Paper Mache Easter Bunny – Guest Post

Get a fast start on your next paper mache project or hand-made gift with Jonni’s easy downloadable patterns for masks, animal sculptures and faux trophy mounts. The patterns help you create a beautiful work of art, even if you’ve never sculpted anything before.

Reader Sara Carlson finished this bunny just in time for Easter, using our new paper mache clay recipe. You can see more about how he was made (and see the bunny before he was painted, on her blog, or see him and other work she’s done recently on her etsy shop.

Sara softened the bunny by adding a needle-felted tail, and he’s standing on a bed of reindeer moss.

‘Nuff said. Here’s the Easter bunny, made with paper mache clay.

  1. HI there. I have question about the base of what you’re applying the pulp to. I am trying to make something and would like to send you pic. Can you email me? Thank you so much!

    • Hi Michelle. I don’t know if Sara is still watching her post for comments. If you’d like to watch an extended series of videos showing how I made a rabbit (including the armature), you can find links to all the videos here. Just scroll down that page to see the Ballerina Bunny links.

      You are more than welcome to post a photo of your project on the blog. The best spot for photos is the Daily Sculptors page, because a lot of readers subscribe to the comments on that post, which means that more people will get to see your project. And everyone is really helpful, if you make a specific request for suggestions.
