Hard Boiled Bunny Eggs

Hard Boiled Bunny Egg Tutorial

Today is the first full day of spring, and some bunny (me) is ready to celebrate by showing you how to make these adorable Hard Boiled Bunny Eggs. They're super easy to make and you probably have everything you need to make them already in your home.

Hard Boiled Bunny Egg Tutorial

So if you're ready to make these, let's hop to it. Here's the list of supplies you'll need:

Yield: 1 dozen bunnies

1 dozen eggs
1 piece of  white lightweight card stock, I used the back of a greeting card
2 markers, pink and black
white craft glue

1. Hard boil and completely cool the eggs.
2. Draw out 24 bunny ear shapes on the card stock, making sure to add fold tabs to the bottom of each ear.
3. Use the scissors to cut out each ear, including the fold tab. *Note - this is easiest to do if you trim the card stock to a smaller size.
4. On the opposite side of where you drew your ear shapes, use the pink marker to color in the inside of the bunny's ear. Do this for all 24 ears.
5. Fold the tab on the ears backwards from where you colored in with the pink marker.
6. Place a tiny dab of white glue on the bottom of the ear tab.
7. Press each ear firmly in place on the top of the pointy end of each bunny egg. Continue the same process with all the eggs until each one has two ears.
8. Make sure the bunny ears are facing forward and the tabs are in the back of the bunny and do not show.
 9. Using the pink marker, draw a tiny upside down triangle for the nose of the bunny.
10. Use the black marker to draw on the mouth.
11. Use the black marker to draw on the whiskers.
12. Use the black marker to draw in the eyes.
13. If you plan on displaying your bunny eggs in the carton they came in, add about 1 tablespoon of rice into the back compartments so they're lifted up a bit higher than the bunny eggs in the front row. *Note - you can also use this method to display the bunny eggs in a another style of holder to keep them standing straight.
14. Cute and tasty :)

I have tons of fun Easter memories from when my kids were little, but I wish I would have thought of these at that time. I know they would have enjoyed them. Of course that doesn't stop me from making them for myself. I've always been a sucker for a bunny! Happy Spring every bunny!!!
