Fold a rabbit with big ears
How to fold this pretty Easter Bunny out of a square cloth napkin:
- Fold the napkin in half to form a pyramid-shaped triangle.
- Fold the outer corners up so they meet at the top of the pyramid. The napkin should now look like a diamond-shaped square.
- Fold them in half by folding the bottom half down. The napkin should look like a pyramid again.
- Fold in half from right to left. The napkin should look like the left half of the pyramid.
- Turn the napkin to the left until it is in an upright position.
- Shape the napkin into a bunny by rounding and smoothing the bottom so it takes the shape of a bunny’s face.
- Pinch the napkin just below the ears until it resembles a rabbit’s head.
- Tie a few strands of natural raffia, yarn or twine in a knot and place on top to create the whiskers!

DIY Easter Napkin Rings: Quick & Easy Ideas
For an even simpler Easter table setting, you can tie the napkins with pretty rings instead of folding them in a specific shape. Here are some interesting and quick ideas for crafting.
Make jute napkin rings with rabbit ears
A jute decoration goes well with Easter because it looks very natural. Use some jute ribbon and cheap napkin rings to make these cute bunny ear rings, which are the perfect complement to your pastel colored napkins. All you have to do is glue jute to the outside of the rings and cut out a pair of jute rabbit ears for each ring and attach with hot glue.
A useful hack: If you don’t have napkin rings, you can cut some out of empty toilet paper rolls.
Tie the cloth napkins with artificial greenery
You can use just about anything that you can tie in a loop as a napkin ring. Natural materials are beautiful, but not very durable. Instead, you can take a few sprigs of artificial greenery such as boxwood and use them to make small wreaths as napkin rings. A few artificial Easter eggs will make this minimalist table decoration even more beautiful for Easter.
Small Bird’s Nest as Napkin Ringe
Bird nests are always a beautiful addition to Easter table decorations. For this decorating idea, stop by the craft store to see if there are any mini wicker wreaths left over. These small decorative elements are perfect as napkin rings and can be decorated as you wish. A small sprig of flowers, a bow, an artificial bird – all these decorations create a spring mood at the table.
Decorate napkins with chicken or chicks for Easter
This idea will surely delight the smallest Easter guests! Admit it, you yourself can’t remain indifferent when you find an adorable chick at the Easter table, can you? If you are a crafty person, you can make some little chicks or chickens out of wool or some other material and use them as napkin rings. If you don’t have time, it’s also perfectly fine if you buy them ready-made. You don’t even need real napkin rings. Glue the chicks to rubber bands to make the napkin rings.
