Chenille Ear Bunny Egg Tutorial

This is the tail tale of how to create fuzzy bunny ears from chenille stems for your plastic Easter eggs. You'll have fun coming up with all kinds of uses for these cuties.

They make sweet place cards. You can even put a little after-dinner mint or treasure inside.

Chenille ear bunny eggs are super simple and quick to make! 

I used plastic eggs that have holes in the top and bottom, but you can upgrade your old eggs by drilling holes yourself. No need to buy new plastic eggs! It's easier to drill from the inside like this. I used a 9/64 bit.
For the ears, you just need one chenille stem per egg. Follow the easy directions in the photo above, bringing the stems up through the inside of the egg. 

If you're using the Ribbon Version {see here}, loop it and poke the ends through from the top side of the egg, using a dab of hot glue to hold  in place.

Create a tail by hot gluing a fuzzy pom pom or cotton ball to your egg and... Voila!

Take two colors of green paper. Cut into 1.5 x 6.5 inch strips using 'grass edged' scissors {cheap at the craft store} on one end. Glue into a tube shape. Now your bunnies can nestle in the grass on your table. I used my crimper to get the texture. You can find out about the wonders of the crimper tool *here.*

An alternative would be to use a chenille stem to create bunny feet. Just poke it through the holes and twist it up as shown in the photo.

Momma keeps watch.

These would be so fun for the kids' Easter Egg Hunt, too!

Upgrade those old plastic eggs. Make them into fuzzy-sweet Chenille Ear Bunny Eggs!

Then put on your bunny ears
and get ready for an egg hunt!
