These simple and adorable Easter Bunny Donuts make for a quick Easter basket gift for kids or a fun spring treat to hand out to friends and family!
The Easter Bunny has always been one of my favorite traditions for Easter. I remember as a kid that E.B. would often pay a visit to my home, leaving me a basket full of spring treats and a trail of carrots as he walked around the house. I always enjoyed running downstairs to check and see what Mr. Easter Bunny left for me in my basket, which often included items like sweets and small trinkets and games.
If you are looking for a fun, little treat to leave in a kiddo’s Easter basket or just want a fun and delicious gift to give to friends and family for spring, you are going to love this treat inspired by the Easter Bunny himself: Easter Bunny Donuts!
This sweet gift is so incredibly easy to make and the presentation is absolutely adorable that both kids and adults alike will let out a collective “aww”. I mean, just look at those little bunny ears!
Using only a package of snack donuts from the store and a few crafting supplies, you can easily create these cute bunny donuts in just a matter of minutes, making it perfect to tuck into an Easter basket or to hand out.
Read on below to learn how to make your own Easter Bunny Donuts for spring!
Here’s What You Need:
- Powdered donut snack packages (these donuts from Walmart are the best for this project)
- Colored pencils
- Black permanent marker
Here’s How to Make Your Easter Bunny Donuts:
Start by creating all of the bunny’s features to attach to your package of powdered donuts. For the bunny, you will need four large circles for the paws, two medium circles for the eyes, a small circle for the nose, and two rabbit’s ears.
I simply free-formed each piece, but you can always trace out some circles and ears before cutting them out. For each foot, cut out a circle the size of a quarter. Next, cut out two smaller circles for the eyes; you can “eyeball” it (haha!). Lastly, make a tiny circle for the nose.
Once all the circles are cut out, create the bunny ears. Simply round out the edges and bring them to a point at the top to create that iconic bunny ear look.
After all the bunny’s features are cut out, get out the colored pencils. For the bunny’s ears, color the center of the ears with a pink colored pencil to create definition for the ears. With the pink colored pencil, completely color the smallest circle for the bunny’s nose.
Now, with a black colored pencil, add some toes to each of the four larger circles for the feet. For the bottom paws, create three black lines in the bottom center of the circle as shown below (you’ll end up facing them upward when attaching them so the bunny looks like he’s sitting). For the top paws (or arms), have the toe lines curl into the sides so it’ll appear like his hands are resting on his belly when you attach them.
Lastly, on the two medium circles, color two black circles at the base to create the bunny’s eyes.
With some clear tape, attach the bunny’s features to the package of donuts. Start by attaching the ears to the back of the package of donuts (with the pink center side facing towards you) with some tape.
Once the ears are secured, build the rest of the bunny’s body. Creating some double-sided tape, place a piece of tape on the back of all four paws and attach them to the bunny’s donut body, starting with the bottom two paws with the lines facing upward so, again, it looks like he is sitting down. For the other two paws, place them so the toes are facing inward towards his body.
Next, apply some tape to the back of the eyes and attach them towards the top of the package of donuts. Place some tape on the back of the bunny’s nose and adhere it just underneath and between the eyes.
To finish off the bunny’s face, you will need your black permanent marker. For the bunny’s mouth, create two curved lips starting from the bottom center of the nose (as shown below). Lastly, no bunny is complete without whiskers, so add a few on either side of the bunny’s face, and set him aside to allow for the marker to completely dry.
That’s it! Now you have a hoppy little bunny for a cute Easter basket gift or a spring treat!
Wasn’t that so easy?! But they turn out so adorable! I’m telling you, kids will love this!
