There's a chance we're biased here (we don't think so), but aren't these sock bunnies pretty much the cutest little critters you've ever seen?! If you're looking for a spring craft to do with the kids while hanging out at home, this adorable DIY keeps on giving after the creative part with some extra snuggly playtime fun. So grab some old socks you already have (or order a cheap pack online), your favorite Tulip One-Step Tie-Dye Kit, and check out this easy tutorial for making sweet little sock bunnies for spring.
- Tulip One-Step Tie-Dye Kit - Pretty Pastels or kit of choice

- White 100% cotton socks
- Embroidery string - matching colors
- Disposable plastic cups
- Polyfil stuffing
- Disposable plastic surface cover
If your socks are brand new, you'll want to wash them before dyeing (without fabric softener). Either way, make sure your socks are damp before dyeing.
You can even use a rubber band to bind the crumpled sock before placing in the dye, for added crumple dye effects. Let the socks sit in the dye for a while to soak it up.
Once the socks have soaked in the dye for a while, wearing gloves, wring out the socks and place on a plastic-covered surface.
Once the socks have finished processing, rinse thoroughly and wash and dry according to dye instructions. Stuff each sock with Polyfil.
Tie a strand of embroidery string tightly around the halfway point of each sock to create the body and the head. Tie another just above the "head" at the base of the leg portion of the sock to create the section for ears.
