Bright colors seriously light me up. If I had my way, my home would look akin to a brightly colored candy store. It’s not just the color but the feeling that it evokes. Bright colors create a cheerful and sunny environment that brightens up the space and your mood.
Fun and colorful items shouldn’t be limited to the kiddos. Turn the tables this year and add that brightness to your Easter decor too. When choosing the pompoms to add to your bunny, keep the colors of Peeps and plastic eggs in mind.
I didn’t use any of the red, brown, or black pompoms. It simply brings that brightness and vibrancy down. Instead, stick with pink, purple, blue, green, and orange. I also added some white pompoms to mine but that’s entirely optional. Do what speaks to you.
Pompom Bunny Decor Materials
First, cut any tape on your box and dismantle it so that it is flat.
Next, cut apart your box so that the 2 main sections are separated.
Pull one cardboard piece in front of you and draw your bunny. Start with a large circle on the bottom. Then draw an oval overlapping the top of the circle. Lastly, add your ears to the top.
After drawing the bunny, cut it out of the cardboard.
Then use your bunny cutout as a stencil to trace an identical bunny on the second piece of cardboard.
Again, cut your bunny out of the cardboard.
Cover one cardboard bunny in glue after both bunnies are cut out.
Next, cut a piece of ribbon and place it folded over in the glue at the top of the cardboard bunny between the ears.
Then firmly place your remaining cardboard bunny on top of the one covered in glue.
Attach binder clips around the edges of the sandwiched cardboard bunny to hold them together while they dry.
Allow your glue to dry at least an hour before moving on (24 hours for E6000).
- I let my glue sit overnight to ensure that even the center area was dry before taking off the clips.
After the glue is dry, remove your binder clips.
Open your pompoms and add a line of glue along the bottom edge of your bunny.
- I started by trying to spread the glue around the bunny and attaching the pompoms. That method doesn’t work as well as adding a thick line of glue to press the pompoms into.
Start adding pompoms in a random order to the line of glue. The only rule I followed was that 2 colors were not right next to each other (if possible).
Continue adding lines of glue and pompoms to your cardboard bunny working from the outside to the inside.
After your bunny is covered in pompoms, set a heavy book or similar on top and set aside to dry.
- Again, if you use E6000 allow 24 hours for it to dry completely.
Lastly, glue ribbon around the entire edge of your pompom bunny and allow it to dry completely before displaying.
