Bunny Toilet Roll Napkin Rings

Does your family have fancy Easter dinners?  That was never really the tradition in my family.  Once I got married, we started attending hubby's aunt's Easter meals.  Boy, oh boy- they were really, really special.  We dined with fancy cloth napkins, silverware, and china.  And we gorged ourselves on yummy ham, savory side dishes, and a large sampling of desserts.  (Wow.  I can't believe I'm actually drooling just thinking about that meal.)

Try as I may, I don't think I'll ever achieve that kind of amazing Martha Stewart-esque domestic achievement.  Cooking for large groups of people freaks me out.  But if we were to ever host a large Easter meal, it'd probably involve paper plates, plastic cutlery, paper napkins, and maybe these bunny toilet roll napkin rings.   (You know, to fancy the meal up just a tad bit.)

Turn toilet rolls into napkin bunny rings- fun Easter craft!

I saw some adorable burlap bunny napkin rings at Pier 1 the other day.  They were just so cute and I kept thinking, "Boy, I could totally make something similar out of toilet roll rings."  (Ha!)  So here's what I did.

First, I cut out a bunny shape from 2 toilet roll rings.  Then, I painted the outside and the inside ear bits pink.

Then, I grabbed my handy dandy Sharpie marker and doodled on a cute face.

And then I thought I was being clever by hot-gluing on a pom pom for a tail.  Unfortunately, the bunny ring wouldn't sit properly on with the puffy pom pom in back, so I had to rip it off.  Fortunately, it left just a bit of white fuzz--- which worked perfectly as a little tail.
