Recycled Can Bunny and Chick for Easter

Sharing is caring!

Good Morning Y'all! Let's make a Recycled Can Bunny and Chick for Easter with just a few simple supplies. My recycle bin is usually pretty empty because I am saving all the things that I could possibly upcycle into a craft project. I love to take items out of the trash and create fun, funky, and fabulous pieces of home decor, especially for all the holidays.

Dig into that recycle bin, get the kiddos involved, and create your very own Bunny and Chick, to display on the mantel for Easter. Fill with sweet treats and gift to friends, family, neighbors and teachers.

Here's how to create an Upcycled Chick and Bunny from Cans:

STEP ONE

To begin the Recycled Can Bunny and Chick, gather all supplies.  Wash and dry the metal cans, then apply a basecoat of Titanium White Americana acrylic paint to the outside, bottom, and inside edge of both cans.  Set aside to dry and apply a second coat, if necessary.

Topcoat the small veggie can with Americana Banana Cream acrylic paint. Set aside to dry and apply a second coat, if necessary. Giving the yellow can a base coat of white will allow the yellow to pop.

STEP TWO

Download, print, and cut out RECYCLED CAN BUNNY AND CHICK PATTERNS from the bottom of this post ⇓  Trace chick beak and feet patterns onto orange craft foam, and chick wings onto yellow craft foam with a pencil or marker.  Trace bunny muzzle and ears onto white craft foam, and bunny inside ears onto pink craft foam.  Cut out all patterns with scissors.

STEP THREE

Measure and cut six lengths of black twine into one-inch whisker sections.  Attach whiskers and pom pom nose to bunny muzzle with a glue gun and glue sticks.  Assemble bunny by attaching wiggle eyes, and muzzle to face.  Layer pink and white bunny ears together and then glue to the top inside edge of the can.
