We love making Easter crafts, especially colorful and easy ones. This Toilet Paper Roll Easter Bunny Craft has been one of our favorite Easter Craft for years.
A few years ago, my daughters found a stash of toilet paper rolls that I had been keeping for an eventual craft project. They had started painting them in various colors. Once they were done, Emanuelle starting cutting up the tubes… for no reason, just for fun.
When they moved on to something else, I decided to be nice and cleaning up for them. hehe For some, reason I started playing around with the cut pieces, thinking something could be made with them. All of a sudden, I noticed I had made a rabbit just by placing the cut cardboard tubes in a certain order. I showed the girls and they thought it was the coolest thing ever!
Ever since that day, we make toilet paper Easter bunnies. Why haven’t I shared this Easter craft with you before? Simply because I thought it may be too basic for a tutorial. You know what, why not share a basic Easter tutorial? It’s not like it’s a surprise that I like quick and easy crafts. So here we go! This post contains some affiliate links for your convenience.

Toilet Paper Roll Easter Bunny Craft
P.S. Do you like my paint caddy? It’s something I use all the time to carry my acrylic paint!
Step 1: We started off by painting the toilet paper rolls in various colors using our paint brushes and foam pouncers.
Step 2: We cut each toilet paper roll into 5 pieces.
Optional: Once the pieces are cut, the inside of them can be painted. My daughters like to paint the inside once the bunny is assembled.
Step 3: Next, time to take out the hot glue gun and start building an Easter bunny. We placed a dab of hot glue in the middle of one of the pieces and pressed it together to form the bunny’s feet. Then we proceeded to put another dab of hot glue on top of the feet and placed another piece of toilet paper roll to make the belly. We repeated the previous step with another piece of toilet paper roll in order to make the bunny’s head. The really fun part is making the bunny’s ears! We folded the two left over pieces of the toilet paper roll to make them pointy. Then we put hot glue on the bottom of the pieces and placed them on the bunny’s head. The ears can be placed so many different ways too, which can make each bunny unique.
And voilà, we have Easter Bunnies made out of a toilet paper roll!
If ever you are looking for more Easter Crafts, I have a few more to share with you:
What do you think of the bunnies? Aren’t they cute? We have so much fun making them. I think we will add string to our next batch so that we can make a garland out of them. Wouldn’t a Easter bunny garland look cute too?
Do you make crafts for Easter? What kind of crafts do you make?
Have a GREAT day!
