Add a fun little Easter bunny to your Easter baskets with this felt candy holder. This Easter bunny is so cute and filled with yummy Easter candy, you almost won't want to give him away.
I'm pretty sure I have told you before that my husband and I met when I was only 12 years old. We've known each other a LONG time. It took a "few" years for me to come around to his way of thinking and become more than friends, but sometimes I wonder if our moms knew that one day it would happen.
Years ago, Dear Hubby's mom gave me a cute Easter Bunny bag filled with sweet treats. At the time, I wasn't much of a crafter but I thought it was the neatest thing so I've been toting it around with me through the years.
This year, I decided to recreate the bunny for my kids. (But I'm certainly NOT giving it to any of their "crushes", I've seen where that leads!)
I started by making a bunny head template out of card stock. You can use mine if you want.
Then I cut it out of white felt. I used colored yarn (a different color for each kid) and a running stitch to stitch up the ears and sides of the face. I didn't stitch between the ears to allow for the candy.
Next I cut a white pipe cleaner into thirds for the whiskers and used 2 white pom poms and a slightly smaller orange pom pom to make the mouth.
I glued those to the bunny head and added wiggly eyes.
Finally, I filled it with Hershey kisses. If you want, you can tie the ears into a soft knot to secure the candy, but I haven't had any trouble with it falling out.
Even though I have a family of mostly boys, I thought this cute Easter bunny just needed a bow to finish her off. I'm sure the boys will end up rolling their eyes at that, but sometimes they know my craziness and just roll with it.
