People start preparing for Easter in advance. Someone creates a menu for the holiday table, and someone is decorating the house. Let’s do the holiday decorations. I offer you an idea – DIY Felt Easter Bunny.
Tools and materials:
- Blue, green and orange felt;
- Transparent super glue;
- Springbow compass or a cup;
- A simple pencil;
- Decorative bow;
- Thick cardboard for the template;
- Fur pompom.
Take a thick felt for DIY, so that the finished toy holds its shape well. This felt is well suited if the craft will hang on the wall. Soft felt can flex easily and lose shape.
Felt Easter Bunny in 12 Steps
Total Time: 45 minutes
Make a Rabbit’s Body and Head
Draw two circles with a springbow compass or cup to make the body of an Easter bunny. One circle should be larger, and the second should be smaller. The big circle will be the body of the rabbit, and the smaller circle will be his head.
Connect two Circles
Place the Small circle next to the large one so that they intersect with each other.
Apply the Scissors
Cut out these circles with scissors.
Use a Template for the Ear
Cut an oval of thick cardboard that is wider on one side than on the other. Cut the narrow end in a straight line. You will get a rabbit ear template.
Cut Out the Ears for Bunny
Cut two ears out of felt using this template.
Connect the Rabbit’s Ears and Head
Glue the ears to the rabbit’s head with transparent super glue.
Make Incisions in the Felt
Fold the bottom part of the body. Make incisions using scissors. Attach the pompom through these incisions and tie it with strings on the wrong side of the toy. Make incisions with nail scissors, so it is more convenient.
Make Felt Carrot
Use the ear template to make a carrot. Cut out one exactly the same piece of orange felt. Only in this case, do not cut off the narrow tip of the carrot in a straight line, but round it.
Cut Out the Green Leaf for Carrot
Cut an oval of green felt to make carrot tops. Sharpen the ends and make the incisions on the edges.
Create a Leaf Outline
Make the incisions again so that you get nicks on the edges.
Join the Parts of a Carrot
Glue the carrot tops to its top.
Use a Cute Accessory
Glue a decorative bow to the neck. The felt Easter bunny is done.
This funny and cute animal will appeal to all family members.
