Cute FIMO Easter bunnies
Tutorial by STAEDTLER
Easter is just around the corner and what better way to get into the Easter spirit than by crafting Easter themed projects. We’re starting this week with Easter bunnies made with Fimo Clay. These bunnies can be made in 3 easy steps and are ideal for little hands.
What you need:
- Fimo Soft – White
- Fimo Soft – Pale Pink
- Fimo Soft – Sahara
- Lumocolour Pemanent Pen (optional – any marker is fine)
- Fimo Bead Piercing Needles
- Fimo Blades (adult supervision needed)
- Baking Paper
- Ovenproof Glass
Step 1: Form the Head and Ears
For a bunny, you need one piece of FIMO soft white and half a block of FIMO soft in the colour of your choice. We chose muted nude tones like pale pink and sahara because we want to create a natural, minimalistic look. You can of course also make the bunnies in bright colours or soft pastel colours.
Now knead the white piece until it softens a little and roll it out into a long piece. Cut two approx. 1 cm long pieces off the long strip and shape them into a cone. Press the cone flat and make small, pointed bunny ears out of it.
Now cut off a piece of FIMO soft pale pink to make the bunny’s head, knead it slightly until it’s softer and shape it into a ball with your hands.
Now pierce through the centre of the ball with a beading needle. Then widen the hole a little so that the cord can be pulled through easily later.
Step 2: Form the body & bake
Repeat the same with 2 pieces of FIMO soft pale pink, which become the bunny belly. Now attach the ears to the smaller ball by pressing them against the head from behind.
Use the beading needle to hang both balls over an ovenproof glass. The ball should float freely in the air in order to avoid pressure marks when hardening.
Harden your pendants in the oven for 30 minutes at 110°C / 230° F top/bottom heat and then allow them cool down properly.
Step 3: Finishing Touches
Use the Lumocolor permanent marker to draw the bunny face and draw the cord through the balls. Knot the cord at the top and bottom and your rounded bunny is ready. Happy Easter!
