Easy to make Easter craft – moss bunny

Can you believe Easter is right around the corner?!! This time of year really speeds by, which I am more than OK with. I love me some spring. Today I am sharing this Easy to make Easter craft – moss bunny.Simple Easter craft, making a moss Bunny that is perfectly Spring.

Easter is actually the holiday that we get to host with Dale’s family, his parents and sisters all host one Holiday a year at their home and we got Easter. I like to organize a fun egg hunt, crafts, yummy food and of course decorating my home too! Taking my forever used idea of DIYing or crafting decor items allows me to decorate my home for Easter without going broke. This little moss bunny is the perfect decoration for Easter!

Supplies needed

  • Roll of moss (purchased at a craft store)

  • Poster board or cardboard

  • Twine

  • Hot glue gun

  • (Optional) chalk board

The first step is to bring out your best Picasso, or you know elementary level drawing skills. Either way you will be fine. Draw a bunny shape into the poster board. Since this is being made it can be as big or small as you want. I chose one large bunny, but an adorable option would be a group of smaller bunnies or two matching sized ones.

Cut out the bunny shape. Then place the cut out on top of the moss paper that is turned over. Trace the bunny shape onto the back of the moss roll.

Perfect bunny!

I made sure that they are lined up and even. The final result is one moss bunny and one poster board bunny.

Putting a bunch of hot glue onto the poster board bunny.

Placing the moss bunny onto the poster board, making sure it is all lined up properly. The reason I used the poster board as well as the moss paper is to give the bunny more support. This gives me more options to use it in my Easter decor.

As a little added cuteness I tied a small bow with the twine.

That is it! I had this small chalk board already that I simply wrote “Happy Easter” on. Setting this in the center. The options for this Easy to make Easter craft – moss bunny are pretty endless. It can be sat as a centerpiece for a cute Easter tablescape, used as decor on a fireplace mantel, or even attached to a front door to greet guests.

I wanted to keep this open ended here for you guys, sharing this little cute bunny and how simple it is to make. Letting you decide how you will use it. The great thing about this is that because it was so quick and easy to make I can even make more of them if I decide I want a different sized one, or more than one. 

I also am able to sprinkle in some much needed Easter decor without spending a ton of money. Which means more loot in the Easter egg hunt, and more food for our family to enjoy while we celebrate this holiday. Easy to make Easter craft – moss bunny could even be a fun activity for older-ish kids to do during an Easter celebration. I think little toddlers or preschool aged kids might struggle with this, but my kids being 10, 8, and 6 would be able to do this with no difficulty. The plan is to purchase more moss paper and poster board, then let the kids make their own little Easter bunny during our Easter celebration.
