Having worked as a nanny for 5+ years, you tend to pick up on a few things…
Crafts are EVERYTHING, especially if you have kiddos at home, who tend to create chaos if they are not doing something that needs their full attention.
Bring in the colored paper and crayons.
With March already here (gosh, where did the time go?), Easter is only a few weeks away and its time for all the fun crafts to begin.
This Bunny in the Carrot is the perfect way to kick off all of your Easter crafts.
With a variety of colors to choose from, you can let your kids make their own “special bunny” and keep them entertained for a few hours, even when the craft is done!
Take a look at this tutorial on how to create this Easter craft in a few short steps.
You don’t even have to leave your house.
You probably already have the stuff to make it 🙂
Bunny in the Carrot
- Felt fabric (a color of your choice)
- Craft glue
- Marker (to trace the template)
- Template (see instructions)
Print and cut out the patterns of the template. Place the cutout patterns on the selected felt fabrics and trace around the sides using a pencil or marker. Cut out the patterns neatly.
Take the 2 carrot patterns and place the leaves on the top end of the intact carrot pattern (about a cm on both). The leaves and the carrot pattern should overlap.
Place the carrot pattern with the hole on the top of the intact one and match the sides of both carrot pattern.
Prepare your needle and thread to stitch all four felt pieces (2 leaves and 2 carrot patterns) together.
Cut out the round shape from the template and trace it on a felt fabric. Cut out the pattern and nicely glue it on the carrot pattern with the hole to create a border for the hole; You may also stitch the round border if you want to.
Time to craft the bunny!
Take any one of the bunny body pieces and stitch the face details on it using a dark shaded thread.
Once you’re done stitching the face details, stitch the inner ear pieces with the body ear part.
Take the other body part and place it under the detailed one. Stitch around the sides of both pieces to join them. Keep a small opening for the stuffing. (I used leftover felt pieces to stuff the bunny.)
Once the bunny is stuffed, stitch the open end to secure the stuffing and cut off extra thread. Use a pink highlighter to create pink blush patterns on both cheeks of the bunny.
Place the bunny inside the carrot through the hole and done!
