Make an origami bunny for your Easter table

Fold a large origami rabbit for Easter
Wouldn't it be fun to have a litter of origami bunnies for your Easter centerpiece? Do big ones, like this guy I made. Or decorate each place setting with a smaller rabbit. Or hide them around the house just for fun.

This bunny model is designed by Stephen O'Hanlon and demonstrated by Mari Michaelis in this step-by-step video. Mine is made from an 18" square of sketchbook paper. It's much thicker than origami paper, and thus harder to fold, but the resulting rabbit is quite a sturdy fellow. He's about 9" tall.

Then after I folded him, I saw these printable rabbit chocolate bar wrappers at Mini-eco. You could have a thoroughly origami Easter!

So cute :) I'm not having a big Easter party, but I think I'll make some anyway - they would add a nice festive touch to my apartment :)

Precisely. You will feel happy when you see them. I put a tiny rabbit on my husband's keyboard, and I think he liked it.

I realized today that I have NEVER in the years that I have followed your blog left a comment and I wanted to apologize. Your blog is on the list of blogs that I check a few times a week for inspiration. Thank you for doing what you do :)

Jessica Jones said...

Thanks, Amy! That's encouraging!

Being careful of course not to put two of these bunnies too close together in your Easter display...they tend to multiple. Forgetting to put them away after Easter also has them inviting over their dust-related cousins.
