Bunny In A Basket Easter Craft

Bunny In A Basket Easter Craft

As you have probably gathered from our previous craft posts, we are very lucky to work with Hobbycraft throughout the year creating fun crafts to do at home. Today I am sharing another easy peasy craft with you. As the shelves in the shops fill up with every kind of Easter egg you could possibly imagine, we have been busy making this super easy bunny in a basket craft. If you are after some more Easter crafts then why not check out our Easter bouquet craft or help yourself to our free Easter printables.

Easter Bunny In A Basket

What you will need

Grey yarn

Pom Pom maker

Sheets of pink and grey felt


Shredded tissue paper

Carrot treat containers

Chocolate/sweets for fillers


I started with making two pom poms. I used the 9cm pom pom maker for the body and the 7cm for the head.

When you tie your length of yarn around your pom poms be sure to leave enough to tie the two lengths together when you join the body to the head.

Then cut your ears out of the felt sheets. As you can see by mine, they don’t have to be perfect. I just cut mine out freehand.

I then used my glue gun to stick the pink layer on and glued the bottoms and pinched together. This will make them more stable and easier to attach to the head.

You can add some eyes and a nose if you wish. I had some beads, so used those. However, if this is for a small child then these would not be suitable.

Everyone loves a bit of chocolate at Easter! So I popped some mini oreo eggs into our cool carrot fillers.

After the treats were done, I filled our multicoloured basket with this lovely bright green shredded tissue paper and popped everything in.

    My sister used to make these animals for me when I was a child. I haven’t seen any for years. They were so much fun. So glad to see them again.

    Aww! That is just adorable! What a fab craft idea for this time of year…I haven’t made pom poms for years. I used to love to as a child. There was no pom pom maker though it was always two pieces of cardboard. lol #MMBC

    So cute. I will definitley get the kids making these during the Easter Holidays. Like you I love arts and crafts and spend a small fortune on materials between Hobbycraft and Amazon. Love finding new projects to try. 🙂

    Aww this is so sweet, my five year old daughter would love to make this, I will have to do buy the tools and craft stuff and make it this week for her as she has an easter bonnet parade in school, I could then incorporate this idea onto a bonnet, thank you very much for sharing xXx

    My daughter loves making pom-poms so I’m sure we’ll be giving this a go. So far we’ve made some easter bunting and just got some Easter themed cake toppers so we can make a selection of cakes.
