Easter DIY: Milk carton bunny

Der Upcycling The trend doesn't stop here either! Today we will show you how to make cute bunnies out of two milk or juice cartons that you can fill with lots of stuff. How about a herb pot on your Easter table, for example?

Milk Carton Bunny


For this you need: 

  • two milk cartons per bunny 
  • Acrylic paint if you want to paint your bunny 
  • Paint face pens 
  • scissors 
  • Brushes 
  • Herbs or flowers for filling (we used cress) 

Milk carton cut

1. Cut off the top third of the first box, rinse it thoroughly with washing-up liquid and dry it.

2. Press and knead the milk carton a little to make it more flexible.

3. Now detach the top layer of the cardboard at the cutting point so that only the brown cardboard is visible. That should be easy.

4. Reshape the box and fold the top edge down twice, about an inch or two.

Be careful not to cut off too much from both sides here so that you still have enough space to draw. Now unfold it and draw the ears for your bunny there. We lengthened the bottom part of the ears a bit so we can glue them on well.
