DIY Pom Pom Bunnies

Hey lovely peeps! I hope you are enjoying these friends DIY posts as much as I'm enjoying sharing them with you! Lots of you have been saying you have been discovering some 'new to you' blogs through them and that makes me so happy. There are so many blogs I absolutely love and it's a great honour to get to feature them on my site. Today I am introducing to you the lovely Sarah~Lou from Lapin Blu. Over to you Sarah!


Well hello Tigerlilly Quinn lovelies! I’m Sarah~Lou, and you can usually find me escaping to the.bolt\\hole where I blog homestyle, handmade, family, adventures & lifestyle… 
I’m really excited to share this playful little project with you today, just in time for Easter (although, I think they’re rather fab anytime myself!) You will need…


To find out how to make the pom pom bunnies click below!

\\ yarn
\\ pompom maker (make your own, buy one, or hop by here for a chance to win a clover pompom maker set :0) 
\\ scissors
\\ thick paper
\\ printer
\\ paints & brushes/pens/pencils
\\ a pin
\\ craft glue
\\ cotton thread
Step 1 \\ Make a pompom (with a pompom maker)…
1// open out the first half moon sections & wrap the yarn around repeatedly until full as shown in image no.2 
2// fold half moon section closed and repeat on the second side
3// cut the yarn through the centre using the valley in the half moon sections as a guide
4// tie a length of yarn around the centre (you should feel it pop when it’s pulled tight into place at the bottom. make sure to tie it nice & tight in a double knot at the top)
5// open out your two half moons and pull apart the pompom maker from the centre
6// shake out your pompom & trim any straggly ends

Step 2 \\ Add the rabbit sections (using printable above)…
1\\ print the rabbits onto a thick piece of card or paper (as thick as your printer will take ~ I use watercolour paper sheets), then paint, colour & customise to your hearts content
2\\ cut out each rabbity piece
3\\ make a pin hole in the top rabbit piece (this is for you hanging cotton, which you can thread now or later)
4\\ find the centre of your pompom and flatten down to open up
5\\ add glue to the bottom of your top rabbity piece on both sides
6\\ wiggle her into the centre of your pompom and give her squeeze so the yarn sticks to the glue front & back. repeat steps 4~6 for the legs


If you haven’t already, thread cotton through the pin hole you made, and voila! 
Hang your bunnies in twiggy trees or anywhere else you want to add a little playful easter style (my little Bear seems to have acquired most of these so far!)


Thanks for having me x
