Pompom Easter Bunny – How to Make Your Own Cute Bunny | Tutorial




Crafting a cuddly Easter bunny out of wool is not difficult at all. As a small cuddly toy, Easter gift or Easter table decoration, a pompom Easter bunny are a lovely DIY idea.

Homemade Easter decorations are the most beautiful and even if you want to give someone a present, it is the most personal gesture to present a gift that you have made yourself. Besides Easter eggs, the most popular Easter motif is of course the Easter bunny. And you can easily make a cute Easter bunny out of wool, felt and beads.

The secret is to make pompoms. This is the name given to fluffy balls of wool with fringes in all directions, such as the pom-poms that hang from many hats. You can easily make a pompom Easter bunny out of these!

This Is What You Need to Make a Pompom Easter Bunny

Making Pompoms for the Easter Bunnies

A pompom Easter bunny is easy to make yourself.

Winding the wool onto the pompom maker

The main work is to make 3 pompoms of different sizes. The biggest pompom will be the body, a medium one the head and a small one the fluffy tail of the pompom Easter bunny.

For this purpose, we recommend you to buy a ready-made Pompon Maker Set made of plastic, because this way you save yourself from making matching templates out of cardboard and it is also easier to work with them. A set of 4 pompom makers in different sizes costs only about 8 euros on amazon.
(However, if you feel like cutting out the pompom discs from cardboard yourself, you can find here a good tutorial on how to do it).

Making pompoms is basically about winding wool onto two half circles. You should work neatly and always wind evenly from left to right and again from right to left until the hole in the middle has almost closed so that the pompom becomes even.

Then you can close the two sides of the pompom maker and hook them together. And now the most tedious part of making the big pompom begins: cutting the wool threads with scissors. You need patience for this, the thinner the thread and the bigger the pompom, the slower the progress. You really need a good pair of scissors!

When making a pompom, the most tiring part is cutting it open

Tying the Pompoms Together

Now all you have to do is tie a piece of wool thread about 20 cm long along the template around the pompom and knot it tightly. To be on the safe side, we did this twice, with the knots on opposite sides. Make the knots a little longer, as you will need them later.

Then take off the pompom templates. Now you can trim the pompoms evenly with scissors or bring them to the desired sizes. Leave the knotted strings longer and use them to knot the pompoms together. For example, you press the head pompom against the body pompom and tie the knotted cord of the former around the latter and knot it there. When you have knotted your bunny in this way, you can trim the overhanging threads.

Making Face and Ears of the Pompom Easter Bunny

For pompom Easter bunnies, it's best to cut out the ears from felt

Now you are almost done, only the ears and the face of your Easter bunny are missing. For the eyes, glue two black beads to the left and right of the head. The best way to do this is with a hot glue gun.

For the nose, cut a small triangle with rounded corners out of pink felt and draw the bunny’s nose on it in pencil. Then glue this nose on as well. Cut 6 pieces of nylon string in the desired whisker length and glue them to the nose.

Glue on the ears

Cut the ears out of felt too, but use 2 colours for each ear: one in the same colour as the pompoms, e.g. white, and one pink for the inside of the ear. The inside should be smaller and you glue it to the other larger piece of felt that represents the fur side of the ear. At the bottom end, press the ear firmly together and glue it. Then glue the ears onto your rabbit’s head.

These bunnies are easy to make, with these simple instructions

Finally, you can glue whiskers to the nose of your pompom Easter bunny. We chose nylon string for our white bunny and brown string for the pied bunny.
