Yarn lacing crafts have been some of our favorites to do since we started crafting. I love the added texture and dimension the yarn brings, lacing is great for growing hand/eye coordination, and it just makes for a super cute craft like these Cardboard Lacing Cotton Tails!
One of our most saved crafts around here are our Cardboard Lacing Hearts. Along the same lines are these Cardboard Lacing Cotton Tails. A few more lacing crafts we love include these Paper Plate Lacing Ladybugs, a Plastic Lid Yarn Weaving Turtle, and another reader favorite is our Apple Paper Plate Lacing Craft.
For our Cardboard Lacing Cotton Tails you will need circles of corrugated cardboard. We simply cut the top flaps from shipping boxes. Along with that you will also need colored yarn, coordinating cardstock, large poms, a single hole punch, scissors, glue, and clear tape.
Cardboard Lacing Cotton Tails
- Colored yarn
- Large poms
- Single hole punch
- School glue
- Clear tape
Start by cutting circles out of pieces of cardboard.
You can make the circles any size you like. For ours, we traced around the rim of a large drinking cup, like the kind you would get from a fast food place. But use a bowl, or simply cut free hand.
Using the single hole punch, make hole punches around the edge of the cardboard.
Snip a long strand of yarn. Tape one end to the back of the cardboard circle.
Wrap a small piece of tape around the other end of yarn for easier lacing without fraying. Then simply go from hole to hole, lacing in and out randomly, until the area is filled to your liking. Tape the end to the back of the cardboard.
Glue a large pom in a coordinating color to the bottom center of the circle.
Cut 2 long ovals from a sheet of coordinating color cardstock. Also cut 2 bunny ear shapes. Glue the ovals to the back, bottom of the cardstock. Glue the ears to the back, top.
Hoppity hop! The cuteness here seriously doesn’t stop! We hope you love our Cardboard Lacing Cotton Tails as much as we do! And be sure to check out more of our Easter crafts at Our Kid Things.
