• Toy stuffing
• Powder blush
• Two black beads

Download all templates for the rabbit, transfer them on the felt fabric and cut them out with scissors.
Sew the two circle cutouts together using buttonhole stitch leaving an opening to be filled with stuffing. Then finish sewing.
To make the leaves of the carrot, fold the green felt in half and make fringes with scissors as shown in the photo above. To make the carrot, fold the piece of orange felt in half. With the orange thread and a basting stitch close the side of the carrot leaving an opening on the top. Now fill the piece with toy stuffing insert the green piece of felt into the opening with the fringes out, and finish the seam with basting stitch.
Join the cutouts of the hands, stitch around the felt with white yarn, leaving an opening to put the stuffing. Finish the seam. Do the same for the other hand and the two ears.
To form the head of the Easter bunny, separate one of the cutouts that represent the face. With the black thread and the basting stitch, embroider one vertical line at the bottom of the face to form the mouth, as shown in the picture above. Then embroider the eyebrows. With hot glue, glue the heart-shaped felt piece for the nose above the embroidered mouth. Using your fingers, spread the blush to form the cheeks.
Sew the black beads using black thread close together just below the eyebrows. Then, with the white thread and the basting stitch, join the two pieces that form the bunny’s head, leaving an opening at the top to fill with toy stuffing. Before completing the seam, attach the ears made in step 3. When the head of the bunny is ready, use hot glue to fix the bottom part and ears on the wreath. Glue the carrots below the face and hands, one above and the other below the carrots. To decorate the wreath, make pompoms out of wool yarn and rolls with strips of felt and glue them all over the wreath ring. To finish off, make a bow with the floral patterned felt and glue it on the bunny head.
With scissors, cut one piece of satin ribbon and a square of the same felt used to make the wreath ring. Make a loop with the ribbon and glue it to the back of the wreath under the flap of felt as shown in the picture. Let dry and hang the wreath on your door.
