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:
- Square sheets of origami paper (or any kind of patterned paper works as well!)
- Cotton Balls
- Chocolates or Candies you want to put inside the bunnies
- 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!
