Bunny Cupcake Toppers DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

A band of bunnies? A round of rabbits? A handful of hares? A crew of cottontails? Whatever you want to call them, these cupcake toppers are very easy and very cute  – and all you need are five simple supplies. How sweet will these look on the dessert table this Easter?!

Materials needed: white pom-poms, colored paper – white, pink, saffron yellow, toothpicks, glue, scissors.

Step 1: Cut out two white ears, about 3/8″ x 1″.
Step 2: Cut out two pink inside-of-ear pieces, about 1/8″ x 5/8″. Glue onto the larger white ear pieces.
Step 3: Glue the pom-pom to the toothpick (gently insert into pom-pom and squeeze to secure).
Step 4: Glue the ears to the top of the pom-pom.
Step 5: Cut out a little bow-tie, about 5/8″ x 1/8″.
Step 6: Apply a dab of glue to the back of the bow-tie, attach to toothpick. Let dry.

Step 7: Insert into cupcakes and enjoy.
