How To Fold a Bunny Napkin

How To Fold a Bunny Napkin
Here’s some Hare-Raising fun for YOU!  Learn how to fold a Bunny Napkin for all your Spring parties.  I added a little silk cord to give the bunny napkin some “whiskers” and added stability.  I was so pleased with how much personality the little knotted nose and whiskers added.

I’m also crazy for his/her adorable little cottontail on the backside.  They are super cute on a plate or allow them to go wild and hop all over the table.  Just add some paper grass and tulips for a fun and decorative table.

All you need are square napkins in the color of your choice, a ribbon or cord, (silk or raffia would be super cute), an iron, and your ironing board.   Then just follow the folding instructions from Taste or Home below, and press with your iron each time you make a new fold.

After step 6 I tied and secured my bunny with the cord.  All I did was tie a simple knot and trim the ends.  Then I took another smaller piece and tied it again, then trimmed the ends, easy peasy!

Fold the bottom third of the napkin up and the top third down, making a rectangle.

6. Hold the tucked corners securely and pull out the bunny ears on the other end.

I learned how to fold a bunny napkin and put mine together 2 weeks before Easter dinner.  It was such a great feeling to have them all ready to go, and my Easter dinner table looked delightful for my family and friends.  I used bright different colored napkins that matched bright Easter eggs.

    Now, isn’t this just so cute! I’ve seen napkins and towels folded into animal shapes, but never knew how to fold them myself. Now, at least I know how the bunny is done!
