Helpful Tips and FAQs

How to cut holes in the foam egg without a cutting tool.

If you don’t have or don’t want to invest in a foam cutter, you can cut the holes for the ears using an X-Acto Knife. Start by cutting a small section out for the ears and work in a circle until you have a hole big enough.

You could also cut small slits for the ears, however, you won’t get the rounded ear look.

Tips for using Real Eggs instead of foam.

This tutorial can easily be used on regular eggs. They make a super cute miniature Easter Egg Bunny. Make certain the egg is thoroughly blown out and rinsed out with water and then allowed to dry completely before starting. A darning needle does a good job of piercing the holes for the ears. To add strength to the shell of the egg, you can give it a couple of coats of Modge Podge before starting to make the bunny.

You will need a much smaller sock. a baby sock or newborn mitten fits pretty well.

DIY Easter Egg Bunny Instructions

Using a Cricut cutting machine

Download our free Easter Egg Bunny pattern pieces from our free resource library.

When you have uploaded the design onto the Cricut canvas, resize it to fit the size of your egg.

Once you have resized, add an oval from the shapes toolbar. The oval should be big enough for the bunny to sit on, with extra space to glue on the leg and foot pieces.

Making the Ears

1 – Using the pattern provided in our free resource library, cut the outside ear pieces and the outside foot pieces from the stiff felt. (A cutting machine and printable pattern are available)

2 – Cut the inner ears and inside paw prints from a contrasting colour felt.

3 – Using your hot glue gun, glue the inner ear pieces to the outer ear. Using tweezers for this step can help with placement and prevent burns. Let dry.

The Bunny Body

1 – Mark on the top of the styrofoam egg, where the ears will go.

2 – Using the foam cutting tool, make a hole on each mark for the ears.

3 – Insert the ears and make sure they fit. If they don’t fit, make the hole a little bigger.

4 – Once you have the proper size holes, set the ears aside.

5 – Insert the egg into the sock and pull it tight.

6 – Apply hot glue to the top of the egg, adhering the sock to the egg. Do Not Cover The Ear Holes.

7 – Trim off the remaining sock, leaving a little to go around the ears.

5 – Add the thin maribou feather boa piece around the base of the ears, going all the way around the egg.

Adding the face

1 – Using your cutters or a pair of junky scissors, cut off the back of the button.

2 – Using the chalk lightly mark out the face of the bunny.

4 – Add a bead of hot glue where the nose will be and attach the button.

5 – Using the puff fabric paint, add the face. Allow the Easter Bunny egg to dry completely before the next steps. Overnight is ideal.
