The Best Bunny Masks

It’s finally spring! For those of you who celebrate Easter, we’ve researched some of the cutest Bunny Masks to sit at your table.

Having a craft on hand when you’re entertaining a large group can calm kids and help them focus. It can also be a great “ice breaker” for cousins or relatives who are shy. For your reference, here are our faves:

1. Playful Learning’s Printable Bunny Mask

We loved this because it came with a printable and was super easy to make. We added a few more details (a paper nose, white whiskers with white crayon or chalk) to make the craft last a bit longer. Kids really loved wearing these.

2. Mer Mag’s DIY Bunny Mask via Petite Magazine

If you follow her you know Mer Mag is the coolest crafter there is. Her super hip designs always make me swoon and these were ideal for kids who didn’t want to “wear” a mask.

3. Homelife’s How to make a Bunny Mask

I loved the “outdoor component” to this craft. Anything that involves everyone going outside on a hunt is my BAG. In this case, it was to find the leaves. We ended up using magnolia leaves from my planter but hey…we were outside :)

Materials to make a Cloche: 5″ vase (Dollar Store), 2″ votive (Dollar Store), 1″ Wood Bead (Michaels or Dollar Store), Birch Disk (Michaels or your own backyard if you have a saw) & Flowers.

 

DIY Cloche

Flip the vase over. Glue the Wood Bead to the centre of the top.

It’s easiest if you put the hole side down – so glue can fill the hole a bit.

Glue vase onto the centre of the birch disk.

Let glue cool for a few minutes before adding water.

Mini cloche arrangement

Add water and flowers. We used 1 large light pink carnation, two dark ruby pink mini carnations and some greenery. All were purchased at the grocery store (since it’s February right now and my garden is frozen!)
