Step 1: Make the Bunny

Print out the bunny template image and use the templates to cut out the shapes for the head (x2) and ears (x4). Place right sides together and pin in place. Hand or machine sew along the outside edge leaving a 2-3cm opening along the bottom of the head and ears. Turn the fabric right sides out and stuff the head with toy stuffing until nice and firm. Pinch the bottom of the ears and hand stitch to hold the shape in place.

Once the head has been stuffed you should have a point for the nose. Thread your needle and knot the end of the pink embroidery thread and hand stitch a triangular shape where the point is.Once you’ve stitched the last stitch pull the needle and thread through to the back of the head, pull the thread taught and cut. The end of the thread should then disappear back into the head – this should stop the nose stitches from coming loose. For the mouth, use black thread and pull the needle through as close to the bottom point of the nose as possible and stitch straight down.

With the needle still threaded from the mouth stitch, pull the needle through where you want to position the eyes. Knot the black thread close the fabric and pull the needle back through. You should now have a small knot for the eye. Repeat for the other eye. Use the same method as the nose to cut the thread. Stitch the bottom of the head closed and add the ears. Dust a fluffy eye-shadow brush with pink blusher and add to the cheeks in circular motions if you want your bunny to have rosy cheeks.

Pull some of the greenery off of the artificial flower stems and glue to the inside of the mini plant pot, then glue the bunny in the middle of the pot between the leaves.

Step 2: Add the flowers

Cut the stems off the flowers leaving only the flower head. Glue the flowers to the bottom half of the wreath leaving a small gap in the centre for the bunny pot, then glue the pot in place. Tie the ribbon in a bow and glue to the centre of the wreath.

*If you’re using a polystyrene ring cover the wreath using the same method as the Halloween wreath here*
