DIY Scrap Wood Bunnies


It’s almost Easter!  And Spring is in full swing, which means it is the perfect time to celebrate little bunnies in our décor.  Since you all know I love a rustic look, I’m making bunnies out of scrap wood to create adorable rustic look. These are cute additions to decorate with all spring season or for your rustic Easter setting and they are SO SIMPLE. Here is how to get started.

You Will Need:

  • Scissors
  • Ribbon
  • Hot glue/glue gun
  • Wood circles in a variety of sizes (I used 1.5”, 2”, 2.5”, 3.9”, 4.7”)
  • Craft wood shapes (I used ovals and teardrops)
  • Balsa wood scrap pieces
  • Large cotton balls


  1. Lay out the wood circles that you have and arrange them in order. Use a large one for the body, a slightly smaller one for the head, and two smaller ones for the legs.
  2. Use your craft wood shapes for the ears. Use two large ovals with one teardrop to lay over one ear, like it has fallen.
  3. Once everything is laid out how you like it, use hot glue to glue it together.Glue everything but the cotton ball and balsa wood together.
  4. Once everything is dry, stand the bunny up and glue the cotton ball to make your bunny tail at the back with hot glue.
  5. Cut the piece of balsa wood to use like a kickstand to hold up the bunny.Attach with hot glue.
  6. Enjoy the scrap wood bunny décor!

Tip:  For the bunny’s cotton tail, you can re-work the cotton ball to make it a little bigger by pulling it apart little by little until it’s puffy.
