No-Sew Sock Bunny Step-by-Step Tutorial...

Sock bunnies make such cute additions to homemade Easter baskets!

This sock craft tutorial uses an adult size tube sock, but you can use pretty much any size or type of sock for this sock craft.

For example, I love making baby bunnies using baby socks. They're super cute and they fit inside most large plastic Easter eggs for a fun surprise.

In addition to tube socks, you can make these using colored socks, fuzzy socks and/or socks with patterns. Just like sock snowmen and sock spiders, no two sock bunnies will ever turn out exactly the same!


DIY sock bunnies are inexpensive to make. You may even have everything you need already for this easy sock craft.
  • 1 Adult Size Sock
  • About 2 cups Rice (possibly less, depending on the size of your sock)
  • 2 Rubber Bands (clear or white works best)
  • Hot Glue Gun or Fabric Glue
  • Measuring Cup
  • Wide Mouth Funnel
  • White Pom Pom (or yarn to make your own pom)
  • Scissors
  • Craft Foam (for arms and feet)
  • Decorative Craft Supplies: googly eyes, buttons, ribbon etc.
  • Optional: Click here to download the complimentary "Somebunny Loves You" Easter printables in easy .pdf format.

1. Fill sock with around 2 cups of rice.

2. Wrap rubber band around the top of the sock so you have a ball.

Sock Bunny Tutorial: A canning funnel is very helpful for adding the rice.
Trim excess material.

3. If needed, shorten sock length until you have a more manageable length for creating ears. See right ==>

4. Cut that length in half vertically to create two strips coming off the ball.

5. Take each strip and trim off the corners creating a leaf like shape for each ear.

6. Grip the ball where you think the neck should be and squeeze until you have a nice looking bunny head and bunny body. Take a rubber band and wrap it semi-snugly around the neck... not too tight unless you want your sock bunny to have a wobbly bobble head (too loose will allow rice to escape the head).

Note: You can cover up the rubber band when you decorate by using ribbon for a bow or fabric for a scarf.

Creating a no-sew sock bunny couldn't be easier with these simple steps... and now for my favorite part, the face! #nosewsockbunny #sockanimals #sockcrafts #Eastercrafts #sockbunnytutorial

7. Now it's time to make the bunny face using buttons, googly eyes, markers, beads, thread, wire etc.

Sock Craft Tutorial: Memory wire makes a cute nose with whiskers.

Tip: Memory wire makes a cute nose with whiskers. I like to wrap one piece around three pieces several times as shown to the right.

...You can also do something similar with embroidery thread picked apart into strands. Use your imagination, making the face is the coolest part!

These next steps are optional... if you want bunny feet and arms that hold a treat...

Making the optional bunny arms and feet is easy.

8. Cut bunny paws and bunny arms from something like craft foam or felt. Make the arms longer than needed at first because you will trim the extra length later.

9. Glue bunny feet in place.
Next, glue the hands together as if they are grasping each other. ...see photos below
Put the treat or flowers in place and the arms over it to see how tight you need to glue the arms.
I hold everything together and hot glue each of the arms to the sides to ensure a tight fit.
Trim any extra sticking out from the back of the arms if needed. ...See images below for visual instructions on this...

Tip: A hot glue gun really works best for adhering stuff to socks.

A hot glue gun works great for adhering stuff to socks.

You are done!

...Now go on and make somebunny's Easter super hoppy by giving this sock bunny in a basket and/or holding a treat, flowers or a Happy Easter balloon.

That's how to make a super easy bunny from a sock!
