How to Make Easter Bunny Eggs

DIY Easter Bunny Eggs Craft

Bunnies are such a big part of Easter decor and why not, they are charming, cute and adorable. My favorite bunnies are the lop eared bunnies.   They are just so sweet with their long floppy ears trailing down.  I really would love to have one as a pet, but it wouldn’t be fair to the rabbits because of my much loved dog. Lop eared bunnies really are adorable and they inspired these Easter bunny eggs.

You can either boil the eggs or blow them out. Just remember that there will be glue dots on the exterior of the shells,

How to Blow Out Easter Eggs

Blowing out real eggs is very easy, it takes a few steps and you may break a couple of eggs, but it does work well and you don’t need anything special to do it.

You will need:

Eggs

Towel

Bowl

Tape

Small-headed pin

Large sharp darning needle

Juice box straw

Wash the eggs, place on a clean towel with the needles,  straw, and a bowl.

g
Firmly grasp the egg.  Poke the egg in the pointed end first, apply steady pressure and twist.  You will feel the needle slowly grip and then drill through the eggshell.  This may take up to a minute or so, so be patient.

Once the small pin breaks the surface, apply tape over the hole.  This will help prevent cracking.

Insert the large darning needle.  Twirl it around gently and plunge in and out of the egg to break the yoke and sort of scramble the insides.

Using the small pin roughen up the edges enlarging the hole.

Repeat this on the other end.

Now that you have two holes. Cut the juice box straw and use just the little straight part.

Once this is done, run the egg under the tap to rinse out whatever little may be left inside.

You can then drain your eggs for two days, or do like I did and bake them at 300 F for ten minutes.  Let cool.

To Make the Bunny Easter Eggs

Besides the Bunny Ear template and the eggs, you will need.

Brown paper and pink paper
Tiny flowers
Glue dots (or hot glue)

Paste glue
Pencil
Sharpie pen (optional)

I was able to make the eggs out of my planner stash.  I prefer using the glue dots as it makes the eggs doable for children. I forgot to put the glue dots in the picture.

Cut brown and the pink ears using the hand-drawn template.  Glue the pink paper to the ear template with the glue stick.

Place your egg pointed side up and fold the ears around the egg so that they “flop”.

Draw a little face on the front of the egg with a pencil.  If you want the face to show up more do it first in pencil (it’s carefully erasable) and then with a fine tip Sharpie pen.

Do you think the Easter Egg Bunnies look better gathered together with their little ears folded under, or with them hanging down in an egg cup?  I  am not able to decide which I prefer and I only had four egg cups.

Happy Easter!

    1. Thank you for the pin, Marie. This year for whatever reason I am all about loped ear bunnies. Blowing out eggs seems daunting but it really is surprisingly simple.

    1. Hi Mary. I started by knowing I wanted to do something with brown eggs. Its so much neater than fussing around with dying them, got to love no dishes.

    1. Thank you so much for the pin Toni. I guess they do look like little bunny halos. I was just thinking Spring.

  1. LOL Leanna, I laughed when you said you huffed and you puffed and blew the egg out 😀 You sound like a big bad egg blowing wolf. The bunnies are so cute and I like the eggs dangling down from the egg cup. That makes them look even cuter

    1. Thanks for noticing Michelle. I felt funny doing it lol. I think I prefer the eggs with their lop ears hanging as well. Although I bought the fresh egg galvanized carton last fall with Easter in mind.

    1. Thank you Maria. I was wanting to create something that didn’t require dying anything. Glad you like them.

  2. Hi Leanna. This is my first visit to your beautiful blog. I followed your link via Creative Muster. Oh those Easter eggs are adorable! I remember blowing out eggs when I was a child but it didn’t turn out nearly as nice as yours. Thank you for sharing!

    1. Hi Gina, welcome. I am glad you enjoyed the blog, I am a new blogger and constantly learning how to make it nicer. Thank you very much for the positive feedback, it is much appreciated.

  3. Aw there’s nothing sweeter than a lop eared bunny. Your bunny eggs are absolutely adorable, I have to show the girls, they will want to make some right away. We have two bunnies and so anything bunny is always a hit!

    1. That’s awesome to hear Katrin. If you purchase those little scrapbook glue dots the girls should be able to do them independently. I hope you have fun with it.

    1. Hi Julie. It really isn’t too bad at all, if you want to keep them after wards, put them in an old egg carton. I tend to make new ones every year though so I don’t store them.

  4. These are so cute! I agree bunnies are adorable, especially when they are babies and just learning to hop. Thanks so much for sharing on Party in Your PJ’s!
