DIY: Easter Bunny Bottle


** View ALL my DIY projects conveniently listed on one page HERE. **

I am so excited to show you my Easter Bunny Bottles. Aren’t they just ADORABLE?!

I know I’ve shown you re-purposed bottles in the past. I also did an Easter bunny project last week. But, I couldn’t resist sharing this with you.

A water bottle + a cupcake liner + bunny ears = Oh-So-Cute Easter Bunny Bottles!

There are so many things you could do with these Easter Bunny Bottles. For example, you can make it into a craft activity for the kids.


Give as gifts or put them in your child’s Easter basket.


Leave the water inside and serve them at a kids Easter or spring party.


Display as part of your Spring décor.

Did you notice there are three bunny bottles in most of the pictures in this post?!? I happen to have 3 kids. Well, my kiddos saw me making these and I decided to give them the bunnies now. Think of it as an early Easter gift. 🙂

Would you like to make some cute Easter Bunny Bottles?! It’s easy. I even include FREE printables for the bunny ears and hands at the end of this post. All you need is a water bottle, cupcake liners, glue, and a Sharpie pen. But here’s all the materials I used:

Water bottles (8oz), cupcake liners, Sharpie pen, ribbon, scissors, glue, tape, googly eyes, small cotton balls, bunny ears and hands printables, and printer paper.


Here’s my Easter Bunny Bottle Tutorial:

First I cut out bunny ears from the printable (get the printable at end of this post).


I drew a bunny face on a water bottle with a black Sharpie pen. I drew the nose first, then mouth and whiskers. I glued the googly eyes on last. I then put jelly beans into the empty and dry water bottle. Next I placed a cupcake liner upside down on top of the bottle cap.


Center and then scrunch the cupcake liner around the bottle cap’s sides (as shown below). YAY…The bunny now has a cute hat!


I then cut a slit on the top of the hat (slightly smaller than an inch). I folded the bunny ears (see pic below) and stuck in through the slit of the hat. Inside of the hat, I placed a piece of tape to secure bunny ears.


I decided to glue on a ribbon bow to fancy it up a bit. I then glued the hat to the bottle cap. I also cut out a bunny hands sign (get printable at end of this post) and glued it to the bottle.


(NOTE: I used a glue gun for everything except the bunny hand sign. For that I used a glue stick.)

Oh and don’t forget the bunny’s tail. I used a small cotton ball.


Let’s see them again in an Easter basket! So SWEET!!

  6. Absolutely adorable! Off to buy some bottled water to make those with my granddaughters next week!

  7. I’m hosting our playgroup’s Easter party and was trying to come up with a cute craft. Perfect! Thank you so much!

  8. cute I think im going try them with coffee creamer bottles I made snowman with them at christmas and they turned out cute and you have a bigger opening for treats.

  9. A friend/neighbor of mine is having a bunny themed party so this looks like a great craft to make, I’m forwarding it to her. I have Rishi’s party and if I wasn’t so stuck on trains, this would be fun to do for his party as well, I might still do it if I have time. Thanks Debs!

  10. Looked every where for cute cupcake liners, no luck. Will have to go to plan B. They are too cute to miss. Thank you for the idea and printables.

  11. Thanks everyone! I hope everyone has fun making these!

    Hi Ameeta – Thanks for forwarding to your friend.

    Marie B – FYI – The cupcake liners are from Michaels. I first spotted them in the Easter section but they are also in the regular cake baking supply aisle.

    • Can anyone tell me a quick easy way to get the glue off the bottle after removing the label?

      • Hi Shirly – I usually soak bottles in warm soap water which removes labels easily and most of the glue. For the tough sticky spots, I use Goo Gone.

  12. LOVE this! So so cute (and clever)

  13. These are aborable!! Thanks for sharing!! I can’t wait to make some.
