DIY Faux Fur Yarn Bunny

              

It's always fun making crafts for Easter. One of my favorites is creating bunnies for the holiday as seen herehere, and here. Who doesn't love making cute and adorable bunnies this time of year! There are so many different styles you can create, too! And I came up with an easy one you can make using faux fur yarn. How cool does that sound!
And the best part is using items from your stash to help make it.  Here are some of the materials you probably already have in your stash, like styrofoam and plastic eggs. For this craft, you will need one large styrofoam egg for the body. And one plastic egg cut in half for the feet and one round styrofoam ball for the head.  Plus, you will need cardboard to add to the feet for backing and some for the bunny ears and also to make the arms. All of these items are wrapped in faux fur yarn that I got from Hobby Lobby for 30% off $5.99!  Plus, you will need a few incidentals like googly eyes, pom pom and elastic for the nose, a bit of foam sheet for the inserts on the ears and a cool looking handmade bow ribbon tie. And of course my go-to adhesive, Fabri-Tac fabric glue and a hot glue gun to secure the bunny body together!

Here's how I made this adorable faux fur yarn bunny:  Begin by cutting the plastic egg in half for the feet, adding fabric glue to the edge .  .  .

to place on cardboard for the backing and let dry. Once dry, cut out.
Then add Fabri-Tac glue to the tips (front and back) and .  .  .
begin wrapping the faux fur around one foot until reaching the end. Secure with additional glue and cut off excess yarn. Repeat for the second foot.
Next, begin wrapping the egg shaped styrofoam for the body the same way as the feet.
Adding fabric glue as you wrap .  .  .
until reaching the top.
Then hand draw ears and arms on cardboard and cut out .  .  .
Next, add fabric glue to the ear tips and arms .  .  .
and wrap the same way as wrapping the body and feet.
Create a smaller version of the ears for the insert area, cutting out of foam sheet.
Attach all body pieces together using hot glue. Then, add googly eyes .  .  .
whiskers and 

pom pom for nose.
How cute is this! So adorable as an Easter addition to any decor!
