Can we make another bunny? I had so much fun with the last one and thought I’d make another one while I was on a roll! A while back someone had asked me for more chew can crafts. Turns out chew cans make perfect little bunnies, who would have thought? So go ahead and grab some of those yucky chew cans, clean them up and let’s get started!

Materials:

  • Empty and clean chewing tobacco can
  • White tube sock ( I found these at the Dollar Tree!)
  • Left over morning coffee
  • Twine
  • hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • scissors
  • raffia
  • ribbon
  • Pink button ( or something for the nose. I pink pom pom would work!)
  • Small black beads
  • blush and Q-tips (for rose cheeks)

How to:

Step 1: The first step is to coffee dye the socks. I just throw them in a bowl with my left over morning coffee. Let them soak for about 10 minutes and then gently ring them out and hand them to dry.






Step 2: Shove the chew can in the sock and push it all the way to the bottom. Snip the sock right where the heal starts.

Step 3: Gather the sock at the top of the can so it is snug and tie off with a piece of twine. Snip the “ears” straight down until you hit the twine. Then take some hot glue and glue each side of the sock together where you cut. You may have to trim the ears down some if they are too long. I also put a few dabs of glue along the sides to hold them in place.

Step 4: You can now start to make the face. Take two little black beads and glue them on for the eyes. Next, glue a few pieces of raffia on for the whiskers and glue a pink button in the center for the nose. Use a Q-tip and some blush to give this bunny some roses cheeks. For the mouth, glue on some twine.. I think I will skip this step next time because it was a pain and I don’t even think it shows up that good, lol.
