My team and I have loved exploring the world of needle felting the last few months. Needle felting can make for some of the cutest little creatures! We began our needle felted bird series this past winter, and it was so much fun making the Christmas cardinal and the adorable holiday turtle doves. In the spirit of Easter, we decided to do another needle felted holiday character: this needle felted bunny!
To make this felted bunny, you will need one foam egg, one foam ball, roving wool, felt, two black beads, and a tiny bit of embroidery floss for the nose stitchings. After printing the PDF template and gathering your materials, start by shaping your foam. Twist the egg shape and the ball together to flatten the tip of the egg. This will allow the bunny’s head to rest naturally onto its body. Glue the foam together using hot glue and use the photo tutorial below to form your roving felt around the foam bases. After you have the body ready, find some white felt and black embroidery floss to stitch the nose. Attach the felt nose and ears with hot glue. Press the black beads into the foam and secure them with glue. And of course, we had to give our felted bunny some cute accessories! Make a cute felted radish or carrot for your bunny to carry with him!
There are so many things you can do with this little bunny. Style him in an Easter basket like we did to incorporate him into your Easter brunch and Easter egg hunt decor. Add these felt stuffed Easter eggs for an adorable holiday arrangement! Use him in an Easter gift basket or place him in your centerpiece. Or how cute would he be resting in a DIY felt veggie garden?
