Easter Bunny Crochet Garland

Hippity, hoppity, Easter’s on its way! In less than two weeks to be exact. We typically travel to PA to be with family for spring break and Easter so I don’t really decorate our house much beyond a wreath on the front door. When I realized we would most likely be spending Easter at home this year, I knew I wanted to make things a little more festive for the kiddos. Crochet to the rescue!

I got the idea for these sweet little bunnies when my daughter asked if I could crochet an Easter bunny for her baby brother. Since I’m currently surprise homeschooling 3 kids while chasing a toddler, I went with a small and simple design that I think turned out super cute. So cute that I couldn’t stop making them!

The possibilities for these adorable crochet Easter Bunnies are up to you! They are fast to make and are perfect as an Easter basket gift or strung together as garland for decoration. They would also make adorable nursery decor!

As for color, I personally can’t resist the traditional soft pastel Easter colors, but also I think these bunnies would look amazing done in different shade of creams and browns. Or any color combo you can come up with!

For first panel, fasten off and weave in ends.

For second panel, do not break yarn. Continue to bunny assembly instructions.

Bunny Assembly

Before joining panels, attach a pom pom (see instructions below) to the front panel. Front panel will be the one facing you as you SC to join. Use the long tails and a yarn needle to attach pom pom to the center of the “body” circle.

  • Align the two bunny panels with the wrong sides facing in (wrong sides will have an extra line on the body circle).

  • Begin SC evenly around to join. I think it looks best to do a sl st instead of a SC where the head joins the body and where the ears join the head.

  • Before joining the head and ears of the two panels, stop and lightly stuff body and head with fiber fill (no need to stuff ears).
  • Continue stitching around to join. When you get back to your first SC, sl st to join edging. Fasten off and weave in ends.

Mini pom poms

Wrap yarn around all four tines of a fork, leaving about 1/2 inch of space at the base of tines. Make about 40 wraps. Cut yarn.

Cut a 12” length of yarn. Slip it through the center space between the tines, wrap tightly around loops of yarn and tie as tightly as you can.

Wrap yarn around bundle to create pom pom

Slide yarn off of fork and use sharp scissors to cut the loops on either side. Fluff yarn and use scissors to trim and shape pom pom, being careful not to cut the long tails. Use the long tails to secure pom pom to bunny panel.

Garland

– With white yarn, ch 240. Fasten off.

– Use a small bit of yarn and yarn needle to attach bunnies to chain in even intervals.

– Thread the yarn through the back panel of the bunny at the top of the “head” (near where the ears attach), then thread it through the chain (this keeps it from sliding). Tie tightly and cut or weave in ends to hide them.

– To make it even more festive, attach a few mini pom poms (or larger ones – I have a tutorial for that here!) in between the bunnies!

– Admire your new garland!
