**** BUNNY EARS****

Are you ladies partying like it's 1999? I have been doing some serious blog hoppin today in between posts and I'm here to tell ya, I have met some awesome mama's, mamapreneur's, grand mama's and mama's in training! There truly are some great blogs out there and I am so glad that I have found them!!

Okay, enough chit-chat, lets get back to the party! Grab your glass of wine, fruit punch (back in the day I think it was called HUNCH PUNCH---another story all together) diet coke, or what ever your choice of party drink may be, put on some dancing music and shake your booty! Or..... at least check out this adorable Easter craft project....

*****Turn your little one into an Easter bunny with these cute felt ears****

Tools and Materials

Child size headband
8 by 16 inch piece of pink felt
6 by 6 inch piece of white felt
scissors or scalloped or pinking shears
hot glue gun
hot glue sticks

1) Measure the width and length of the top of the headband, add 1/2 inch to all sides, and cut a strip of pink felt to cover.

2) Glue the felt strip onto the top of the headband, wrapping the extra material around the headband's edges.

3) Measure the underside of the headband, and cut a strip of pink felt to fit.

4) Glue the strip to the underside, creating a backing that covers the edges of the top of felt.


1) Draw a "bunny ear" shape as outer ear freehand or trace on that you have a picture of (really just a pointy oval shape)and cut the shapes out

2)Draw a slightly smaller "bunny ear" as inner ear and cut out (2)

3)Trace the outer ear shape onto the pink felt twice, and cut along scalloped edge (will be scalloped if you use scalloped scissors)

4) Trace the inner ear shape onto the white felt twice, and cut out with regular scissors (see picture).

5) Glue each pair of ears together with hot glue, and let dry.

6) Crease each ear vertically down the middle, and press.

7) Fold up the bottom flaps on either side of the notch, and attach to headband with hot glue, pulling notches close so ears are slightly bent. Hold until glue sets.

There you have it! The cutest little set of bunny ears for your own little bunny!

  1. Hi Erin! It is so funny that I have run across so many bloggers this week named Erin, after a lifetime of having to spell my name (and explain that, NO, I do not have a boy's name, and it is not spelled Aaron)! It's so nice to meet you. You have some beautiful items in your store! Have fun partying this week!

  2. This looks like so much fun! I am going to try and make it with my kids :O) thanks for the ideas
