Easy DIY Pom Pom Easter Bunny
Updated: Mar 17
This year I said I would make a craft for every holiday and although a little late, I was finally able to get my Easter craft done. If you've been following up with my holiday craft post you know I like cute but easy crafts for kids. My daughter loves crafting so it's the perfect activity for us to do together, plus they make for cute dining room or mantle decor. This time for our Easter craft we decided to do a DIY Pom Pom Easter Bunnies and we love how they came out! Hope you enjoy making this Easter Craft idea! It's a cute and easy bunny craft everyone can participate in making. If my daughter and I can make them, anyone can.
Things you will need
I found everything I needed at Michaels. I'll do step by step instructions but you can also find a quick 30 second video toward the end of the post!
2 different colored felt sheets
black and pink beads for eyes and nose
Cardboard (to make your pom poms)
The cardboard we had at home. You can also use thick card stock if you don't have any cardboard handy.
I've tried several ways but the easiest way to get almost perfectly rounded pom poms is doing this...Get some cardboard, trace and cut out 2 pairs of different sized circles just like the ones pictures above. I used random things in the house like 2 different cup sizes to get these circles. You need TWO bigger circles (the body of the bunny) about 4 1/2 inches in size and TWO smaller ones (the head) about 2 1/2 inches in size.
Grab the 2 smaller circles, line them on top of each other and loosely wrap your yarn until the middle is almost full. Make sure you don't wrap it too tight or the next step will be hard to do.
Now that your circle is almost completely full you want to cut the yarn in between the two cardboard circles like in the picture down below. If you didn't wrap your yard too tight it should be easy to do, if you wrapt it really tight you will have to put some muscle into your cutting.
You will end up with something like this!
Making sure you don't loose any of your cut yard, you want to tie a piece of yard in between the two cardboards very tight and securely.
Now that you have tied it up securely, you can carefully remove the cardboard and you will end up with a round fluff ball. If it's not perfectly round it's ok, you can trim it to make it look nice and round.
Now you will repeat the process to make your bigger puff ball (the bunny's body), and hot glue them both together.
Now you will grab your 2 sheets of felt and cut out some ears. We did them free hand and simply did 2 big ones in the cream color and the smaller ones in pink. Glue the smaller pink cut out felt inside the cream ones. Before glueing them on the bunny, make sure you fold the tips up and then put a dab of hot glue and squeeze about 1/2 inch of the bottom sides together to make sure the ears stay upright. You will end up with something like the picture down below. Now you are ready to glue them on your bunny's head.
Glue on your nose and eyes and voilà!
Heres the final result!
You can use any color combinations you want! My daughter helped make the brown one, with assistance when it was time for the hot glue gun of course, but she had so much fun making it and seeing the end result.
Here's a quick 30 second video we made of the whole process!
Hope you found this DIY craft fun and helpful!
