DIY Easter Bunny Basket Craft with Glue Dots

I received products listed in this post in order to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own.

My mom and step-dad share links to my Facebook page daily. My step-dad loves watching funny videos so he sends those to me and my mom likes sending me recipes and crafts. She knows that I like doing fun crafts with Gracie and my daycare boy. Last week she sent me a photo from the Small Steps Magazine Facebook page that showed how to make an Easter Basket from a couple of paper plates. It’s super cute because it looks like a bunny and I knew Gracie would love making this!

This is how ours turned out:

And this is how it’s ‘supposed’ to look:

I already had all the supplies I needed and I also had just been sent a nice package from the friendly folks at Glue Dots. Up until now, I had never used Glue Dots so I wasn’t sure if this type of craft that would work with Glue Dots… but I knew I wanted to give it a shot.

Easter Bunny Basket Craft Supplies Needed:

  • 3 paper plates
  • cotton balls
  • Glue Dots
  • Ribbon or string
  • Markers or crayons
  • Pink construction paper would be helpful
  • Hole puncher would be helpful

Easter Bunny Basket Craft Instructions:

  • Use a plate to trace on top of another plate to make the ears.
  • Cut and glue pink construction paper “ears” inside the paper plate ears you just made.
  • Glue ears onto a whole plate.
  • Use another plate, cut the top to make an opening.
  • Glue both paper plates together.
  • Punch holes and tie ribbon
  • Draw your eyes and teeth
  • Glue cotton balls above the teeth

As you can probably see, we glued the opened part of the basket to the front when it’s supposed to open in the back. It’s still cute though and totally works. Gracie has been walking around with her baskets and putting things inside already.

Glue Dots 

The Glue Dots worked very good with this craft. I lined the edge of the paper plate with the Glue Dots and it totally worked. It was very easy to use the Glue Dot dispenser. I used the Permanent Glue Dots and I also used the Poster Glue Dots.

The Poster Glue Dots will be perfect for my teen girls. They are constantly hanging posters and photos on their walls. These Glue Dots would work better than tape or putty.

    • I read Bonnie’s blog every day. I strive to use up my scraps, it doesn’t work as well for me as for Bonnie, I think she is more organized. I love her sewing machine collection, makes me feel better, I only have eleven. I look forward to her article in Quiltmaker each time. Thanks for the chance to win her latest book, I don’t have it yet!
