I love making simple crafts that don’t involve elaborate supplies. It’s nice to be able to use, and sometimes use up, what I have at home.
Spring crafts are always enjoyable to do with my kids. It’s a way for us to spend time together and helps us look forward to the warm months ahead.
These bunny and chick mason jars were a fun creation you can make using old jars. Paint and embellish them to suit your taste, maybe a silly bunny is just what your child wants to create!
Try making a set of Easter string lights using lights leftover from Christmas. This is a straightforward project that looks great hung on a mantle or outside.
This sock bonny is the perfect example of a craft using just what I have on hand.
Get your kids involved, or even your group of kids. This is a fun craft for a classroom or girl scout troop to make together.
The supplies you need to make a sock bunny are pretty straightforward. Start with a sock. I found a nice pair of pink socks that were too small for either of my children.
These socks were not too worn and amazingly had no holes! I think these got pushed to the bottom of the drawer and were never worn. The bottom of the sock will end being the bunny face so choose one that is in good shape.
You will also need something to fill the socks for this craft. Rice is an easy and inexpensive choice. You could also use dried beans or popcorn seeds. The idea is to use what you already have to make a cute Easter craft.
Finally, some ribbon and markers to accessorize these little bunnies. Invest in a pack of colorful Sharpie markers like these to keep in your craft room. These are markers you will use all the time!
Take a look at the video and step by step instructions for making an Easter sock bunny.
Create a whole family of sock bunnies this Spring. These make cute gifts and kids will love to create their own.
If you are making these with kids let each child pick a colored sock and ribbon that they really like. Encourage them the get creative and make this bunny unique.
If you are making this with a group it might be difficult to gather enough old socks that are in good shape. In that case, grab a pack of colorful socks like this one.
If you like this project, be sure to pin and share it.
How to Make a Sock Bunny for Easter
A cute Easter craft using upcyled materials
- Rubber bands
- Sharpie markers
- Choose a clean sock for this project.
- Place the sock inside a cup and stretch the opening around the rim. This makes it easy to add the rice.
- Use a spoon to add rice to the sock. Fill it almost to the top, leaving an inch or so of the cuff remaining.
- Remove the sock from the cup and use a rubber band to secure the top closed.
- Section the rice filled sock into 2 pieces, a head and body. Use a piece of ribbon to tie off the sections, the head should be slightly smaller than the body.
- Create a tail by grabbing a small section of rice and sock at the base of the bunny and tie it off with a rubber band.
- To create ears, cut the top cuff down the middle and cut each on an angle to create 2 pointing and floppy ears.
- Use Sharpies to draw a face on the bunny.
- Tie a bow around the neck to complete the sock bunny.
The customization options for this bunny are endless. Try different colored socks, ribbon and bunny faces.
