Peeking Bunny Treat Topper

This Peeking Bunny Treat Topper idea has been hopping around in my mind for a while. He's just a silly little guy that would be a cute addition to an Easter Basket. I also think it would be a fun surprise if a child opens the fridge for breakfast and finds a carton of chocolate milk and a smile:@)
These bunnies would work for any "milk carton" type packaging, 
I also saw bubble gum, Reese's Pieces and malt balls in the Easter section at Walmart this morning.
I picked up the crackers because, um, it's been 100 years since ~this kid~ had them...

Peeking Bunny Treat Topper
  1. Roll straight pipe cleaner into a tight circle. Bend end over last row so it closes.
  2. Bend two bumps of a chenille pipe cleaner in half to create ears. 
  3. Glue ears to the back of the head. I brought the bend down to about the center of the head.
  4. Whiskers: I used a thick thread, yarn, bakers twine, and jute are other options. Glue whiskers to center of head. 
  5. Nose: I used a pink bead, pom-poms, felt, a button, etc could be used. Glue nose over whiskers.
  6. Glue on eyes.
  7. Paws: Cut a 6" piece of straight pipe cleaner. (Please note, I show 3" in the pic but ended up using a longer piece.) Center pipe cleaner on center of back of head and glue in place. Bend paws down other the top of the carton. Trim the pipe cleaner if needed.
  8. The bottom of the head in back and paws in front balance the bunny on the carton.

  7. SEW creative, Lynn... I ♥♥♥ it! I have the eyes on hand as well as the thread & beads. I just need to pick up some green pipe cleaners.
