How To Make Pom Pom Bunnies

Hey everyone! It’s Megan from Homemade Ginger and I’m back to share another craft that’s perfect for spring. These little bunnies are super soft and so fun to make!

I discovered pom pom making this year when I was in the process of wrapping Christmas gifts. I was addicted to making them in all sizes and colors of yarn to top my gifts. When I saw these pom pom bunnies on Pinterest, I was ecstatic to realize that my pom pom making did not have to stop with the holidays!

For some reason, animal crafts always inspire me for spring. I recently made some animal confetti globes (like snow globes for spring!) If you were really creative, you could probably come up with a variety of different animals to turn these pom poms into. You could also experiment with different colors and sizes! Although, I think these simple gray bunnies are just perfect for Easter!

These pom pom bunnies are SO CUTE! Use chunky yarn and they end up being so soft and snuggly! Such an awesome spring or Easter craft to make with the kids!

I will be the first to admit that this project is not the quickest craft you will ever make. Trimming the pom poms to get them just right can be addictive and a little time consuming, but it’s such a fun project to do while watching your favorite show on Nextflix. My older girls also love giving the poms a “haircut” and putting together these bunnies, so it’s a great one for kids too!

How To  Make Pom Pom Bunnies

The full printable instructions are at the end of the post, but here’s what you’ll need:

  • Yarn (I found that thicker, softer yarn works best)
  • Felt
  • Pony Beads
  • Clear Thread
  • Hot Glue
  • Cotton Balls
  • Scissors

    The first thing you need to do is create your pom poms. Like I said earlier, you can make these in any size. I know there are tools out there to create the perfect pom poms, but I just used my hands! For a smaller pom pom, begin wrapping yarn around two fingers.

    Just keep going and going until you have a thick amount of yarn. I probably wrapped it about 60 times.

    Carefully slip the looped yarn off your fingers and cut a separate 5 inch piece of yarn.

    Slip it underneath the looped yarn and wrap it around to the front, tying it REALLY TIGHT.

    Now, slip your scissors through the loops and cut.
