Here is a great Easter craft idea for your party decor: a felt bunny garland! This Easter craft is a wonderful beginners sewing project that can be saved and used for many Easters to come. For this project you will need felt, roving wool, embroidery floss, and poly-fill. The felt is for your bunnies, so we went with a neutral white and a light silver color. Print the PDF template below to use as a guide for cutting your bunny shapes. Cut your felt by hand and use a blanket stitch to sew the felt together. Fill your bunnies with a bit of poly-fill, and the first part of this Easter craft is done! Wait to finish sewing up your bunnies until you are ready string your garland together.
Next you will make your roving felt balls. We decided to use a navy and teal color scheme to match our bowl of elegant teal easter eggs, but using a pastel color palette would also be adorable for this time of year! Make alternating sizes of felted balls to string onto your garland. Use small white and grey felted balls to sew onto your bunnies for cute little cotton tails. Choose a color of twine or embroidery floss for stringing your garland together. Using an embroidery needle, string your twine through the bunnies and felted balls. Members can download and print the instructions below for a more detailed explanation! Once you string your garland together, finish sewing your bunnies and your garland is ready to display.
Use this garland to decorate your backyard for your Easter egg hunt, hang from your mantel, or incorporate into your Easter Brunch table setting. And this garland does not just have to be used as an Easter craft. It would also be adorable to decorate a nursery or child’s bedroom!
