DIY Rhinestone Easter Bunny T-Shirt (with tail!)

diyeasterbunnyshirt1

Easter is one among the holidays I really enjoy celebrating with my family. Aside from the religious significance of the day, I really enjoy doing a special craft project for my daughter. Two years ago, I made her an eco-friendly Easter basket, and last year, I made her a DIY reversible Easter dress. This year, I wanted to do something fun and lighthearted. I think even the Easter Bunny himself would approve of this idea.

Thanks to Pinterest, I found a photo of a baby wearing a rhinestone bunny onesie. And of course, serial crafter that I am, I thought, “I could do that.” So armed with a few supplies from Walmart and an idea for how to make it extra special, I did. Here’s how you can do it too.

This is honestly one of the cutest and easiest projects I’ve done in a while.

I didn’t want my bunny to look exactly like the one in the photo, so I created my own bunny face design. Print out the free Easter bunny t-shirt template, preferably on card stock. For an adult t-shirt, scale up the size of the design when you print it. For a baby or toddler, scale down.

Once the ink is fully dry, put the printed template under the front of the shirt with the template centered and facing up. You can use any color shirt you want, but you should be able to see the thick lines from the template through the shirt.

Next, simply use your hot glue gun to attach rhinestones along the outline until it is completely covered.

Part one, done! Of course, I wanted not just a face, but a whole Easter bunny look, because I’m an overachiever. I wanted a tail ๐Ÿ™‚ This is where the pom poms come in.

Thread your needle with a long piece of white thread. Begin stringing pom poms together.

By the time you have about 5-6 in a row, fold them together to create a circle shape. Push the needle through the poms at various angles to pull them tight. Keep adding pom poms and threading them together until you have a ball of fluff in whatever size you’d like.

Finally, sew the pom pom ball onto the back of the t-shirt a few inches above the hem.

TaDa! An Easter Bunny-inspired outfit your kid can wear to go to an Easter egg hunt, the grocery store, school, or anywhere else without being too over the top.

My daughter had some stray bunny ears laying around, so she added them to complete the look ๐Ÿ™‚ And now, some photos of her playing the role of Easter Bunny to perfection.

  1. Oh, my goodness, your little sweetie is such a beauty!!! I too love doing crafts with my little sidekick, though at three, most of our crafts revolve around fingerpaints and macaroni. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    She looks adorable, I predict a style blog of her own in the near future! ~Sarah

  2. If you put it in the washer does the rhinestones stay on or do they come right off? Was just wondering before I make something like this
