These Cardboard Roll Yarn Wrapped Bunnies are seriously the cutest cardboard roll bunny craft. And it comes with a Free Printable Bunny Template to make your bunnies even easier to create!
We made both painted cardboard roll bunnies as well as left the roll unpainted, too. The end result is super cute either way. They’re wrapped in yarn like a sweater, because sometimes it can get cold out come Easter morning.
Fact is, cardboard roll yarn wrapped crafts are one of my new favorites. We’ve made Cardboard Roll Yarn Wrapped Bears, Cardboard Roll Yarn Wrapped Bugs, as well as Cardboard Roll Yarn Wrapped Tulips. Add these adorable Cardboard Roll Yarn Wrapped Bunnies to the mix now, too!
For our Cardboard Roll Yarn Wrapped Bunnies you will need our Bunny Template, multi-color yarn in bright colors, toilet paper size cardboard rolls, cardstock in brown, pink, and blue, acrylic paint in pink and blue, a ⅝” circle paper punch, a black sharpie, small googly eyes, a glue stick, and scissors.

First, if you want to do the painted version of the bunnies, paint the cardboard rolls.
Let dry completely. The instructions are the same for all the bunnies from here on.
Cut two 1” snips on opposite sides on both ends of the cardboard roll.
Grab a long strand of multi-color yarn and insert into one of the snips. Then begin wrapping.
Wrapping and wrapping and wrapping. Once done wrapping, insert the final end into one of the other snips. Trim any yarn ends if needed.
Now cut all the pieces for the bunnies by first printing the bunny template, then tracing the template pieces on the cardstock of your choice. Cut out.
As well as two inside ear pieces of a different color.
Glue the inside ear to the ears and then glue to the back of the bunny head shape.
Punch out a small circle using the ⅝” hole punch in the same color cardstock as the inside ear. Place in the center of the bunny face. Adhere googly eyes, too.
Then form a mouth with the black sharpie.
Use the black sharpie to also make two toe lines on the arm and feet pieces.
Glue the head to the top of the arms piece.
Bend the arms in and insert the bunny head piece into the top two snips of the cardboard roll.
And insert the feet into the bottom two snips.
