Like my Easy Valentine Wreath for Valentine’s Day, I have found myself making yet another easy holiday craft 😀. This time, for Easter which is right around the corner! These DIY wooden bead bunnies are adorable and the perfect touch for your Easter decor.
They were so much fun to make! I made a few and hung them on my floral centerpiece that I created for my dining table.
What you’ll need:
- Glue gun
- Wood beads (sizes 20mm for body & 16mm for head)
- White pom poms (7mm)
- Felt sheet
- String to hang your bunny
Assemble your bunny
Using a hot glue gun, attach your 16mm wooden bead onto the top of your 20mm bead. These wooden bunnies are pretty small so if you wish to make bigger ones, purchase bigger beads.
Attach your tail
Put a small drop of glue using your glue gun to the bottom back of your bunny and attach your pom pom. These little pom pom tails are adorable.
Cut out and attach the ears
You can draw a template on the felt sheet to cut your ears. I just cut a couple until I found the one I liked and used it as a template to cut the rest. Add a little ”tail” at the bottom of the ear that way you can insert the ears into the hole in the bead. The ears almost look like leaves but this will make it easy to insert into the bead.
To keep your ears together and to have them easily go in the hole, glue the bottom together.
Because I planned on hanging my bunnies I glued my string to the ears too. I laid one end of my string and put a small amount of glue then placed the other ear on top to attach them together.
I then place the other end of the string to the top of the ear and glued that as well.
Once the ears and string were attached together I placed the ears into the bead.
Using the glue gun, put a small amount of glue on the back to secure it.
That’s it! These wooden bead bunnies turn out so cute!
They’re the perfect little touch to your Easter decor. My son wants us to save these bunnies to use as ornaments for the Christmas tree and I think thats a great idea! Who wouldn’t want a cute bushy tail bunny on the Christmas tree?!
Give this easy craft a try and let me know if you have any questions!
