How to Make a Washcloth Bunny
Read all of the steps before starting.
- Step 1: Project Preparation
Read through the project then gather the materials needed for
making the washcloth bunny. If you are doing this craft with a group
of children, pre-cut the ribbon and make a supply bag for each child.
Smaller children will need help folding the washcloth and putting on
the rubber band.
- Step 2: Roll Washcloth
Fold the washcloth in half on the diagonal to form a triangle.
Tightly roll the folded washcloth from the open corner to the long
- Step 3: Fold Washcloth
Fold the rolled washcloth in half. Next, fold the washcloth in
half again, turning the loose ends back towards the first fold.
- Step 4: Form Head
Place a rubber band around the washcloth about 2" (4 cm) from the
second fold. This forms the head of the bunny, with its ears sticking
out from the rubber band.
Cut a 12" to 14" length of ribbon, wrap it over the the rubber
band, and make a bow. Pull the bunny ears into place and fluff them
out a bit.
- Step 5: Add Eyes and Nose
Glue the wiggly eyes and pom-pom nose on the bunny's head to make
a cute little face.
Tip: Use the washcloth bunny as an Easter egg holder by placing
the egg in the cloth ring behind the bunny's head.
That's it! Your bunny is done!
