Craft Idea for Easter - Recycling Craft - Recycled Bottle Easter Bunny

The body of this bunny is actually a recycled smoothie bottle that would have ended up in the rubbish bin. The bottle had a shape that simply resembled a body and became just that.  Add a head and paper maché the figure to create a bunny that you and the kids can create for Easter.

 

 

Recycling Craft - Bottle Easter Bunny

For this project you will need:

- smoothie bottle or other small bottle
- styrofoam ball - size varies according the size of your
  bottle
- paper bags
- wallpaper glue
- white paint
- strong craft glue or hot glue
- fun foam for the ears and arms
- white and chenille stems for the ears and arms
- 1 x 6mm black wooden bead cut in half (eyes)
- 1 pink heart bead for the nose
- decorating elements such as a straw hat, flower button,
  small Easter basket, small wooden Easter eggs and a
  piece of fabric for a scarf
- acrylic flat beads
- jewel or bead glue

Paper Mache Rabbit Body
This is how the figure looked after adding the brown paper to the form and before it got painted white.

Instructions:

1. First of all, you will glue the styrofoam ball to the top of the bottle. Once this is dry, prepare your wallpaper glue in a small bowl. Tear your brown paper bag into small pieces and then dip each piece into the glue and adhere to the body. Continue until the entire body is covered with brown paper. Let this dry overnight.
2. Once the body is dry, paint it white and let the paint dry.
3. Print out the arm and bunny ear templates to a size that will fit your bunny and transfer these markings onto fun foam and cut out.

4. Now you will cover these fun foam arms and ears with chenille. Simply add glue to the fun foam and bend the chenille to fill in the areas. Within the ear, pink chenille will be used. Once these are dry, glue the arms to the body.
5. Glue the eyes and nose to the bunny’s face. Glue on the hat. Now glue the ears to the hat as you see in the picture. Glue a flower button to the hat.
6. Add a basket to the arms and fill it with wooden eggs to decorate.
7. Tie a piece of fabric around the neck as a scarf.
