I’m ready to say good bye to all the winter decor and whip out the spring! Last week I made a cute carrot canvas and this week I am making bunnies. I mean, you can’t have carrots with no bunnies, am I right? This bunny was made using fuzzy scarfs I found at the Dollar Tree the other day. Remember I told you all on live that my mom said she was going to start following me around the Dollar Tree? This is the craft I was referring to. Let me show you how easy this is to make!
Before I get started I want to talk to all my sewers at there. If you are good at sewing then you may prefer to this bunny rather than using hot glue. I can not sew at all so that’s why I chose to use the fabric bind hot glue.
- Fuzzy white or brown scarf from the Dollar Tree (One scarf will make 2 bunnies)
- Left over morning coffee (If you like the grungy coffee dyed look)
- hot glue gun and fabric bond glue sticks
- Rice or dry beans to stuff the bunny with
- Spray starch (you only need this if you are using twine for the whiskers)
- Buttons (for the eyes)
- Wood bead ( for the nose)
- Ribbons to make a bow
- Blush for cheeks
Step 1: If you love the grungy look as much as I do then you will want to coffee dye your scarf before starting. To do this I just threw the scarf in a bowl and poured my left over morning coffee on it. Make sure to push the scarf down in the coffee so the entire scarf is saturated in it. Let sit for 10 minutes and then gently squeeze out the excess coffee and hang the scarf to dry.
Step 2: Fold the scarf in half and cut so you have 2 pieces that are the same size.
Step 3: Check the sides of the scarf for holes. I think there should be a small hole on each side, just seal it up with a little hot glue. Once, the holes are sealed you can begin to fill your bunny with dry beans or rice, I chose rice. You want to fill him about half way up. Just eye ball it and make sure to allow enough room for the bunnies ears to dangle. Once you have it filled tie it off with some twine.
Step 4: Next, cut the ears down to the twine. They should flop over and look just like bunny ears.
Step 5: Now you can start decorating the face. I used buttons for her eyes and a wood bead for her little bunny nose. For the whiskers I took some twine, sprayed it with starch and allowed it to dry. Once dry you can then use your hands to shape them the way you want them. Criss cross the starchy twine and glue it to the bunny and then add the wood bead.
Step 6: The final step is to add the ribbon. I added it up by the ears because I wanted my bunny to be a girl. If you wanted a boy bunny you could add the bow at the bottom like a bow tie. I also think it would be ADORABLE to make a little bunny family like this! What do you think?
