Easy Easter Craft ~ Easter Bunny Suckers

How to make the cutest Easter Bunny Suckers

My friend made these last year for Easter and I thought they were the cutest. My four year old and I made some to hand out to friends this year, and they have been a hit. We made some girl and boy ones, and she has had a ton of fun marrying them all off :).
Easter Bunny Suckers
It takes a little time, and it mostly requires an adult, but really, so much fun for the kids all around.  Let’s get started!

Supplies for Easter Bunny Suckers

Supplies:

  • Dum Dum suckers
  • wood beads for the head (just smaller than the size of the sucker)
  • white pipe cleaners for ears
  • tiny googly eyes
  • wooden hearts for feet
  • thin ribbon for the bows
  • pom poms in three sizes: the tail being the largest, hands just smaller and the smallest for the mouth and nose (one white, one pink)
  • white acrylic paint
  • fine point sharpie
  • hot glue gun

I bought all the supplies for this (except the glue gun) and it cost me $15.00, and it makes a ton.  I have enough supplies left over to take to DC for the kids out there.  For the sizes of everything, keep in mind that it is on a dum dum , and just keep the sizes proportionate.

Assembly:

Start with painting the hearts white, your little one can help with this part…if your cool like that :).  After they are finished drying, use the sharpie to draw on feet, you can see the design I drew in the next photo.

Each bunny will have they following – I gave one example for my little girl, and then let her sort out all the others for each bunny.  She had a lot of fun with that, and it made my part easy!

  • sucker
  • two 2 inch pieces of pipe cleaner
  • one large pom pom for the tail, two just smaller for the hands, two of the smallest for the cheeks, and the small pink one for the nose
  • ribbon tied in a bow
  • two googly eyes
  • one heart for feet
  • one wooden bead

You can look at the photo and pretty much guess how these go together, but I’ll give you the details just in case.

On the underside of the sucker, dab a little hot glue.  Slide the bead over the stick onto the glue.  Next dab two little dots of glue for the eyes, then add the pink nose just below that.  Next Glue on the mouth with two white pom poms under the nose.  For the ears, bend the pipe cleaner in half and add a little glue to the top of the bead where you can stick the ears.  With glue add either a bow tie for a boy, or a hair bow for a girl.  Now glue on the hands, and then the feet.

And for the final touch, glue the tail on!  All done.

Easter Bunny Suckers

So fun!  I think they would be cute with a little tag that said “Have a Hoppy Easter”, no one would see that one coming ;).

Well I am off on a little adventure with my little family.  I have a post coming up sharing some fun ideas I use to make road trips more fun, and also sharing the 3 months I have in store!

Those are so cute! My boys are not usually very crafty but I am going to try to talk them into helping. I think they would make cute place card holders for our big family Easter dinner.

I think these are some of the sweetest little Easter gifts I have ever seen. Not quite sure my boys are up to ‘helping’ yet… the wooden balls would be used as well – balls!
Way too good to eat.

Oh my gosh! I am smiling from ear to ear after finding this, soooo adorable!

I run Fun Family Crafts, a site similar in nature to Craftgawker and Spotlight, but different in that it’s a library of craft tutorials geared only at kids. I would love it if you’d stop by and submit this to be featured! (I link to you, I don’t post your tutorial on the site) Feel free to submit as many kid friendly craft tutorials as you like! http://funfamilycrafts.com/

Sooo cute, such a great idea! Too many ideas, not enough time. Keep them coming!

Yes these are cute and yes once completed are very adorable, but this is not a craft you can do with kids, mainly due to the HOT glue gun that had to be used in order to get all the little items attached to the lollipop. We made over 90 of these in four hours. And that does not include the prep time to paint all the hearts and the bows or the heart that are used as the feet that had to be painted and drawn on. Like I said cute, but had me seeing bunnies in my sleep for a week.
Enjoy them if you attempt them! They are cute.

These are so cute. I used paper backed felt hearts I found on clearance after Valentine’s Day, they were sturdy enough, and ended up much cheaper than wooden ones. These will be fun to hand out for Easter. Thanks for the tutorial. Your photos were very helpful.

Aubrey February 25, 2013 at 3:01 pm

Perfect! Nothing better than clearance! :-) You’re welcome!

Hi! I am attempting to make these – can you give me the size of the wooden beads, googly eyes and pom-poms? That would help so much, Thank you! I can’t wait to make them with my 6 year old.

Aubrey March 24, 2014 at 9:52 pm

Hey Jennifer I don’t have the exact sizes anymore, but I will try to make it to Michaels in the next couple days to get them for you. Sorry!

Jennifer March 28, 2014 at 9:14 am

Ok, thank you!

I like to make little surprises like this to give to people I see often, but aren’t really “friends” – the pharmacist and the pharmacy tech at the drive-thru at the drug store, the lady at the dry cleaners, leave one in the mail box for the carrier; if I have a dr’s appt, I’ll pass them out to the office staff and nurses – just a little “something” to brighten the day of someone not expecting it. I have fun crafting and delivering smiles! This idea is perfect! Thanks for sharing.
