Hippity hoppity, Easter’s on it’s way! Time to bust out the pastels, baskets, bunnies, and (most importantly) the Cadbury mini eggs. It’s also the perfect time to craft and create some festive Easter table decor. These Tissue pom bunnies and the perfect addition to any spring bunny-themed tablescape …plus they’re incredibly simple to make.
- 6″-8″ Tissue poms in white and pastels
- A few sheets of card stock in white and pink
- glue gun
- glue stick
First, eat a handful of Cadbury mini eggs. Once you’re chewing, you’ll need to assemble your tissue poms. Start by removing the included ribbon, then finding the center of the folded tissue and re-tying the ribbon in that spot. Next, separate the layers, pulling away from center one at a time. When all layers have been separated, look over the pom to see that it is fluffed out evenly on all sides.

Once the pom is all fluffed out, you’ll need to add the bunny ears. The ear are made from card stock. Cut out the two ear shapes and two inner ear shapes. I used a glue stick to attach these together. Then, find a good spot (between two layers) to attach the ears to the pom. Once you find a good spot, hot glue the ears in.
Once you’ve created a few tissue paper pom bunnies, find ways to display them around your space. I am a fan of a group of them as a table centerpiece. They also look incredibly cute on a fireplace, or hung above an Easter snack table. Happy crafting!
