Easter Bunny Doily Craft

This is a fun craft you can help the little ones make. Let me apologize straight away. I neglected to take a photo of the doily being dipped  into the liquid starch, and I left the liquid starch out of the supplies photo too. Oops! Please note, this craft requires an overnight drying time prior to completion.

What You Need

1 Crocheted doily, the size is up to you (you can buy one already made at the craft shop or make one yourself)

1 Piece of white felt (standard size is 8 x 10)

1 Piece of pink felt (standard size is 8 x 10)

1 Piece of ribbon (your choice in color) enough to make a nice bow and long enough for you to make a nice hanger.

2 Googley eyes (available at the craft shop)

1 black fine point marker

Liquid starch

Bowl or wash bin (for dunking the doily into the starch)

Ball, the size need to fit nicely into the center of your doily

Hot Glue gun ( if you prefer not to use hot glue with children, craft glue works well too)

Old towel or rag

Before You Start Pour just enough liquid starch into a bowl or wash bin, you need enough to completely cover the doily (3 times the recommended strength). Dunk your doily into the starch and spread it out. Make sure it gets completely coated. Place your ball onto the towel. Remove doily from starch and wipe away the excess dripping. Place the doily over the top of the ball on the towel centering the ball . press down around the ball to form a nice smooth bump in the middle. Let dry for about 24 hours.

Lets make it! The rest is easy from here. Cut two ears (sized to fit the size of your doily) cut pink center pieces of felt for the inside of the ears. I gave my Easter bunny a floppy ear. Cut out a little pink circle for the nose (you could use a little pompom for the nose if you like) cut the cute cheeks and teeth from the white felt. Draw two circles side by side and add teeth.

Dot with freckles ( where the whiskers go optional).

Using your glue gun place the chubby cheeks onto the lower part of the center bump first and then, add ears, eyes and nose. Tie a ribbon for the bow and glue it  below the face ( bump) and add ribbon to the top.

 

 

Tie this cutie to your Easter egg tree or anywhere you’d like to add a little Easter fun.

*Katies Tid Bits, don’t want to wait for the doily to dry, use a straw hat instead

Happy Easter crafting!

    Cute craft! Gotta question – can you use that liquid starch in the laundry? Is it the same thing? And, if so, where do you get it! Thanks for stopping by. Have a blessed weekend!

    1. Katherines Corner

      Yes the same starch you use for laundry I used for the doily. Hugs!

    I haven’t seen an actual Easter egg tree in years. (except on a couple of blogs) I don’t decorate for holidays, but do have some crocheted Christmas ornaments, when I get the urge to put up a tree!
