With their long ears and fluffy tails, bunnies are fun craft subjects. Especially now, with Easter just a month away.

Last year we used paper rolls to make a few cute bunnies. This year we’re going for a paper plate bunny craft.

The bunny turned out so adorable that we’re planning to hang it over the fireplace as decoration. My 3-year old was in charge of creating it and he did a wonderful job.

We experimented pom pom painting for the first time with our paper plate Earth  and used the same technique now, too.

It’s just so easy and fun. I bet you’ll see it again in our crafts.

How to make a paper pate bunny craft

Step 1: Download the bunny template (find it at the end of the article), print it on paper and cut it out. 

Trace the bunny shape on contact paper, cut it out and stick in in the middle of the paper plate.

Step 2: Squeeze paint onto the paper plate, around the bunny. We used 3 colors: yellow, red and orange only because we had a red pom pom for tail and wanted the background to match the pom pom. But you can use any other colors.

Step 3: Pinch the pom pom with a clothespin and use it to spread the paint onto the paper. Tap and make dots with the pom pom until you have covered the entire paper plate.

Step 4: Once you are done painting, peel off the contact paper.

TIP: Don’t wait for the paint to dry out before you peel off the contact paper. Instead do it right after you’re done painting even if this means you’ll get your fingers dirty while doing it.

Step 5: Glue the pom pom at the bottom of the bunny.
