We’re in serious bunny mode around here this week. Preparations are in full swing for Operation Egg Hunt, where we invited 50 or so folks over to our house for an easter egg hunt and brunch.
One of the crafts I worked on today for the party turned out perfectly: Bunny Tails (whee!!!).
If you’d like to make a horde of them for your egg hunt (or anything else bunny-related), here’s what to do. For 20 tails, grab two bags of super jumbo cotton balls:
Cut twenty pieces of twine that are each 40” long (these are kid-sized). Tip, put your twine inside of a roll of tape while you’re measuring and cutting the twine, then it won’t roll off the table every time you tug at it.:
Tie a knot in the center of each piece of twine:
Hot glue two cotton balls together:
Put a blob of glue in the middle and lay your knot right down in that glue:
Glue on three more cottonballs (so you use five total), then twirl it around and do a quality check. Because god forbid you have loose fluff. Heh. If you see any big gaps, add a dot of glue and press the wayward cotton balls together:
There you have it, a bunny tail ready to be tied on!:
I can’t stop grinning at our big basket o’ tails:
And I know these will be a big hit at the egg hunt. Ro and Ree have already hop-tested them and pronounced them “puhflect!”:
