Gather your supplies.
Cut out the pattern pieces.
Using the pattern pieces, cut out a rabbit in the paper of your choice.
You will not be using the glass but can use it as a pattern to trace your choice of cardstock paper for your background.
Layout your bunny pieces to get an idea of placement.
Glue the body piece on first.
Make sure you’ve arranged it so it will end up even on the background paper when framed.
Next, add the head wherever you decided to place it, keeping in mind you will be sliding the ears under the top of it. Glue the tip of one ear.
Slide it under the head.
Do the same for the second ear. You can glue the second ear flat or keep them both loose.Taking a pencil, roll under one ear to make it floppy.
Use a white pom pom for the tail. Glue it in place and frame your bunny!

Carrot Garden DIY Easter Basket Supplies
- Small cardboard box with lid
- Plastic eggs, green and orange
- Hot glue gun
- Construction paper, green and brown
- Utility knife
- Green permanent marker
- Flower stickers (optional)
Gather your supplies. Any small box with a lid should work. A thin shoe box would be perfect. We used a small closable box that a piece of electronic equipment had come in.
Trace the sides of your box onto your green construction paper.
Cut out the sides and then cut slits around the edge for the grass.
Glue the grass onto all the sides.
Measure and cut a brown top piece for the dirt.
Trace the top smaller portion of your eggs onto your box, spacing them as desired depending on how many carrots you will use.
Cut the holes out using a craft knife, making sure to cut them a tiny amount smaller than the actual tracing. NOTE: You may want to do some test holes in another piece of cardboard so you will know what size they need to be. You want your eggs to sit down in snugly but not fall through.
Glue the lower, longer portion of the green eggs onto the full orange eggs as shown. This creates the carrot effect.
Take a permanent green marker and make lines around the top “greenery” portion of the carrot.
Add flower stickers, if desired, around the edge of the box.
Fill the eggs with goodies and set them down into the holes. NOTE: You can also tack them in place with hot glue if desired. We did that but only for photo purposes.
Fill the box with Easter grass and more goodies completing your DIY Easter basket!
Pretty little custom DIY Easter baskets you can make in minutes using a plastic soda bottle of any size! They’re not just for Easter!

DIY Easter Baskets Supplies
- Plastic bottle of any size. (We used 32 oz size.)
- Utility knife, scissors, dry erase marker (to mark bottle cutting lines.)
- Glue gun
- Decor items: Paint pens, permanent markers, stickers, ribbon, beads etc.
Measure and mark where you want to cut your bottle. Using a dry erase marker works wonderfully as you can rub it off when you’re done.
Cut a thin strip for the handle. You can make it any width you want.
If you’re doing scallops on the edge you can mark those ahead of time and then cut.
I chose Sharpie Paint Markers for one of my baskets, making dots around the edge.
Glue your handles in place with hot glue. A clothespin is helpful to hold them in place until they dry.
For my second basket I lined the edges with ribbon and added buttons where the handle attaches to the base.
The sky is the limit on how you can decorate these. I added some appliques I had on hand and also a butterfly to one of my baskets and tied a name tag onto the other with raffia.
This cute little chickadee is a wonderful Easter gift for any age. He’s simple to make and only costs pennies. Use him as a charm, on a key ring or as a necklace as shown. A plastic Easter egg with some moss is the perfect “wrapping”! We have both Sculpey & Fimo clay but there is a variety of create and bake brands available that work wonderfully. If you like this little guy check out our little sock chicks! He would also be perfect placed in these darling Plastic Soda Bottle DIY Easter Baskets.
Easter Gift Necklace Supplies
- Polymer clay of choice. (Dries in low temp oven.)
- Ball chain (It must be smaller in size to fit through your eye screw.)
- Hardware screw eye bolts (Small enough to easily go into your cork and also fit your chain. )
- Plastic egg and moss for gift wrapping.
BAKING CLAY: 275 degree oven for 15 minutes for each 1/4″ of thickness.
You can make these any size you wish.
I chose to put the eyes on with a Sharpie marker. I put one set on before baking and the other sets after. Both worked well.
This cute little pair of chickies can be made in a matter of minutes! All you need is a pair of toddler socks, some ribbon and anything you’d like to use for eyes. Put them in an Easter basket, give them as gifts or even turn into sachets by adding some essential oil into the stuffing before sewing the bottom up! You could also make them in a variety of colors. (Who says chicks have to be yellow?) Below are the super simple instructions.
- Pair of toddler socks
- Felt for beak. (I used pieces of orange ribbon.)
- Choice of items for eyes (felt, googly eyes, gems etc.)
- Hot Glue Gun
- Needle and thread to sew up bottom
- Tiny amount of some sort of stuffing.
OPTIONAL: I could only find white socks and I wanted yellow chicks so I put some water in a glass and added a little Rit dye and soaked them for about an hour. Wow! Talk about vibrant yellow!
I made a little nest for my chicks using a plastic bowl I had purchased in a set of three from the dollar store. I put some shredded paper I had inside it to rest my chicks on.
These bunnies aren’t just for Easter! They make a great decor item anytime of the year. A little bit of burlap, ribbon and stuffing is what you need. Whether you make one or a dozen they whip up super fast and would make a lovely gift!
- Small amount of burlap material
- Stuffing (I used cotton balls!)
- Tiny pom pom for nose
- Marker for eyes
- Sewing machine (Could be hand sewn)
The photos are fairly self-explanatory.
I put mine in a container that I bought from the thrift store,
