Amidst my recuperation from foot surgery, I decided I had to make something cute for the kids’ Easter egg hunt this year.
Here’s the idea I came up with for bunny Easter baskets / treat boxes, using the cardboard noodle boxes that I already had.
Instructions are as follows:
- Cut ears into the front flap of the box.
- Cut off the other three flaps and save.
- Cut feet from one flap. I kept both feet on a single piece.
- Cut a face from another flap.
- For extra detail cut out a nose and ear inners. I used pink coloured card for ease.
- Using a hot glue gun, attach the nose to the face, the ear inners to the ears, and then attach the face and feet to the box.
- Draw on eyes, mouth, paws, whiskers etc.
- Attach a pompom tail.
- Give to squealing children to fill with chocolate (or the other way around).
That’s all I had time for. The Easter egg hunt was a bit of a rush with random eggs hidden amongst our forever-mess that is our house (the garden was the worse option, let’s say…). Hope your hunts are better organised. Happy Easter!
