Before starting this project, you’ll need the following materials:
I’m SO excited to work on Easter crafts again with the boys. One of the first crafts I want to make this year were toilet paper roll Easter rabbits.
We made TP roll Easter bunnies last year, but wanted to give these a fresh spin!
As with ALL my crafts, I made a quick trip to Michaels for supplies. I had most of the supplies on hand for this one, BUT I just needed the perfect scrapbook paper.
I was so lucky and found all these DIFFERENT shades of gingham and fell in love with ’em!
Step 1 – Create Your Rabbit’s Body
I pre-cut the rabbits bodies, so my son was able to glue them on HIMSELF. We applied glue along the backside of the paper and gently wrapped it around the toilet paper roll.
We then secured the scrapbook paper with TWO clothespins.
Step 2 – Make Your Bow Tie
This step was super easy…all we did was COVER the bow tie noodles in glue and sprinkle them with glitter!! Easy as that.
Step 3 – Add Your Rabbit’s Face
My son added his eyes, nose and mouth all by himself. The eyes went on perfect with the glue, BUT the pom pom nose was not so easy.
With the eyes and nose IN PLACE, take your black marker and draw on your bunny’s mouth and whiskers. That’s it!
Quick Tip: If the nose ISN’T sticking, I suggest using a little hot glue to keep in place.
Step 4 – Make Your Rabbit’s Ears
I decided to do the rabbits ears myself. I folded AND glued together my scrapbook paper and let dry 20 minutes. Once the glue was DRY, I cut in half.
Then, I added a little glue to the bottom and used a clothespin to secure in place for 20 minutes.
When I added the ears to the rabbit, I dabbed a little glue at the BOTTOM and once again used my “Handy Dandy” clothespins to keep in place.
Side Note: Like crafting with the kids, but looking for an Easter craft for you? Check out my easy-to make washi tape thread spool Easter carrots!
Step 5 – Finishing Touches
Once the face was DRY, we hot glued on our rabbits’ bow ties and hair bows!
They turned out super cute. My son was really excited to show off his rabbits to everyone. I’m really GLAD he still gets excited with all our craft projects :)
Once again, our crafting time was a SUCCESS!! We had lots of fun and some laughs while creating a special memory together.
That’s my favorite part…creating the memories.

I hope my boys look back (when they get older) and remember these times. Because I know there will be a time making toilet paper roll rabbits with mom WON’T be fun…
