DIY Burlap Bunny

Can you believe it will be Easter soon? I usually don’t decorate for Easter, but this year I keep seeing all these cute little bunnies and I wanted to decorate. My mom gave me some of her Easter decorations this year and I couldn’t wait to put them out. I’ve started decorating for Spring, so the Easter decor just fits right in! Before I show you how I made this cute little burlap bunny, let me show you some of my other Easter Decor.

DIY Burlap Bunny

I purchased this cute bunny from Dollar Tree, but I really didn’t like the way it looked. I mainly wanted it just for the shape. The stuff wrapped around the outside of the bunny is similar to Christmas tinsel.

DIY Burlap Bunny

Step 1:

The bow is just glued on, so I took it off and started unwrapping the tinsel. The bunny shape is made out of hard plastic and has these little pegs that the tinsel is wrapped around.

Step 2

Start wrapping your burlap around the bunny shape. I got this burlap from Walmart a while back, so I already had it on hand. I realized after wrapping the burlap around a few times that it would have been easier to cut those little pegs off first.

Step 3:

Cut the burlap and hot glue it down when you’re done with the bottom part. It makes it a lot easier to start on the head.

Step 4:

I found it easier to wrap up one side of the head first and then start on the ear. Go around the first ear, then around the second. Wrap the other side of the head, cut burlap and hot glue down.

Step 5:

Your bunny is wrapped! Now lets start on the bow.

Step 6 – The Bow:

I used a different piece of burlap that I already had on hand that also came from Walmart. I folded the piece together and then scrunched the sides up toward the middle, then I hot glued them together.

Step 7

After the bow part dried, I took a smaller piece of the same burlap and wrapped it around the middle, gluing it on the back.

Step 8

Glue the bow onto the burlap bunny and you’re done!

The best part about this bunny is that it only cost me $1 to make since I already had the other items on hand (hot glue and burlap). I was very pleased with how it turned out. It looks great alongside my shabby chic lamp and other Spring decor.

  5. Omg, this is so totally brilliant Michelle! It is ADORABLE! I love to decorate for all the holidays, and am so happy the Spring holidays were spread out this year instead of all in a jumble, it gives us time to enjoy each one! I love to decorate with carrots for Easter and Spring {bunnies too}! You’ve got me thinking to start looking at things in a different way, thank you!

    1. Thank you! It’s fun to decorate for the holidays. It mixes things up a bit. I’m happy Easter is later this year because we usually have to celebrate my daughter’s birthday and Easter together. πŸ™‚

  6. This is so totally cute! It would indeed to go well with the lamp πŸ™‚ I have not started doing my easter dΓ©cor yet but every time I am at the store, I feel like getting the supplies to craft something up. I just don’t really know where to start πŸ™‚ This bunny would make a cute door hanging for the front door!

    1. Thank you! You’re right – it would look great on the front door! I don’t have my Easter wreath made yet, so maybe that’s where I will put him. πŸ™‚

  7. This DIY burlap bunny is a great idea and just adorable!
