Ultra Cute Origami Easter Bunnies with Cotton Bums

I know there’s been an influx of Easter-related posts on our blog – we’ve made a card and watercolored some eggs, and the next thing we’re going to share are bunnies! I’m not actually quite sure how bunnies are related to Easter, but a quick search on the web came up with a children’s story, a number of medieval church art inspirations and whatnot!

All I remembered was that as a child, whenever we had Sunday School, our teacher would often bring a bunny for the kids to see and pet. Being a competitive little kid, I challenged my teacher once why she would bring a bunny, but not allow any of us to bring it home as a prize. Frustrated, one of the teachers thought it was a bright idea to tell me that it is a prize if I answered all the questions correctly. I did. Threw a fit when I discovered it was all a scam. So sad!

Anyway – onto origami! And Easter bunnies! I admit – I did not create the origami design from scratch, it was creatively and masterfully designed by Jacky Chan (not THAT Jacky Chan), and I quickly learned how to fold it through Leyla Torres’ youtube video. It’s much easier to learn how to fold origami through a video!

Materials you need:

  1. Square sheets of origami paper (or any kind of patterned paper works as well!)
  2. Cotton Balls
  3. Chocolates or Candies you want to put inside the bunnies
  4. Glue gun

Step 1: Gather the materials and start folding the bunny origami.

Here’s a link to the Youtube video by Leyla Torres on how to fold the bunny origami:

End result is a pretty and cute bunny!

Step 2: Make more bunnies! When you’re done, heat up the glue gun and attach the cotton balls to the tail section of the bunny.

Step 3: Fill up the bunnies with as many chocolates or candies as you wish!

And with that, you have ultra-cute Origami Easter Bunnies with Cotton Bums! Enjoy folding and making them!
