Easter Bunnies

***Edited to Add More Pictures!!!***

Yesterday we made these cute wash cloth bunnies...but I zonked out early and didn't get a chance to post last night! So here they are with some instruction on how to make them. I want thank my MIL, she taught me how to make them EONS ago when James & I were first married.


Here are the supplies I used. Cheap Wal-Mart wash cloths, ribbon, rubber bands, pink pompoms, googly eyes, cotton balls & plastic eggs. First, take a wash cloth and lay it flat. Pick two opposite corners and roll them tightly into the center.


Then fold your newly rolled wash cloth in half.


Fold the ends back about half way. I bring the tips back to the main fold. This creates the bunnies ears and face.

Then I grab around the folded up wash cloth...about in the middle. This is where you're going to put your rubber band.


Put your rubber band in place. This makes the bunnies head and it should look something like this.



Then you just need to glue your eyes, pink pompom & tail in place. Use a piece of colorful ribbon to tie around the bunnies neck to hide the rubber band.



Taa Daa!! Cute little bunnies that hold an Easter Egg. Louie gave these to his teachers this year and we filled the eggs with jelly beans.

Ok I'm gonna have to ask you to PLEASE try to post a pick of the rolled to center and then folded in half. I am having a super blond moment and I CAN NOT figure this out. Sorry I'm a dork....

When my kids and grandkids were little I made these and called them boo-boo bunnies. You can put an ice cube in them to soothe boo-boos. They loved them and the bunny took their mind off their little scrapes. Thanks for this ..

I love these, made 10 to scatter around the garden on Monday, my kids had their cousins round, big hit. I couldn't make my googly eyes look anything but scarey so I cut a circle and drew a face on then stuck it to the head! Thanks for sharing! ;o)

my mom made these when we were little and we called them the "boo-boo bunny." she would put an ice cube in the middle of the bunny to help a boo boo feel better!
