Easter Bunny Crafts: How to make your own Cute Wooden Spoon Easter Bunny

Print out your free template for the Bunny Ears and Teeth.
How to Make the Bunny Ears Stiff
Take your scrap fabric, and fold it in half – right sides out. Apply a generous coat of the Mod Podge to both sides of the folded fabric. This will stiffen the fabric so we can turn it into ears once dried. Set the Mod Podged fabric aside and allow it to completely dry.
Take your printed template and cut out your ear and teeth pattern templates. Decide which “Happy Easter” font you prefer for your Easter bunny crafts, and cut out in the shape of a ribbon. Leave a space at the beginning for the addition of a stiffened fabric heart.
Once your fabric is completely dry, trace the ear pattern template onto the fabric and cut out 2 ears. Bend your two earpieces just a little to give them a little shape and dimension. Trace and cut out your teeth piece.
Give your Easter Bunny a Face
Grab your wooden spoon and your black pen. Draw two small circles for the eyes on the backside of the spoon.
Use the pink crayon to add 2 circles for the cheeks on the spoon. Use your finger to blend in the color just a little.
In between the cheeks, add a dollop of hot glue. Place the teeth on the hot glue and press.
Add another spot of hot glue, directly on top of the teeth. Place the craft wire on top, centred to make the whiskers.
Add a third spot of hot glue on top of the craft wire and place your pompom nose on top, pressing to secure.
Carefully bend the craft wire to space out the whiskers. I recommend placing one finger on top of the nose to hold it, and the craft wires in place securely while bending.
Attach the Fabric Bunny Ears
Turn the spoon over and add to spots of glue to the top of the spoon and add your stiffened fabric ears. Press in place to secure.
Add a drop of hot glue in the area where the spoon widens from the handle, aka the neck of your bunny. Add your “Happy Easter” banner and a stiffened fabric heart.
Using the ribbon, tie a bow and secure in front of one of the ears with a little hot glue.
And now you’ve got one of the cutest Easter bunny crafts ever made!
Add your wooden spoon Easter bunny to a pot of flowers, Easter plant or wherever you think he’d be the cutest!
