This project is not the quickest craft you will ever make. Trimming the pom poms to get them just right can be addictive and a little time consuming, but it’s such a fun project to do while watching your favorite show plus your children will love playing with them :)
- Wool (thicker, softer wool works best)
- Pony beads
- Thin fishing wire or clear thread
- Hot Glue
- Cotton Balls
The first thing you need to do is create your pom poms. You can make these in any size. There are tools out there to create the perfect pom poms, but I just use your hands! For a smaller pom pom, begin wrapping yarn around two fingers.
Just keep going and going until you have a thick amount of wool (about 60 times around your fingers)
Carefully slip the looped yarn off your fingers and cut a separate 5 inch piece of wool.
Slip it underneath the looped wool and wrap it around to the front, tying it REALLY TIGHT.
Now, slip your scissors through the loops and cut. Keep cutting all the loops until you have a wonky looking pom pom.
Now trim it up and give it a “haircut” until it looks nice and even.
For a larger pom pom, do the same exact process except wrap the yarn around your entire hand then use a hot clue gun to attached the large pom pom to the smaller one.
Now it’s time to make the ears. Cut out some ear shapes out of gray felt and a smaller shape out of pink.
Layer the pink on top of the gray and pinch the bottom. Glue the pinched portion together.
Glue the ears to the head of the bunny.
Next, you want to glue on the black pony beads for eyes
For the whiskers, loop some clear thread together and tie it in half. Snip through the loops with scissors and glue it on the bunny’s face.
Glue the pink pony bead on top for the nose.
And finally, add a cotton ball for the tail if you want!
These little guys would be so cute peeking out of an Easter basket.
