This cute wreath is sometimes called a rag wreath and it’s a great way to use up scrap fabric you have on hand.

Decorate your bunny any way you want. I added flowers to mine but you could add a bow or fabric carrot. If you’d like the template for felt feet, you can download it here – Bunny Feet Template.

The finished size of the bunny wreath is about 12 inches tall. Get all the details below to make this adorable Easter wreath.

How to Make a Scrap Fabric Bunny Wreath – 5 Easy Steps

STEP 1: Cut Fabric Strips

Start by cutting the fabric strips. You will need 18 fabric strips for each ring and they should be about 9 inches long and about 1.25 to 1.5 inches wide.

Cut fabric about 1.25 to 1..5-inches wide x 9-inches long. You will need 18 strips of fabric for each ring.

STEP 2: Make two Wreaths

Tie each fabric strip onto a shower curtain ring by folding it in half and placing it under the ring. Then pull the ends through the loop and tighten them as shown below.

STEP 3: Alternate fabrics until the ring is full (about 18 strips of fabric).
STEP 2: Tie each fabric strip onto the ring by folding in half and placing under the ring. Pull the ends through the loop and tighten as shown above.

STEP 3: Assemble the Body

Trim the ends of one of the wreaths to make it a little smaller for the head. To attach the body wreath to the head, take two strips of fabric from the body and overlap/fold them over on the inside ring of the top wreath. Hot glue to the back and trim any excess fabric hanging down.

STEP 4: Trim the ends of one of the wreaths to make it a little smaller for the head. I found it much easier to do this then to tying shorter strips to the ring. 

To attach the body wreath to the head, take two of the strips of fabric from the body and fold over on the inside of the head ring. Hot glue to the back and trim any excess fabric hanging down.
