Spring Easter Bunny Decor
Can you see that bunny shaped pillow sitting on that chair? Can you believe it that this is one of my DIY projects? First and foremost, I love to be thrifty. If I can make something or copy something that I like, I’m going to do it! With Easter just a few weeks away, I’m sure that the Easter Bunny is on everyone’s mind – like mine;) So, when I saw a silhouette shaped pillow of a bunny my mind said – “You can make that.” That’s how this all started.
Made from painters drop cloth, a great farmhouse fabric, and white yarn for the tail. If you don’t know what painters drop cloth is, it’s just such an affordable fabric that looks a bit like linen. A very neutral fabric. All this was made from materials that I had on hand. I did not go to the store for anything! I must say that drop cloth is a pretty great fabric and very inexpensive. I roughly paid about $7.00 for five yards purchased at Home Depot in the painting area. When I say that five yards has gone along way, believe it.

I drew the shape or pattern of the bunny onto large newsprint paper, drawing and erasing until I had the shape that was to my liking. I am not an artist, so I hope that this reminds you of a bunny. Because this shape is where I left it.
After getting the shape I liked, I cut the pattern from the drop cloth, and using my sewing machine that hasn’t seen the light of day in 3 years I stitched around the outside. I left the bottom of the bunny pattern open so I could stuff it from the bottom. When I had the bunny stuffed with batting, I simply repined the opening and straight stitched it closed. I know, pretty amazing for me! I turned no seams, nor did I do anything fancy. That’s how I wanted it. A rustic, rough look.
My charming rustic style bunny is a great addition to any Spring or Easter Decor. Hand designed, sewn, and finished with a white yarn pom-pom for a tail, a little unique and styled with just a minimal finishing touch. My bunny’s edges will naturally fray over time.
I hope you enjoyed my DIY bunny pillow decor! Happy Sunday!
