12 Easter Crafts You Can Make with One Template

For the upcoming holiday, I had plans to make one Easter craft – bunny bags. Yet, when finishing up the bags, the wheels in my head started moving.

I started to think of more craft ideas that would use the exact same Easter bunny template. That seemed so efficient too – to use the same cute bunny template to make all the Easter crafts. 

One thing led to another – and I’ve compiled 12 Easter crafts that you can make with this one printable.

12 Cute Bunny Crafts

From Easter decor to kids crafts, they are all here – so is this simple free Easter bunny template.

You can make 12 easy Easter crafts from this same bunny template! Free Printable

​Listed below are 12 easy Easter crafts that all use the same free printable bunny template.

1. Easter Bunny Bags with Cotton Balls

When we used to have Easter egg hunts at my Grandma’s house, we always needed a place to store the goodies that we found inside the eggs. Our grandma would give us a gallon ziplock bag with our name on it to carry our goodies home.

Rather than ziplock bags, how cute would it be to use these cute Easter bunny bags?

​You could also use them for Easter gifts, hostess gifts, or other festive goodies πŸ™‚

It’s one of the Easter crafts we are sharing today that take minutes to make and are such a cute touch.

Making Easy Bunny Bags - 12 Simple Easter Crafts with Free Printable

Bunny Bag Materials:

  • Easter Bunny template (see link above)
  • Craft bags
  • Card stock or even construction paper
  • Pom-poms or cotton balls for the tails
  • Scissors
  • Glue

This bunny bag could not be simpler.

Using card stock or even construction paper, simply trace and cut out the bunnies. Then, glue each bunny to a craft bag. Add a pom-pom or a cotton ball for the tail.

As far as the bags and the card stock, you can be as creative as you’d like with this Easter bunny craft.

There are lots of patterned papers, sparkly papers, and patterned bags. I kept mine simple with plain bags and card stock with a subtle texture for this paper rabbit craft. ​

2. Burlap Easter Banner Craft

How cute is this burlap banner? I recently posted an article on how to make these burlap banners for St. Patrick’s Day.

I loved them so much that I thought a bunny banner Easter decor would be a nice replacement for the shamrocks that had taken stock on our mantel.

Additionally, the Easter banner garland craft takes under an hour to make – and could not have been easier. ​I love a craft that I have long finished before my son wakes up from his nap.

Bunny Burlap Banner Materials:

  • Easter Bunny template
  • Foam brush
  • Acrylic paint
  • Burlap – I loved using cardboard backed burlap sheets. 
  • Ribbon for stringing the letters together
  • Cotton balls or pom-poms for the tails
  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue

Since I already posted detailed steps on how to make this banner, I’m going to link over to my burlap banner article.

If you are hosting the holiday dinner or looking for an Easter bunny craft, this is a cute one that turns out beautifully, doesn’t break the bank, and won’t use up all your time. Perfect bunny craft for adults.

3. Adorable Easter Craft Cards

I love having my son make cards for others. I think it instills such a great message to spend time making something special for someone else.

Not to mention, it makes the recipients so happy to get a cute piece of mail from him. β€‹

These cards are really easy – they take five minutes and use the same bunny template. You can also make it one of your kids Easter crafts by having your child decorate or color the bunny.

Or, you can send as is – with a cute piece of scrapbook paper and a pom-pom. β€‹

Making Homemade Easter Cards - Plus, 12 Simple Easter Crafts with Free Printable

Easter Bunny Craft Card Materials:

  • Bunny template (and Easter Bunny Sayings – in Resource Library)
  • Card stock for bunny and card
  • Cotton ball or pom-pom for tail
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • If kids are decorating: paint, markers, googly eyes, etc

You can’t go wrong sending a cute card to someone – and when the Easter bunny craft only takes a few minutes, even better!

4. Easter Egg Hunt Markers

Easter egg hunts can be a little hard for little kids – especially since they are trying to keep up with the older ones.

A simple way to help them find eggs is to put little egg markers, where eggs are hidden for them. Then, explain to the older ones to not find eggs near the egg markers. It also makes for a fun Easter craft. Kids especially can help with this Easter activity because it is so simple.

Egg Hunt Marker Materials:

  • Bunny template
  • Card stock or construction paper
  • Popsicle stick
  • Scissors
  • Glue or tape

​Simply glue or tape a bunny template to a popsicle stick and place it in the ground.

Have the little ones look for the bunnies for a fun Easter workout πŸ™‚

They are another easy Easter bunny craft that you could do with your kids.

While you have your popsicle sticks out, have your child decorate a few bunny templates as Easter crafts. They could color them, paint them, adorn them with googly eyes or feathers – or whatever you have around your house.

Popsicle Stick Bunny Materials:

  • Easter Bunny template
  • Popsicle sticks
  • Tape
  • Decorating materials: Markers, cotton balls, paint, googly eyes, or anything you have

After your child has finished decorating their bunnies, simply tape or glue the bunnies to popsicle sticks for kids to play with for a fun Easter craft.

​My son is obsessed with this song “The Finger Family,” and he loved creating a bunny family with these.

He also loved that we were both working on bunnies together. As I was working on the bunny banner garland, he was decorating his bunnies… kind of like parallel play πŸ™‚

6. Easter Bunny Card Stock Banner

Another type of banner you could make is a card stock one. The materials are a little easier to gather for this Easter banner craft, rather than the burlap one (although the burlap one is more fun :).

Easy Easter Banner with free printables

Card Stock Bunny Banner Materials:

  • Easter Bunny template
  • Card stock of your choice – textured, patterned, plain you can be creative here πŸ™‚
  • Ribbon for threading the bunnies
  • Hole punch
  • Cotton balls or pom-poms for the tail
  • Scissors
  • Glue or tape

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Just trace your bunnies onto card stock, punch holes in their ears, thread onto the ribbon, and glue on the tail.

Additionally, if you have older kids, they could make this banner craft for Easter to decorate the dining room or their bedroom. I would have loved to do this Easter craft growing up πŸ™‚

Kids that are older than toddlers, but not old enough to make the banner on their own, could practice their fine motor skills by threading the bunnies onto the ribbon.

Last, you could write a message across the bunnies – such as “Happy Easter” or “Jesus Has Risen.”

7. Easter Bunny Wreath Craft

Another fun decoration and Easter craft for kids to help with is an Easter bunny wreath. It’s one of those Easter crafts that can occupy kids for hours.
 
I cut bunnies out of foam, and then arranged them into a wreath. My son then painted the bunnies – and we hung it up on the wall.

How to Make a Bunny Foam Wreath

Easter Bunny Wreath Materials:

  • Easter Bunny template
  • Foam or even cardstock
  • Ribbon for hanging up
  • Glue
  • Scissors

The tricky part of this Easter bunny craft was arranging those bunnies in a perfect circle. So, I used a paper plate. I folded it in half, and then cut a circle from the inside – leaving just a thin outer ring.

I then used this ring to line the bunnies up in a perfect circle, carefully gluing the bunnies to each other.

Afterward, I had my son go to town decorating the bunnies with paint πŸ™‚ He loved it and painting all of the bunnies, and it kept his attention for a long time. It was definitely a kids’ craft success.

8. Easy Bunny Basket

Similar to the bunny bags listed above, glue an Easter bunny from the template to any kind of basket or container, and make a little Easter bunny basket. It’s a simple Easter craft that you can make from anything you have laying around your house.

I made this one with a empty plastic cashew container. I was about to toss it in recycling when the idea popped into my head.

Easter Bunny Basket Materials:

  • Easter Bunny template
  • Some kind of box or basket – look at your recycling for boxes πŸ™‚
  • Card stock or construction paper
  • Ribbon
  • Scissors
  • Glue

After washing out the cashew container, I cut and glued my card stock bunny template to the sides of the container. The top edge looked like it needed a little something extra – so I put ribbon about the perimeter. I then glued a bunny to the front, and voila – a recycled Easter basket craft!

This is a great project to do with kids who love holiday crafts. You can be as creative as you would like finding things to turn into Easter baskets. You could even use a pipe cleaner as the handle πŸ™‚

9. Easter Felt-Scape Craft

My number one crafting material is and will always be felt. So, my Easter crafts wouldn’t be complete without incorporating it.

My son also loves felt, and I’ve made him a few felt busy boxes. He plays with them during quiet time or even at church when he was younger.

The felt scenes occupy him for so long – and allow him to be creative.

So, why not make a 10-minute felt-scape with a bunny scene?

Easter Bunny Felt-Scape Materials:

  • Easter Bunny template
  • Felt
  • Piece of cardboard, foam, or something similar to glue the background to
  • Scissors
  • Glue

For this Easter bunny craft, first hot glue the background piece of felt to the cardboard or foam. Then, simply cut a few bunnies along with a few other shapes out of felt using the bunny template.

Don’t glue anything down but the background, as your child will have fun arranging and re-arranging these into a scene for a fun Easter DIY craft.

10. Easter Basket Tags

This one is a simple yet elegant Easter craft. Use the bunny template as tags to label Easter baskets, hostess gifts, or even the bottles of wine you’re bringing to Easter dinner.

All you need is the bunny template, a hole punch, ribbon, and a marker.

It certainly puts a cute touch on your gifts,  turning them into Easter crafts.

11. Easter Food Labels

With all of the food allergies and food preferences out there, I LOVE going to a party and seeing that the food is labeled. You know exactly what’s in something and whether it is for you – or not.

If you have a few extra bunnies laying around, simply write the names of your dishes on the cards (this is especially helpful for buffet-style meals), so your guests will be eating at ease.

If Easter dinner isn’t a buffet, use the bunny template as place cards – or even have your child decorate them as such.

12. Easter Bunny Garland

Last but not least, use the bunny template to create bunny garland. This is another quick craft that brings a lot of festivity.

Bunny Garland Easter Craft with free printable

Bunny Garland Materials:

  • Easter Bunny template
  • Fishing line (or ribbon)
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Tape​

Simply cut out about 6 bunnies for each string of garland using the bunny template. Then use a drop of hot glue or scotch tape to attach the bunny to the fishing line.

​It’s super a simple Easter craft and it turns out cute.

With this easy bunny template, you can create 12 simple Easter crafts. I’ve personally made all of them – and they are simple, easy ideas that are fun and festive.

​You can work along side your kids, crafting Easter banners while they decorate bunnies. Kids love doing things with their parents, so these ideas are perfect for just that πŸ™‚

With these simple do-it-yourself Easter crafts and free printable bunny template, you can most certainly bring simple festivity to your Easter holiday.
