DIY Craft: 10 Minutes Toilet Paper Roll Bunny

We have many toilet paper rolls that either end up in Bella's toy box or in the trash can. I can actually see these rolls anywhere because my little girl is fond of playing with it. I always wanted to make something from these but I am so busy that I can't do it. As a matter of fact, there are so many ideas in my mind but I just don't have the time to make it.

Until one day, I was able to make one. Before we left for dinner with Daddy, I made Bella a cute bunny from toilet paper roll all for the sake of her storytelling about the Turtle and the Hare. I know we all know that fable wherein the turtle and the hare had a race.

Well, she had a turtle that she made during one of her playdates. To complete her characters, I made her a hare. And she was very happy!

It was just a quick craft. If you look at it, you can easily get how it was made. I actually just cut pieces from cartolinas in different colors. Just let your imagination play and you will be able to create your own bunny from toilet paper roll.

Since I didn't have paint and wouldn't have time to paint, I just wrapped a white paper around the roll and glued it inside. Then I cut two pink ears and added a white part to the ears too using paper. The face of the bunny was the next thing I worked on. Two circles for the eyes, six long rectangles for the whiskers, a heart for the nose and a triangle for the mouth with a rectangle tooth. You are actually just playing with shapes!

The last thing I added was the feet. I purposely made it big. And it looked cute when you let it hop! You can also skip the feet part if you want to. It already looked like a bunny anyway.

After making this toilet paper roll bunny, I would be making other crafts using this material because like what I said, they are everywhere in the house! I hope I could make more!

I have actually made some spiders using toilet paper roll. You can headover to it too. It comes with an easy to follow step by step instruction too!





I wish I have taken a video of Bella while telling the Turtle and Hare story. The next time she is in the mood to tell the story, I'll make sure that I have a cellphone or camera on hand. And I will show it to you! Lol. Hope you loved this craft I shared to you today. Don't forget to share it with friends or Pin for later!

DIY Craft: Paper Crown for Your Little Princess


DIY Paper crown

My princess. Bella will always be my princess even if she grows up. We all treat our kids like royalty because of how much we love them. We give them everything that will make them happy and that would make them better individuals in the future. 

And talking about giving them what makes them happy, this little girl of mine had been asking for a heart hat. Yup, anything that she can put on her head with hearts.

And so, I made her this very easy paper crown with hearts. I was actually thinking of a different kind of hat of I just thought that a paper crown would be better since she is my princess.

how to make a paper crown

Like I said, making this is very easy. All you need are strips of paper. Make three strips wherein the other one is thicker which would go around the head. First you have to make a ring using the thicker strip. Place it around your child's head to make sure it will fit. Then get the two other strips and cross them on top while taping the edges to the ring.

When you are done forming your crown, decorate!

I knew I didn't need to make a step by step instruction for this because merely looking at the crown will give you the idea on how it is made. And here is a closer look at the crown below.

You can decorate it using whatever you want. If you wonder where I got the gold paper, it is actually an excess of a paper which I sprayed with gold metallic paint before. Instead of throwing it, I just keep it because I know I could use it. And it went to the paper crown.

Look at how happy my little princess is with her paper crown! I will still make her another crown soon and of course, I will share it here with you too.

Crowns like this are not just easy to make but is extremely cheap too. You can use whatever paper is available in your home. And just be creative!

So, go ahead and make one! And when you do, don't forget to share it to me through the comment section or in our Facebook Page.
