This Easter, why not make some honeycomb bunnies to hop across your cupcakes? (Hopefully everyone won’t be too sugared out on jellybeans and chocolate eggs). Start with pre-made honeycomb picks, add a few snips of paper, and voila – – bunnies! You could also make a few to decorate an Easter basket, or even glue them by their ears onto a ribbon for a sweet garland.
Step 1: Out of light pink paper, cut out two 1 x ¼” rectangles, then trim down the corners to create bunny ear shapes.
Step 2: Out of darker pink paper, cut out two matching pink shapes that will fit inside the larger ear shape.
Step 3: Glue the dark pink shapes onto the lighter pink ears, lining them up at the bottom.
Step 4: Apply a small dab of glue to the front bottom of the ears, and insert them into the top of the honeycomb ball. You may need to trim a little bit off the edges of the ears to make sure they will fit into the little slivers of the honeycomb paper.
Step 5: Cut out three tiny strips of white paper, about 1 x 1/16”, and glue them to the center of the bunny’s face, overlapping them to create whiskers.
Step 6: Cut out a ¼” gold paper triangle, and glue it to the center of the whiskers, with the triangle pointing down.
Step 7: If you’d like, gently bend forward one of the bunny’s ears.
