How to Make a DIY Easter Bunny Door Hanger

Supplies Needed

  • 1/2 yard of cotton muslin (canvas weight)
  • Pencil
  • Assorted bowls
  • Gray fabric paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Pink yarn
  • Pom-pom maker (such as Clover Pom Pom Makers, $7.79, Michaels)
  • Scissors
  • Hot-glue gun
  • Wooden dowel (cut to size)

Step-by-Step Directions

Follow our easy how-to instructions to make your own adorable Easter bunny door decoration. You should be able to make and hang your finished Easter decoration in under an hour.


Step 1: Trim Fabric

Trim your fabric to a 20-inch x 17-inch rectangle. Fold in half lengthwise, and make one angled cut to create a slight V when unfolded. Trim any extra strings and uneven spots.


Step 2: Make Bunny Shape

To make the bunny shape, use two bowls, one larger than the other. I used 6-inch and 5-inch-diameter bowls. Trace around the bowls lightly with a pencil. Draw on your bunny ears with the eraser end of your pencil. This way you can practice drawing the shapes until you are happy with them. Lightly draw over eraser marks with pencil and wipe away eraser. Paint in your bunny shape with gray fabric paint. One good coat will do. Let dry.


Step 3: Make Tail

While paint dries, make your pink yarn pom-pom for the tail. Follow the directions on your pom-pom maker. (We used a 3-inch tool.) Now for the favorite part—trimming the tail! Use sharp scissors to trim your pom-pom so the tail is nice and round. Use a hot-glue gun to adhere tail to the bunny door hanger.


Step 4: Assemble

Fold over the top inch of fabric and hot-glue a seam on the back to create a pocket for the dowel rod to slip through. Finally, tie yarn or baker's twine around each end of the dowel rod to hang. Adjust the twine so the banner hangs evenly.


Step 5: Hang

Now it's time to hang your Easter door decoration! Use this simple technique to create other handmade banners. Try mixing up the shapes. We love the idea of a star for the Fourth of July or pumpkin for Halloween. Have leftover yarn? Use it to make a DIY unicorn Easter basket.
