Handmade Easter bunny

Hello, everyone. Today I wanted to share with you the cutest Easter craft idea.

The handmade Easter bunny in the basket was created by my friend (and pastor’s wife) Becky. I affectionately call her Bargain Becky.

Becky started with a pair of white gloves from Walmart. I think they are on sale now for 50 cents for two pairs.

You can see above that the fingers of the gloves make up the ears, arms, feet and tail of the bunny. The body of one of the gloves serves as the body of the rabbit. There is minimal sewing required for this project, which makes it especially appealing to me! Just stuff the gloves with polyester fiberfill and hand-stitch where necessary. Notice how Becky also hand-stitched a heart on the bunny’s bottom. How precious.

The tunic is made up of a scrap of fabric with arm holes cut out and a simple hem at the top with a strip of ribbon fed through it. Becky embellished the tunic with a bit of hot-glued ricrac.

Here’s a close-up look. Notice the buttons for eyes.

It think this is a great, inexpensive and creative Easter toy. I can’t wait to see Tiny’s reaction when she discovers her Easter basket this year.

In addition to the Easter bunny, this basket includes a jump rope, kazoos, a kid’s bath bar, a toothbrush and toothpaste, strawberry smoothie shampoo and lip balm. Of course, I plan to add (a little) candy, too. I’m waiting on a basket to arrive at my house from Hershey’s. They were one of the sponsors at Blissdom this year, and offered a free Easter basket for bloggers who were interested in sharing Easter tips, memories and traditions.

Do you have any unique Easter tips or crafts? I’d love for you to share them, too.
