Peanut Bunny Favors DIY

There’s not much cuter than a little creature made out of a peanut.  Nestled in their beds of green grass,  these charming little Easter bunnies will guard the candies hidden inside. And would you believe that fluffy grass is made out of a green paper napkin!!

Materials needed: peanuts, white paint, pink and black markers, white construction paper, scissors, pom poms, glue, green napkin (or tissue paper), paper mache boxes, white or gold thread

Step 1: Paint peanut white. Let dry.
Step 2: Out of white construction paper, cut out ears approx. 1″ x 1/4.”
Step 3: Color in pink insides of ears.
Step 4: Fold edge 1/8″ up. Dab with glue, and affix to peanut bunny. Hold for 6 seconds until glue sets. (If you are making an upright bunny, no need to fold back the paper ear – just glue it straight onto the peanut).
Step 5: Loop 2″ thread around fingers 4 or 5 times.
Step 6: Tie knot in center of loops. Cut edges off for whiskers.
Step 7: Dab on a dot of glue, and affix whiskers to peanut bunny.
Step 8: Dot on two little black eyes with black marker.
Step 9: Glue on pom pom tail.
Step 10:  Cut 1″ strips of napkin and fold lengthwise in half.
Step 11: Cut fringe into the green napkin or tissue paper.
Step 12: Apply glue to surface of box top, and gently attach fringe. Repeat until surface of top is covered.
Step 13: Arrange bunnies, apply glue to underside off peanut and secure. If you want, make little carrots out of play dough and scraps of boxwood ribbon.

    These are SO cute. I love little boxes and containers like this. They make me really happy. Idk why. I love decorating them too (I like making care packages for people). These are such a work of art though, omg.
