Easter is fast becoming my favorite holiday for crafting with my 8yo daughter Molly. Inspired by the bright spring light, fresh colors and all out cuteness of Easter bunny craft season there’s a little more ‘pep in our daily step’.
We give you…. The Rummaging Bunny! a cute pom pom bunny table centerpiece, caught in the act of leaving the chocolate treats. An excellent way to make the kids Easter table even more special and sweet.
Materials you need to make
– soft white wool
– pom pom makers, large and small (store-bought or cardboard circles)
– white and pink felt
– fabric glue
– green paper for the grass clippings
– small flowerpot, box, basket or whatever you have at hand for bunny to be rummaging around in
Make one large and one small pom pom, leave the center binding yarn long on the smaller pom pom so you can use it to bind both pom poms together.
Cut the little paws out of felt.
Cut two pieces for each paw and glue them together for thickness, you will want them to stay flat and not flop! Then glue little pink pieces onto the felt to finish the paw paws.
Glue the feet to the bunny and that’s the bunny done, ready for rummaging.
Now for the prop – just cut some green paper into thin strips to make the grass (my old school shredder!)
Glue the grass into the inside of your flowerpot and scrunch up a piece of brown paper for the mud filling.
Then just glue your little bunny bum into position and voila your centerpiece is ready xx
You can add ears if you like but he will look just as cute without.
Happy Making, Happy Easter
