How to Make Felt Chocolate Bunnies

Posted by on Mar 26, 2014 in crafts, dining room, easter | 37 comments

Back 2 years ago when I started this blog…

…I knew nothing of camera settings and photo editing.

I’m still no professional, but I have learned a bit.

{And I still have A LOT more to learn!}

But I’m going to pull 4 pictures out of the vault…to show you how to make these chocolate bunnies.

Be kind. :)

How to Make a Felt Chocolate Bunny

Supplies:

100% wool sweater in brown from the thrift store

{Make felt out of the sweater by washing it in hot water and drying it on the hot setting – you get such a great quality of felt when you use this method – but craft store felt would also work!}

bunny pattern

scissors

poly fill

sewing machine or glue gun

Trace out a pattern.

{If I knew how to get this one to you, I would…I still have a few more things to learn!}

Trace 2 bunnies and cut out.

Sew or glue together leaving a hole at the bottom for the poly fill.

Sew or glue the opening closed.

Easter Table Setting

I just love how they look on my Easter table.

Easter Centerpiece

The first year I made them I tied orange and white gingham ribbon around them, but this year I’m liking less color.

Easter Decorations

I’m sticking more to the whites and pale pinks.

By next year I could be back to color again.

You know how that goes. :)

But if that’s the case, the little brown bunnies should still work!

Who knows…they might be sporting metallic gold ribbon by next year?!

Life to the full!

  1. I was going to make a joke about gold leaf bunnies, but then I thought, hey, that might actually look really cool! :). And if anyone can gold-leaf a bunny, it’s you!

    • And what I forgot to say is, your Easter table is gorgeous!!

  2. I love this idea! (actually i think i have come to love all your ideas) and these are non-fat, genius! ;)

  3. Must make some chocolate bunnies and the best part–non fat chocolate bunnies.

  4. So darn CUTE! Table does look beautiful and I see that adorable grapevine bunny is welcomed guest – love it!

  5. I love your styling. I too have gone more neutral this year with decorating my home and tablescapes. I LOVE your chocolate felt bunnies….low cal too! Thanks for sharing.

  6. Oh I definitely need a few of those felt bunnies!

  7. adorable!

  8. SO ADORABLE…and LOVE your plate setting!!!!! Can I ask where to get this setting from????? THANKS!!!

  9. such a cute idea! love that it is an upcycled craft, too!

  10. Definitely think the sweater turned felt has a nicer cozier look for the bunnies. So cute as always. Don’t think there’s anything I didn’t love that I saw. Your dishes are very delicate looking but so pretty, love the very subtle pattern on them.
    Shucks I forgot to look for the wreaths yesterday at $tree so I could make one of your bigger bunnies. We didn’t go to $tree I like. I have several templates I can use to make the “chocolate” felt bunnies.
    I’ve got to stay away from Easter candy. Luckily (if there’s anything good about losing all my bottom teeth) I can’t eat most of anything I used to stuff in my face all too often anymore, lol. Have one tooth on bottom so loose I wish it would come out, hurts like the dickens.
    Hope you’re having a great Spring so far. How’s your Mom doing? Hope she’s recovering well. Happy spring days.

  11. So cute!!! I love all your beautiful Easter decorations – especially the “Welcome” sign. I just shared your post on my Facebook page. Thanks so much for yet another wonderful idea! – Dez :)

  12. Such a clever and charming idea! A sweater! Who would have thought?

  13. Adorable project. I’m sure the kids love them too!

  14. What an awesome table favor idea! And, your decorations look gorgeous! Can I come to your house for Easter? ;) Pinning this sweet post.

  15. So adorable! Love the Easter decor in your home. Your felt bunny tops it off! Pinned :)

  16. So dang cute and I love how your whole tablescape looks! I would love to have you join me for my Centerpiece Wednesday linky party and share this post with us. Come on over  http://thestylesisters.blogspot.com/2014/04/centerpiece-wednesday-cool-blues-with.html

  20. I love these “chocolate” bunnies! I’m going to be making them for my five grandchildren. Their parents don’t allow candy, so what is a Grandma to do? This is the best non-candy idea I’ve seen in years! Thank you for sharing!

  22. The bunny is so, so cute!

  25. May be too close to Easter to get these bunnies made by me, but I do have some brown felt handy. Way too cute. Beautiful tablescape. I too am new to the blog world. I’ve only posted 2 times so far. Relying on iPad photos for now until I have more time this summer to study my digital camera.

  35. Hi- I just found your blog on Lynn’s Savy Southern Style. What a bunch of wonderful crafts and beautiful floral wreaths, etc you have made. I had a fun time reading quite a few (probably 20) of your shares. Thanks for sharing. Paula
    ps who makes your flatware on this particular post? It is different and I really like it.

  36. I constantly spent my half an hour to read this website’s articles or reviews every
    day along with a cup of coffee.
