DIY Easy Mini Felt Bunny Ornaments

Easter is on Sunday! Since quarantine began, I am never really quite sure what day it is anymore. Somehow in all of this uncertainty, I hadn’t gotten around to putting out any type of seasonal decoration. With a daughter called Bunny, we generally take Easter decorating pretty seriously around here. So, in an effort to jump start on all things Bunny, here is a quick hand-sewing project for you to make and enjoy.

DIY Easy Mini Felt Bunny Ornaments Free Pattern and Tutorial


These mini felt bunnies sew together pretty quickly and it is likely that you already have the supplies on hand.

To make an assortment 2 1/2-inch bunny place ornaments:

  • 9 X 12-inch sheets of felt in assorted colors; each sheet will make one bunny plus a little felt left over.
  • Embroidery Floss or Pearle Cotton (if you don’t have either, thread is fine.)
  • A Felt Mini Bunny Ornament template available for free download here, printed and cut out.
  • Craft glue
  • Embroidery needle
  • Scissors
About 2.5” inches high, plus ears


Cut eight circles from the felt and two ears


Cut a piece of thread about 20” long. Thread a needle and knot the end to tie. Insert the needle from the back of one of the circles and make a small stitch to secure.

*This thread should be long enough to complete one bunny. The idea is to keep sewing with the same strand of thread between all layers. If you run out- no worries. Just tie off the end and rethread another strand.

Fold the circle in half. Grab a second circle, keeping it folded in half as well, and align both so that the straight fold of each piece mirrors the fold of the other.

You might find it helpful to think of each piece as a folded tortilla.

Stitch the two pieces together along their crease lines with a small hand stitch.

Try to keep your stitches even and be sure that both circles are aligned. Sew across the entire fold and stop. Keep your working thread- do not cut.

Fold the pieces that have just been sewn in half, like two tortillas.

Grab two more felt circles and layer them with the just sewn pieces in between.

Doesn’t it look like a tortilla sandwich? Make sure that the center fold creases remain aligned with the center seam of the inner layer

With the working thread, sew these two new pieces together along their center fold lines in the same manner as before.

Sew to the end of the folded crease. Remember-don’t cut your thread.

Now we are going to repeat that same step again, by folding all of the circles closed and placing the two more felt circles on the top and bottom. Be sure to align the creases.

Sew these two pieces together through the center as before. At this point the felt is getting a bit bulky to sew through. Just be patient- you are almost finished.

Repeat this process for the final two creased circles, layering them opposite to one another through the center and stitch.

Sewing is complete!


Give each section a little tug to straighten, then divide the circle in half to place the ears.

For the ears, I dabbed a bit of glue on each side and placed the ear. You may need to pinch it for a minute or two to set.

If you plan to have your bunny sit, you may need to flatten the bottom just a bit. To do this, I pinched the circle in half and gave it a bit of a trim. Just watch your stitching. If you happen to cut through- add a bit of glue and pretend it never happened.

All done! Doesn’t it remind you a bit of a weeble?

Wouldn’t these look adorable strung as an Easter bunny garland?

I made one into a chick by cutting two hearts for wings and one tiny heart for a beak.

This Easter may be the perfect opportunity to focus on renewal. Let it serve as a reminder that life goes on and that love is greater than fear. With that sentimant in mind, I wish you all a lovely Easter holiday.
