Make the Head and Ears
The first step is to print out the downloadable found above. This will make things easier and quicker. You could base the color that you want - brown, white, or yellow. It's up to you but you can also make use of all three.
The next thing that you should do is to cut out the printable to get the ears and the body of the cup. That rectangular strip will need some work before we can turn it into a cup.
Now, you'll have to work with the rectangular strip. So get your clear glue and strip. And it's time for the next step!
Turn the Strip Into a Ring
Shape the strip into a ring then glue the ends together. Apply a generous amount of glue but you don't need that much. However, don't make the strip too long or to short - remember that you'll be putting the eggs in there.
And wait for the glue to dry, If it needs clamping, clamp it with your fingers. As much as possible, leave it undisturbed.
Next, get the ears. The outer ears are colored brown, yellow, and white - choose one pair. Then get one smaller pair.
Continue the art project by gluing the smaller pair of ears into the bigger ones. Don't just they look? Another thing you do is to add details on the ears.
After the glue has stiffened connect the ears into the inner side of the cup. After this step, the ears are done.
Now you have made the head of the bunny, next is to draw the face of the rabbit. Googly eyes are great but you can do without them. In this example, googly eyes and color pastel were used.
Draw a face
For the final step, draw the face of the bunny. Make the nose and the mouth then add the googly eyes. And don't forget facial details like freckles. Your Bunny Egg Cup is done!
If it’s not Easter, or if you want to make your egg cups a bit different, use a different colored paper besides brown. Try making it with yellow cardboard to make an egg cup shaped like a bee. Our printable is only for making easter bunny cups though.
