Easter is the first season of the year where you get to break into those bright vibrant colors! Every year I add new easy Easter crafts to the blog. Today’s project is an Easter bunny craft perfect for easy easter crafts for kids to make or to gift! I’m including free printable Easter bunny templates and SVG cut files to use with your Cricut or cutting machine.

If you are a creative person like me, you may ask what crafts can I make for Easter? For more Easter crafts to make you will love my 3D Easter Egg Candy Boxes or my easy DIY Easter Bucket Project! Both crafts come with free Easter bunny templates and Easter egg templates too.

Five white paper 2D bunnies lay on a light-blue background. Each bunny has a plastic dome of candy and a fluffy white cotton tail. You can make these Easter Bunny candy holders too!

How to Make an Easy Easter Bunny Craft with Candy

The first step will be to get your bunnies cut out on your Cricut machine using the free Easter bunny SVG cut files.

For those using a Cricut or other cutting machine, scale your bunny to 6.5 inches high by 3.8 inches wide or your preferred size. Don’t go too small, though, or you won’t be able to add very many M&Ms.

If you are hand-cutting, go ahead and use the pre-sized PDF files. This craft is an easy enough Easter craft for kids to make with a little help from adults.

Abbi's hand holds one candy filled Easter Bunny craft. Two more, filled with pastel candy, lay on a light green backdrop surrounded by yellow, orange and white spring flowers. Free templates included!

Candy-Filled Easter Bunny Craft Video Tutorial

The full video tutorial above will show you how to assemble this Candy-Filled Easter Bunny Craft. Keep reading for a picture tutorial overview.

Love candy crafts? You will adore my kitty and puppy dog candy crafts here.

A nine-picture grid tutorial shows Abbi creating the candy-filled Easter Bunny in step-by-step close-up detail on a bright pink self-healing craft mat.
  1. Cut out your free Easter bunny templates. These templates include a front and back to your bunny plus two circles which are to be cut out in cellophane.
  2. Bring the two cellophane circles together and add scotch tape around the edges. It’s a good idea to be generous and overlap the tape. Be sure to leave a little space open to add your candy.
  3. Once you have added in the candy, close the cellophane complete with tape. Trim around the tape carefully to eliminate jagged edges.
  4. Place your bag of candy on top of the Easter bunny template silhouette piece, and add a few dots of hot glue to the base to hold the candy bag in place.
  5. Add the second Easter bunny template piece with the circle cut out on the top over the candy bag, and secure it with hot glue.
  6. Use a pompom to complete your bunny with a little fluffy tail. You can also cut out tiny paper bows to dress up your bunny even more!

  1. Hi,
    These are so cute and original! Thank you for the freebie and all the others in the library!

    I can’t figure out where to download the candy rabbit .svg file.

  3. LOVE this so much! Just made one 10″ w x 19″ tall. One trick, I did not have any cellophane, but plastic page protectors work very well, even using the Cricut. Do wish there were pink cutouts for the ears and maybe a face as well. But overall, it’s so adorable. Thank you!
