From Burlap bunny’s to Easter Bonnet’s, 6 ways to decorate your garden for an Easter Egg hunt starts here…
This burlap bunny can be made in less than 30 minutes. Isn’t he cute sitting in the spring planters? All I did was find a good bunny shape like this wall glitter graphic at the Dollar Store, trace out the shape on a piece of card stock and use that as my template for my all my pattern pieces.
If you want to get creative, you could do one side burlap and the other a pretty floral print.
Use a felt pen to outline the bunny shape, onto 2 burlap pieces and 2 fusible stabilizer interfacing pieces. Then I ironed the fusible fabric to the burlap pieces and stitched them together leaving an opening on the bottom for stuffing. The fusible fabric prevents it from fraying so you can give it a 1/4″ seam allowance from the edge when you stitch it.
I like to use $5 pillows from Walmart or Superstore for stuffing since it’s much cheaper that buying bags of bunting. After it was stuffed, I stitched up the bottom and added my embellishments.
Use colored buttons for eyes and pretty ribbons for a bow or do what I did and keep it natural looking with paper raffia. He looks great in my tiered tomato cage planter!
….and that’s all folks!
