Gather all supplies. Remove the hanger and tags from the twine-wrapped foam eggs. Press the base of the foam egg on a hard surface to flatten it slightly. This will help the egg to sit in place without rolling around.
Download and print the EGG BUNNY PATTERNS. Cut out all patterns with scissors. Using a permanent marker, trace six small circles, two larger circles, and one nose onto white craft felt for each bunny. Cut out patterns with scissors.
PRO TIP: Cut inside the traced line, so that your finished project looks neat and clean.
Trace two ears and two oval feet on baby pink, baby blue, and/or violet sky craft felt, and then cut out with scissors. You could also use colored cardstock or craft foam for this project.
Measure and cut three 4” long pieces of black wire with wire cutters. Flip the white felt nose over, and attach the three wires in a crisscross pattern using a glue gun and glue sticks.
Using a glue gun and glue sticks, attach two black buttons for the eyes. Attach the white felt nose just under the eyes. Assemble the bunny’s feet using the photo for placement. Place a small dot of glue at the base of each ear, and then fold it in half to give the ears dimension. You can use liquid craft glue for this project, but you will have to wait for it to dry.
Glue the feet onto the bottom left and right of the Bunny. Attach the base of the craft felt ears together with a glue gun and glue sticks.
Using your closed scissors, carefully poke a hole in the top of the egg. Insert the ears and secure them with a glue gun and glue sticks.
And here are the bunnies ready for their close-up!
