Paper Bunny Ears, a tutorial...
By buzzmills on March 27, 2013
As I mentioned yesterday, I helped to organize our neighborhood Easter Egg Hunt that was held last weekend.
And, what would an Easter Egg Hunt be without a bunch of bunny ears? I made about 35 pairs of these little bunny ears in about an hour (with breaks in between steps to take care of a sick kiddo). Well, I must say that I was stapling the elastic while I was at the egg hunt, so I suppose it took more like an hour and a half all tolled...But, still, it's a fun and simple project, with adorable results!
Here's what you need: cardstock, origami paper (or other colorful paper), stapler, glue, scissors, elastic (or ribbon), and the Paper Bunny Ears template
Print out Paper bunny ears template. Trace onto cardstock. Cut out. Cut inner part of the ear from origami paper and glue. Cut approximately nine inches of elastic (this size worked pretty well for most kids and adults, but I did change sizes some for the smaller heads). I used foldover elastic which I got from a fab Pick your Plum sale a while back. The foldover elastic made the ears nice and soft and comfy to wear, but any elastic would work. You could also use ribbon and tie in the back. Staple elastic onto bunny ears. And there, you've got some super cute little bunny ears...
Perfect for bunny hopping, treat eating and egg hunting...
Have a lovely day.
