Easter Bunny Napkin Ring Free Printable

This is an updated post and free printable to make Easter Bunny Napkin Rings. They will help you set your dinner table in colorful Easter fashion that all your guests, both young and old will love.  


I enjoy setting my dining room table for special occasions and Easter is one of them. I have trimmed a table cloth with Easter Eggs and made free printable bunny gift tags that also make great dining table place cards, but my favorite way to add colorful Easter style is wrapping an Easter Bunny around a spring inspired napkin and placing one on each plate around the table.

“Bunny Ears” is my go-to way to fold a napkin when I set the table. I usually place the napkin by itself in stemmed glasses on the table so the two ends of the rolled napkin stand straight out of the glass. Doing this adds height to the table.

For Easter, I decided to have some fun and made bunny face napkin rings to go over the rolled napkins. Once assembled they look like a bunny with cloth ears. Isn’t it cute?

I have made them with solid white napkins, but they look so much cuter when you use a colorful napkin.

Once you make the paper bunny napkin ring using the free printable (link below) and place it over a rolled napkin, you can have even more fun styling how the ears will fall on the dinner plate.

You can keep the ears straight or bend them to make a floppy ear Easter Bunny.

You can even un-roll the rolled ends to resemble bunny ears you can see into.

Rolling the napkins is easy and so is cutting out the bunny face and ring from the free-printable. If you have children or grandchildren, they will enjoy making them with you.

The napkin rings do double-duty as place cards when you write your guest’s names in the bowtie. Either way they can be reused year after year.

  1. Fell in love with this idea to decorate our Easter table and as we were having a large crowd I decided to make the napkins with the help of a sister who went along with my idea. All 46 of our guests had one. If I knew how to send a picture along with this comment I would! Everyone was duly impressed.

    1. Hi Jennifer –

      WOW!! that is a lot of guests… and a lot of bunny napkin rings. :-) I am impressed!!!! It makes me happy to know that you were inspired by my post to make them. That makes my day.

    1. Hi Cathy – When I saw the colorful napkins at Pier 1 I knew they would look so cute with the bunny napkin rings. Let me know if you get this reply in your inbox.

  2. Please tell me what kind of polka dot plates those are……I know you bought them at Home Goods but I would like to know the brand name………..Thanks so much, I enjoy your posts!

    1. Hi Shirley –

      The plates are made by Rosanna and called Party Polka Dots. I have searched for them, but could not find them anywhere online. I hope you can find them. They are my favorites and have made it through many a “china and dishware purge” over the years. :-)

  3. I can not express how much I love all your table settings, but this one is my very favorite!!

    I still use your full bunny printable in a custom door size.. I used plain poster board from my Dollar Tree (love Dollar Tree),. I used blue and then used cotton from pill bottles for their tails. Oh, I used clear spray to completely seal the poster board after I drew the eyes and nose on. Then I glued the cotton tails on and used curling ribbon to put around the neck in gold, pink and regular lavender ribbon too. Very cute and thrifty. I will make new this year, because I didn’t store them and they got ruined. But they last for years if you take care of them!

    1. Hi Sheryll –

      You just made my day. :-) So happy to hear that you got creative and used the full printable in such a clever way. Thanks for sharing you idea.

  7. I’m not sure you will see this as your original post was for a few years back, but I love the Easter Bunny napkin rings. My question is when I click to open pdf for bow tie, how do I add names to the middle? Thanks

    1. Hi Vicki –

      Once you click on to download the .pdf to your computer you can add the names in one of two different ways. 1. In Photoshop – open the .pdf file in the program and add the names. Save it as a new document and then print them out. 2. If you don’t have Photoshop you will have to do it the old fashion way. Download and print the .pdf as is. Then write the names out with a colorful marker on each bow tie in your best print or handwriting.

  8. Your ideas are really creative and the directions impeccable. Thank you so much for sharing!

  9. It’s January 2013 and I’m looking ahead to Easter already. I absolutely adore your Bunny Napkin Ring.
    I’m wondering if you could share what print you used for your name tags? Simple yet so easy to see and read.

  10. Wow, this is so awesome. I am so glad I stumbled upon you because I needed these ideas (The day before Easter). I am on it now. Thanks so much for sharing your fab ideas. This is such a wonderful post! I would love it if you would share this at our WIW linky party. Hope to see you there.

    1. Hi Shelley – I enjoy setting tables – my display background kicks into gear. I am not so creative when it comes to cooking the food for entertaining though. I over cooked the ham just a tad – it crumbled when cut :)

  11. I love this……. everyone should read your blogs. So many wonderful ideas and all for FREE! I just drew your bunny face and bow tie with a soft crayon by placing some puter paper over my monitor and I will file them in my stash of holiday stuff for windows.

    Oh yeah, I may have forgot to tell you that I hung my bunny wreath up yesterday. I tried using a smaller wooden twig wreath for the top of bunny, but could not get the plastic hangers to go in, so I went to the Dollar Tree and bought this small green flower foam thingy to use. It did not have rounded edges like a foam wreath, but I cut a circle out of those expensive paper plates I had left over from a demo I did…… and covered it with some left over white tissue paper before putting my ribbon around it….. ribbon is that sheer stuff. I don’t have much, but I sure loved your ideas and bunny. He is cute, but not as professional as your cute one. I lucked out and found an odd pink hanger….. grin.

    I am so glad Trax is coming home this afternoon. And yes, he will be very larthargic I bet. I know he will be glad to be home and see you and especially the girls.

  12. LOL! I’m not even hosting, we’re just making a few things and bringing them to the daughter’s house, and I haven’t gone yet either, Diane! My plan is to shoot out early this morning and get what I need. Your table looks great, especially for just shopping your house! I am loving those bunny napking rings ~ great idea and love that it is a place card as well. Thank you for the download on that. Happy Easter!

    1. Hi Kathy – After I finish working on returning comments and e-mails this morning I am off to the super market. Hopefully that will go quickly. The bigger thing I have to do is clean my house. I keep it organized, but boy it needs a good scrubbing!!! I haven’t done it in a long time and am actually looking forward to it. :) I can’t believe I just said I am looking forward to cleaning – I guess I caught the spring cleaning bug :) I hope you and your family have a wonderful Easter. XO

  13. Thanks for these lovely ideas, Diane! I love the bunny ears napkin and will definitely do that this year – how fun. Also the doily under the plates – so pretty. I just wrapped plain votives in lace ribbon as I saw on Pinterest and this would go along so nicely with those.
    Wishing you a very happy Easter!

    1. Hi Lisa – Thanks. Great idea with the lace ribbon – I bet it looks so pretty. They will go perfectly with the bunny ear napkins. I hope you have a very Happy Easter. Enjoy!

  14. Diane,
    LOVE the adorable Easter Bunny napkin holder. Great ideas for a limited budget. I love the dollar store for things like the doilies and glass votive holders.

    Thanks for sharing your creativity with us. Happy Easter !

    Stacey :)

    1. Thanks Stacey-

      The dollar store is the best for doilies – it is the only place I know that always carries them. Happy Easter!
