I made these little bunny cups as an alternative to buying easter eggs for my nieces and nephews as they get enough. They are half filled with sweets, mini eggs and chocolate coins and they are pretty cute! They are very simple to make, and you don’t need to go by what I used to create them. They would look just as effective with – card, paper, funky foam, cotton wool balls, buttons, sticker dots….you can use whatever you have to hand and in whatever colours you like – WIN!
A silver party cup
Grey and pink felt for the ears
Pink and white pompoms
Stick on eyes
Sharpie pen for the whiskers
- Pink tissue paper for inside
Take the cup and add a nose, ensure the seam of the cup is at the back to make it neater. I used a hot glue gun here as it’s quick but white gloopy glue would work fine.
Add two pompoms just under the nose.
Draw whiskers and a mouth.
Cut two bunny shaped ears in two different colours with one colour being smaller than the other.
Place the smaller one on top of the other and glue in place. If you are having two sticky up ears do this to both. If you are having one droopy ear then leave off the second smaller inner ear as in this photo.
Glue the ears on the inside of the front of the cup.
Add some glue to the tip of the ear with no inner piece and glue down to the side of the eye.
….I love him…..I’d be happy to receive this little dude!
Add some scrunched up tissue paper to the base to fill out some of the room in there.
Fill with goodies 🙂
Make as many as you need. My little one decided we had to have some with two sticky up ears, all I need to do now is fill them all up and they are ready to go!
