Polymer Clay Easter Crafts Ideas

Perhaps you are already into polymer clay yourself? but the children will be getting most of your attention? …. so why not let the kids play with modelling clay while you are making your projects with Polymer clay?

Polymer Clay Easter Bunny

For the Polymer clay fanatics (like me), to make this Easter Bunny you will need 5 different polymer clay colors (rose, white, green black, red, yellow and lavender) Off course you can use any colors you want, so let your imagination fly.

You also need a tissue blade or polymer clay slicer, a tooth pick and an acrylic roller or a pasta machine

This is a very easy project, we will start making the ears, then the face, feet and body and we will assemble. Follow step by step below:

Polymer Clay Easter Bunny Ears

After rolling the rose clay with the acrylic roller or pasta machine cut two same size rectangles with your blade.

do the same with the white clay.

Bend the blade carefully and cut the two pieces of  white clay as above

Add the white clay clay on top of the rose clay and cut the rose clay around matching with the shape of the white clay but leave a small edge around, so you still see the rose clay.

See the bunny ears completed on top left of picture below.

Polymer Clay Easter Bunny Eyes

Roll the white clay with the acrylic roller or pasta machine. Using a straw cut two circles.

Make a very thin sausage with the black clay and cut two very small pieces of the black sausage and roll it making two small balls. These will be the pupils of the bunny eyes.

Add the small little black balls on top of the with circles. So, you have the eyes.

Polymer Clay Easter Bunny Body and Head

 easter bunny body

Roll the rose clay and make a shape similar to a cylinder but with a large base. See below

Make a small ball with the rose clay for the head and add to the top of the body.

Polymer Clay Easter Bunny Face and Feet

First add the eyes then make a very small ball with the red clay for the nose and cut two circles of the lavender or dark pink clay for the cheeks (the same as you made the white circle for the eyes-cut with the straw)

We can’t forget the big front teeth!! So, cut a small square of the white clay and cut half of the way.

Add the teeth first, then add the cheeks. Using a toothpick make small holes on the cheeks.

Polymer Clay Easter Egg Jar

Another idea for Easter is to make your own jar of Easter eggs with a bespoke lid decorated with polymer clay.

Roll the clay through the pasta machine or with an acrylic roller. (not too thin) and cut it slightly bigger than the size of the lid – 1 cm (1/4″)

Start to turning the clay over the lid edges

finish off cutting the surplus clay with a tissue blade

With a craft knife start to poke the lid covered with polymer clay to make the “grass”

It will take a while, but the result is great, so take your time and enjoy the process. Leave a space for the bunny.

Polymer Clay Bunny

Cut pieces of white polymer clay: make one ball for the bunny head, one triangle shape for the body and two small sausages for the ears.

Add the pieces together as shown above.

Add the eyes (two small balls of blue, green or any colour if you prefer), make a small triangle in red polymer clay for the nose 

Add a small pink sausage in each ear (optional), make two small sausages for the arms and two small white dots on the top of the blue eyes.

mini egg polymer clay

Make a mini egg with yellow and red polymer clay. Mix them together and roll the clay in a shape as an egg.

Add the egg to the bunny and put the arms around

Add the bunny to the top of the lid and mini eggs to the jar. Bake it as per recommended time and temperature described in the polymer clay pack.

Easter chocolate eggs are not difficult to make, so if you would like to have a try why not? It is really fun to make with kids.

You will need bars of milk or dark chocolate, a plastic mould and a kitchen thermometer. The other utensils I believe you will have in your kitchen.

The thermometer is very important as to guarantee the high gloss and smooth finish when tempering the chocolate. For the full details on how to make your chocolate Easter eggs at home follow the link to BBC Food which includes a video on how to temper your chocolate.

However, if you fancy a homemade chocolate egg with amazing fillings and you live in Netherlands you can order yours from Smaak Van Brazilie .

Fabric Paint Easter Craft Ideas

Fabric paint has been one of my favorite arts & crafts since I was young because of the inspiration from my mum. So why not introduce the fabric paint to the kids this Easter? It’s really fun and you can make amazing things as painting shoes or t-shirts.
