My daughter is one, soon to be two and I enjoy making hair accessories for her (even though she doesn’t have much of it). Since Easter is coming up in a few weeks, I’ve started to brainstorm basket filler ideas and thought it would be fun to make some cute bunny ears for her to wear.
The great thing about this project is it comes together quickly, making it the perfect choice for a nap time craft. It is also no-sew, which makes it more accessible to those of you without a machine.
- Glue gun & hot glue stick
- Sewing Pins
- Bunny ear template (freehand is fine using cardstock or tissue paper)
- Headbands (I used simple plastic with a glitter finish from Walmart)
- Flowers (optional and mine were ordered off Etsy, but I’ve seen them at fabric stores too)
1. Make a bunny ear template by making an outline on tissue paper. Then make another template a bit smaller that will fit inside, if you want to use a two tone bunny ear. Cut out both templates.
*My larger bunny ear was 1.5 inches across the bottom 5.5 inches tall.
*The smaller bunny ear was 3/4 of an inch across the bottom and 4.5″ tall.
2. Pin template to felt with sewing pins and cut two of large ear and two of small ear to make one headband.
3. Next, place large ear onto headband and place small amount of hot glue on bottom edge of ear and fold over headband. Hold for a few seconds to allow glue to dry. Repeat on other side.
4. Glue smaller ear piece onto front of ears.
5. Adorn with a flower if you want to. (Use hot glue to attach)
These headbands are seriously adorable and are certainly going to make your little one happy to be playing the part of baby bunny this Spring season.
You can make many of these for all the young girls in your life (or young at heart). They are a wonderful addition to an Easter basket or a cute party favor at Easter dinner.
I hope you liked this project- Thanks for reading! xo
