DIY Easter Bunny Pillow Tutorial

Make this DIY Easter Bunny Pillow for easy Easter decor. This is a quick no sew project that uses basic craft store items…and it’s so cute!

I am trying SOOOO hard to find inspiration so I can get in the mood for spring. It hasn’t been easy, but I did come up with this cute DIY burlap Easter bunny pillow cover that’s quick, and actually quite fun. This is a no sew craft too, which means anyone can do it. No excuses!

DIY Easter Bunny Pillow Steps:

  • Download and print the template.
  • Gather all of your supplies, including a piece of burlap or other scrap fabric. The burlap should be around 12 inches x 12 inches.
  • Cut out the template. (I printed mine on card stock so it was easier to trace around.)
  • Cut a piece of Wonder Under about the size of your piece of burlap. Follow the directions on the package, and fuse the Wonder Under to the burlap with a hot iron. Let it cool.
  • Trace two bunnies (mirror images) on the Wonder Under side of the burlap, and cut them out.
  • Peel the backing off the two bunnies.
  • Press your pillow cover so there are no folds or wrinkles. On your ironing board, place the bunnies on the pillow cover. Carefully iron them until they are adhered to the pillow cover.
  • Attach the tail embellishments with a glue gun.

When I was shopping for this project, I had not found the bunny template yet. In my mind, I thought the bunnies would be smaller, so I chose the smaller flowers for the tails. You could absolutely use something bigger, and in fact it would probably look better. Another idea for the tails is little white pompoms.

    I just love this idea and how cute the pillow turned out! I was excited to share your post link with my followers in my From My Neck of the Woods weekend round up this past Sunday. ~ Kristin | White Arrows Home

  2. I feel in love with the bunny pillow. I headed to Hobby Lobby to get a pillow cover and they have discontinued that style in my store and they were not available online either. I did find one of similar design on Amazon and it turned out great. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Love the bunny pillow. It is so clever! Thanks for all the great ideas you send us everyday. ♥

    Ann, I enjoy your thoughts and crafts, most of which are super simple to do. I have already made the door basket with the white arniculas and people rave about it. Thank you. I have all the stuff to make the Bunny pillow and plan on doing that today. Keep your ideas coming and thanks for sharing. I am gluten intolerance so can’t make your recipes. But they look yummy! Thanks girl.

      I also want to try the pillow in different colors (love the orange) and plan on finding different templates to create fun pillows.

    I made 3 of the Easter bunny pillows. They are so cute and so easy to make. I also made the burlap Easter pendant for the mantel. Thanks for sharing your ideas and giving such great instructions!

  9. Very cute idea, Ann, thank you for the tutorial. Hugs, Cindy

  10. Ann Drake says:

    I know Susan! I call them Pottery Barn knock offs. They are a bit smaller but they are very well made and you definitely can’t beat the price!

    This is the cutest!!! The burlap is a great rustic touch and is so popular right now. This is a wonderful and easy to do project…can’t wait to give it a try. This has Spring hurry up written all over it.

  12. Annette Adams says:

    Hello Ann! Love the bunny pillows!
    Can hardly wait to make one.
    Thank you for sharing!

  13. debbiedoos says:

    Simply adorable! I want to make one now:) I better get hopping.

  14. Ann, the bunny pillow is so cute! My married name means “hare” in Polish so I am partial to any bunnies!

  15. Jane @ Cottage at the Crossroads says:

    Ann, I love all your no-sew projects! I really want to make one of these bunny pillows but I’m thinking that I’ll use some printed fabric. Oh, you really have my wheels turning now!

  16. That’s just adorable! I think the grands would really like to see one of those at Easter time.

  17. Ahh…so cute! I need to make one of these. Since I have a burlap-covered pillow, thought I might cut the bunnies out of muslin or some off-white cotton quilt batting that I have. The “flower tails” are sweet.
    Thanks for the idea!

  18. Peggy Zortman says:

    Adorable! I love those little flowers for the bunny tail. I am pretty sure it was bunny tracks in the snow this morning when I went out. Will spring ever come?

  19. I just finished my pillow following your directions! It was easy peasy! I did use tiny white poms for the bunny tails because I didn’t have any flowers that were suitable….Thanks for the easy step by step directions! I also am using some fun spring scrapbook paper with the bunny template to create a banner for my mantle…This brightened my afternoon. We still are having freezing rain here! Bring on spring!

  20. Oh…sweet bunnies, Ann. I have one of these pillow covers. My granddaughter-in-law will have a surprise in the mail this week

  21. Yvonne @ StoneGable says:

    LOVE LOVE LOVE this Ann! What a cute pillow! You are right, the jute and burlap match! ADORABLE!

  22. Ann,
    This pillow is darling! I plan to make one right away…It’s such a cheerful way to add a springtime touch to the home. Thanks for sharing!

  23. Nana Diana says:

    That is really cute, Anne. You come up with the sweetest pillows! I am having a hard time finding any Spring mojo, too. We are still a good two months away from nice weather yet. Thanks for the encouragement that Spring IS coming. xo Diana.

  24. It turned out so cute :) You’re heading towards spring now. If only the snow would go and Mother Nature would get on board.

  25. Penny @ The Comforts of Home says:

    How adorable!!

  26. Beth Qualley says:

    Great idea Ann,

    I put away my “winter things” yesterday (sweater pillows,etc)..only to have more snow today!!! I’m so done and SO ready for spring!!!!


  27. Gayle Kesinger says:

    When will the android version be available? Love the bunny pillow.

  28. Thank you for posting on yet another snowy day…..I’m going to hop right over to the store and get my supplies! I love the embellishment on the bunny tails.

  29. I love the bunny pillow ! Just ordered the items you listed to complete the craft. Thanks for all your great ideas :)

  30. Thank you for sharing this wonderful idea. It’s so cute!

  31. I absolutely love the bunny pillow! This is On my way! my list to do. As I look out my window and the snow is coming down here in PA, I am searching for spring ideas!
    Ann, you always do a great job with detailed instructions for the projects you post.
    Stay warm,

    Cute idea! I did the LOVE pillow for Valentine’s and will have to do the bunnies as well!

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Hi Jeannie! I thought after I was completely finished with this that I could have used the stick on felt for the bunnies. I do love the burlap but the felt is a great option too. Enjoy!

      1. I have never used the stick on felt…..does it come off easily? Could you use it on a pillow cover and then remove it for a new look as the month or season changes?

        1. Ann Drake says:

          Yes I think you could. I’ve only used it once for the LOVE pillow cover I made. The letters did peel off easily. If you try it let me know!
