How to Make a Paper Plate Bunny Craft
Step 1: Put the Plates Together
- Cut a slit in one of your plates about 2 inches wide and an inch deep.
- Fold up the flap you just cut and add a generous layer from your glue stick.
- Overlap the 2 places by about an inch or so.
- Glue the plates together by press the flap onto the other plate. Press firmly and hold until the glue takes hold.
Step 2: Use the Bunny Craft Template
- Download and print the bunny craft template.
- Use it to cut out all the parts for your bunny craft, including 2 ears, the snout, 2 back feet and 2 front feet.
- We chose to use white construction for all of the parts. But a light gray would also work for the snout.
Step 3: Put It Together
- Glue all of the pieces for your bunny into place using your glue stick, except the ears.
Step 4: Add the Ears
- Use your marker to draw and color the centers of the rabbit’s ears.
- Glue them in place on the back of the head and fold them down however you would like to form “floppy” ears.
Step 5: Draw Some Details on Your Bunny Craft
- Put the googly eyes in place (or the paper eyes if you prefer)
- The use your markers to add more details to the bunny’s face, including whiskers and eyebrows or whatever you like.
Step 6: Finish It Off
- Finish off your bunny by useing the Elmer’s glue to add a white fluffy pompom tail.
- Then also glue his little pink pompom nose in place also.
Now that you know how to make this paper plate bunny craft, it’s time to really make it your own. We used traditional white for our bunny, but you can choose any colors you would like, even blue with yellow stripes or pink with green polka dots. Or make him totally white and give him an orange tail. The only limit is your imagination.
