Handmade Styrofoam Bunnies

The bunnies I made...Take A Look:)

Check out the Mr. and Mrs. Bunny I made. They are so cute, well I think so they are made from styrofoam come, and ball, and white, pink, and color of your choice for dress and top felt, small and large white balls, and wiggly eyes, pipe cleaners, of course a good glue gun, and ta-da they were made. I would love to make more of these. I enjoyed it :)I think they will look great sitting on my book shelf in the living room. I will try to tell you the best that I can how I made these. I also have pictures too show too. That way you might be able to make them too....:)

Have ready 4 white pipe cleaners, and laid out 8 white 1 inch balls, and 10 white half inch balls, and 4 3/4 inch white balls, and also 2 half inch pink balls for the bunnies noses. You will also have to have 4 wiggly eyes, and for Mrs.Bunny I added eye lashes with cutting a pair of plastic ones, however the eye lashes really are optional. Also have 2 small bows cut from a long strip of felt in cordinating color to match. Now to begin the part of cutting and laying out the material for the project.

1.cut out white felt for legs measuring 8 and a half inches long and 1 and a half ride make sure to cut them in a oval shape (curve) towards the bottom of leg.

2.cut out white felt arms measuring 4 and a half long by 1 and a half wide make them oval around bottom of arms, like a curve to them.

3.for dress just measure around the cone and make the dress according to the style you want, cut out dress using a felt color of your choice, you can also add curves to bottom of material to make it look fancy. And do the same to the Mr. bunny top measure with a cordinating color felt to match Mrs. Bunny dress.

4.for ears you will cut out white felt measuring 4 and half long by 1 and half wide, you will also cut out pink for center of ears measuring 3 and half long by 1 inch wide. The ears have to be shaped with a similarity of a tear drop I have a picture you can see below. cut out the lil green leaves for Mrs. Bunny dress just cut tiny lil tear pieces of green felt to make the leaves around a half inch to place on the bottom of Mrs. Bunny dress. the glueing and putting together can take place...first glue the styrofoam head and cone base together push so that the cone and base are pushed tightly together. form a tear dropped shape with the pipe cleaner to glue on white material too, the material should hang over the pipe cleaner, picture will be better to look at on this step. Then take the pink piece of material and attach to center of whites of ears. The pipe cleaner should be twisted at end and excess left over, and push down in the styrofoam that will make the ears stand up, next attach the dress to Mrs. Bunny glue into place around cone, and add the 3 half inch balls to top of dress and also add leaves around bottom of dress and place 4 more half inch balls in center of the leaves around dress( look at picture). Then procede to glue the arms and legs on, legs should dangle. Place a 1 inch ball at bottom of legs and bottom of arms. Add your eyes, eyelashes optional, and half inch pink ball for nose, and then take a 3/4 ball and place and glue on cheeks. Add the felt you cut into 2 long srtips and made into bows to bottom of Mrs. Bunny ears.
To begin Mr. Bunny follow same steps only thing that will be different is the top just make to fit around cone, and add 3 half inch white balls to top. I did add whiskers by his nose, I used 4 small pices I cut off from a broom. follow all steps to making Mrs. Bunny, I did make Mr. Bunny arm with it on his hip, I just used a pin and placed it there and stuck in styrofoam. I know the pictures will hlep better, I do hope you like it, It really is not complicated, its just a hard project to explain. I did try to explain the best I could.

As always thanks for stopping by please send friends. I need followers :)
