Learn how to fold a cute three dimensional bunny for Easter! This pretty origami bunny rabbit stands up and would make a great table decoration and of course a gift.
You can shape the neck and the back end of the bunny in different ways, which will give you new sitting positions.
The best thing about this model is the roundness of the back, which makes it look so animal-like, my rabbits look just like this all the time.
Design: Ken Yonami
You will need:
- 1 Square piece of paper.
I used 21 x 21 cm thicker paper.
When using thicker paper, you might want to use a paper clip or tiny bit of glue to keep the model from flattening.
These cute origami bunnies make great origami Easter decorations. They are sturdy, whilst updating this post, the origami rabbits still look the same, I’ll be making few more of these this year!
Fun tutorial – thank you!
It is very frustrating because I couldn’t get it right, but that says nothing about the pattern. It is amazing! The fact that I can’t get it right just means that I am terrible at origami. I love bunnies and I think that these are very cute. I love your video, and it was very clear, but for some reason I still couldn’t get it right. Also, I love your nails!
your tutorials always seem to be missing at least a couple random steps, or assume knowledge on the part of the reader that is not given, nor should be expected for easy/intermediate pieces. it is surprising that you have not improved on this since your excuses about “old videos” made several years ago. thanks for wasting both my time and paper, weeb
I give a thumbs down 👎
So, I don’t know how I did it, but I unintentionally made a female, complete with dewlop?
Thank you very much! Thank you for my heart! Antonija
Thank you for video of “Rabbit”. I like this. It’s origami art! Beautiful! Antonija (75 year)
Hi i love folding origami and people think im really good at it, but im trying to get better and i really love this website so i hope that you can make some more videos. But sometimes they are really hard and i have a hard time trying to figure it out, but on the plus side i can always turn it into something else. So basically i really like what you do and I really want you to fold some different things.
I didn’t have the right paper so it didn’t work :l im a student so yeah
I am not really an origami person, I just like to keep my hands busy, my repertoire comprises of the basics: paper crane, a boat and a plane, that is all. I normally struggle with drawn folding instructions, I learn far better observing others doing it, so this video was great. I played each section a couple of times paused it then did it myself, and managed to make a cute little bunny on the second try, (the first time the paper split). I will now proceed to compulsively mass produce paper bunnies, with every scrap piece of paper I come across, as I did when I learned to make the paper crane.
This blog is very useful and I come here whenever I have time and paper in my hands. So….yitty witty thanks Chrissy for your hard work and love for origami.
I love the origami boxes. My favorite teacher retired today so I made one for him and my classmates brought gifts to put in it, everyone was legit crying when we had to say bye to him ???? We miss him sooooooo bad (sorry Imma chatty person).
Postscript : he loved the box (duh tho)
Très bonnes explications ,le résultat est super , excellente vidéo , un grand MERCI
This rabbit is so freaking cute! Also, I don’t think your video is too complicated… The camera angle is clear and your creases are visible on the paper, making it easy to follow along. Thank you for sharing!
I must say, as someone who does origami regularly as small extra gifts for birthdays, xmass etc, and having done everything from 3D pandas to cats to deer to paper fidget spinners, boxes, wraps and grids this was by far the hardest to follow through to satisfactory completion. Your video is both vague and un-helpful, in that you use your own innate skill and ability to complete your model ‘by eye’. This is a great skill and you should be proud of your ability….but as a teaching technique, it is worse than useless…not only does it give your watcher no indication at all of what your own thought process’s are, you also engender a feeling of inadequacy and frustration in them, if they cannot follow what you did. Don’t get me wrong, for an excellent origami student it shouldn’t be any great issue…but for the majority of us amateurs, please either go into exhaustive detail…or mark the model as ‘hard’. Expecting us to be able to fill in what you have intuitively done is a bit of a stretch,in my opinion. Im sorry if this seems harsh, I love your model and respect your ability, I just feel that with a little clearer instruction the model would be far easier and less frustrating to reproduce.
Your comment is harsh, but I’m used to that. This video was made a few years ago, and I wasn’t that happy with it, but if people want to make this model and are willing to follow along, pause the video, and try a few times, then you will end up with a rabbit. The difficulty I chose was ‘intermediate’ maybe that is wrong, I find it hard to gauge difficulty, for example this rabbit is much easier than advanced origami models, so. Thanks for your feedback I guess?
Wow! That person was rude and probably just mad they couldn’t do it. I think your video is extremely clear!
i feel as though you are flexing and saying that you are a “great origami student” but the video was actually quite clear and I think you are just insecure that you couldn’t do it.
I do enjoy the shape of this bunny very much and had no problem following along with the head. It’s the body that I lose all understanding at because your hands are kind of in the way when you’re doing it. Don’t know how many times I had to refold it to try and get the right shape and failed miserably each time. I’m using the same size paper as well and for some reason the body is so much bigger. Not sure where I’m going wrong.
Sorry to hear that, hope you figure it out. The body is somewhat of a improvisation, the body has no real set folds, you can create it so that the bunny is sitting up, has a short body, long body etc.
-_- i honestly did not think this was too good but at least I was keeping myself busy in quarantine
Your rabbits are very cute. I fold mostly complex models
but I enjoy the cleverness of simple origami folds.
