Easy upcycled cereal box Easter crafts

I've done all of my crafty prep for this aft's Easter Crafternoon at the North Vancouver City Library. We're upcycling egg cartons, paper towel rolls and cereal boxes.

Project one is a cutie patootie bunny. First was drawing my bunny pattern.



Next step is tracing the bunny onto the cereal box cardboard, cutting it out then gluing scrap paper to the cardboard.



I used paper for the ears, cheeks and tummy then added googly eyes.



I also created a simple mouth and glued a popsicle stick to the back.



And my bunny was done!



Next was a super easy Easter egg decoration using cereal box cardboard, scrap paper, buttons and ribbon. I glued one side with one design.



Then the other side with a different design. I then stitched ribbon through the cardboard and added buttons. My Easter egg is now good to go and ready to be hung.



Next up was a cereal box stained glass egg decoration. This is my egg pattern...



Next I cut up two eggs - a front and back. I then used an X-Acto knife to cut shapes out of the cardboard. I made sure each side was the same.



Next I glued tissue paper to the inside of one of the eggs. The tissue will be sandwiched in the middle of the two pieces of cardboard.



I glued the front and back together then added some swanky twine as a hanger.



This is the stained glass ornament - ideally this would be great for hanging in your window on a sunny day.



Here it is - an easy peasy DIY for adding colour to your Easter.



I have a few more projects prepped for today's Crafternoon. We're gonna have tons of fun!



Now to start packing up my crafty stuff and picking up some chocolates. Happy Saturday everyone!
