Michael Ann of Michael Ann Made shared with us this cute little bunny felt craft.Β This could be a fun craft to do with your kids who want to learn to sew by enlarging the pattern a few percent on a copy machine, and using yarn and a yarn sewing needle to stitch it together.Β The full tutorial and pattern can be found here.

This craft requires adult’s supervision as the use of needle is needed.

Thank you Michael Ann for this lovely sharing.

Remember the Happy Family Chicken Eggs we just did? Remember the Easter Egg Bunny? All we need to do now is make a basket to keep them nicely together πŸ™‚

Easter Egg Basket. The Happy Chicken Family and their friend, the Easter Bunny πŸ™‚

Cut an empty egg carton. We'll need only four 'nests'.

Trim the sides and paste double-sided tape. Stick a strip of crepe paper all around it.

In case you're wondering how to prepare the crepe paper, just cut a strip and fold. Then trim one end so that it's a little bit rounded.

Use a hole punch and punch a hole each on both sides of the basket. Put a pipe cleaner through it and twist to secure. The Easter Egg Basket is done πŸ™‚

A great way to decorate your wall, notice board, posters or anything is to add this cute paper chain rabbit.
Take a strip of paper. Fold it lapping each other.
Draw a rabbit, making sure the nose and the tail touches the folded area. This is to ensure your rabbits will be chained to each other.
Use a paper punch and punch out a hole for the eyes. Cut along the lines and you’ll get your cute paper chain rabbit!
