Before starting this project, you’ll need the following materials:
I saw the idea for these cute toilet paper roll rabbits on Pinterest. I just had to make them today’s craft with my 4 year old. We love a toilet paper roll craft!
I have a box full of toilet paper rolls in my garage. We really had a great time with this one. My little guy got pretty serious about making his rabbits.
I was already stocked up on my supplies, but your local craft store or even Wal-Mart will have all the items you need.
For the pom pom balls, I got a large bag of assorted ones at Michael’s. I used my “Handy Dandy” 40% off coupon of course.
You know me and coupons, love that 40% off. I take all the kids with me when I go out because you can use a coupon for each person that’s with you at Michael’s.
Step 1 – Paint Your Toilet Paper Rolls
I had my son paint one coat on each rabbit and make sure he painted the inside of the toilet paper roll as well.
Step 2 – Paint Your Rabbit Ears
I used popsicle sticks for the rabbits ears. I had my son paint a layer of white paint onto the popsicle sticks. While the white paint was still wet, we added some extra colors in the middle.
Step 3 – Create Your Rabbit Faces
My little guy dabbed on some glue and gently added his eyes. Mama took over with the whiskers and mouth part. I used some puffy paint I had to create my whiskers and mouth.
Quick Tip: After you paint the mouth, DON’T sit them upright. My mouths started drooping and teeth got messed up.
Step 4 – Finishing Touches
Once the puffy paint was dry, I went back over with my “Trusty” glue gun and added our rabbits ears, nose and bushy tails. I could have used regular glue but I love how the hot glue dries really fast.
Aren’t these just the cutest rabbits you’ve ever seen? I don’t want to put them away after Easter.
This was a craft we both worked on together, he totally could have done it by himself but I really wanted to try using the puffy paint with this one. I hope you enjoyed our cute little toilet paper roll rabbits!
