Spiral-wrap the white chenille stem around 3 inches of one end of the dowel, spot-gluing every inch.
For the bunny's head, glue the 2-inch white pom on top of the chenille stem. To make the cheeks, glue two 1/2-inch white poms side by side toward the bottom of
Trace the teeth from the pattern, and cut them from the white felt; glue just under the cheeks. For the nose, glue the pink pom to the top middle of the cheeks. Use tweezers to glue 2 wiggle eyes above the cheeks.
Using the pattern, trace and cut out 2 white felt ears, 2 pink felt inner ears, and 2 white felt paws. Glue the inner ears to the white ears; glue to the top of the bunny's head. Glue the 1-inch white pom to the bottom left side of the body for the tail. Make toe lines on the bunny's paws with black dimensional paint. Let dry. Glue the paws to the bunny's sides, attaching the points at the neck.
Paint the wood teardrop orange; let dry. Cut the green yarn into three 3-inch lengths. For the carrot top, align the ends of two lengths of green yarn and tie the third length around the middle of them. Fold up all the ends and glue the knotted end to the back top of the carrot. Glue the carrot in the bunny's left paw.
