Easter paper decoration for hanging - handicrafts with children Day 1

by Susanne Meixner on April 06, 2020

Hi everyone,

Easter is just around the corner and all schools and kindergartens are currently closed. If you are one of the parents who are looking for employment for their children, then this is the place for you. So that the little ones do not get bored at home and they can enjoy Easter to the fullest, I will publish a short handicraft manual every day for the next two weeks, which children can tinker with their parents 😊.

Today I want to show you how you can make this cute Easter decoration out of paper:

Make your own Easter decoration - handicrafts with children for Easter with paper - Suzu Papers Blog

You can hang them on your door, the window or the Easter bush, for example. We only need a few materials that you will have safely at home. Let's get started right away! In the video below I explain to you how to do it and prepare everything in simple steps:



Materials
All you need to do is:

    Step-by-step instructions
    I will now show you step by step how you can make the Easter decoration. We start with our motif cardboard. We measure from the short side with our ruler 6 cm and draw a pencil line. At this line we cut out the paper with our scissors. Then place the paper strip as a template on your colorful cardboard and draw another pencil line on the edge. We cut off the cardboard again on the line. We do the whole thing again so that we have three paper strips of the same size. We take the first strip and draw an auxiliary line at a distance of one cm with our triangle and pencil.

    Then we fold the box backwards along the line. We then turn the paper over and fold the cardboard in the opposite direction. We now repeat this until we have reached the other end of the paper strip and our paper looks like an accordion. We then do the same with our other two paper strips.

    Next you need your glue. We take one of the folded paper strips and put glue on the top end of the paper and glue one end of the second paper strip on. Please make sure that the up and down movement of the folding is maintained.

    Hold the two ends together until the glue has dried or use two pegs to hold the paper together. We now do the same thing again with our third paper strip. Now we have a very long strip of folded paper.

    Now we glue this together in a circle. Put glue on the end of your strip and glue the other end of the box on it. Take two clothes pegs again and let the whole thing dry well.

    While the glue dries we prepare our Easter bunny. Put your cup on the white cardboard and trace the circle with a pencil. Then cut out the circle with scissors.

    On this circle we paint the face of the Easter bunny with our pens. With a black pencil we paint two eyes and a nose with a mouth. Then we take a pink or orange pencil and paint the cheeks of our Easter bunny. What is our rabbit missing now? Right: two ears! Draw two large ears on your white cardboard with your pencil and then cut them out with your scissors. Then take your orange pencil and color your rabbit ears in the middle. So, the ears are done! Now we can stick it to our rabbit face. Take your glue and put a little blob on the bottom of your first rabbit ear. Glue the ear to the back of your rabbit face and fix it with the clothespin. We now do the same with our second rabbit ear. While the ears dry we continue with the round fan.

    Take your cup and turn it over. Place it on your white cardboard, draw the circle with the pencil and then cut it out. Now put glue on the outer edge of the circle. You can use generous glue here so that our fan holds. Then we take our fan circle, which we glued together earlier, and press the paper down in the middle. This is not that easy, please have your mother or father help you here.

    We now place the flat paper fan in the middle of our white circle with glue. Put something heavy on top until the glue is completely dry. I just use a notepad for that. Please make sure to let the glue dry long enough before removing the item to weigh it down. If the glue is not yet dry, the fan jumps back to its original shape.

    Now we take our motif cardboard and put the cup back on again. Then we trace the edge again with a pencil, cut out the cardboard and get a second circle. If you can already write, then write happy Easter on the bottom or let your parents help you. Then we put glue on the back of the circle and stick it in the middle of the front of our round fan as before. We are now complaining with a block or book until the glue has dried.

    So we're almost done! Now we glue on our Easter bunny, which should now be completely dry, in the middle.

    Now all we have to do is make a hole for the tape in the top of our compartments. Simply cut a very small slit in your compartments with your scissors:

    Now we thread the tape through and tie it with a knot.
