Paper Bag Bunny: A Fun Easter Tradition with Quill And Fox
Bringing Back the Magic of Easter with Paper Bag Bunny Ears Treat Bags
Easter has always held a special place in my heart, coming in as a close second to Christmas. However, it’s not for the religious significance behind the holiday. No, I am more drawn to the enchanting elements of bunnies, eggs, and, of course, the delectable chocolate Easter bunny! 😊 As fascinating as these traditions are, I often pondered over their origins in relation to Easter. Nevertheless, I’ve never complained since they add an extra dose of joy to the festivities.
That being said, I must admit that I never truly believed in the concept of a bunny visiting homes, clandestinely hiding eggs, and leaving behind surprises. It just seemed to stretch the imagination too far, bordering on the terrifying at times! But as a child, what could bring more excitement than waking up on Easter morning and embarking on an egg-hunting adventure? The thrill of the search was unparalleled.
Ah, and then there was the legendary Easter basket—the epitome of enchantment and sweetness. Despite my mother’s lack of crafting skills (and by lack, I mean zero), she managed to weave her magic and conjure up mesmerizing Easter baskets. These delightful baskets were filled to the brim with jelly beans, chocolates, and an enormous chocolate Easter bunny at the centerpiece, all beautifully wrapped in vibrant, colorful cellophane.
Imagine all four baskets lined up on the dining room table—one for each of us four kids. Apart from the baskets, we eagerly anticipated receiving one special gift—a cherished toy, game, jewelry, or even an article of clothing we had been yearning for but couldn’t wait until our next birthday or Christmas to call our own.
Naturally, when my own children came along, I faithfully carried on these beloved traditions. Well, until they grew up and blossomed into the incredible adults they are today. But this year, when I stumbled upon these adorable paper bag bunny ear baskets, I felt an irresistible urge to introduce a new Easter tradition into our lives.
How To Make Your Very Own Paper Bag Bunny for Easter
To kickstart your Easter adventure, gather a regular, plain old paper lunch bag. Next, begin sketching out the outline of bunny ears on the bag. No need to worry about precision; feel free to let your creativity soar!
Once you’re satisfied with the ear design, carefully cut along the lines you’ve created. Take your time, as this part may require a touch of finesse.
Now comes the slightly tricky part. Gently flatten the bag to ensure the ears stand upright.
Fill your bunny bag with Easter grass and treats (if you haven’t already indulged in some online shopping for the perfect goodies). 😋
To secure the bag, tightly cinch it closed while adjusting and fluffing the ears to your liking. Use baker’s twine, string, or any other household item to tie a knot and keep everything in place.
Don’t forget to give those ears a final fluff once the bag is sealed!
Now, it’s time to add the pièce de résistance—an adorable cotton ball bunny tail! Simply use hot glue or room temperature glue to affix the tail securely to the bag.
For that finishing touch, attach a tag to your creation. This will add a personal touch and make it even more special.
And voila! Your very own Easter tradition has come to life, using simple household items you don’t even need to step out of your front door to find!
