Happy Easter everyone! In this post we’re going to take a look at a lot of great rabbits, which is expected, but we also have a pretty wide collection of other awesome Easter-themed things folded out of paper.

First up is one of the best rabbits I’ve seen. I especially love how soft the paper here looks. The colours are really great too.

This next image is one of the nicest looking origami flowers I’ve ever seen. Since lilies are usually associated with Easter I had to include this one in this post.

Here we have a really great little lamb. If you use black and white coloured paper you end up with really great colouring in the design.

This is a very impressive paper version of the crucifixion of Jesus. The photo is very well done too. The entire model is folded from a single sheet of 35cm x 35cm paper.

Here’s another take on the origami rabbit from the beginning of this post by a different folder. I really love how the eyes are a different colour with this design.

Won Seon Seo has folded several excellent scenes from the Bible. Here he’s folded Jesus’s entry to Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. He definitely has a very unique and impressive style throughout all these scenes.

This might be my new favourite rabbit design. I love how expressive the face looks and how it looks like it’s up to some kind of mischief.

This is definitely one of the most impressive Easter-themed models I’ve ever seen. Ivan Danny wanted to design this model ever since he first started with origami. The entire model is folded from one 40cm x 40cm square of paper with no cuts. The paper is painted which is why the final model has so much colour in it. The individual fingers and toes look amazing!

Next is Seth Friedman’s dutch rabbit again but folded by a different artist with a bit of a different look and feel.

There really are a lot of different origami rabbits out there. I could have easily made this post nothing but rabbits.

Here’s a whole family of little chickens. I like how the hen is essentially a simple geometric shape.

Next we have an egg folded using a tessellation pattern. It’s technically a “dragon egg” but I’m still going to allow it into this Easter post because it’s really the only origami egg I could find. I guess it’s not easy designing or folding round shaped models like this.

This model is pretty neat because it can be stretched or squished into a variety of different shapes.

Our final model this Easter is this absolutely fantastic origami version of Jesus’s crucifixion. The entire thing, the cross, all the details in the body and even the nails are folded from a single sheet of 50cm x 50cm tracing paper!

Believe it or not the hardest part Neelesh K. had designing this model was the knees.
