Pom Pom Bunnies
How we did it:
- yarn - chunky
- pom pom winder - 1 large and 1 small
Gather the materials to make your DIY pom-pom bunnies!Tip: If you don't have pom-pom winders, can create your own out of cardboard by cutting two U shapes from cardboard. We created a large one that was 4.5 inches wide and a small one that was 2 inches wide.
Start by creating a small pom-pom for the head and a large pom-pom for the body.
Wrap yarn around the "arms" of your pom pom maker and make sure not to wrap too tightly. The more yarn you use, the thicker and fluffier your bunny will be! For the small pom-pom, we wound the yarn about 15 times. For the large pom-pom, we wound the yarn about 40 times.
Cut a 10-inch piece of yarn and tie it in the center. Tie the yarn so it leaves one long tail. Gently remove the yarn from the pom-pom winder.
In this step, we used a contrasting yarn color to better illustrate what we did. Feel free to mix or match your yarn as you like.
Take scissors and cut the loops to create your pom-pom. We also trimmed the yarn to create a nice rounded pom-pom shape. Make sure not to cut the long tail on the pom-pom.
Repeat steps 3-5 with the large pom-pom maker to create the bunny's body.
Take the two pom-poms and tie the long tails together to create the bunny. Trim off any excess yarn.
Decorate your bunny with felt and beads! We made eyes, a nose, and a tail, and glued them on the pom-poms. We even made felt carrots for our new friends! Create more pom-poms to make a fuzzy little bunny family.
