This adorable Easter bunny gift bag is the perfect last minute craft idea for your Easter goodies. It’s fun to make these gift bags, and also fun to receive them!
Easter is such a fun time of the year for kids and grown ups alike. Everyone can find joy in this springtime holiday.
There are Easter egg hunts, family gatherings and lots of opportunities to show your love of someone with a small gift, home made mason jar Easter cookie recipe, or a pretty gift basket.
National days and special days like Easter are so much fun to decorate for. You can add whimsical kid-inspired items like this project or go all in for a Farmhouse Easter decor theme.
With a few simple craft supplies and a brown paper lunch bag, you can make your own adorable gift bag.
Add a gift tag that you can print out yourself and you have the perfect Easter gift for your kids or grand kids.
The beauty of this project is that it only takes a few minutes to make. Plus, it incorporates one of the symbols of Easter, the beloved Easter bunny!

Let’s make an Easter bunny gift bag
This post contains affiliate links for your crafting experience. To make the gift bags, you’ll just need a few supplies:
- Plain brown paper lunch bag
- 1 large 3/4″ pink pom pom (for the nose)
- 2 wiggle eyes
- 1 large 1″ white pom pom (for the tail)
- Cooking twine
- Piece of dark pink felt
- Lindt chocolate carrot
- Printable gift tag (choose your favorite and print it out below).
- Glue stick
- Candy treats
I love projects like this that are simple to do and cute as a button when finished! This adorable little gift bag comes together in just minutes.
Start by measuring across your paper bag and place a mark 1/2 way across with a pencil. I had my measurement 21 cm down from the top and 3 1/8″ in the center of my bag which was 6″ 1/4″ wide.
Next, cut “bunny ears” with scissors by making a V cut.
Fill the bag with Easter goodies and tie the bag shut with the cooking twine. I can see a bunny taking shape!
Now it’s time to decorate the bunny
I used two pieces of pink felt cut into the shapes of the ears, a 3/4″ pink pom pom for the bunny nose and 1/2″ wiggle eyes for the front side of the bag.
Everything got fastened to the gift bag with a glue stick.
A larger 1″ white pom pom gets glued on the bottom of the bag on the back for the bunny tail and we are almost done.
You can choose your gift tag label from this printable. It is a high resolution PDF file that prints out on 8 1/2″ x 11″ sized card stock or photo paper.
I used the photo paper because I liked the glossy finish. Print out the label here.
All that is left to do is to make a hole in the label with a hole punch and thread the label through the cooking twine and tie in a bow.
Add the little Lindt chocolate carrot for an extra sweet treat.Ta Da! This adorable little Easter bunny gift bag took me all of about 15 minutes to make and cost less than $2. It is sure to delight your child or grand child.
And you can use the other labels for more gift bags or use them on other gifts. Both little ones and adults will find them delightful.
