Make this fun and easy DIY burlap bunny craft with just a few supplies.
Easter decor is a favorite at my house. Don’t you love how it can be neutral and charming, or bright and playful? Everyone loves the little touches of spring and freshness that pop up! I wanted something sweet and Easter-ish to hang on my canvas clipboard, (see it on Valentine’s Day, and St. Patrick’s Day).
Burlap Bunny Craft
Pick up a roll of burlap. If you can find one like this with the nicely finished edges, it’s a bonus, but not necessary. I free handed this little bunny shape and cut him out. You can do any shape obviously, and if you have a problem free handing, search for Easter silhouette shapes for something free to print out. Pin that guy down to your burlap and there you go!
Take some blue and white baker’s twine and a blunt needle and thread it. I started at the middle of the bottom of the bunny and started sewing around the edges. This only took a few minutes, and is easy enough the kids could do it! In fact, something like this would make great gifts for the kids to give to teachers or grandparents…think an apple for teachers, and a hand print for grandma?
Keep going till you get to where you started. If you want the design to stand out more and be a little thicker, you can go around again. I didn’t, but I might later just because it is pretty light.
Then cut the string and tie it in a little bow. Voila! You have a super cute burlap bunny decoration!
To finish it off for hanging cut the burlap off, and then fold it over. Sew a straight line with your needle and twine and just leave the ends hanging. You can put it on a dowel and hang it somewhere or just pin it to a canvas like I did. Either way it looks more finished when you fold over the top.
And there you have it! The easiest burlap bunny decoration in less than 30 minutes, all ready for Easter and spring! 🙂
