I love to decorate my home for the holidays, and I love to have all different kinds of decorations. One Easter decoration that I enjoy displaying is my washcloth Origami bunny collection. Since our first Disney cruise my family members have been huge fans of the art of towel folding. Getting a new towel animal in our stateroom every night is so much fun, so when we planned my cousin’s baby shower near Easter time my mother and grandmother went to work making washcloth bunnies to use as decorations. Even better they doubled as favors for all of the guests!
So many of these adorable bunnies were made that there were a lot of extras left after the shower. My mom kept quite a few of them to use as Easter decorations, and I got to keep five of them myself. I love putting them up every year. My mom found great washcloth colors to make them in and those bright colors just seem to bring spring into the room. Even if it still looks like winter outside as it does this year!
Supplies Need for Washcloth Origami Bunny
Since this is an Origami project it actually requires only a few supplies. Now I know that in Origami you shouldn’t use anything to help hold the shape together, but to easily keep this bunny together you need a little extra help. Considering I store these every year it is also nice to know that they won’t fall apart and need to be remade. Although making them is easy.
- 2 Rubber bands
- Googly eyes (optional)
- Little pink pompom (optional)
- Medium sized pink pompom (optional)
How to Make a Washcloth Origami Bunny
Making the washcloth Origami bunny is really quite easy and it only takes a few minutes. First lay the washcloth out so that a point is facing you. Then, starting at the side corners, start to roll the sides in.
