Am I the only one who thinks that bunnies are super adorable? Around Easter cute little Peeps, fun window clings, and wall decorations all sport the springy little animals which seriously delights me. While shopping at Hobby Lobby (love that store) for supplies for this DIY spring wreath, I saw this gorgeous silhouetted moss bunny hanging. Like most craft-o-holics, I saw it and immediately thought, “I need one of these but I can totally make one like it at home.” So that’s what I did and the end result is this easy and beautiful DIY moss bunny wall hanging! The best part is that you can make your own for a fraction of what it would cost you in the store.

- Foam Board (Mine came from the dollar store)
- Box Cutter
- Fine Grit Sand Paper
- Mod Podge
- Loose Moss
- Spray Sealant
- Black Acrylic Paint
- 7/8” Black Wired Ribbon
- Picture Hook
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
Cut your foam board in half, bisecting the longest edge.
Free-hand draw a silhouette of a bunny.
- I chose to draw a side profile of a bunny but you can draw whatever is easiest for you. If you aren’t confident in your drawing skills, a quick Google search will give you an outline you can print and tape to your foam board. Simply cut out the outline of the taped image in step 3 just as you would the drawing.
Cut out your bunny using a box cutter (or XActo knife).
After you cut it out, the edges will be rough. Sand the rough edges with your sand paper.
Generously coat your bunny with Mod Podge.
Place on a piece of newspaper or poster board and cover entire bunny with moss.
Shake off excess moss and return to container. Allow to dry completely.
Add a second generous coat of Mod Podge.
Again, cover with moss and shake off excess. Allow to dry completely.
- Your bunny may require a third coat of Mod Podge and moss. This is completely up to your discretion. The bunny pictured only has 2 coats.
In a well-ventilated space, spray your bunny with your sealant and allow to dry.
Paint the edges and back of your bunny with black acrylic paint. Allow the paint to dry completely.
- If you would like, you can add a second coat of paint. I chose to not to because the painted side will be against the wall.
While waiting for your paint to dry, create your bow. Cut 5 feet of ribbon from the spool.
Fold your ribbon in on itself as pictured.
Tie a scrap of ribbon or a twist tie in the center of your ribbon.
- If you use a scrap of ribbon, be sure to cut the ends off.
Fluff your ribbon out to create a bow.
Do not cut the ends off of your ribbon on your bow.
Once your paint is dry, attach your picture hook to the back of your bunny using hot glue.
Tie your ribbon around the neck of your bunny. Add a dab of hot glue on the back if necessary.
Once everything is dried, you can hang it up on your wall and enjoy. If you choose to hang it outdoors, I recommend spraying the entire bunny (front and back) with your sealant spray to help protect it from the elements. I love ours so much that I believe it will find a place in our home year round. It is beautiful Easter décor but can function as regular décor as well. Holiday décor is even better when it fits with your existing decorating scheme!
