Craft Project: Pom Pom Bunny

Some time ago I was thinking about Easter treats.  I did not want to give out large amounts of candy as I have done in past years.  There are so many cute "treats" that have nothing to do with sugar.  here is one of them.

Needed Supplies:
Pom Pom makers
Felt in two colors
Hot glue and glue tool
Wiggly eyes

Make two pom poms of two different but closely related sizes.
When removing the pom poms from the pom pom tool, there will be several strings  hanging from the pom poms.  Use those strings to tie the pom poms together. 
Make a minimum of two square knots to hold the pom poms together.
To make the ears: from the felt cut 2 pieces of 2 inch by 2 inch squares.
Cut down the middle of each of them so you have 4 1 inch by 2 inch pieces of felt.  One should be sort of the color of the yarn, the other should be pink for the inner ear.
Holding two pieces together cut into sort of bunny ear shapes, then cut off a little bit from each side of the pink inner ear felt.  This will give a little bit the outer ear visible.
With the hot glue tool, apply a little glue to each ear near the base and insert it between the two tied-together pom poms.  Hold briefly until the glue dries.
Holding one wiggly eye with tweezers, apply hot glue to back of eye then place on the front of the smaller pom pom.  Repeat for second eye and place close to the first eye.
Let cool.
Love this frowzy looking bunny!
