We have shared many Easter crafts for kids over the years and plenty of toilet paper roll craft ideas. So, as Easter approached and we looked at our ever-growing empty toilet paper roll pile and decided to put it to good use making toilet paper roll bunnies…well, toilet paper roll Easter bunnies to be specific.

These little bunnies turned out so well! I love their sweet, little squat bodies. They were super simple to make. In fact, we are planning on making a whole bunch more to gift to my nieces and nephews.
I know you have a few spare toilet paper rolls kicking around your house. Let’s put them to good use.
Toilet Paper Roll Easter Bunny
toilet paper rolls
white pom poms
acrylic paints – black, blue, red, yellow and white
cardstock – white, spring colours
The first step is drawing the ears on your toilet paper rolls. Find the side of the toilet paper roll that has the smoothest surface, this will be your bunny face side. Two loops for the ears and a line all the way around. Now trim off the excess and round out the Easter bunny ears.
Next up is painting the bunnies. What Easter colours do you like? You could totally go for a grey bunny colour – that’s more realistic. We decided to paint our cheerful Easter pink, yellow and blue. It will take a couple of coats of paint to get the coverage you like. Set them aside to dry completely.
Now it’s time to add the details. We cut the white inner ear pieces from white card stock and used double-sided tape to adhere them in place.
We painted the eyes, nose and mouth on the bunnies using black paint and a paintbrush. You could totally use googly eyes, but I liked the idea of painting the faces on.
We used colourful cardstock to wrap around the bunny’s bodies. I like the idea of giving them colourful outfits, like the Easter Bunny my daughter had her taken with when she was a baby. Finally, finish off the bunnies with pompom tails…of course! Use a glue gun to adhere the tail in place.
I thought about giving these bunnies feet, like our toilet paper roll love bugs, that would look cute too. Add all the details you like. Have fun
What to do with your toilet paper roll Easter Bunnies?
Well, Easter is all about hiding chocolates. What if you placed bunnies around the house and filled them with chocolates. They also would make a lovely addition to the Easter dinner table. I have other plans for our bunnies. They’re going on a new spring wreath!
