Recycled Bottle Cap Bunny Craft
This lovable and quick-to-make Easter Bunny craft is the perfect activity for the Easter season and the approach of Spring too. With its cute googly eyes and adorable bunny design, kids from kindergarten to preschool will go crazy over this!
We have plenty of bottle caps at home and I was pondering what to make of it. Then this scheme came to mind. Since Easter is a well-loved season in this household, I thought why not incorporate these excess bottle caps, recycle them, and turn them into something young kids will enjoy!
You might want to assist your littles during the hot glue part as they may burn themselves, or you can oversee them by using a low-temperature glue gun. Letting your kids use items around the house and then create something new with them will make bring in so much exhilaration.

Spend much-needed quality time with your kids with this easy craft! Whether you want to divert their attention into something else while you finish the work at home or you just want to enlighten them about the wonders of reprocessing, this little craft project is perfect for you!
To make this bottle cap bunny you will need:
- Bottle caps (either in white already or painted white)
- White felt
- Pink puff paint
- Hot glue and glue gun
- Floral wire
- Google eyes
- Pink button
You can watch the SUPER quick video below as I put together one of these fun projects. If you want to grab some magnets as well as the supplies above, those can be added to the back then your bunnies can adorn your fridge!
Video too fast for you? Here are the steps to make your own bottle cap bunnies:
- Cut four ear shapes from white felt.
- Cut two pieces of floral wire to go inside ear shapes.
- Hot glue around outside of two ear shapes and sandwich with floral wire in the middle.
- Draw a pink line on the outside of ear shapes with beads in a bottle.
- Trim inside of ear shapes so that they fit together and look right with the bottle cap.
- Add bottle cap to the top of ears over wet paint.
- Hot glue on eyes and button nose.
- Draw in the mouth with a sharpie.
- Allow to dry completely then you can shape ears as needed. They will stay in place because of the wire inside of them.
