If you've been visiting my blog for awhile, ya'll would know I love making things out of toilet paper rolls. I'm not creative in the process as I get all my ideas from Pinterest. I don't know why this "almost 60" woman enjoys crafting with toilet paper rolls, I just find it super fun and the creations so CUTE!
Instead of buying more stuffed bunnies to fill my grandchildren's Easter baskets, I made bunnies! They already have so many stuffed animals as it is, so I made my "save the planet" contribution by using items I already owned rather than buying new stuffed animals. 😆
I got my ideas from "One Little Project". She's got nice instructions and a video if you need it. I didn't look nor follow either, I can reconstruct my own just by looking at the picture.
I only made a few changes: I put a "top" on my toilet paper roll rather than leaving it open, and I also put the cotton ball tail on top rather than between the ears. It just didn't look right to me the other way.
For the face and top I used Spellbinder's circle dies so I could cut a perfect circle. I also used a small die for the nose. Debbie suggests drawing around a cup for a circle if you don't have a die.
I positioned the ears two different ways, as I wasn't sure which way I liked best. Google Eyes were used for the eyes and I hand drew the mouth and paws. Raffia was used for whiskers, I used a little bit more raffia on one bunny than I did on the other. I think I like the smaller amount of raffia for whiskers better.
And in case you've missed it, here are some of my other toilet paper roll creations: Valentine Love Bugs,
David and Goliath Action Figures, Nativity Scene, Pilgrim & Indigenous People Thanksgiving Figures.
Have A Great Day! Amy

The bunnies are so adorable. Using Raffia for whiskers really worked and I like the little changes you made. You must have had a lot of fun making them.ReplyDelete
Thank you. Yes, I enjoyed making them very much.Delete
These turned out so cute and what a great idea to include them in the Easter baskets for the grandkids. I think they will love them! They could even hide a surprise like some crayons or stickers inside the roll! How fun!ReplyDelete
Thanks Ellie! And that's a great idea! I'm gonna do that. I left the bottom open, so it should be easy.Delete
