DIY Easter Bunny Utensil Holder
I am so excited to share with you how to create your very own Easter Bunny utensil holder. This is a fun easy craft, you can make at home with only a few materials. If you don't have a sewing machine you can always use hot glue in place of steps that require a sewing machine. You can find more information on my blog article here!
Step #1 Cut Your Pattern
Create your own pattern! You can use cardboard or paper if you want to be creative! You want to go about 12-14" so it's big enough to fit on a plate after seeing it all together.

Step #2 Cut Your 2 Bunny Shapes on Fabric
We decided to use drop cloth and a tricking fabric to show a few examples. You can use whatever fabric you want to match you table decor. Keep in mind this is a project you can use for any holiday with any share or theme. Cut two 11"-14" (disregard photo wrong size.)
Step Cut Your Silverware Pouch
Next you want to create the silverware pouch. Cut 2 fabric bottoms about 5.5" use the bottom of your bunny pattern to make this shape.
Step Sew Your Top Seam of Pouch
Take the two bottom pouches and sew them both together adding a top seam.
Step #5 Pin Your Patterns
Next pin the two bottom pieces onto the other two top parts. You are then going to sew around the entire outer portion of the pattern of the bunny. If you do not have a sewing machine, you can easily hot glue or use fabric glue, to stick the pieces together at this step.
Step #6 Make Your Bunny Tail
You can use yarn or even a cotton ball if you don't want to make your own tail. Cut a piece of yarn about 10" you can see in photo its off to the left of the the yarn wrapped around the finger. I wrapped the yarn about 30 times around my two fingers. Once you've done this slide the 10" strip down the middle of your two fingers. Then tie it off twice to ensure it is in place. Then you will cut the yarn all the way around. It will then look like a pom-pom.
I share a video of this process on my blog. I use a pet brush to scruff up the pom and make it look more fluffy.
If your going a non-sew route you can easily hot glue the tail at this step.
Step #6 Add in Silverware
Add your silverware inside the pouch.
