DIY Burlap Bunny–Easter Decor

I don’t really do any decorating for St. Patrick’s Day.  It is not a holiday we really celebrate other than a small visit from the Leprechaun, turning a few items green and wearing green so we don’t get pinched.  So I have already started pulling out my Easter décor.

I have been updating my Easter décor this year and getting rid of a few really old items that I just wasn’t in love with any more.  Here is my first Easter décor item I want to share with you today.  You can make one too!

easter-decor This framed Burlap Easter Bunny is not a new idea and I have seen several versions floating around the internet…here is my version.

I started with an old 12 x 12 picture frame that I had laying around and I spray painted it white.  I can’t remember the last time we had nice enough weather in a February in Utah to be spray painting outside! But I am not complaining!

easter-craftsThen I cut this bunny silhouette out on my Cricut Explore and used the vinyl as a stencil.  If you don’t have a cutting machine, I have made it so that you can download the bunny as a pdf and make your own stencil the old fashioned way with a pair of scissors and some cardstock.

Stencil the bunny onto the burlap with white craft paint and let it dry completely.  Then simply glue a regular cotton ball or a white pom-pom onto the bunny’s tail with the hot glue gun.
