strip.
Once dry add some stripes in a lighter orange (see images below).
Making your cardboard bunny for your hat
Cut a band of cardboard and staple it into a ring shape.
On cardboard, draw the shape of a bunny, ears and tail. Cut the pieces out.
Paint the bunny pieces and allow to dry.
Glue the bunny to the crown band.
Adding the finishing touches to your cardboard bonnet
Glue the carrots – two on each side of the bunny – to the crown band. Trim the carrots if you’d like them at different heights.
We added the tail last because we were still debating if we wanted to have the bunny looking forward or turned around.
We liked the idea of showing the fluffy bunny tail but feel free to customize the bunny with a cute face or holding another carrot, with a tiny hat and bow tie or however you’d like your Easter Bunny to look!
