I am finishing up this recycled craft series with an adorable bottle cap bunny. Grab those bottle caps and let your kids make some of these cuties! If you have missed any of our recycled craft fun this week, be sure to check out the round ups from day 1, day 2, day 3, and day 4. There are also even more recycled crafts linked up at the bottom of this post so be sure to scroll down and see them.
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 pink line on 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 top of ears over wet paint.
- Hot glue on eyes and button nose.
- Draw in 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.
