Milk Bottle Bunnies: A Fun & Easy Easter Craft

Milk Bottle Bunny

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.


List of Materials

Bunny  Bottles 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

  1. Clean the bottles inside and out and let them dry
  2. Apply one coat of white pain and let dry
  3. Apply additional coats until you get a nice thick finish (I used three coats)

Add Three Coats of Paint

  1. Once the bottles are dry, plan out how you want to arrange the bunny’s face
  2. With a glue gun, apply the eyes
  3. Cut two, two pieces of jewelry string two inches each
  4. Fold each piece in half and glue at the middle on to the pink pom pom


  1. Once the glue is dry, snip the looped ends to create whiskers
  2. Add more whiskers if you would like
  3. Apply the nose under the eyes with a dot of glue
  4. Draw the bunny’s mouth under the nose with a thin black marker
  5. Add a dot of pink paint to each cheek
  6. Cut out foam ears (I used the ears from the foam masks purchased from the dollar store)
  7. Glue the ears with the glue gun just above the eyes
  8. Tie a pink bow around the top of the bottle
  9. Add your child’s favourite breakfast drink & straw (make sure that no paint or materials got inside the bottles as you were creating them)


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.
