DIY Stuffed Denim Easter Bunny Craft (With Photos)
Spring is officially in the air! What better way to celebrate than by creating a fun craft you can display in your home to put residents and visitors in the Easter spirit? I'm more than ready for sunshine, warmer temperatures, and blooming garden flowers. I thought it would be a good idea to get a head start on my own Easter decor, so I've been crafting up a storm. This plush, denim bunny is adorable and perfect for spring. It's a simple craft that you'll be able to display for years to come.
- Old pair of jeans
- Decorative ribbon or string
- Hot glue gun
- Poly beads
- Crafting stick
- Cut the legs off your old pair of jeans. Then cut along the seam of each leg to open the denim.
- Draw your bunny shape on the cardboard. It's helpful to lay your fabric next to the cardboard for sizing. You don't have to be an artist to make your template. Simply make a large circle for the body, a smaller circle on top for the head, and two curved shapes for ears.
- Cut out your bunny shape.
- Lay your cardboard bunny on top of your denim fabric and trace using a black sharpie marker. Repeat on your second piece of fabric. Cut out your bunny shapes.
- Lay your denim bunny pieces on top of each other, lining up your edges.
- Starting with the ear sections, slowly secure your two pieces of fabric together with hot glue (you can sew if you prefer). Once you have the ears secured, check your seams with a crafting stick.
- Fill each ear with the poly beads until you have the desired level of plushness. Carefully hot glue your ear section together to create a seam.
- Continue hot gluing your bunny, working your way down each side of the head. Again, check the seams with your crafting stick. Fill the head of your bunny with poly beads until you have the desired plushness. Secure your head sections together with hot glue to create a seam.
- Hot glue each side of the bunny's body, leaving the bottom open for filling. Check your seams once more with your craft stick. Fill the body of your bunny with poly beads until you have the desired plushness.
- Carefully lay your bunny down and line up the bottom of your two pieces of fabric. Run a line of hot glue along the edge and then fold the bottom back on itself.
- Repeat once more, securing the bottom of your bunny.
- Tie a decorative ribbon or piece of string around your bunny's neck. I used a tie from an old shirt.
