I wanted to make the girls Easter shirts this year.  I have been inspired by pictures on Pinterest of bunnies.  So, I decided I was going to make them a bunny shirt.  I also wanted to keep this graphically simple and not put any words with Easter on it.  I didn’t want to date it and wanted the girls to get a little more wear out of it than just the typically week to two weeks.  At least for my eight year old,  Emma.  Lily, my three year old, will probably be wearing this shirt till Christmas because it’s has her favorite colors.  It’s must for a Mom having a three year old that their favorite colors are used as many of you know! 


Here’s what you need:

  • T-Shirt (Hobby Lobby has great prices for colored t-shits and were only $3.49 and then they were having an additional 30% off.  You can also use one of their coupons too.)
  • Fabric Paint
  • Freezer Paper
  • Paint Brush
  • Pencil
  • X-acto Knife
  • Cardboard
  • Iron
  • Pom Pom Trim
  • Needle
  • Thread 
drawn bunnies

Start by either hand drawing you design (which is what I chose to do) or getting a clip art image that you can cut out and trace.  Whatever works best for you.  I knew the look of the rabbit I wanted, so I just hand drew the design.

If you have never done a freezer paper stencil on a t-shirt, you must have the dull side up and shiny side down when drawing/tracing your design.  The shiny side of the freezer paper is how  it will stick to your t-shirt upon ironing.

bunnies cut out

Cut the bunny design out with a X-acto knife.


Center on your t-shirt and iron.

Fill your design in with fabric paint.  For the white paint, I found I had to put several coats.  Not just the recommended two.  I put five to six and used a hair dryer to speed up the drying process in between each coat.

Let dry for a couple of hours.  Very carefully peel off the freezer paper.

Sometimes with freezer paper stencils you will find that you need to go back and touch up a few of the lines.  Freezer paper is great for a stencil.  However, it’s not always full proof.  Just go back and even up some up the lines if necessary.

Cut a pom pom off of the pom pom trim.  Trim the extra strings off that attach the pom pom to the trim and sew it to the bunny.

There you have it.  Quick and easy Easter shirts that you can make for your kids.  Especially if your like me and are running a little behind on everything for Easter.  You can have them in no time.

Frequently Asked Questions

What can the Easter Bunny leave?

Consider him the Easter equivalent of Santa Claus. Make sure your kids are aware that the Easter Bunny only delivers eggs to well-behaved kids historically! The Easter Bunny has evolved from his original tradition of leaving painted eggs for children to discover to his current practice of leaving chocolate eggs.

Why is bunny used for Easter?

One theory is that the symbol of the rabbit stems from pagan tradition, specifically the festival of Eostre—a goddess of fertility whose animal symbol was a bunny. Rabbits, known for their energetic breeding, have traditionally symbolized fertility.

Why do we use an Easter Bunny?

Originally popular among German Lutherans, the “Easter Hare” served as a judge at the beginning of Eastertide, determining whether children had behaved well or badly, much like Santa Claus’s “nice” or “naughty” list.
