Easter is a time filled with cute decorations and crafts for all ages, and perhaps the most iconic part of this Sunday holiday is the big, white, fluffy, Easter Bunny.
Pinterest has many crafts detailing how to make adorable Bunny crafts, including a basic tutorial on how to make an adorable pom-pom bunny.
The materials needed to complete this craft are a ball of white yarn, white felt, pink felt, google eyes, and glue.
The first step in making the bunny is to create the pom-pom head and body out of the yarn. In order to do this, wrap yarn repeatedly around three fingers until it gets very thick. Then slide it off, and tie another, smaller piece of yarn very tightly around the middle of the circular yarn bundle. Cut the yarn tied by the string in the middle of the loop and fluff it out. It will not be even right after it is initially cut, so it may need to be additionally trimmed until it is even. Repeat this process, this time wrapping the yarn around the biggest part of the hand, though be careful not to wrap it too tightly and cut off the circulation.
Glue the small pom-pom and your larger pom-pom together to make the head and body of the bunny.
The next parts of the craft are very simple, as they only involve cut-and-glue methods.
Cut out two ears from the white felt, and cut out the inner ears from the pink. Glue the two pieces of felt together, then stick them to the head of the bunny. Glue your choice of google eyes to the head of the bunny. It’s also an option to cut a small nose out of the pink felt and glue it underneath the eyes.
The class found that this craft was very successful, and that all of the journalism bunnies turned out very cute. It was easy to make them different shapes and sizes by cutting the pom-poms. None of them looked exactly like the bunnies detailed in the tutorial, however, this is what makes them unique.
Every bunny turned out very cute, and they all had their own sense of personality. I can definitely recommend this craft for people of all ages. It would be just as much fun for smaller kids as it would be for teenagers.
