Paper Plate Bunny Instructions

Step 1: Prep the plates!

The plates will make the face of your bunny for this craft.

Grab one of your paper plates and cut off the top third of the plate (doesn’t need to be exact!) – flip this cut plate over (so it’s face down).

Next, glue the two plates together. See photo for an example – you’ll glue the curved perimeter of the upside down cut plate onto the top of the whole plate! See photo above.

Step 2: Add the bunny face and ears!

This will be the canvas for our Paper Plate Bunny Craft masterpiece. Glue on the eyes. Now, let’s give our bunny a cute little nose! Take your bead or button and glue it onto the bunny’s face, right below the eyes. Press it down gently to make sure it sticks.

Add whiskers and a smile!

Now, onto the bunny ears! Take your cardstock paper and cut out two big bunny ear shapes in white – or go wild with the colors – the more vibrant, the better!

Once you’ve got your ears ready, it’s time to stick ’em on. Grab your trusty glue and attach those ears to the back of your Paper Plate Bunny Craft face. Make sure they’re nice and secure!

Step 3: Bunny Tail!

Use a pompom or cotton ball to make the bunny’s tail. This can be white or any color you like. Glue it onto the bottom center of the BACK of the plates to complete the adorable look.

Step 4: Fill your paper plate bunny basket!

Time for the best part – filling your Paper Plate Bunny Craft with all the goodies! Whether it’s jellybeans, chocolate eggs, or your favorite little toys, pile them in and watch your bunny craft come to life.
