How to Make Pom Pom Animals

Easter is well on its way, and we couldn’t resist trying our hands at making some very cute (if we do say so ourselves!) pom pom animals with Kirstie Allsopp’s favourite Clover Pom Pom Maker. Of course, you could always use more traditional pom pom making methods too. Here’s how we made our pom pom animals . . .

Pom Pom Rabbit

You Will Need

How to Make

  1. Start by using two Clover pom pom makers (we used the green and the orange one) to make the body of the rabbit.
  2. Using a knitters needle (this is a needle with a large eye, to allow thicker wool or yarn to pass through it) and some of the wool or yarn, secure both poms together by placing the smaller pom on top of the larger one.
  3. Cut ear shapes out of felt and secure in place with a little glue (make sure to follow the instruction for application on the back of the pack or bottle).
  4. Using a needle and some black thread stitch the beads in place to make the eyes for the rabbit.
  5. To make the rabbits whiskers simply cut an even number of lengths of invisible thread (we cut 6 in total, 3 for each side) and place a small amount of glue on the end and stick in place.
  6. Your rabbit is complete!

Hints and Tips

If you would like to give you rabbit a nose or tail why not add a ready made smaller pom applied with a little glue?

If you would like to make the smaller baby rabbit use the orange an pink Clover Pom pom maker.
