Give your friends a special Easter greetings bunny and beautiful poem made from a simple folded handkerchief or piece of cloth and filled with a golden egg.For you older folks this might take you back a few years. When I was little my dad showed me how to make a hankie bunny where you fold a cloth handkerchief into a little rabbit. They’re as cute as can be so I decided to show how to make them for those who might not know how. Then I took it a step further, as I tend to do, and created a very special poem to go with it. The secret “ingredient” so to speak, is a golden egg. (You’ll see why when you read the poem.)  If you’d like more Easter ideas, check out our Burlap Bunny DIY and our Cute Frameable Floppy Eared Bunny Easter Decorations.

 

Easter Greetings Bunny Supplies

Egg Choices:

NOTE: A 12″ handkerchief is perfect for the smaller mini plastic eggs or some of the candy eggs. Ferrero gold foil chocolate eggs are PERFECT at about 1.5″ long. Walmart carries them. The handkerchief can be slightly adjusted once the bunny is made to fit a slightly larger or smaller egg.  The key is that the egg needs to be gold which can be done in a variety of ways.

  1. Mini Plastic Eggs Fill with a a chocolate goodie then paint gold or wrap with gold foil.
  2. Foil covered candy eggs. Ferrero Eggs are the perfect size.
  3.  Any candy egg that is the right size (approx 1.5″ give or take a little) can be covered in gold foil.
