I love making pipe cleaner animals with for my kids. They’re still a little young to do them by themselves, but they like to help attach the eyes and love playing with the little animals I make. It’s been a long time since I shared a pipe cleaner tutorial, like these elephants, frogs, birds, and chameleons. These pipe cleaner bunnies are some of our favorites and they make a perfect craft for spring!
I made two different versions: one that sits upright and one that leans forward.
How to make upright pipe cleaner bunnies (above):
1. Tightly wrap a 12″ pipe cleaner around a cylindrical object like a pen or marker. Fold a second pipe cleaner in half and then bend back each side into a letter M (these will be your bunny ears).
2. Stick the letter M pipe cleaner through your coil.
3. Fold over the bottoms of the letter M into little bunny feet. You make have to adjust them a few times until your bunny stands upright.
4. Fold over the ears a little bit, and attach your bunny nose, tail, and eyes with glue.
