DIY Burlap Easter Bunny Pillow Steps:

1. Download and print the template. (Template link is with the sources at the end of the post.)

2. Cut out the template. (I printed mine on card stock so it was easier to trace around.) 3. Cut a piece of Wonder Under about the size of your piece of burlap. Follow the package directions and fuse the Wonder Under to the burlap with a hot iron. Let it cool.

4. Trace two bunnies (mirror images) on the Wonder Under side of the burlap and cut out.

5. Peel the backing off the bunnies.

6. 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.

7. 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.

I love the way the bunnies match the jute trim of the pillow cover. These pillow covers come in a few different colors but they all have the jute trim. This is a simple yet sweet project that takes less than 30 minutes. I’ve listed all the sources right here:

  1. 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.

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

  3. Carole Thomas says:

    Ann, such great ideas! Thanks for sharing your favorite things. Your blog is always so inspiring.

  4. Linda MacDonald says:

    Maybe add a few more of the little flowers in a cluster to make it bigger and a little “poofy” (is that a real word?)! LOL

  5. This is so cute! Love how it turned out!

  6. Julie Blanner says:

    So darling. Your site is absolutely beautiful!

  7. Susan Schroeder says:

    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.

  8. Lynn Baade says:

    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. Hi trying to download the bunny or the pillow. I can not get it. Please send it directly to my e-mail. I am going to make that cue bunny pillow. thank you very much. Linda

  11. Marie Maitland says:

    Ann, Thank you so much for sharing this fun tutorial. I loved making this Easter Bunny Pillow. It literally took 30 minutes and turned out great! BTW, I never knew that Hobby Lobby carried pillow covers and they have a lot to choose from. At $10 each this is a great way to make low-cost seasonal room changes. My sun room is starting to look like Easter now!

  12. Tracy@www.bluridgevintage.com says:

    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.

  13. ADORABLE! Thank you for the great tutorial. I don’t recall your saying where you got the pillow cover? Love the burlap and bunnies are my weekness. ;)

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Hi! The pillow cover is from Hobby Lobby. There is a direct link at the end of the post.
      Have fun!

  14. Annette Adams says:

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

  15. debbiedoos says:

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

  16. What an adorable and simple craft! I had no idea that Hobby Lobby sold pillow covers at a reasonable price. They look like the ones from Pottery Barn. Thanks for sharing!

    1. 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!

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

  18. 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!

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

  20. 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?

  21. 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!

  22. Ann, this pillow cover is so sweet. Hopefully, I can get to Hobby Lobby this week if this snow stops. Can you inspire us with a flower or flowers design for another no sew cover? Even though my mom taught home ec back in the day, I can only sew a button on whatever, and it ends there

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

  24. Yvonne @ StoneGable says:

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

  25. I think it is precious! Where are the pillow covers from?

    1. 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!

  26. 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!

  27. 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.

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

  29. Penny @ The Comforts of Home says:

    How adorable!!

  30. 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!!!!

    Thanks

  31. Gayle Kesinger says:

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

    1. Ann Drake says:

      I’ve asked that same question many times Gayle…I am told “soon.” They explained that it takes much longer to code an Android version than the iPhone one. I will let you know on the blog any updates they give us. Thank you!

  32. 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.

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

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

  35. 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,
    Kim

  36. Jeannie C says:

    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!
