Create a one-of-a-kind spring and Easter decor DIY with this EGG-xtra cute DIY Easter Egg Bunny! With only a few supplies needed, this craft is perfect for both kids and adults this spring!
With the Easter Bunny on the way, it’s time to bring out all of those bunny decor items! Easter is such a celebratory time filled with a sense of positivity, joy, and much-needed cheer, and nothing brings more cheer than the Easter Bunny!
This spring, I wanted to create a cute and unique Easter bunny decoration for my house and came up with the idea to use an Easter egg to make one! After all, during the Easter season there are so many fun ways to decorate eggs.
With a styrofoam egg, some paint (you could even use paint pens for the facial features), a bunny ear cake pick (I found mine at Hobby Lobby, but you could easily make one with a skewer and some cardstock!), and a few crafting tools, this DIY Easter Egg Bunny was super easy to make and turned out so cute! Plus, it’s a great spring crafts for both kids and adults.
The best part about this DIY is you could easily use the styrofoam egg to create lots of other adorable spring-related animals, like a baby chick or even a little lamb. The options are endless, but the finished product will always be perfect for spring and Easter with the use of the Easter egg!
Read on below to learn how to make your own DIY Easter Egg Bunny!
Here’s What You’ll Need:
- Styrofoam egg (I found mine at Michaels)
- Bunny ear cake pick
- White, pink, and black paint
- Paintbrushes and painter’s palette (or a paper plate will do just fine)
- A craft knife
- Paper to cover your work surface
Here How to Make Your DIY Easter Egg Bunny:
With a craft knife, cut the bottom of the styrofoam egg to create a flat base for the egg to stand upright. Start by cutting a small amount off of the bottom of the egg and continue to cut it incrementally until you have a flat base (like shown below).
To make the styrofoam egg match the bunny ears and look, well, less like styrofoam, I painted the egg an Alabaster shade of paint. It was the perfect shade for the DIY Easter Bunny Egg since it’s a soft, almost off-white paint color that has just the right amount of creaminess to make it not white. Plus, it ended up making the styrofoam egg look more like it was a pottery piece.
Set the styrofoam egg aside to let it dry. Since it is so porous, it will take a bit of time before it is completely dry.
After the styrofoam egg has dried, it’s time to add on the bunny’s face!
For the bunny’s nose, paint an upside-down triangle just above the center of the egg with some pink paint. It’s easiest to paint the outer edge first, then fill it in with the pink paint.
Next, with some black paint, add two half-circle eyes just above the bunny’s nose (like shown below).
To create the bunny’s mouth, paint a vertical line from the base of the nose with the black paint, then create two curved lips branching from the vertical line.
Lastly, don’t forget to add whiskers onto the bunny’s face! Paint two curved lines on either side of the bunny’s nose with the black paint.
Allow the DIY Easter Egg Bunny to dry completely. If you feel the paint is not vibrant enough for the face, feel free to give the bunny’s face a second coat, but I felt that one coat was sufficient with the styrofoam egg.
To finish the DIY Easter Egg Bunny, carefully slide the bunny ears cake pick into the top center of the styrofoam egg until the ears are sitting directly on top of the egg.
And that’s it! You now have an egg-ceptionally cute bunny made out of an Easter egg!
