Burlap Rabbit Door Hanger for Spring

Rabbit Door Hanger for Spring


Winter is over and spring is finally here.  Hurray!   I’m welcoming the season with a rabbit door hanger that I crafted for my front entry and that’s not all, I’m also helping to host a Best of DIY party where 24 of my blogging friends are sharing a project that is just to inspire you to make something wonderful for your own home.


25 Best DIY Projects

Making a Rabbit Door Hanger is an easy project.  If you make one, in no time, you’ll have your own to welcome spring and your guests.


Materials Needed:

Foam Core Board


Spray Adhesive


Exacto Knife





Draw the silhouette of a rabbit on the foam core board. If you aren’t artistic, print an image of a rabbit from the Internet to use as a guide or find one in a child’s coloring book.

Cut a piece of burlap slightly larger than the rabbit cutout.

Spray one side of the foam core rabbit with spray adhesive. This will be the front of your rabbit. Apply burlap to the foam core, pressing it down and smoothing it out with your hand.


How to Make a Rabbit Door Wreath




Flip the rabbit over to the back side. Trim along the outside of the rabbit, leaving enough burlap to fold over and affix to the back of the rabbit. Cut slits in the burlap to allow it to fold neatly over the curves.

Spray the edges of the back side of the rabbit with spray adhesive and fold the burlap pieces over, pressing so they stick.

Glue or staple a loop of ribbon to the back of the rabbit for a hanger.
