Super Easy Easter Bunny Badge Tutorial

With easter holidays almost upon us i have been working on some little Easter gifts for Mister's school classmates and teacher. We all know how much chocolate kids get at Easter, so i wanted to do something 'non-chocolatey'. Easter bunny badges it is!

So here is a super easy tutorial for Easter Bunny badges - great for cute and inexpensive gifts or a great Easter activity to keep the kids occupied over the holidays...

So start with these materials:

  • Patterned cardstock of your choice
  • Plain cardstock
  • Craft glue
  • Brooch backings (cheap from spotlight)
  • A packet of small pom poms (i got mine from the cheap shop)
  • Bunny template (this one i got from an old BHG magazine issue)

Print out the template to the desired size, trace on to the back of the patterned paper and cardstock and cut out so you have two identical bunnies.

Then take the plain bunny (this is for the back of the badge), lay out the brooch backing and mark where you want the holes to be.

punch out the holes where you marked them

this is what you should have now - two bunnies, one patterned and one plain with holes for the brooch backing to go through.

now take to patterned bunny and glue a pom pom to the bottom of the bunny (tail)

with the plain bunny, push through each end of the brooch backing and clip it up.

Now just take the back piece and cover the back side of it with glue

Glue it to the back side of the patterned piece and let it dry.
You then have a easter bunny badge!

You then just need to find a willing model to show it off.....

times by 25 and you have cute easter gifts for the kids or bust out the glitter and felt and let the kids decorate their own!

Thanks for stopping by!

These are cute - kids would love them. The fabric you were asking about on my blog was just from Spotlight. It was in the quilting section a few months back - probably still there:)
