I love crafty headwear and Easter is a fab time to celebrate this but this year we didn’t only opt to Craft Make Play the traditional easter bonnet we also created these super duper bunny ears, here is how…..

Materials

  • headband
  • egg box cartons
  • glue (also hot glue gun for that extra fixing!)
  • scissors
  • paint
  • card

How to:

 

Firstly fold your card, holding the A4 card portrait way round world the top edge down to the bottom edge, then cut out your bunny ears, we free cut ours but you could draw the shape out and then cut around take care not to cut the fold…the fold will go around your headband (see image above.

Glue ears together and in place on the headband, we also used some pink paper to add colour to the centre of the ears, you could colour in though if you prefer.

Next cut out the egg carton shapes, these can be roughly cut from the carton and then shape with your scissors into flower shapes, petals and small cup like shapes.

These are your flowers and will next be painted and allowed to dry.

Next is the positioning and gluing of the painted egg box flowers onto the band and to the ears. PVA glue can be used but takes time to fix and dry. If you have a hot glue gun this method is quick…we ent for speed!
