How to Make Easter Pom-Pom Bunnies

Easter is just around the corner, so I thought it would be fun to make an easy and quick Easter project.  I have a thing about bunnies.. They are just so adorable.. Last year I made this burlap bunny Penny that came first in the Royal Manx Agricultural Show last year in the soft toy category!  This year I wanted to try making some bunnies from pom poms..


Here is what I did.. I remember making pom poms when I was younger and I always thought its such a fun and easy way to make something cute and it would work perfect for creating some bunnies.

I chose the yarn in two shades – grey and one off white.  You can get gadgets nowadays for creating different size pom poms but I went with the good old fashioned cardboard.  It’s simple and easy and most importantly, you probably have a piece of cardboard at home already!  I cut out two different sized squares – 1 for the body and 1 for the head.


This picture explains step by step how I made the pom poms.


I then glued the pom poms together to create the bunnies.  I cut out some ears out of felt and glued them together.


Then I glued the ears in place and added the eyes, nose and whiskers.  The whiskers I created from some fishing line and glued in place..  Then I added some ribbons to ‘dress’ them up!

And the two bunnies were created – Meet Ronnie and Reina** my two Easter Bunnies.







** Ronnie and Reina – I always give names to my creations and I spend hours searching for the right ones as if they were babies.. well they kind of are my babies.. So my husband came up with the boy’s name – Ronnie (hmmm snooker fan of course named after Ronnie O’Sullivan)  and Reina – my friend came up with it as it is a traditional Manx name and I thought it had a nice ring to it, don’t you?

  4. Adorable but how wide (size) are the pieces and card board. I tried making them and mine look kind of floppy. I guessed 2 1/2 for head and 4” for body and 50 wraps but they don’t look as cute and round as yours. Suggestions? Help please.

    1. Hi Beverlee thank you , I can’t recall now how big the cardboard was but the secret is when you think you have enough yarn wrapped , wrap some more and then more !!! The thicker the yarn the fluffier the Pom Pom .. I made a Pom Pom cushion and honestly I went as thick as I could and the Pom Poms turned out perfect ..

  5. We have the style!! We have a lot of the same decorating ideas now I definitely know that I’m as good as I think I am… Good eye, I see you
