Embroidery Hoop Bunny Easter Wreath Supplies
Bunny Templates (click link for free download)
- 6-inch wooden embroidery hoop
- Sewing shears
- Pinking shears (optional)
- White adhesive foam sheet (can usually be found in the kids’ crafting section)
- White felt
- Pink felt
- 4-inch white pom pom (I made my own pom pom with white yarn and my Rya Tie tool)
- Wired ribbon
- Hot glue
To begin, download and use scissors to cut out the bunny templates. The templates provided are sized for a 6-inch embroidery hoop, but you can scale the templates larger or smaller with a printer to create a wreath with a different size. Set the templates aside.
Stretch the fabric inside the embroidery hoop, pulling the fabric taut. Use sewing shears to trim away the excess fabric around the back of the hoop.
Remove the adhesive backing from the sheet of craft foam, and adhere the foam to the back side of the fabric, using your fingers to smooth out any wrinkles or bubbles underneath the surface of the fabric. Trace the ear template twice onto the foam with the Sharpie, and use sewing shears to cut out the ear pieces.
Use hot glue to affix the ear pieces on either side of the embroidery hoop tightening screw at the top of the hoop, so that the fabric side of the ears is visible from the front of the wreath.
Apply a foam piece to the back of the white felt as you did for the ear fabric. Trace the bunny paw piece twice onto the foam side of the stacked pieces with a Sharpie and cut each paw out with shears.
Using the Sharpie, trace the paw pad and toe pieces onto the pink felt: 2 pad pieces, and 6 toe pieces. Cut out each piece with sewing shears or pinking shears for a decorative touch. Affix a pad piece and 3 toe pieces to each paw with hot glue, as seen below, and then affix the paws at and angle along the bottom edge of the wreath with hot glue.
Affix the pom pom to the wreath with hot glue so that it overlaps the paw pieces slightly.
Finish by making a bow with the wired ribbon and attaching it to the wreath with hot glue, positioning it between the ear pieces so that it hides the embroidery hoop tightening screw.
Your adorable bunny Easter wreath is complete!
It would be really cut to create three of these with different fabric and hang them all in a row or prop them up in a line on a mantel!
