Hippity hop, the Easter Bunny is on his way… and fast! This year Easter is in March and I’ve barely started getting ready for it. Today is as good a day as any for Easter crafting, so let’s get started with these adorable free printable Bunny Easter Baskets. Their sweet little faces make me so excited for Easter.
I love cooking for the family. Cooking can be a stress reliever for me, as long as I have a menu planned (I really hate trying to figure out what to cook, I am trying to be better at planning ahead). But even when I make a big fancy dinner, we eat it on our basic tupperware plates with our water bottles instead of glasses, and usually there are only forks for silverware. We eat good, but keep it simple for the kids!
However, a few times a year I love to go all out and set a proper table! I get out the cloth napkins, add a salad plate and at least 3 pieces of silverware. We get to use a water glass and a wine glass (juice for the kids). Super fancy 🙂 And when I do it for a holiday, I love making cute crafts for each places setting, and even better if they can hold a little appetizer or treat like these adorable bunny Easter baskets.
These bunny baskets actually came about because of an error while trying to figure out these free printable egg shaped boxes. I miscalculated my geometry (which actually happens a lot, don’t tell anyone) and ended up with flat eggs. But my husband insisted I could turn the mistake into something else. He kept telling me that Post-Its were a mistake turned into a billion dollar industry. I am not claiming these are anywhere near as awesome as Post-Its, but they are super adorable and perfect for Easter.
My mistake box sat on my desk, taunting me while I figured out the other boxes. Then it hit me, BUNNIES! If you want adorable bunnies, without the poop and needing to remember to feed them, these little bunny boxes are the perfect solution. Just look at their sweet little faces.
To make them even more adorable, I added little pom pom feet and cotton ball tails. Bunnies need to be fluffy. Now instead of staring at my mistake box on my desk, I have an adorable little bunny smiling at me, and holding a treat (thank heaven for Cadbury Mini Eggs).
