Origami Easter Bunny

The Easter Bunny is a symbol of rebirth and the beginning of new life in religious rituals. For many years, Catholics, Lutherans, and Protestants have used it as an Easter decoration and even the main symbol of the holiday, along with buns and dyed eggs. From the United States, Canada, and Europe, this tradition has migrated to other countries as well. Bunnies are depicted on postcards, can be baked from dough, or made of chocolate and marzipan.

In this instruction, we will try to make an Easter Bunny from paper in the origami technique. And we will definitely succeed!

Step 1

Take a square of white paper. You can also use colored paper. In this case, it should be placed with the colored side down. Fold the square in half vertically and then fold it back.

Step 2

Fold both sides of the square in half vertically so they meet at the center fold line.

Step 3

Now fold the paper in half and make a small pinch in the center, marking the middle of the construction.

Step 4

Fold the top half of the design in half, up to the place marked by the pinch.

Step 5

Lift the folded part and make diagonal folds from the center to the right and left corners.

Step 6

This lifts part of the figure.

Step 7

Now fold the top part of the figurine toward you and down, and smooth the folds to make it flat.

Step 8

Flip the design over backward and make two diagonal folds at the top and bottom, as shown in the photo.

Step 9
Step 10
Step 11

Once again, flip the paper back over and make a vertical mountain fold.

Step 12
Step 13

Turn the figure horizontally and you can see the outline of the rabbit!

Step 14

Now you need to make an inner reverse fold in the tail area so that it sticks up.

Step 15

To do this, bend part of the tail back at about a 45° angle, then bring it back to the opposite position and tuck it inside the figure, turning the fold in the opposite direction. Look carefully at the step-by-step photos.

Step 16
Step 17

One final touch: bend the neck area slightly so that the rabbit can stand on the table surface.

The Easter Bunny image, based on Christian legends, today represents life, fertility, and wealth. Make a bunny in origami technique, and decorate your house or Easter basket with it. Admire it yourself and make your loved ones happy!
