This simple, super cute boxwood Easter bunny with gingham ears is perfect for Easter and is as about as easy a project as you can get! It comes together in minutes! Feel free to substitute whatever colors, fabrics, or ribbons, to match your decor.
This was inspired by something that I actually saw on the Hobby Lobby website but it wasn’t in my local store and it wasn’t available to ship but I thought it was so cute and it would just be fun for Easter.
I actually already everything that I needed for this. Most of the bits and pieces were in the Daiso haul of crafting supplies that I showed you last week. The result is a true Make it For Less.
Things you will need:
- Large sheet of stiff felt
- Gingham scraps (or your chosen pattern)
- Sew No More (or any fabric glue)
- Wooden dowels or straws
- Boxwood garland or ball
- Mark out the shapes of the bunny ears. Use the first one as the template for the second,
- Cut out the fabric to the largest size using the cut ears as templates,
- Trim down the fabric to the size you want for inside the ears,
- Use Sew No More to stick the fabric to the felt,
- Stick wooden dowels or drinking straws to the ears – use the depth of the bucket to measure the size,
- Shape the boxwood garland or pop the boxwood ball in the bucket,
- Create a pretty bow with the ribbon around the bucket,
- Pop the straws or dowels with the ears in at the back of the boxwood,
- Fluff it out – et voila!
I went with a black and white theme, but you can stick with the burlap Farmhouse vibe, or if you have a heart for whimsy or florals, this could easily be adapted for any decor!
