Tissue Paper Easter Bunny Suncatcher

These bunny suncatchers use just a few common craft supplies and take less than 30 minutes to complete.

It’s a quick and easy craft to include in an art center during Easter and spring themed activities.

Just look at how lovely it looks hung up in a window with the sun streaming through!

Making tissue paper suncatchers is also a fun fine motor activity for preschool and kindergarten children that provides cutting and gluing practice. 

Older children will also enjoy this quick craft that they can complete on their own.

It’s also the perfect craft project if you want the kids to craft with minimal mess.

If you don’t have tissue paper on hand, you can still use the bunny craft template for other projects. 

For example, kids can paint or color the bunnies. Children could also use the template to make a “fuzzy” bunny by decorating it entirely with pom poms or cotton balls.

Bunny Suncatcher Craft Supplies:

Overhead view of bunny template printed out and laying next to glue bottles, pom poms, tissue paper squares in a variety of colors, white chenille stem, googly eyes, and scissors with red handles.

You can also get an assortment of googly eyes, pom poms and chenille stems to use for several projects.

How to Make a Bunny Tissue Paper Suncatcher:

First you will need to download and print out our printable bunny craft template. (It is file 133 in our free printable resource library.) 

I recommend using regular printer paper for this project. The light will shine through plain printer paper easier than cardstock.

Next you will need to cut your tissue paper into small one inch squares in a variety of bright and pastel colors (i.e. pinks, greens, yellows, purples and blues). 

You can also buy pre-cut tissue paper squares for a quick and easy project. 

Younger children could also rip the tissue paper into smaller pieces and older children could cut their own.

Then it is time to start gluing! Use regular liquid glue or glue sticks to cover the entire bunny shape with tissue paper. 

It’s okay if the tissue paper overlaps or goes over the edges.

Set the suncatcher aside to dry.

While the suncatcher is drying, prep your other materials. 

Gather two large wiggly eyes, 1 medium pink pom pom for the nose and white pipe cleaners.

Cut the pipe cleaners into four 4” sections.

Once the glue is dry, cut out the template. 

Use Aleene’s Felt & Foam Tacky Glue (it works much better on projects like this than regular glue) to glue on eyes, pom pom nose and pipe cleaner whiskers.

Now you have a cute faux stained glass bunny suncatcher made with tissue paper to hang in the window and enjoy! 

You can also use a marker or glitter glue to add a mouth to the bunny or leave it as is.
