Hey y’all! This adorable bunny was fun and easy to make! I even learned how to make a fabric strip pompom! We named her Blanche because Aunt Criddy loves the Golden Girls and it made me think of her!
Michaels Grab Bag: wood bunny
Target Dolllar Spot: greenery
Debi’s Design Diary DIY Paint: White Swan
Stash: scrapbook paper (for the ears), fabric strips, raffia, wood sewing spools, white floral wire, twine.
AMAZON: Mod Podge , sanding sponge (This is an Amazon affiliate link and I may receive a small compensation for items purchased from this link.)
Let’s get started!
You may use this template to cut two “C” shapes from cardboard. You’ll use them to create your bunny tail.
How stinkin’ cute is this bunny? I have several that were included in Michael’s Grab Bag boxes, so I paid very little for them!
Firat things first: Let’s paint her white!
You can set yours aside to dry, or use a heat tool. I sanded down the edges after the bunny was dry.
I kinda “eyeballed” the scrapbook paper inserts for the ears, gave the first one a trimmy-trim, then cut the second one to match.
I put Mod Podge down, then added my paper to both ears. I decided the color was a bit bold, so I dry brushed some White Swan over them.
Here’s a closeup. I like it!
Now for that pompom tail.
Y’all. My friends helped with this one! You’ll need two of those “C” shaped cutouts.
Place a loop of twine down on the cardboard. Do not glue or tape it! You should have enough twine to tie off when finished. 14-16 inches should be plenty.
Cut or tear your fabric strips.
SANDWICH the twine in between the “C” shapes.
Begin wrapping your fabric strips. Place a length in the hole, then wrap until you run out of your strip. Repeat until all fabric is used.
Pull your twine taut and tie it off. Leave the strands hanging. You’ll cut them off later.
Here’s the fun part! Put your scissors in between the cardboard “C” shapes, against the fabric. Cut along the outer edge. You’ll see the fabric starting to fluff out into a pompom.
Give your pompom a trimmy-trim, and you can now trim off the excess twine.
Fluff it out an enjoy the cuteness!
Now for a bow.
Using a variety of ribbons, greenery and of course, raffia, place the pieces in an X pattern.
Tie them together with twine.
Look at how stinkin’ cute this is!
Let’s make the hanger.
I hot glued two wood sewing spools together, then ran some white floral wire through them.
I curled the wire with a pencil, then hot glued it to the end of each spool to keep it from moving.
I hot glued the wire to the back of the bunny ears, and secured them with craft sticks.
And here we are! I can’t wait to hang her up in my house!
This was such a fun and simple craft! I hope you enjoyed it also. Let me know in the comments below what you might craft for Easter or spring. I read every comment!
Thank you for stopping by,

Erin, I made the pom pom flowers you did a couple weeks ago ( out of fabric). I put them in a bucket with some little silk flowers and a girl bunny and boy bunny I got at Hobby Lobby. I love it! I enjoy your crafts tremendously! Love your interaction with your boys and Aunt Criddy! A faithful follower — Sharron Sloop
