Hope you enjoy!
Please comment, follow, favourite-but most of all I hope you have fun making and playing with your own Easter Rabbit Puppet!
Step 1: You Will Need:
•Glue (I used this 'tacky' glue but PVA is fine!)
•Googly eyes (any size)
•A Pom pom to match your main felt colour
-Purple (or whatever colour you like)
-Thread to match your pom pom and felt colour
-Needle threader (optional but makes things easier)
-Scissors that will cut felt.
•A wooden spoon (optional)
•Also a pencil but i forgot that on the picture :)
For the Basket:
•Scraps of felt in bright colours
•Skin colour, brown, white or any blending in colour
Step 2: #1 Rabbit-make the Basic Finger Puppet!
Now the sewing. Pin the sides together and either put your finger back in or use a wooden spoon and push the end inside. Thread your needle. Start sewing a simple 'blanket' or 'round and round' stitch until you reach the other end then tie off. See the pics for more info.
Sorry about the slightly blurry pics.
Step 3: Add the Detail!
First take your purple felt, and cut out two ear shapes. Then take your white colour felt and cut similar ear shapes, but smaller and cut them out. Then add glue to the ends of the larger ear shapes and press the white ear shapes on top. Leave these to dry for about 2 mins.
Now take two googly eyes and put glue on the backs. Arrange them onto the front of the finger puppet. Now cut a small triangle out of black felt for the nose and glue it on under the eyes. Now cut out a small rectangle out of white felt and draw a line down the middle so it looks like teeth. Now cut out a curvy 'w' shape for the mouth. Arrange them so you can see that it looks like a mouth and glue under the nose.
Next glue on the ears above where you have put the face.
Now cut out two front legs and two back legs and glue them on.
Step 4: #2 the Basket
Next flip the basket back over and you will see that you have made a basket full of eggs, a 'prop' for your bunny!
I hope you enjoyed learning how to make this easter bunny!
