Silhouette Easter Bunny Art: Tutorial

Arty Crafty Kids | Silhouette Easter Bunny Art for Kids! A fun and engaging Easter themed art and craft idea with printable Easter Bunny Templates #eastercrafts #easter @artycraftykids

Step 1:

Using a paper cutter or scissors, create 10 or more strips of paper – vary the widths of the paper and colours. Here, we’ve opted for pastel shades of yellow, blue, pink, purple and green, which are perfect for Spring and Easter themed arts and crafts.

Download and print the Easter Bunny Templates onto white paper.

Step 2:

Starting from the bottom of the page, begin filling the surface of the white card stock with colourful strips of paper arranged in stripes.

Arty Crafty Kids can create patterns, zig-zag the strips of paper ( as we have in this demonstration) or cut the paper into smaller parts to create a ‘stained glass’ effect.

Step 3:

Continue filling the white space until the surface area is full.

Step 9: Printing with Cotton Balls

Place a single cotton ball into a clothes peg and create one ‘cotton ball brush’ for each colour.

Dip the cotton ball directly into the paint and print the Easter Bunny Silhouette.

TIP: Start with the white paint and layer colours on top, this will enhance the additional colours against the black.
