DIY Easter bunny favours
24 Mar 2021
While the kids may be sorted with Easter egg hunts, don’t forget the adults - keep them sweet with these Easter bunny favours, filled with some of their favourite holiday treats.
You will need:
- Serviettes or plain, lightweight fabric (we recommend recycling old sheets or using offcuts cut to 27x27cms and double hemmed)
- Artist brushes, including liner brush
- Resene testpots in your choice of colours — Leigh used Resene Fountain Blue and Resene Golden Tainoi for the napkins and Resene Wild Thing and Resene Pelorous for the beads
- Mini Easter eggs
- Large hole wooden beads (Leigh used 35mm beads)
Step one: Take the serviette and unfold it twice into a larger square.
Step two: Paint your pattern onto the different squares. We did horizontal lines on ours, in different colours. Once dry, fold diagonally from each side to form creases.
Step three: Take the large beads and paint in complementary colours.
Step four: Once dry, use the liner brush to paint a bunny face onto each one.
Step five: With the square open, place mini Easter eggs into the middle.
Step six: Pinch two corners of the side together, using the creases to pull the serviette or fabric in between to the centre. Repeat on the other side to create a boat-like shape.
Step seven: Wrap at centre, to create a bag for the eggs, with the bunny ears at top.
Step eight: Twist until the top is able to fit its way through the bead hole.
Step nine: Pull the bunny ears through the beads and separate them to perfect the shape.
Step ten: Finish with a ribbon bow around the bunny’s neck.
