Here’s an adorable spring craft to make – pom pom bunnies! Grab the glue gun and transform a pile of pom pom balls and felt into some adorable bunnies. They are fun to play with, but also cute enough for a spring or Easter centerpiece!
My 11 year old has always loved celebrating the changing seasons and making holidays fun. He wanted to make bunnies this year, and helped design this craft. Then he went outside to shoot baskets and left me to assemble the bunnies all myself. Sounds about right, huh? 🙂
Here’s what you’ll need to make some:
- Pom Pom Balls – We used 2 inch ones for the body and head, and tiny ones (not sure of the size) for the feet and tail.
- Felt – You’ll want one sheet of pink for the ears and nose, and also one sheet of white for cutting out the back feet.
- Small black beads
- Hot glue
To make the head, I hot glued the pink inner ear to the white ear. Then I cut out a tiny nose.
Here’s how the head looks assembled. Hot gluing on pom poms is a little different than gluing on solid items. Not too hard, but it might take one bunny to get the hang of it.
For the bunny’s body, you’ll need another pom pom ball, two felt feet, and three tiny pom poms. (In this photo, I had forgotten the pom pom ball for the tail.)
Here’s a photo of the body – upside down so that you can see how I glued on the feet.
Then glue the head to the body. If you glue the head too far forward, the bunny will tip over. So just keep that in mind when gluing!
I put our completed bunnies in a little tray with some green paper grass. Aren’t they adorable?
Have fun crafting!
