Easter Bilby Bell

Download Activity Guide
Ring-a-ding-ding! Hear the bells chime this Easter with your very own Bilby Bell! This cute guy is perfect for hanging at the front door to greet your Easter guests or maybe keep him in your room and hang him in the window.
  • Step 1 Paint your pot all over using the silver acrylic paint. Allow to dry.
  • Step 2 Download the template here and use it to cut out your bilby pieces from self-adhesive foam. Peel the backing from the small pink accent pieces and press firmly in place on the ears, nose and tail as shown. Use glue to attach wiggle eyes onto the face. Allow to dry.
  • Step 3 Use PVA glue and foam pieces and press them firmly in place on the pot. Start with the legs and arms, the tail and finally the head. You will only need to remove half of the backing paper from the head so the part sticking above the pot remains covered.
  • Step 4 Use the bright paints to decorate the natural beads with pretty patterns.
  • Step 5 Cut a length of baker's twine approximately 60cm long. Tie a loop at one end and thread this loop up through the inside of the pot to the outside. The knot will hold the pot in place when you hang the bell from the loop.
  • Step 6 Thread the first bead onto the twine that is hanging out the bottom of the pot. Position it at the base of the pot and tie a knot to keep it in place. You may need to tie 2 or 3 knots depending on the size of the bead. Thread and position the remaining beads onto the twine, tying knots to keep them in position.
  • Step 7 Follow our instructions on How To Make a Tassel using the baker's twine, being sure to attach it to the remaining twine at the end of your last bead. Your Bilby Bell is now ready to ring-a-ding-ding!
