Burlap 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.

How to Make a Rabbit Door Hanger

 

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

Burlap

Spray Adhesive

Scissors

Exacto Knife

Yarn

Ribbon

 

Instructions:

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.

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.

  2. I can’t believe you made that out of a foam board! When I first saw it I thought it was probably made of out wood or another harder material. What a cute idea!

    1. Thanks, Megan. The foam board worked perfectly and it will be easy to hang since it is so light weight.

  4. When I saw this adorable rabbit door hanger at the DIY Sunday Showcase, I had no idea it was one of your creations. It’s so cute and looks simple enough that I could do it.

    1. Thank you, Alli! It was simple and didn’t take long to make. I should make a second one for my classroom. The kids would love it!
