Seriously, besides egg salad, what do you all do with all your hardboiled eggs after Easter? I remember eating them whole for lunch occasionally and my mom makes really good egg salad but I have no idea what else we did with all of ours. Sometimes we’d blow out the shells before we dyed them, but that’s not super easy to do and then you’re still stuck eating scrambled eggs for a week. And anyway, as I’ve mentioned before, my husband haaaaaaates hardboiled eggs. Like, he hates them so much that if you gave him the choice of eating just one hardboiled egg or never ever watching football again for the rest of his life, I think he would really take some time and think about it. (And he really really really loves football) So, as a result we have never really dyed Easter eggs with O before. But then I saw these craft eggs at the store and grabbed two dozen!Easter Bunny Eggs  | littleredwindow.com | These charming little bunnies are so easy to make! I love that they’re already white, I love that they won’t break, I love that there are no leftover eggs to deal with, I love that you (I’m sorry, I mean the Easter Bunny, ahem) can hide them and not worry about a stinky surprise if you forget where you/he put one, and I love that they come in a real egg carton, so cute! (And bonus points for being an awesome alternative for people with egg allergies!)

I’m not totally sure what they’re made of but they leave a bit of chalky residue on your fingers when you touch them so I’m thinking maybe plastic covered in plaster? Or something similar that would absorb egg dye? We haven’t tried the dying them yet so the jury’s still out on that, but they were fun to use for this project! Here’s how I made them:

Easter Bunny Eggs

Craft Eggs (If you can’t find the kind I used, just get something like this and paint it white)

White stiffened felt (you could also use cardstock)

Pink and black acrylic craft paint

Hot glue

Small white pom poms

1. First, using scissors, I cut out ears shaped like this from the stiffened felt, mine are about 1 1/4″ long.Easter Bunny Eggs  | littleredwindow.com | These charming little bunnies are so easy to make!2. The felt I used had one side that was slightly smoother, so I painted pink inner ears on that side using a small paintbrush.Easter Bunny Eggs  | littleredwindow.com | These charming little bunnies are so easy to make!3. Then I cut small ovals for the feet. These are about 3/4″ long and 1/2″ wide.Easter Bunny Eggs  | littleredwindow.com | These charming little bunnies are so easy to make!

5. Then, using hot glue, I glued the feet to the front of the egg. Make sure they touch the table, they help hold him up.Easter Bunny Eggs  | littleredwindow.com | These charming little bunnies are so easy to make!

6. Then while the egg is sitting on the table (you still have to hold it up at this point), glue a small pom pom to the back for the tail. Now you should have two feet and one pom pom touching the table which should keep your bunny egg upright!Easter Bunny Eggs  | littleredwindow.com | These charming little bunnies are so easy to make!

7. Finally I added the ears! I bent the very bottoms of the ears back a little so the ears stood up straighter. And if you want to make one floppy, go ahead!Easter Bunny Eggs  | littleredwindow.com | These charming little bunnies are so easy to make!

And that’s it, your little Easter Bunny Eggs are ready for Easter morning! They look so cute on a mantel or shelf!Easter Bunny Eggs  | littleredwindow.com | These charming little bunnies are so easy to make!

  2. Cassie, the level of cute here is almost more than I can handle. Nathan and I like hard boiled eggs, but you are totally right about the stinky surprise! That has always been the reason that we don’t do egg hunts!
