DIY Easter Bunny Decor

This Easter Bunny Decor is a Dollar Tree craft project.

This project turned out better than I envisioned. The Easter Bunny Decor is made from a foam shape, napkins, and ribbons that I purchased at the Dollar Tree. It was a fun decoupage process. My youngest daughter loves bunnies and claimed this as her own.

Above is the back view of the bunny. Pink flowers on the napkin are so bright and perfect for spring. The green leaves were added over the first layer of napkins. This added activity and visual direction to the final piece. In total, it took two napkins to cover the bunny because I needed to grab a few more green leaves.

With Easter right around the corner, why not make this cute bunny box. What a cute way to give a treat. Both young and old will get a kick out of it. You can make them in different sizes and colors. Personalize them and they make a great place setting name tag.

I used Stardream Metallic Card Stock in Crystal for the box and Astrobright in Pulsar Pink for the ears and nose. CutCardStock’s Stardream line is one of my favorite card stocks with a bit of metallic, it has a great look.

I cut the SVG file out on a Cricut Maker. Placing two different pieces of card stock on the mat, I adjusted the file in Design Space. This made it easier to cut once instead of twice.

As a reminder when cutting, set the red lines to score and load your scoring tool before setting the file to cut. The materials are minimal for this project making it so easy to make. It would be fun to get the kids involved.

I cut the whisker with scissors from a scrap of black and chose to draw in the eyes instead of cutting them out.

The video tutorial below shows how to easily put the pieces together.

This view shows the size of the box that can be made from an 8.5 x 11″ sheet of card stock. Just the perfect size for a treat or a group of jelly beans!

Pom-Pom Bunny

How to craft a yarn pom-pom bunny.

This adorable little bunny is very easy to make. You can make one or many (you know bunnies tend to duplicate) in a variety of sizes. They would make cute holiday decor or a great addition to a special Easter basket. 

Materials:

  • yarn
  • scissors
  • felt – pink and white
  • hot glue gun
  • a bead
  • two pens

Instructions:

I used two pens to make the small pom, two of my fingers for the medium pom and four fingers for the large pom. Wrap yarn around the pens about 20 times and cut the yarn end. Using another piece of yarn, run it between the two pens and around the yarn. Tie a tight knot, removing the pens if you need to get the knot really tight. Cut the looped yarn and trim the pom to a nice circular shape. Do the same for the next two poms.

The parts needed to make the bunny: the three poms, white felt cut for the ears and pink felt cut for the inside of the ears. One bead.

Using the hot glue, glue the pink felt to the white felt. 

Glue the three poms together to form the bunny body. 

Using hot glue, pinch the ears at the bottom with a small bit of glue. Then attach them to the bunny body. Also, glue the bead in place for the nose. 

Make a Terra Cotta Bunny Rabbit

You can easily make this terra cotta bunny rabbit. Why not include the kids?

With Easter right around the corner, I chose to turn a cute little flower pot into a Bunny Rabbit. The steps were easy and very doable for children. But I think parents would need to help with the hot glue. While my design is minimal, you could definitely add to the bunny with whiskers, ribbon, flowers, and more. 

Materials:

  • small terracotta pot
  • cotton pom pom (or cotton ball)
  • pink craft foam
  • white cardstock
  • googly eyes
  • white paint
  • paint brush
  • hot glue gun
  • scissors

Directions:

I chose to repurpose a flower pot from another project my daughter made. To begin, I painted the outside of the pot white. Unfortunately, she had used glitter in her paint so it didn’t cover smoothly. Oh well.¬†I should have sanded it off first.

Using the white cardstock and pink craft foam I cut out ears and a nose for the bunny. I didn’t have white craft foam so I used white cardstock which I really liked in the end because I could curl the ears.¬†

Using hot glue, attach all the parts as you desire. I began with the ears on the back of the pot but I didn’t like the look so I removed them, cut a notch into each ear, and then glued it to the edge of the top of the pot. 

I used white cotton yarn to make a small pom pom for the tail. You could use a bought pom pom or even a cotton ball. 

finished!
