Turn the smaller plain ivy bowl upside down and place inside of the top of the crimp top ivy bowl. The smaller bowl is the bunny’s head. Cut 2 pieces of white chenille stem 3.5” long.

Place bunny ears on top of the head and glue in place. Shape ears as desired.

Glue 2 of the 1.5” pom poms to the lower half of the head for the muzzle. Cut the white chenille stems into 2  6” lengths and one 4” length. Arrange and twist together in the middle for the whiskers. Glue the whiskers to the center top of the muzzle. Glue the ¾” pink pom pom on top of the whiskers for the nose. Glue the 2 moving eyes above the muzzle.
