Spring is such a happy season. I am seeing lots of baby bunnies in my yard. They are the cutest creatures. My grandson enjoys watching them hop around the yard eating the weeds. I have a garden which I just planted some lettuce. I had to add chicken wire around them so the deer and rabbits would not eat them. I left one of the lettuces exposed so they could nibble on some. Now I have 3 bunnies coming each morning. In the spirit of Easter and these cute bunnies I created some pine cone bunnies. These are a great pine cone crafts for kids.
As you all may know that follow me I love pinecones, they have amazing shapes, they are free and you can make so many seasonal crafts with them. My grand son who loves to be outside with me likes to go on walks to pick up pinecones. This is a great craft to get your child connected with nature, and teaching him how to create something. So clear a table and learn how to make pine cone Easter bunnies.
Pine Cone Bunnies
- Pine cones
- Hot glue gun
- Glue Stick
Cutting The Ears and Whiskers
With a pencil draw some long bunny ears on the cardboard and cut them out. Cut some twine for the whiskers.
My grandson still a toddler and he just watched. He was busy playing ball with the pine cones.
To Make The Eyes & Nose:
I have lots of vintage buttons and beads. So I found 2 small white ones, 2 smaller black beads for eyes. One small cone shape bead for the nose.
Glue the 2 white buttons on the pine cone. Glue the 2 black beads on top of the white buttons to create the eyes.
Take the twine and insert through the hole on the bead. Add some glue to the back of the bead and glue it on the pine cone and create the nose.
Glueing and Painting The Ears Into The Pine Cone:
I made several different kinds of ears. Here I created 4 ears, 2 large ears and 2 small ones. I painted the larger ears with brown acrylic paint and the smaller ones white. After the large ears dry add a little glue to the edge and stick them into the pine cone. Do the same with the white-painted ears and glue them below the brown ears. The white gives them a nice contrast.
For this cute pine cone bunny I gave him green eyes. I glued the white buttons first and glued two green beads on top of the buttons.
