Pier 1 Burlap Bunnies {knock off}

Easter is early this year! Hopefully spring will be too!

I am starting to see all the adorable creations on the blogs and in the stores for Easter.

While I was shopping at Pier 1, I saw some burlap bunnies used for napkin holders. I looked to easy to make so I thought it would be a great knock off.

It has been awhile since I knocked off something.


They are just the right touch for a tablescape. Burlap bunnies....how can you go wrong?!!

There is a little sweetness to having a little bunny on your table for springtime feasts.


The frayed ends of the burlap look like hair. There is just enough stiffness to hold the ears up straight.

I can see those little ears listening in on all the table talk and keeping secrets.

They add a smile to my face.

I would have added a carrot for color on the plate but had none in the fridge.

I could have done one of my Pinecone carrots but settled for the celery.

 Love the green touch to the plate.


The napkin makes it look like it has a tail. Any napkin would work too!

So what do you think of my knock off? This is the Pier 1 bunny.



This one is mine....



So I ask you....Is this something you want to know how to make?

Yours look as good if not better (and whole lot less expensive) than the Pier one rings. You sure nailed the knock off. If we had company for holidays and used napkins I'd make them but it's fun to see how you made them so wonderfully. Great job girl.
Happy March days

hi Deneen,
I had the same idea! When I saw those in the catalog I thought, well those would be easy to make! They weren't as easy as they looked, for me anyway! You did a fabulous job! Mine came out sorta wonky, but cute. I added paint and yarn whiskers. They will post on my blog tomorrow,3/7, so stop by a take a look! Happy Easter!
