We received this month’s Easter themed Bostik craft box* a little while ago, then someone wanted to view our house which resulted in me hiding it away in a drawer out of sight and swiftly forgetting about it. Panic kicked in yesterday when I realised that the craft was due today and I didn’t even have an idea in mind. Not a clue.
Our bunny is far from perfect, in fact he looks quite angry and his whiskers are a little lopsided, but Aria had so much fun making him and she loves putting eggs in and out of him, which, as far as I am concerned, is a winner.
If you want to make your own, probably better, Easter bunny toilet roll sweet holder you will need :
- A toilet roll tube
- Pretty patterned paper, preferably different patterns for the feet, ears and nose (or you could use an egg sticker for the nose like I did if you have one)
- Googly eyes (I had to improvise as mine, like everything else in my house right now, have disappeared and my local Tesco don’t stock them)
- Pipe cleaner or similar for whiskers
- Glue/Blu Tac
I chose to use Blu Tac to stick everything onto the tube, firstly as it is way less messier than glue and secondly because it meant that I could slightly adjust things when Aria wasn’t looking, hard to believe but if it was left to her this thing would look even worse than it currently does!
This was so easy to make, you simply cover the tube in pretty paper, cut out feet and ear shapes and stick them in place, stick the eyes, nose and whiskers in place and then glue the completed tube onto a piece of card. As simple as that!
Just don’t turn your back and leave your toddler within reach of a pencil as your bunny and table will be drawn on.
