Magic for Easter: How to turn a milk carton into a bunny’s nest


You have everything you need? Then get started!

Step 1

Fill the milk carton with lukewarm water and a little washing-up liquid, shake well and rinse. Cut off the upper part with the spout to about a third of the total height with the cutter.

Step 2

Use the measuring tape to measure the remaining lower part of the carton and pencil the values onto the backing paper of the d-c-fix® adhesive film “Uni silk matt sand.” Cut the piece of adhesive foil to size and then smooth it around the milk carton.

Step 3

Now cut open another milk carton, draw two bunny ears with the pencil and cut them out. Place the two ears on the exposed adhesive surface of the d-c-fix® film “Uni silk matt sand,” smooth them down and then cut them out of the film.

Step 4

Now fold the top edge of the milk carton outwards so that the inside is visible on the outside.

Step 5

Draw the mouth, nose and eyes onto the adhesive foil using a fineliner. Draw the shapes for the cheeks and the inside of the bunny’s ears on the back of the pink foil. Cut out all the shapes and use them to create the bunny’s face and ears.

Step 6

Attach the bunny ears to the milk carton basket from behind using double-sided adhesive tape.

Step 7

Fill the finished Easter nest with some filling material, colored Easter eggs and chocolate.

You’re done!
