We’ve all been there. You’re on the hook to host Easter brunch, but you haven’t planned anything yet. I’m here to help with quick and easy DIY table decor for Easter. Today, I’m showing you how to make easy bunny napkin rings with free SVG and JPEG files to create the look at home.

Supplies for Bunny Napkin Rings Set

- Hole punch (if using scissors)
You can download your free bunny napkin ring template at the end of this post. Keep in mind, the template also makes for a great Easter banner or other spring craftsy goodness.
Step 1: Cutting Your Easter Bunny Napkin Rings
I designed these napkin holders in both JPEG and SVG format, with two different bunny shapes.
You have two options to cut your bunny silhouettes:
- Open the free printable JPEG file in a word processing or other image editing program. Copy/resize the images as needed and print. Use scissors to cut the bunnies and then make holes using a standard hole punch.
- Use a Silhouette Cameo or Circut Maker to automatically cut the shapes using an SVG file. (Place the paper on your cutting mat with the pattern facing up.)
I always prefer to use my cutting machine for intricate designs like this. That way, there are no extra steps other than attaching your ribbon. Hooray!
With a cutting machine, you can also cut numerous shapes out in a fraction of the time. (Simply copy and paste the pattern in your software.)
Step 2: Attaching the Ribbon
I chose an ivory colored ribbon with gold accents to make my bunny rings. This ribbon came in a bundle that I also used for an elegant bridal shower I hosted last year. (I love to stock up on ribbon like this because you never know when a craft project will pop into your head.)
To create the “tail” of the bunny, first make a knot on one end.
Once you’re satisfied that your bunny has enough “junk in the trunk,” slide the other end of the ribbon into the hole for the tail. Make sure the knot is facing up.
Then, pull the other end of the ribbon through the second hole, and trim the edge with a v-cut as shown below.
I used double-sided tape to secure the ribbon to the bunny neck. You can also use a dab of hot glue.
Step 3: Displaying Your DIY Napkin Rings
I included these DIY napkin rings in my Easter tablescape decor. There are so many other possibilities for mixing and matching with your little paper bunnies.
Picking Your Napkins
This season, I’ve seen so many gorgeous napkin sets out there to decorate an Easter table. It’s hard to choose just one favorite, so I’ve rounded up my best neutral napkin picks below. All napkin sets have 4-5 star ratings and are under $35 at the time of this posting.
You can pick your scrapbook paper to complement any style. I always try to balance a busy napkin fabric with a more solid patterned napkin ring or vice-versa.
Napkin Folding & Presentation
Have you noticed all of the fancy napkin folding on Pinterest lately? For this project, I chose to make a simple triangle shape to slide my Easter bunny napkin rings onto my linens. Maybe I’ll try origami napkins next Easter.
Aren’t these little bunny plates so stinkin’ cute? You can read all about my full table setting in this Easter decor post.
I love the way these bunny rabbit napkin rings turned out. They add such charm to my Easter table, and I didn’t spend extra money on napkin holders that I have to store somewhere!
For more customization, you could try adding little flowers or greenery to the necktie on your bunnies. Jute string would also help you achieve the coveted farmhouse style if that strikes your fancy. Oh, the possibilities.
More Bunny Craft Options
You’re not limited to napkin rings with my template below. Here are a few more ideas for simple Easter crafts you can enjoy with these two bunny silhouettes:
- Easter banner
- Easter cards
- Artwork or craft project for kids
- Place cards with guest names for your table
- Gift tags on Easter baskets
Also, you may notice the scrapbook paper in this post looks familiar. It’s part of a bundle that I used in my Decoupage Wooden Spoons tutorial. If you’re looking for more ways to use leftover scrapbook paper, I have a whole series of posts to check out:
