I found this link for a "make your own cookie cutter" kit, which looks pretty cool and is only $20 - which isnt too insane...

But if you read the list of what the kit includes (72" of easily formed solid copper strip 16" of permanent easy to use dry film adhesive Working base & forming tools for convenient accurate forming) it all sounds like stuff you can buy at your local craft and/or hardware store)

Although with the tools and everything, you may be better off buying the kit! I might buy one for myself!!

If you have a Marshalls in your area - you might want to check out their home section.  They tend to carry lots of those oversized cookie cutters in all shapes.  You can probably find a bunny one closer to the Easter season.  I think the cutters run around $5.00. 

If not, print out a shape of a bunny and enlarge to the size you like.  Then trace pattern onto dough using a knife.  (I would only use a very firm cookie dough to do this).

Depending on how intricate a shape you want, you can use a tuna can (well washed) or similar with both ends cut off, and bend into shape with pliers.  I made a heart shape and a dog bone shape this way, and they worked out pretty well.
