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 farmhouse Easter bunny DIY! These farmhouse Easter bunnies are simple to make and I show you how you can incorporate some recycling into this project! This is also one of our no sew projects for those who prefer not to use a machine or who don’t sew!
The supplies you will need to make your no sew 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 farmhouse Easter bunnies, no-sew style!
Step one: Cut out your template
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.
Cut out your bunny template. I recommend using cardstock, so you can use it multiple times. If you can laminate it, that’s even better!
Step two: Pin your bunny template to your fabric
Pin it to a double layer of fabric.
What are some other great fabric choices for farmhouse Easter bunnies?
- Buffalo plaid or gingham
- Drop cloth
- White cotton
Step three: Cut your bunny out of your fabric
Use a rotary cutter to trim the fabric around the template. Use scissors for those hard to reach places.
Step four: Pin your two cut layers together
Once your fabric pieces are cut, pin the two pieces together just to prevent it from coming apart while you glue/sew them together.
Step five: Start attaching the two layers of your no sew bunny together
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.
Step six: Start stuffing your farmhouse Easter bunny
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.
What can I stuff my fabric bunnies with:
- Plastic grocery bags
Watch how I stuff this farmhouse Easter bunny on this video!
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.
After you glue and stuff the ears, start to glue the body of the bunny.
Step seven: Last step is to glue the bottom closed after stuffing your farmhouse Easter bunny completely
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!
Ideas for using your bunnies in your spring decor:
- Add them to an Easter basket for your loved ones.
- Place one or two on your Spring mantel; maybe on either end as anchor pieces.
- You could add them to a Spring wreath; making the bunny out of bright colors instead.
- Make a larger bunny like the one >>HERE<< and make it into a Easter door hanger.
