Bunny Gnome Pattern
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, I adore – ADORE – making gnomes. And when I say this is one of the most requested gnome patterns EVER, well that would be an understatement.
When I started down the path of making a new gnome pattern, a bunny gnome was a priority but I didn’t want it to JUST be a bunny gnome. I do not like picking up a pattern to only make one thing – one variation is just boring… I guess that gives you some insight into me, but I feel you should get more bang.

Tips to Make a DIY Easter Gnome
- First, start by grabbing the easy pattern for this adorable bunny gnome here. Now, I will point out that this pattern for the Scandinavian Sweeties gnomes is for a “normal” gnome, but the steps to make the bunny adaptation as shown in my photos is included in the pattern. So you will be able to not only make this bunny gnome, but you can make other gnomes with this sewing pattern too!
- If you would rather not cut all the pieces to make your bunny gnome with scissors, but you have a cutting machine, grab the pattern with cut files for Cricut or Silhouette here. You can save so much time if you’re batching out the cutting for making several gnomes at once!
- One of the “tricks” I like most about this gnome is the easy way I worked-out how to attach the ears. It’s a super-duper secret, but when you get it, you’re going to love it. But, I do have to share a tip about that: try positioning your ears outside your hat in several places before you put them in permanently. The placement of the ears makes the bunny look so unique depending on where you put them, so consider before affixing them permanently.
- I wanted something really pretty for my DIY Easter gnome to be holding that wasn’t overbearing. So I decided to make a quick hand lettered Easter egg like I’d made a couple of years ago. I am SO HAPPY that I did, because it’s so pretty!
