People begin to prepare for Easter in advance. Someone makes a menu for the holiday table, and someone decorates the house. Let’s do the holiday decorations. I offer you an idea – DIY felt Easter bunny.
Use a thick felt so that the finished toy will hold its shape. This felt is good if the craft will be hanging on the wall. Soft felt can easily bend and lose its shape.
Make an Easy Felt Bunny
Felt Easter Bunny
Total Time: 45 minutes
Step 1: Create a rabbit body and head
With a spring bow compass or cup, draw two circles to make the body of an Easter bunny. One circle should be larger and the other smaller. The larger circle will be the body of the bunny, and the smaller circle will be the head.
Step 2: Connect two circles
Place the small circle next to the large one so that they intersect.
Step 3: Apply the scissors
Use scissors to cut out these circles.
Step 4: Use an ear template
From thick cardboard, cut an oval that is wider on one side than the other. Cut the narrow end in a straight line. You will have a rabbit ear template.
Step 5: Cut out the ears for the bunny
Use this template to cut two ears out of felt.
Step 6: Connect the rabbit’s ears and head
Glue the ears to the rabbit’s head with clear super glue.
Step 7: Make cuts in the felt
Fold the bottom of the body. Use scissors to make cuts. Insert the pompon through these cuts and tie it with string on the wrong side of the toy. Make cuts with nail scissors for convenience.
Step 8: Make felt carrot
Use the ear template to make a carrot. Cut out an identical piece of orange felt. Only in this case, instead of cutting off the narrow tip of the carrot in a straight line, make it round.
Step 9: Cut out the green leaf for the carrot
Cut an oval from the green felt to make carrot tops. Sharpen the ends and make cuts along the edges.
Step 10: Create a leaf outline
Make the cuts again so that you get nicks on the edges.
Step 11: Connect the pieces of a carrot
Glue the carrot tops to the top.
Step 12: Use a cute accessory
Glue a decorative bow on the neck. The felt Easter bunny is finished.
