  • Top Tip - How to make an Easter bunny
    The size depends on how large you want your bunny For example use a gift card Do not wrap too tightly because you will need to remove the card later 2 Continue to wrap the yarn around the card If you are making a circular shape for the bunny s head and tail you want to keep your yarn close together If you are making an oval shape for the bunny s body you should spread the yarn out so the bundle s width is a bit larger How many times you wrap the yarn will depend on the size of your bunny the thickness of your yarn and how fluffy you want it to be in this example the yarn was wrapped approx 150 times 3 Once you are done wrapping the yarn cut yarn and then cut an additional piece that is long enough for you to tie the bundle with Place the bundle on the string and slide the card out of the bundle 4 Now you should have a cocoon shape on top of your string 5 Tie the string around the bundle and make sure it is tight 6 Now insert your scissors in the loops of the bundle and cut them 7 Do this with both sides of the bundle until all the loops are cut 8 Trim all over until the ball is even and oval or circular shaped 9 Now that you know how to make a pom pom all you need to do is make 1 large oval for the bunny s body 1 medium circle for the head and 1 small one for the tail Attach everything with the glue gun 10 Cut the ears eyes and feet out of felt If you want you could also make tiny pom
