I love getting crafty for the holidays but for Easter, we’re usually pretty focused on the Easter egg decorating! We made everything from unicorn Easter eggs to marbled eggs with nail polish.

Tin Can Easter Crafts

This year we’re going rogue! Instead of more eggs, I’ve got these super cute tin can Easter crafts. They’re very easy to make so kids of all ages will love them. Plus, the materials are budget friendly and easy to find at dollar stores or craft stores (though I did link to Amazon if you prefer shopping the easy way).

  • Add a coat of yellow acrylic paint to the smaller can. Set aside to dry.
  • Print the bunny and chick template. Trace chick feet and beak patterns onto orange craft foam and the wings onto yellow craft foam. Next, trace the bunny ears and muzzle onto white craft foam. Finally, trace the inside of the bunny years onto pink craft foam. Cut out all of the pieces.

  • Now take your glue gun and glue the wiggly eyes and beak to the can. Attach an orange feather to the back of the can. Glue the wings to the sides of the chick and the feet on the bottom. Finally add an orange feather to the back of the can. (You’ll also add another feather directly in front of it, as seen in the image following this one).

  • Tie your ribbon into a bow, using scissors to cut triangular notches into the ends. Attach the bow under the bunny’s muzzle with your glue gun.
  • For your finishing touch, fill the bunny can with shredded white paper and the chick can with shredded yellow paper. You can also add candy, small Easter toys or anything else you like.
