Hide this cute sleepy Easter bunny inside your kids Easter eggs. Shhh, don’t wake him - he needs his strength to deliver those goodies.

by Amanda Formaro

What you'll need

  • ½ egg shell
  • Wooden doll stand
  • 2 large white pom poms
  • 4 medium white pom poms
  • 1 miniature pink pom pom
  • Scrap of black felt
  • White felt
  • Pink and white acrylic paint
  • White craft glue
  • Scissors
  • Thin white ribbon

Helpful Tip:

Pom poms can be purchased in large value packs with different colors and sizes.

Be sure to check the craft stores following each holiday for major clearance priced items.

You could get even more creative and add a sleeping cap to the project by cutting a piece of pastel colored felt and rolling into a cone. Glue it to the top of the head and bend the end downward and glue to bunny’s back.
