- Small rocks – if you can’t find any outside Amazon has some great options
- Clay flower pots – I used 2″ pots but you could use any size.
- Acrylic paint or paint pens
- Glitterific paint
- White paper
- Pom poms
Step-by-Step Directions for Making This Easy Easter Bunny Craft
1. Find the Perfect Rock
First you’ll need to pick out a small round rock. Lighter colors work better for painting.
2. Paint the Rock
Start by painting your entire rock with acrylic paint or paint pens. If your rock is too dark for the light color try adding a base coat of white first. Let it dry, then add your color on top. I used a light pink but your bunny can be any color.
3. Add Glitter Paint
Cover your painted rock with glitterific paint (this paint also acts as a glue making it easy to add the bunny tail and paws so don’t let it dry).
4. Glue on the Bunny’s Details
Using scissors, cut out little bunny paws from white paper and add them to your rock. Add a pom pom for the bunny tail. If you didn’t use the glitter paint you’ll need to glue them on, but otherwise they should stick.
5. Add Grass
Put some paper grass or pom poms into your flower pot for the grass. You can make it yourself by cutting strips of green paper and folding it.
6. Finishing Touches
Add charms and embellishments to your flower pot grass. You can get these at the dollar store, craft store, or make your own.
7. Add the Bunny
Finally add your bunny painted rock. It’s just rested on top of the grass.
Easy DIY Easter Bunny Craft – Quick Step by Step

Some Helpful Q&A:
What else can I add to the bunny flower pot?
If you don’t have fake grass or poms for the grass in the flower pot you could also use air-dry clay as an alternative. Besides the grass, charms and embellishments, you could also add candy to your flower pot. My son made a small hole in his flower pot grass and added some candy. You could also make some miniature easter eggs or even a little sign that sticks out of the grass that says springtime or carrots.
Can I decorate the outside of my bunny craft flower pot?
Yes! The outside of the flower pot can be easily painted using acrylic paint or puffy paint for colorful designs. For younger kids like preschoolers and toddlers, they may have fun adding stickers to the flower pot. If you want to turn your flower pots into easter baskets, just add a cut piece of cardstock for the basket handle or twist together pipe cleaners as another basket handle option.
Is This a Good Easter Bunny Craft for Kids?
Yes! This bunny craft would be great for kids to do or as a cute DIY Easter gift idea for kids. Toddlers or preschoolers can paint the rock and help add the decorations, while older kids can do this whole craft on their own. Another fun idea is to have kids make this as a gift idea for grandparents.
