Easter is right around the corner, y’all! If you are into the farmhouse trend that is wildly popular right now, this is the perfect Easter DIY! These Easter bunnies are simple to make and I show you how you can incorporate some recycling into this project!
The supplies you will need to make your farmhouse Easter bunnies :
- Fabric of your choice. I used farmhouse inspired colors and patterns; burlap, white, and buffalo plaid.
- Bunny printable template
- Scissors, pins, and rotary cutter
- Stuffing or used plastic grocery bags
- Glue gun and hot glue
- Ribbon of choice. I used a black buffalo plaid, a burlap, and a pink buffalo plaid for mine.
Let's make some bunnies!
Start off by printing and cutting out this bunny template. I found this template on Pinterest, but could never find the original author, otherwise, I would have linked to their page.
After you cut out your template, pin it to your fabric pieces. Use a rotary cutter to trim the fabric around the template. Once your fabric pieces are cut, pin the two pieces together just to prevent it from coming apart while you attach them to one another.
The way that I attached them together is with hot glue. You can sew the two pieces together if you wish. Gluing was easier and I believe is just as secure. Start off by gluing the ear pieces together. Once they are attached, you will then stuff them. You can use pillow stuffing. Sometimes, I like to use cut up recycled plastic grocery bags. First, I smooth the bag out flat. Then, I fold it up long ways and cut strips out of it. For the ears, I did have to use a skewer to help push the stuffing into them.
I continued to glue and stuff until it was complete.
Next, I added a bow to the bunny’s neck. You can see the different fabric/ribbon combinations that I used in the main picture. I just tied on the buffalo plaid ribbons. I made a bow using the awareness ribbon method, tying it with twine. Then, I tied the twine around the neck.
That was it! The farmhouse Easter bunnies are done!
