www.runnerduck.com/images/kc_easter_bunny_pattern.gif for the felt pieces.
Trace them onto your pink, blue and black felt.
Cut out the pieces.
Apply the tacky glue to the Styrofoam cones and put the shirt and blouse on them. The shirt will have the seam in the front and the blouse the seam in the back. Align the tops of the shirt and blouse with the top of the cone.
Put two of the pearl pins on the blouse and three of them on the shirt for buttons.
Use straight pins to hold everything in place while the glue dries.
Tacky glue the blue ribbon flowers on the shirt and the two pink ribbon flowers on the blouse.
Tacky glue the ends of each leg onto the bottom of each cone.
Tacky glue the ends of each arm onto the top of each cone. Do not overlap them.
Tacky glue the Styrofoam head on each cone. Use some stick pins to hold it in place while it dries.
Tacky glue the 1/2" pom poms on the feet and the 1/4" pom poms on the hands, tail and cheeks.
Tacky glue the pink 1/4" pom poms for the nose.
Tacky glue the pink inner ear felt onto the white ears. Align them about 1/8" from the top and sides.
Tacky glue the ear bottoms onto the Styrofoam ball. Pin them until dry.
Cut out two white eyes and black pupils for each eye and glue in place.
Tie a blue ribbon around the neck of the boy bunny and a pink ribbon around the girl bunny.
Cut out a couple of tiny pink bows for the girl bunnies' shoes and glue in place.
Set these bunnies on a shelf or hearth. They also look really nice setting in the basket you made last week. You didn't make a basket last week? It's not to late, you can get plans for the basket by clicking HERE.
