How to make an easy Easter bunny bag:
- Use the free printable bunny template to cut a bunny shape out of your wrapping paper or coloured card
- Make a mini yarn pompom using a fork (if you’ve never done this before, it’s super-simple and fast – find out how here) – don’t trim the loose pieces of yarn that you use to tie your pompom (this will make the next step easier)
- Tie the pompom tail on to your Easter bunny (or poke a couple of holes with a yarn needle and thread the loose ends through, then tie together)

- Line the bag with tissue paper and fill with goodies!
