Just for Fun!

Updated: Apr 13, 2022

How about a cute little Easter project perfect for the kids in your life?! This week, I thought I would share what I made for my nieces :) What’s better than a belly full of Easter candy? How about a stuffed animal with a belly full of Easter candy!

I bought a couple of small stuffed animals: a bunny and a chick. I made sure they had seams that attached the head, the arms, and the legs. I also bought two large fillable plastic eggs that were about the size of their bodies.

I took the stuffed animals apart at the seams until I had just the heads, arms, and legs.

I went through and stitched up the edges of each piece, keeping their stuffing contained. I also ran a stay stitch around the open edge of the head, but I didn’t close that part up.

I filled the egg with candy and snapped the front and back together.

It’s time to glue this little critter back together. I used a hot glue gun to glue the feet to the front side of the egg. Then, I glued the wings (or arms) to the side of the egg, attaching them predominantly to the back half of the egg… you could glue them over the side seams, but then the egg couldn't be opened easily.

To attach the head, I ran hot glue around half of the head opening and pressed it into place over the top front of the egg. Then, I pulled back the back half of the head and ran hot glue around the second half and pressed it back into place.

I glued their little bows back into place on the front of the eggs, and voila!!

Cute little candy filled Easter critters :)

My nieces loved them!!

Happy Sunday everyone,
