Easter is just around the corner! I have an Easter craft that’s as inexpensive as it is adorable: Dish Towel Bunnies! I’ve been making these bunnies since elementary school. I love to give them as gifts year-round.
What you need:
1 dish towel
2 dish cloths
Jewels or other embellishments (optional)
Cut 4 equal lengths of ribbon (approximately 12 inches).
Lay one dish cloth flat. Start at one corner and roll toward the center (diagonally).
Repeat this step from the other side (the rolls will meet in the center).
This will be your bunny’s ears!
Lay the rolled dish cloth in the center of the folded dish towel, rolls facing up.
Fold the towel over.
Grip the ears with one hand and the towel just underneath the fold with the other hand. Pull tightly so that the top of the towel creases and creates the bunny’s head.
Tie off the neck with one length of ribbon (very tightly).
Grip the ears at the base and tie them off tightly with another length of ribbon.
Time to make the hands! Lay the other dish cloth flat. Roll the edges (this time from the sides instead of diagonally) toward the middle until they meet.
Position the rolled dish cloth just beneath the neck of your bunny (in between the two layers of the towel).
Tie a ribbon around the towel just beneath the hands. This will create the torso of your bunny.
Grip the ends of the rolled dish cloth within the torso of the bunny. Tie the hands together near the ends so the bunny has defined arms.
Cut the excess ribbon or create bows depending on desired effect.
You can also add embellishments like jewels, eyes or flowers. There are so many possibilities for this project!
