This is a story about how to DIY an Easy Pom Pom Bunny. This tutorial includes a video on how to make your own pom pom bunny for Easter. It’s an awesome craft for kids.
Now that you know how to make pom poms, I thought it would be fun to share a really simple project you can make with your new skills! You know, something other than the usual pom pom to go on a hat type of thing. How does a DIY Easy Pom Pom Bunny sound to you? What do you mean you don’t know how to make pom poms?? Check out my THIS story that shows you exactly what to do, and then meet me back here. I’ll wait.
This update is a double bonus, because we are into the Easter season and who doesn’t think about bunnies as we approach Easter? So you get to make pom poms AND you get to have a cute little bunny. What’s better than that?
I call this cutie the Topsy Turvy bunny. He’s a mischievous wee lad who is obviously nosing around into something. So all we see is that cute cotton tail and his enormous bunny feet.
As far as making yarny toys go, a pom pom bunny is about the easiest craft you’ll find. As an added bonus, the cute factor is off the charts. I never had anyone who did not break into a huge smile upon seeing this little guy. He is a melter of hearts, that’s for sure.
If the whole world would stop and drop whatever they are doing and just sit and make pom pom bunnies for an afternoon, I think we would see a different world come into being. I’m calling for a worldwide summit to stop everything else and enjoy tea and chocolates while making pom pom bunnies. Who’s with me?
Here’s what you need to make this DIY Easy Pom Pom Bunny craft:
- Yarn for the body. This can be anything, but I had grey left over from My Magic Scarf project, so I used that.
- Yarn for the cotton tail. This is preferably white. It is a cotton tail, after all.
- Two colors felt for the paws and pads.
- Large and small pom pom maker. I recommend the Clover sets.
- Tacky glue. It’s a brand name and works the best for these small craft projects.
- Scissors. Please invest in good scissors. I have a double set from Singer I use for all my yarn crafts and sewing projects.
- Hemp String. Trust me.
- My free Printable with all the instructions and supply list. You can get the free printable by CLICKING RIGHT HERE.
I used super bulky weight yarn to make these bunnies, because I had it in my stash. Also, the pom poms make up really fast if you use a heavier weight yarn. You can use worsted, but it takes longer to make the pom poms. If you are unclear on making pom poms, please check out my full tutorial by visiting this story. It includes a video.
I know I’m partial here, but I think this bunny beats the Elf on a Shelf idea all the way to the North Pole and back!
Unlike that gangly elf who follows you around the room with that unseemly gaze, this little cotton tail bunny is not going to creep anyone out! And if it does, do you really think you should keep that person on your friend list?
Without further delay, let’s get right to that fun tutorial video I made for you.
So that’s all there is to making your very own Topsy Turvy Bunny! Hop to it! (I’m sorry. I couldn’t resist.) Enjoy this cute project with your children or grandchildren.
