Step 1

Use a ruler to measure 1 x 2 inch section on a paper plate. Repeat with remaining paper plate.

Step 2

Paint the smooth part of the back of the smaller sections of paper plates with pink paint. These will be the ears.

Step 3

Form the basket by gluing the remaining pieces of paper plates together. Once dry, glue the painted pieces to the inside. Use scissors to cut the pipe cleaners in half to use later.


Step 4

Create a cute bunny face by sticking on googly eyes and gluing 3 pipe cleaners on the left and right side of the plate. Use a black marker to draw a nose and then finish off with a piece of heart-shaped felt. Complete the basket by sticking on the bunny feet.


Step 5

Turn it over and use a hole punch to make 2 holes on either side. Tie a long ribbon through the holes to create the handle. Lastly, stick a cotton wool to the bottom on the back to create the tail.
