Easter Craft – Sleepy Pom Pom Bunnies

These soft and fluffy little bunnies are getting plenty of rest before their big Easter egg hunt.

I’m a bit excited that I got to combine my love of pom poms and my love of bunnies in this adorable craft project.

Here is a free printable template to make cutting out the eyes, ears, whiskers and nose easier, so really all you need is minimal supplies and some willing crafty hands.

How to make Pom Pom Bunnies

Craft and images by Elise Clarkson from Wild Mountain Child  for Families Magazine – Gold Coast

You will need;

  • Black felt
  • Pink felt
  • White felt
  • Brown felt
  • Fluffy yarn in different tones
  • Pom Pom maker in large, medium and small
  • Glue Gun
  • Scissors


Step 1: Select the yarn colour for your bunny. I used the same colour for the head and body and white yarn for the tail.

Step  2: Make a large pom pom for the body and a medium pom pom for the head. When you tie the pom poms off make sure to leave some extra yarn for attaching the pom poms together.


Step 3: Make a small pom pom for a tail. You can make a really small pom pom using a fork. As shown in this video here.

Step 4: Decide whether you want your bunny standing or sitting and attach the tail and head in the desired position.

Step 5: Using the template as a guide and your chosen felt cut out the ears, eyes, nose & whiskers.

Step 6: Using a hot glue gun, glue the inside of the ears to the outside ears. And the nose on top of the whiskers.

Now you’re ready to assemble your sleeping bunny. Decide where you want the ears to go and glue them in place. Now glue the sleepy eyes and nose in place.

Hip Hop Hooray you’re done! Bunny is ready for a nap before heading out on an Easter egg hunt.

The Nitty Gritty

  • The fluffier the yarn, the fluffier the bunny
  • Use scotch tape to stick the template to the felt and cut through it. This will keep your edges sharp.
