Bunny Apple Bags

These adorable bunnies make a healthy addition to an Easter basket or a great centerpiece for brunch. To make the bunnies you’ll need paper bags, colorful washi tape, cotton balls and ribbon. Start by cutting the edges of a paper bag so each side is open. Cut a few inches off the top of the bag, then create bunny ears, stopping about a third of the way down the bag. Place the apple inside the bag and tie the top together with ribbon. Use the washi tape to create a small triangle for the nose and tape a cotton ball on the other side for the tail. Watch as guests and kids go crazy for these charming little bunnies.
