We’re getting ready for Easter around here! Spring has sprung for sure. I figured I’d better get some Easter decorations up before it passes me by. Today’s project is a Peeps bunny bunting that I bought the supplies for last year around Easter and then never got around to making. That seems to happen a lot since I have crafting A.D.D. 😜! Those little Peeps bunnies are so cute! So I figured why not make a cute, colorful bunny bunting for our fireplace. I do not like to sew so I improvised with hot glue! Super easy and super cute!
Here’s how you can make it too!

Bunny Bunting Supplies:
Thin ribbon I used this
Felt in yellow, pink, lavender, and light blue (I fit 2 bunnies front and back on each 9×12 sheet. It will depend how long you make your banner, how much you need. I bought 2 sheets of each color for my 7 foot banner.)
Hot glue sticks

Bunny Bunting Instructions:
Start out by printing the bunny pattern. I printed mine on cardstock so it was a little easier to trace around.
Fold your piece of felt in half and trace 2 bunnies on each one. When you cut it out you will cut through 2 layers at once and have a front and back for your bunny.
After you have them all cut out, use something round to make the eyes and nose. I used the end of a paint brush. You could also use the round tip of a bobby pin, a pencil eraser or a dotting tool. Be careful that your paint doesn’t bleed through to your second layer.
Once your paint has dried, separate your two layers of felt and hot glue just around the edge of the inside of the bottom layer leaving a small (1 inch) opening at the bottom for the stuffing. Then place the layer with the face on top and press around the edges.
Take a small amount of Poly-fil and stuff it inside the opening. Then hot glue the opening and press the edges together. The stuffing makes them look a bit more like the real marshmallow Peeps 😊.
Next measure out your ribbon to the length you need for your space with a little extra to allow it to swag a little. Lay the ribbon out on your work surface and space your bunnies how you like them. You can always measure it out so they’re all equally spaced, but I just eyeballed it because I have no interest in doing math when I’m crafting 😂.
Hot glue the very tips of the ears to the ribbon.
Now hang that cute little bunny bunting so everyone can admire it!
