You still have time to make these super cute, rainbow pompom bunnies to add some fun & fluff to your Easter. Head on below for the tutorial.
Ever since some of my friends had their babies, that are now toddlers, a whole new world of crafts has opened up in our group haha. But, seriously, normally a single 28-year-old woman shouldn’t be spending that much time making pompom bunnies for crying out loud. But hey, I’m doing it for the kids. And I’m only enjoying it just like a little bit. Okay, I’m loving it, it’s so fun, and sometimes it’s okay to be childish! Wow, that was an intense self-chat right there! Sorry you guys had to be part of that haha.
Anyways, last year I made these bunny favor bags for all them kids and filled them with chocolate eggs. And I wanted to give the kiddos something different this year, so I obviously turned to Pinterest for a little help. I didn’t even had to look that much – I’ve found this Easter Bunny Tutorial, and you can find the original tutorial here, and I instantly knew this is what I’m making for them! “You had me at pompoms”, I guess haha.
But, seriously, the bunnies were so cute that I absolutely overlooked the fact that I’m gonna have to make a gazillion of pompoms to end up with enough bunnies for all the kids. No regrets, tho haha.
If you do have some pompoms ready it’s great, make as much bunnies as you’d like, it’s gonna be a piece of cake for you!
However, if you’re gonna have to make the pompoms yourself, which when you’re making like 15 in one sitting is not the easiest of jobs, you don’t have that much free time, and there are like more than 5 kids you’d like to gift these to, then definitely find something else to gift them, and make just 2-3 of these to add some fun to the table! I’ll share some other fun alternative ideas below for you just in case!
Rainbow Pompom Bunnies DIY.
– Yarn Pompoms (in 3 different sizes)
(if you don’t have any, then you’ll need yarn in colors of your choosing & pompom makers)
– Needle & Yarn
– Felt (black for the eyes, or Black Buttons, I didn’t have any, and I used felt)
– Hole Puncher (if you’re making felt eyes for bunnies)
– Glue Gun
– Tiny Pompoms (for the bunnies’ noses)
– Fishing Line
– Glitter Foam (for the ears)
1. If you already have the pompoms in 3 different sized, then you, my friend are halfway there!
If not… Decide how much bunnies you’d like and start making them. You’ll need 3 different-sized pompoms for each bunny.
2. By using the needle + a yarn thread, tie 2 of the large pompoms together, and then add the small pompom or mister bunny’s puffy tail.
3. With your glue gun glue the felt-eyes, or the buttons.
4. Make the bunny’s whiskers out of the fishing line (as seen in the photos).
5. Glue the whisker you made on the back side of the smallest pompom (the side that’s gonna be glued).
5. Now, glue the nose + whiskers between the bunny’s eyes (why am I going through this like I’m speaking to a 9-year-old is beyond me).
6. Draw the ears on the backside of the glittery foam and cut them.
7. Glue the ears with the glue gun.
8. Pompom Bunnies – done!
