Easter Crafts – Make your own dress up bunny paper doll, Easter eggs and houses with our free printable download.
Materials & Tools:
- Cardboard (I used cereal packaging in this project)
- Craft glue
- Small blade (optional, used to cut in the small corners)
- Paint brushes (various sizes)
- Acrylic or water colour paints
- Jar of water
- Paint mixing tray
- Printer – download the printable sheets below and print at 100% Choose either the colour in sheets or the coloured sheets.
Note: I have added two types of the printable download above, one is designed to be coloured in with paint, crayons or markers and is called the Bunny Paper Doll Colour In Printable. They other one is a full colour printable, which can be printed on a home colour laser printer. If you want to use this one only follow the cardboard and gluing sections below.
How to Make:
Cut out each of the paper sections along the outside lines, apart from the bunny. I find it is best to leave some paper around the bunny as it makes it easier to glue it to the cardboard. Match each or the pieces with a section of cardboard large enough.
Cut out two of the house stands, three small Easter egg stands, one large Easter egg stand, one bunny stand and one handbag stand from cardboard using the stand patterns as templates only. You can trace around the template with a pencil and cut out. Also, using a ruler and side of the scissors or the blade score along the dotted line to create the fold.
The dress, scarf and flowers for the Bunny’s head do not need to be glued to any cardboard.
Glue the houses, easter eggs, basket and bunny to the cardboard and then cut out.
When the glue is completely dry, colour in each section with your favourite colours. I used acrylic paints below, but feel free to use whatever you have to hand.
Once all the pieces have been coloured, and dry if using paint. The final step is to add on the stands.
To do this, cover the folded section of the stand with glue and attach to the back of each piece, hold in place until is it stuck firmly.
Pop up each of the sections to create a bunny village and maybe you could hide the eggs and go on an Easter egg hunt.
Why not print the houses at 70% to make smaller versions and create a bigger village.
Print out extra Easter egg patterns, add string to the top to make decorations for an Easter tree.
