Springtime projects are always fun. Every year in my family we always let the kids pick out their Easter baskets or buckets.
This year I thought it would be fun to create our own with custom designs and of course I will be sharing this design tutorial with you!
This bunny bucket tutorial is super quick and easy – perfect for beginners working with vinyl.
Today I am also giving you free Easter bunny svg files when you join my community!
Below you will find a break down of supplies I used and step by step directions. Be sure to scroll down and watch the full length video tutorial to see exactly how I put it together!

- Scale your free Easter bunny SVG files to the proportional size of your bucket. New to Cricut? Visit this tutorial.
- Cut your bunny SVG out on your cutting machine. Make sure to set the material to vinyl.
- Once cut, weed your vinyl. I like to use my Cricut Bright Pad for this. If you do not have, or want one, you can hold your vinyl up to a window to aid the weeding process.
- Make sure your bucket has been wiped down and is fully dry to ensure good contact with the vinyl.
- Using your transfer tape to pick up the design by burnishing (rub) the design onto the transfer tape.
- Carefully pick up the vinyl with the transfer tape. If any pieces are not sticking, place the tape back down and burnish again.
- Start at the bottom center and working your way out when placing your bunny onto the bucket.
- Burnish the bunny onto the bucket and lift the transfer tape.
- Work out any air bubbles gently with the scraper.
- Add a dot of hot glue to the tail and place the pompom.
- Enjoy your bucket! You could also cut out your child’s name in vinyl and add it to the bucket as well to personalize it!
