Washcloth Bunny

What you will make:

What could be more fun than making a cute little bunny for Easter? Start with a washcloth, and in no time you'll have a little sweetie to add to an Easter basket, give as a gift or use as a decoration that doubles as an Easter egg holder!

This project is great for family, classroom or group craft time. With a little preparation by the adult or teen leader, this is a quick craft.

Bonus idea: You could also make a bunch of bunnies to give as a baby shower gift—just leave off the eyes and nose. They go perfectly with a diaper wedding cake.

Here's what you need:
  • Washcloth
  • Rubber band
  • Ribbon
  • Wiggly eyes
  • Small pom-poms
  • Glue
  • Scissors (to cut ribbon)

This project is rated VERY EASY to do.

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 side.

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!

Thanks to Sandi Kern for sharing this craft idea with Aunt Annie's Craft Exchange back in 1996.

Sandi commented, "I have to come up with a lot of creative ideas as a stay-at-home mother of three boys."

Tip: Washcloth bunnies make great baby shower gifts. Buy a set of washcloths and make washcloth bunnies without the eyes and nose. They still look cute, and the new mother can take them apart to use.
