I'm pretty sure I have told you before that my husband and I met when I was only 12 years old. We've known each other a LONG time. It took a "few" years for me to come around to his way of thinking and become more than friends, but sometimes I wonder if our moms knew that one day it would happen.
Years ago, Dear Hubby's mom gave me a cute Easter Bunny bag filled with sweet treats. At the time, I wasn't much of a crafter but I thought it was the neatest thing so I've been toting it around with me through the years.
This year, I decided to recreate the bunny for my kids. (But I'm certainly NOT giving it to any of their "crushes", I've seen where that leads!)
I started by making a bunny head template out of card stock. You can use mine if you want.
Then I cut it out of white felt. I used colored yarn (a different color for each kid) and a running stitch to stitch up the ears and sides of the face. I didn't stitch between the ears to allow for the candy.
Next I cut a white pipe cleaner into thirds for the whiskers and used 2 white pom poms and a slightly smaller orange pom pom to make the mouth.
I glued those to the bunny head and added wiggly eyes.
Finally, I filled it with Hershey kisses. If you want, you can tie the ears into a soft knot to secure the candy, but I haven't had any trouble with it falling out.
Even though I have a family of mostly boys, I thought this cute Easter bunny just needed a bow to finish her off. I'm sure the boys will end up rolling their eyes at that, but sometimes they know my craziness and just roll with it.
