How to Make a Milk Jug Easter Bunny Basket
Encircle the milk jug with a stroke, marking the desired spot for the basket’s entrance. To ensure visibility, I utilized a black marker to draw the line.
Employ the X-acto blade to precisely trace along the darkened outline. Ensure that you slice beyond the inked boundary, removing it alongside the plastic fragment you dispose of. It is imperative to eliminate any remnants of the marker from adorning your milk jug bunny basket.
Glue. the googly eyes on the front of the milk carton. Then, glue the pom pom nose under the eyes. Allow to dry.
Then, use the black permanent marker to create bunny whiskers and a mouth.
Take hold of every piece of construction paper and neatly fold it in half lengthwise. Unleash your artistic prowess by sketching a grandiose ear on the pristine white construction paper, while concurrently adorning the pink construction paper with a daintier counterpart.
Cut the shapes out through both layers of the paper. You will have two pairs of ears for every color.
Glue. the pink portion of the ear in the center of the white portion and allow to dry.
Affix the auditory organs using adhesive on the posterior section of the dairy container.
