Well, yesterday she sent me a picture of her newest crafty creation--an Easter Bunny Pompom Wreath. I thought it was so cute I asked her to share it with y'all today. Generous gal that she is, she agreed. :)
So here it is...
1 - large Plastic Canvas Sheet
1 - pink sheet of felt
1- 6" Wooden Embroidery Hoop (for the head)
1 - 10" Wooden Embroidery Hoop (for the body)
1 - piece of crafting wire (~20 gauge)
Yarn to make pompoms
40 - Extra Small Pompoms (for ears)
Varying Numbers of Small, Medium, and Large Pompoms (for head and body)
Quick tips on Pompoms:
- Extra Small Pompoms can be made using a fork:
- Wrap yarn around the end of the fork prongs multiple times
- Thru the middle gap, tie the yarn together with a small piece of string
- Slide the yarn off the fork
- Cut through the loops making the lengths as evenly as possible
- Fluff the yarn into a pompom
- Small, Med, and Large Pompoms
- Pompom makers sold in craft stores come in very handy or you can look online for various ideas.
- When you tie off the pompoms, leave an extra length to fasten to the frame.
- Cut out 4 (four) rabbit ear shapes from the plastic canvas sheet.
- Cut out 2 rabbit ear shapes from the felt that will leave a 1/4" of canvas showing all around the sides and top. the felt will need to go to the bottom of the canvas.
- Take 1 felt ear and 2 plastic canvas ears. Center and Sew the felt to the canvas. Repeat for second ear.
- Sew the extra small pompoms on the edge of the ears, leaving the bottom edge open.
- Using crafting wire, attach the two embroidery hoops together and attach the ears to the smaller of the two hoops.
- Securely tie the small, medium, and large pompoms to the loops using the extra length.
That's it! Feel free to accessorize with a stuffed carrot, Easter sign, eggs, etc.
