How to Make a Wood Crate Bunny
First, print the bunny ear template and cut out each piece if you need help with the ears. Otherwise, begin by painting the wood crate. I mixed the brown and cream together to try and match the felt I had on hand.
Next, trace the ear shapes onto the tan and pink felt. The smaller size should go with the pink ear inset.
Now glue the pink felt shape onto the tan shape by lining up the bottoms. Add glue to the bottom sides and pinch the two edges together to form an inward shape to each ear.
Next, glue the eyes to the wood crate. Cut 3 pieces of embroidery thread to 4 inches each and glue them right below the eyes in a criss-cross fashion.
Add the pink nose just under the eyes to cover where the whiskers meet in the center to complete the face. Trim the whiskers, if needed.
Finally, add hot glue to the bottom of each ear and glue each to the top of the wooden crate. Tie and glue on a ribbon bow, if desired.
