Easter is a great time to get crafting with your little ones. This is a really simple craft to create these cute Easter Bunny Suncatchers. They make great decorations hanging in a window, from an Easter tree or around the home, and are simple enough that kids of all ages can enjoy making them.
I used my new die cutting machine to cut out the suncatcher templates from cardstock. If you don’t have a die cutter you can buy ready made templates, or cut out your own design carefully from cardstock using a craft knife.
Once you have your template in cardstock, the rest is super simple and uses items you’ll likley already have at home.
So if you would like to see how we made our Easter Bunny Suncatchers, read on for the full tutorial, or pin it for later.

What You We Need
- Diecutter machine and dies- or ready made cardstock templates
- Contact paper/ sticky backed plastic
- Tissue paper in a range of colours
- PVA glue
- Hole punch
How You Make Your Easter Bunny Suncatchers
- First you need to cut your out your suncatcher template from coloured cardstock. I used my diecutting machine and a oval die to represent an egg, and a bunny die to cut out from the middle. If you don’t have a diecutting machine, then you could cut out your template by hand using a craft knife, or you can buy ready made templates.
- Cut a piece of contact paper or sticky back plastic slightly larger than your suncatcher template.
- Children of all ages can enjoy sticky bits of tissue paper to the contact paper. We used pastel Easter colours, and I cut the tissue paper into small squares to make it easier for the children.
- When the contact paper is covered in tissue paper squares, cover with a layer of PVA. It’s easier for chidren to do this with a paint brush. Sometimes the tissue paper can tear a little, but don’t worry it won’t affect the end appearance. Then stick the card tmeplate on top.
- When it’s completely dry, cut around the card template to create your Easter bunny suncatcher. If you want to hang it, then use a hole punch to create a hole at the top, and thread through a loop of ribbon.
That’s it, our simple Easter Bunny Suncatchers. What do you think? You can use the same principles to do lots of different variations, and if you do have a diecutting machine the possibilities are endless!
