Washcloth Easter Bunny Craft

As this Easter craft requires some delicate folding and the use of a glue gun, this is a good one for grown-ups to make and present to little ones as an Easter surprise. They make a fabulous and cost-effective addition to an Easter basket, while upcycling old washcloths. Children will love hopping their fabulous Easter craft around the house.

Steps for Making a Washcloth Easter Bunny

  1. Making the washcloth Easter bunny craft
    Folding the ends for the bunny ears

    Lay the washcloth flat in a diamond shape.

  2. Roll each end in towards the middle.
  3. Then fold the opposite ends into the middle and wrap an elastic band around the body of the bunny to secure the folded ears and body in place.
  4. Tie a piece of ribbon tightly around the bunny’s head in front of the ears and tie it into a bow.
  5. With the glue gun, make two small dabs and add the googly eyes.
