Cross Stitch Bunny Easter Cards To Make Yourself

Cross Stitch Bunny Easter Cards To Make Yourself

First things first, I love to craft!  Easter cards to make with kids is a fun thing to do in the lead up to Easter.

With no projects on the go - or more rightly: one doona cover in progress but too big to face this afternoon - I thought about adapting a cute Valentine's Day card tutorial I saw on @homelycreatures to be Easter themed.  After all, there are chocolate Easter Eggs and Hot Cross Buns in the supermarkets already!!

Now, this Easter craft for kids is probably for 5+ with some help, my 8 year old loves stitching up craft ideas like this and can do it himself for the most part. PRO TIP: He found making the holes with a thumb tack better as it was easier to push through the card than a needle.  For me this Easter card idea is what I'll be stitching up while watching Netflix this weekend. Netflix and craft = a good night in!

 

Materials:

  • Blank card, these are available at craft stores, Kmart, Officeworks­­, etc. or any piece of cardboard you have on hand - just fold it in half and trim to size
  • Needle
  • Embroidery thread or wool
  • Our free Easter craft template printed out

Steps:

  1. Download and print our Free Easter card tutorial and template 
  2. Start with the blank card
  3. Cut out the TEMPLATE and centre on the front of card
  4. Use a needle or thumb tack to poke holes through each of the marked dots
  5. Remove the printed template
  6. Using a needle and embroidery thread/wool:
    Tie a knot in the end of the thread and pull the needle through the holes you have created to make a series of X-shaped stitches - see our stitch guide on the template page for more help.
    You are cross stitching! Hurrah!
  7. Follow the pattern by doing a cross in each area as shown
  8. Finish it off by tying a knot inside the card
  9. Now you can add your own "Happy Easter" or "Congratulations!" to the front and your personal messing inside
  10. Be proud and give it with love!

Amazing!! You’ve finished your own cute handmade Easter card!
