DIY Sleepy Time Easter Bunny

Helping you get a good night's sleep.


  • Stuffed bunny
  • Rice
  • Dried lavender
  • Essential Lavender oil
  • Needle
  • Thread


  1. Cut a little bit of the stitching, 3 inches. Pull out all of the synthetic stuffing, including the packet of micro-beads they use to keep it fresh
  2. Re-stuff with rice or buckwheat hulls-it’s lighter and easier to stuff (If you can’t find them everyone can find rice.)
  3. Mix rice with dried lavender, how much depends on size of animal.
  4. Combine 1 cup dried lavender, 15 drops lavender essential oil and 3 cups rice. Mix it up in a bowl.
  5. Use a funnel and fill the bunny with rice mixture, stitch it back up and then you’re done.
