Hippity Hoppity…Easter’s on it’s way! Have you pulled out the baskets, plastic eggs and decorations? You might just want to add this Bunny Door Decoration to your crafting list! Mr. Bunny is SUPER cute and easy enough that your kiddos could help you make him.

You all know my love for Pinterest. While browsing around, I saw several variations of the Bunny Door Decoration. I knew I wanted to create something similar and put my own spin on it. I had a vision in my head of what I wanted, and I think Mr. Bunny turned out pretty cute…

So what do you think?? Isn’t he {or she} cute?

Let’s gather the supplies…

We found everything we needed at Walmart. We looked first for a wreath, and couldn’t find the size we wanted, so we headed on over to the Hardware Department and found the Foam Pipe Cover, it was on clearance for $2.50 which made the price perfect, and we could make the size we needed. Even though we didn’t plan it, the foam was perfect for adding the bunny ears.

The yarn, Lion Brand Fun Fur, was the perfect texture for the bunny. We bought 5 skeins, not knowing how much we would need for sure, I opened 3 skeins to have enough thickness and ended up using only about 2/3 of each.

Bunny Door Decoration Supplies:

  • Foam Pipe Cover
  • Duct Tape {or other heavy tape to hold the ends together}
  • Lion Brand Fun Fur, white – 3 skiens
  • Vinyl Coated Wire
  • Ribbon
  • White fabric for wrapping the wreath
  • Pink paper for ears

  1. Remove the yellow tape from the center of the foam pipe cover, to expose the adhesive and seal together firmly. Form a circle and secure with Duct Tape. You will need 2 circles, the body is a full length of pipe cover – it made a 12 inch circle. For the second circle using a sharp knife, cut off about 10 inches of the length, form a circle and secure with Duct Tape – it made a 8 inch circle.
  2. Tear strips of fabric {you could also use white crepe paper} Wrap circle until covered completely.
  3. Using 3 skeins of Fun Fur, wrap the circle. Tie off with a knot.
  4. Draw an ear shape onto the pink paper and form the vinyl coated wire to fit. You could also use regular wire, but we found the vinyl coated wire was easier to bend and hold it’s shape

  1. Wrap the ears with white fabric and then Fun Fur, using the same method as for the circles. Using a hot glue gun {or strong glue} attach the wire to the paper so that the pink shows through the ear.
  2. Using sharp scissors, poke a whole through the fabric into the foam, and carefully push the ear into the foam.
  3. Secure the 2 circles together with a cable tie or heavy wire
  4. Cover the tie with a few strands of Fun Fur

Add the bow and you have Mr. Fuzzy Bunny done!

Mr. Bunny did take a little time {about 2 hours}, but all the steps are simple and the supplies are very easy to find.  I think using the Foam Pipe Cover, was perfect! It went together really easily, and the price couldn’t be beat! I might just have to go back and grab a few more packages for future projects.
