4 Easy Peter Rabbit Home Decor Ideas

Whether you’re looking to quickly update your home decor for Easter or subtly bring Peter Rabbit into your everyday style, here are four easy Peter Rabbit-inspired home decor ideas to get you started.

Peter Rabbit is a perfect theme for:
  • Easter
  • Baby Showers
  • Birthdays
Update your throw pillows.

There’s no faster way to update a room than changing out your pillowcases!

Transforming your space with new throw pillows doesn’t have to involve sewing machines or complicated techniques. Create a stylish no-sew pillow in minutes using just a square of fabric and a knot-tying method reminiscent of gift wrapping.

No-Sew Peter Rabbit Pillow

Supplies List
  • 15″ x 15″ / 40 by 40 cm throw pillow
  • Peter Rabbit fabric: 47″ x 47″ / 120 x 120cm
  • Safety pin (optional)
  • Iron fabric to remove any wrinkles or creases and lay flat on a clean surface.
  • Place pillow insert in middle of the fabric.
  • Take top edge of fabric and fold down over pillow, bringing fabric edge to meet in the middle. Smooth out any wrinkles and ensure fold is neat and even.
  • Repeat folding process with bottom edge of the fabric, folding fabric edge up to meet in the middle of pillow.
  • Moving to the fabric left of the pillow, fold edges inward to form a triangle shape. Then, fold edges again to create narrower triangles. Repeat process on the other side of the pillow.
  • Fold both left and right sides of fabric across the pillow, making sure they reach the opposite side.
  • Secure the fabric in place by tying a knot at the center of the pillow, where the folds meet.
  • Tuck or pin any loose ends under the knot for a tidy finish. You can choose to display the knot either facing inward or outward, depending on your preference.
Use Peter Rabbit Cookie Cutters For DIY Decorations.

Cookie cutters offer more than baking fun—they’re handy tools for crafting affordable decorations for decorating a spring tree, displaying on your fireplace mantle as bunting or using as place cards at a brunch.

Decorating trees isn’t just for Christmas! Prune a tree branch with green leaves still on, or repurpose dead ones, painting them white for an Easter or spring-inspired display.

Peter Rabbit Cookie Cutter Decoration

Supplies List
  • Roll out paper clay to a uniform thickness, 1/8″ is ideal.
  • Press Peter Rabbit cookie cutters firmly into clay to cut out silhouette shapes.
  • Use a skewer to punch a hole at the top of each silhouette shape.
  • Set clay decorations aside for 1-3 days to air dry, depending on thickness.
  • Once fully dried, thread white ribbon through the holes and tie to secure.
  • Hang the Peter Rabbit silhouettes on branches to create an elegant tree centrepiece. They can also be used as gift tags or place cards or strung together to form a bunting for mantles or walls.
Bring the Garden inside.

Bring Mr. McGregor’s garden into your home by using vegetables as displays. Showcase whole heads of specialty lettuce in charming white pots or wooden crates, staying true to the theme while being budget-friendly. In some locations, specialty lettuce is sold with roots intact, allowing them to be placed in water for longer-lasting decorations, just like flowers!

Adorn side tables and mantles with cottage-style flowers, such as Easter daisies and pots of geraniums, straight from the pages of Beatrix Potter’s illustrations. Flowers can be spotted in stories beyond Peter Rabbit, such as “The Tale of Tom Kitten” and “The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck.”

Note: If you have young children, cats or dogs in the house, choose your plants wisely, as some plants can be toxic or poisonous.

Complete your decor update by refreshing your containers. For a Mrs. Rabbit-inspired look, use glass jars filled with white river pebbles or country-style milk pitchers as flower vases.

For Mr. McGregor’s garden vibe, opt for terracotta pots in various sizes to showcase your blooms.

Showcase your Peter Rabbit collection.

Have lots of cute little pieces in your collection? Maybe it’s Peter Rabbit figurines or mini terracotta pots with lettuce seedlings and a little white watering can, inspired by Mr McGregor. By arranging items in a white wooden crate filled with natural wooden basket filler, you’ll be containing and framing your collection without overwhelming or cluttering your space.
