Milk Bottle Bunnies: A Fun & Easy Easter Craft
Surprise your children Easter morning by serving their juice or milk in these cute Milk Bottle Bunnies.
Super-easy and inexpensive to make, these sweet milk bottles turned Easter Bunnies are a fun way to decorate and celebrate Easter.
Below I’ll share the steps to make them; you can create them alone and surprise your kids on the big day or include your kids in creating the craft with you for a fun Easter activity.
MILK BOTTLE EASTER BUNNIES
List of Materials
- Glass bottles (Milk bottles from the dollar store)
- White Acrylic Paint
- Pink Acrylic Pain
- Pink pom poms
- Jewelry string
- Pink & white foam for ears
- Pink ribbon
- Googly eyes
- Glue gun & glue
- Black marker
- Straws (optional)
Steps to Make the Bunnies
- Clean the bottles inside and out and let them dry
- Apply one coat of white pain and let dry
- Apply additional coats until you get a nice thick finish (I used three coats)
- Once the bottles are dry, plan out how you want to arrange the bunny’s face
- With a glue gun, apply the eyes
- Cut two, two pieces of jewelry string two inches each
- Fold each piece in half and glue at the middle on to the pink pom pom
- Once the glue is dry, snip the looped ends to create whiskers
- Add more whiskers if you would like
- Apply the nose under the eyes with a dot of glue
- Draw the bunny’s mouth under the nose with a thin black marker
- Add a dot of pink paint to each cheek
- Cut out foam ears (I used the ears from the foam masks purchased from the dollar store)
- Glue the ears with the glue gun just above the eyes
- Tie a pink bow around the top of the bottle
- Add your child’s favourite breakfast drink & straw (make sure that no paint or materials got inside the bottles as you were creating them)
CUSTOMIZE YOUR BUNNIES
As you can see in the photo, I made two very similar bunnies with small differences. You can add customizations to yours too – the possibilities are endless.
