How adorable are these little pom pom Easter bunnies – we just love them!
Spring is fast approaching and Easter is not far behind it! These adorable little pom pom bunnies are one of my favorite crafts to make. I’ve slightly adjusted our normal design to make it easier for the kids and to suit the materials in their craft room but we think they are adorable. Ideally you want a glue gun to ensure the features are well stuck so this craft is perfect for children to make with a grownup. These adorable bunnies are so simple to craft and make a fab handmade Easter gift.
Here’s what we used
Pom pom makers (optional)
Small pom poms
Glue gun (White glue does work but takes longer to dry!)
How to make these adorable pom pom Easter bunnies
To start you will need to make a pom pom for the body and a slightly smaller pom pom for the head, ensure you leave the tail from your tying yarn long. If you haven’t made pom poms before you can find a guide here for how to make pom poms using a maker and a guide on how to make pom poms using only fingers!
Once made, Take your two pom poms and tie them tightly together using the lengths of your tying yarn. We like to double knot ours two times just to make sure they’re secure. Now take the scissors and trim the pom poms to the desired shape and fluffiness!
From the felt cut out two little bunny ears and then glue them in place deep inside the pom pom.
Glue on two little eyes and a nose.
Tip: for our bunny’s eyes we snipped open some googly eyes and used the black discs from inside!
Add a little pom pom tail to the back and once dry your little Easter bunny is finished!
My little boy loves threading toys and activities so today we decided to get out some beads and pipe cleaners as a busy activity. It was Ted’s idea that we could make a key ring for mummy’s bag and after a bit off messing around we came up with these adorable bead bunny bag charms. It took us a couple of tries to get them secure so that the beads couldn’t come off but once we figured out how to wrap them tightly we ended up making one for him to gift to half of our family – when we can visit them again!
You will need
Ribbon or string
Take your pony beads and thread them on to your pipe cleaner until it’s about 1/3 full.
Pull your two ends of pipe cleaner round so that your beads form a circle. Then twists the two ends together where they meet.
Now to make the ears! Start first with one side, thread the pony beads on until you have about 1cm of pipe cleaner left visible.
Bend your end of pipecleaner down behind your circle..
And twist the end a few times around the point where you previsously twisted your two pipe cleaners together. Make sure it is pulled as tight and secure as possible so that they cannot be pulled apart easily.
Repeat this process on the other side to make a second ear and finish your bunny shape!
To hang your charm, thread a piece of ribbon or string through the outer bead at the bottom of each ear
Then tie your cute little charms on to your bag zip and you are finished! Don’t they look sweet!
Earlier on we made some adorable kawaii bunny cards to celebrate Easter. I absolutely loved them so my son and I decided to adapt them to make this cute kawaii bunny craft to frame and hang in his sister’s bedroom (which we are in the process of decorating). They look adorable and the fact that her big brother helped make them makes them all the more cute! why not make some to decorate with or gift?
You will need:
To start you will need to take your white card and cut out your bunny shape. The easiest way to make your bunny is to draw an egg shape for the face, then add on two elongated ears. Don’t worry about messy lines as you can use this as the back of your bunny! (Once my scanner is up and running I will upload a template to make this step even easier – watch this space!)
Once you have cut out your bunny face shape, mount it on to your chosen colour backing paper/card. Then cut out and stick down two coloured ovals to make the inner ears.
Now to make your eyes. The eyes shown above are the easiest to make. To make the big cute open one, cut out a black circle then add a white circle and then another slightly smaller white circle to make the light spots. To make the happy squinting eyes, cut out three rounded strips and glue them into a triangular shape as above.
Glue down your eyes and then from your black paper, cut out a number 3 shape to make the mouth.
Cut out two pink ovals to make the rosy cheeks and then optionally cut out an hourglass shape and a circle to make a bow. Glue down your pieces and your super cute kawaii bunny craft is finished! Don’t they look adorable?
With Easter right around the corner we’ve been loving all the adorable spring animal crafts and products that are about at the moment and We decided to make our own Easter cards. After a bit of experimenting we came up with these super cute kawaii bunny cards. With the current virus situation my son won’t be able to hand them out but we can always send a picture to his friends! Besides, we can stash them in the cupboard as back up birthday cards for the next time I forget to pick one up (it happens more than i’d like to admit!).
You will need
Start off by taking an A4 piece of card and fold it in half. Draw the shape of your bunny head on to your card by drawing an egg shape with two elongated ears (you’ll need a flat section at the bottom so that your card can stand up). Remember to leave part of your fold line intact otherwise instead of one card you will have two separate bunny faces! Now cut out your card.
Once you have your bunny card cut out, cut out and glue down two coloured ovals to make the rabbit’s inner ears.
Now to make the eyes! There are two examples in the picture above. If you want to make the happy squinting eyes, cut out three rounded strips of black card and stick them into a triangular shape as above. For the big open eyes, cut out a black circle then add a white circle and a smaller white circle to make the light spots. Make two eyes and glue them down on your bunny.
Cut out a black number 3 shaped piece and glue it down to make the mouth.
finish off by adding two pink ovals to make some rosy cheeks. Optionally, add a bow by cutting out an hourglass shape and a different coloured circle, glue the two pieces together and stick them at the base of your bunny’s ear.
