  • Step 1. Cut out the grass template

    Start this project by cutting out the grass panel from the template.
  • Step 2. Trace the grass and cut

    With a marker, trace the grass onto your light and dark green felt. You’ll need 6 pieces in total. Then use your scissors to cut out the panels.
  • Step 3. Attach the grass

    With the hot glue gun, stick the grass panels to the base of the hat. You can mix up the colours and stagger the panels for a great look.
  • Step 4. Paint the Styrofoam ball

    Next, paint the Styrofoam ball your favourite colour. We choose grey for ours.
  • Step 5. Create your bunny feet

    Cut the foot template out with your scissors. Trace it onto the grey felt twice and then cut them out. Then you can stick a large pompom to each foot with the hot glue gun and 3 small ones for the toes.
  • Step 6. Attach the bunny to the hat

    Now you can stick the bunny ball to the top of the hat with the hot glue gun.
  • Step 7. Attach the feet and tail

    Stick both feet to the grey ball so they hang over the grass. The bunny should look like it is diving into the grass. You can also stick a pompom to the back for the tail.
  • Step 8. Decorate the bonnet

    Now it’s time to get creative and decorate the bonnet. You can make flowers out of pipe cleaners and add some colour to brighten it up.
