Easter Bunny Paper Plate Basket Craft

Here's yet another Easter paper plate basket craft. After finishing, fill with grass and Easter goodies.


  • 1 paper plate
  • thin strip of pink construction paper for the handle
  • 2 long white paper ears with matching pink pieces
  • black pipe cleaners
  • 1 tiny red pom pom for the nose
  • 1 big white pom pom for the tail
  • black pencil to draw eye or eye stickers
  • stapler
  • scissors
  • tape
  • glue


  1. Make the nose and whiskers first. Cut 4 pieces of pipe cleaner about 3 inches long. Put 3 pieces together for the whiskers and tie in the middle with the 4th piece, leaving a long "tail" part sticking down perpendicular. Glue a red pom pom in the middle f the whiskers.
  2. Tape the pink strip on the inside of the paper plate so it sticks up as a handle.
  3. Fold the paper plate in half. Tape down the whisker's "tail" on the inside so the whiskers stick out from the fold as shown.
  4. Staple the paper plate closed, leaving about a 4 inch space open at the top.
  5. Glue on the ears and pom pom tail.
  6. Draw or glue on eyes.
