DIY: How to Make a Washcloth Bunny

Valentine's Day and Easter are just around the corner. This is the time when homemade items can truly show how much we love and care for one another.  Whether it be delicious baked goods like cookies or a fun little craft to put beside a box of chocolates, a little touch of personalization is a must.  

Because I love to include little handmade crafts with my gifts, I did a search for something fun to make. My mom saw me searching and exclaimed that she used to make bunny washcloths.  I blinked with confusion.  Who knew there were animals that could be made from a washcloth. I had to know her secret and insisted she shared her talents.  The bunny, as it turns out, is adorable!  Here are the instructions to make the bunny.


  • 1 Washcloth
  • 1 rubber band
  • 2 googly eyes
  • 1 nose
  • 1 12" long ribbon


  1. Lay a washcloth flat on a flat surface with one corner facing you
  2. Starting from a corner, roll the washcloth into a long tube
  3. Fold the tube in half
  4. Fold the tube in half again with the two ends going on top of the curved end
  5. Rubber band the most recent folded end to form the cheeks of the bunny, tie a ribbon around the rubber band
  6. Prop the ears up
  7. Glue on a nose, the eyes, and a fluffy tail. Let dry. 
  8. Display and enjoy.

So cute! Be sure to share pics of your creations in the comments below.  We would love to see them.
