Spring is here and Easter is just around the corner!! Here is a cute Easter decoration that you can make using vintage doilies or with doilies that you crochet!
Watch the video tutorial here (or scroll down for directions!):
For this project you will need:
11″ x 14″ Canvas
1/3 yard of burlap
1 large white pom pom
glue gun and glue sticks
2 doilies (1- 4″ and 1- 5 1/2″)
2 bunny ears
(for the doilies and bunny ears, I used size 10 crochet cotton and size 6 crochet hook!)
The doilies I used are from a 1941 crochet book called “Tips on Tables” by the Spool Cotton Company.
Here is the pattern for the larger doily called Sorcery.

To make the bunny ears:
Chain 63. dc in 4th chain from hook and in the next 25 chains. 2 dc in each of next 3 chains. dc in each of next 2 chains. 2 dc in each of next 3 chains. dc in next 26 chains. Finish off and repeat so that you have 2 bunny ears!
To make the Doily Bunny:
Cut your burlap so that is the same size as your canvas. Pull out some of the threads around the edges to give it a frayed took. Using your glue gun, add a bead of glue about an inch from the edge of the canvas to glue your burlap to the canvas.
Next, lay out your doilies and bunny ears to create your bunny shape. (Refer to photo for placement or watch video tutorial here.) Using your glue gun, glue the doilies and ears in place.
Using glue gun, put a circle of glue in the center of your larger doily. Press pom pom onto glue to give your bunny a tail!
Enjoy your lovely doily bunny Easter decoration!!
