Every month this year, we have a challenge between us bloggers to incorporate a different craft medium or theme into a simple tutorial. This month’s challenge is Q-TIPS and with Easter / Spring just around the corner, we decided to make a stylish Easter Bunny Rabbit Art for kids using Q-Tips
Not only is it super fun to create, but it will also become an Easter Keepsake. Turn it into a card or hang it on the wall, it will look super cute both ways.
Easter Bunny Rabbit Art for kids using Q-Tips
- Q – Tips or cotton swabs
- Small pink pom poms
- Cardstock – Blue
- Green Crepe Paper
- Glue stick & Glue gun
- Acrylic colors – White, Red, Yellow, Orange, Green
- Oil pastels – Blues ( optional)
To make the Easter Bunny Rabbit Art for kids using Q-Tips
Line up all your supplies. Using a Q-tip dipped in white acrylic paint, paint 2 circles on the blue card stock – one small for the rabbit’s head & another slightly bigger for its body. Let dry.
Using scissors, make vertical cuts along the long edge of the green crepe ribbon to form the grass. Make sure you cut only 3/4 of the way.
Using a glue stick, line the green crepe paper grass at the bottom of your blue card stock.
Using a glue stick or a glue gun, stick on tiny pink pom-pom tails for the rabbits. We used pink & yellow, but you could very well use white too.
Cut off the cotton heads of the Q tips carefully. One Q-tip will make a pair of ears for each rabbit. So we cut 3 cotton swabs.
Using glue, place the cut pieces of cotton swabs on the top of the rabbit’s head. Make sure the ears are close to each other & are placed with the cottony part facing outwards as shown.
Using q tips again, paint flowers by placing Yellow Orange or red dots in a circle.
Finally, draw the stems, leaves, clouds etc using oil or chalk pastels to complete your artwork. We painted a sun at the top using a q tip again.
This Easter project was originally designed as a greeting card, however, it can also be used as an Easter decoration as well. It can be framed or you can just put a string through and hang it somewhere on display making it part of your Easter decorations.
