steps

  1. For the blushing cheeks: Wrap pink yarn around each half circle of the pom-pom maker. Hook each half together and cut the yarn around the center outer edge. Wrap a length of pink yarn around the center of the pom pom and tightly knot together. Remove the plastic pom-pom maker and trim off any excess. Cut four whiskers from black pipe cleaners and glue two to one side of each pom-pom as shown.

  2. For the pom-pom cheek face: Cut two crescent moon eyes from black felt. Cut two short lengths of black pipe cleaner and curve the ends into a "J" shape. Glue together back to back with a small yellow pom-pom at the top for the nose.

  3. For the winking face: Cut two crescent moon eyes from black felt. Cut two short lengths of black pipe cleaner and curve the ends into a "J" shape. Glue together back to back with a small yellow pom-pom at the top for the nose. Next, fold two black pipe cleaners in half into "V" shapes for the whiskers, and glue to the back of a large white pom-pom. Cut two short lengths of black pipe cleaner and curve the ends into a "J" shape for the mouth. Glue to the base of the white pom-pom nose.

  4. For the eyeglasses face: Cut black eyeglasses and two smaller oval eyes from black felt. Cut a white muzzle and two front teeth from white felt. Glue the teeth to the back of the muzzle. Cut and glue two J-shaped black pipe cleaners for the mouth on the muzzle, and glue a large pink pom-pom nose at the top.

  5. Assembly: Attach bunny faces to clothing using double-sided fabric tape.
