Bunny Treat Boxes


Easter Treat Boxes, Bunny Boxes


Recently I found  mini storage boxes at The Dollar Tree and it gave me an idea.  They were the perfect size for treat boxes. 


They come in packages of 10, so each box is only .10 each. 


Chenille Bunny Ears, Pipecleaners


At Michaels I found white chenille stems on clearance for only .49, which were just right to use for bunny ears.   While there I also picked up a bag of mini white pom poms.  I had google eyes at home, but if needed they are also available at the dollar store and craft store. You need one chenille stem per bunny.  Cut the stem in half and then fold each half to make the bunny ear.


Make a little twist on the end to secure it and bend slightly, so that it will stand up when you hot glue it to the lid. 



Glue the mini pom on one side of the container to make the  tail. Glue google eyes on the opposite side of the box



 Draw on the nose and smile with a marker.  I used Bic Mark It.     My daughter thought it needed feet, so we also glued on 4 poms on the bottom of the container.


Bunny Butts, Easter Boxes


If adding candy, make sure to wash the containers before making the bunny.  We used jelly beans in our treat boxes. These are perfect for class parties, Easter get togethers, egg hunts and more .  Not only are they easy to make, but inexpensive as well.
