Hey y’all! This is a great project that will easily convert from Easter to an everyday spring arrangement! The carrots, eggs, Happy Easter pick and bunny bottom can all be removed once Easter is over.

Let’s make it!
I cut / tore a bunch of strips from Dollar Tree fabrics. We will use these for our pompoms.
You’ll need two “C” shaped cardboard cutouts. Here’s a template if you’d like to use it.
To make the pompoms, 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.
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.
Just fluff and puff it out!
TIP: Make a garland for your home. Use fabrics for the occasion; Valentines, Easter, July 4, Halloween and Christmas!
It’s time for those cute bunny feet! I used two wooden egg shapes from Dollar Tree and simply painted them white, then added little pink toes!
The bunny ears. Y’all. How stinkin’ cute and easy are these? Just shape a pipe cleaner and hot glue some muslin to it. Give it a trimmy-trim, and you have bunny ears!
I hot glued the ears and feet to the poofy pompom. This bunny is so adorable!
The bunny needed a skewer so I could add it to the arrangement. I hot glued a skewer to the back and also tied the twine (from making the pompom) to secure the skewer, then trimmed the twine.
I tried a couple of things with these. My idea was to use these straws to anchor the pompoms in the arrangement, but they needed a bit of help. I ran some floral wire through them and used it to hold the pompoms against the straw.
I also made some leaves with twisted paper ribbon, but I wasn’t too thrilled with them, so on to making the floral arrangement!
I stuffed some floral foam into the pail and added moss to the top.
And then began adding my floral pompoms and greenery.
Once the flowers and bunny were arranged, I wanted to add something, so I made my own picks. The “Happy Easter”, some carrots and a blue egg was just what it needed!
This is a craft you can enjoy every day! Just remove the Easter picks, and you’ll have a beautiful spring arrangement that will last!
I hope you enjoyed this craft. Let me know in the comments if you’ve ever made fabric pompoms, and how you used them!
