DIY Wire Bunny Ears

DIY Wire Bunny Ears

I made these cute bunny ears as quick favors for my daughter’s bunny-themed birthday party. We had such a good time wearing our bunny ears and hopping around the yard! And of course we’re keeping our ears around to re-use for our Easter egg hunt as well.

Ages:
5 - 8
Est. Time:
<30 mins

How we did it:

Materials List

  1. white pipe cleaners
  2. grosgrain ribbon
  3. glue gun and sticks
  1. Gather your materials.

  2. For each ear, twist 2 white pipe cleaners together, then fold in half at the twist to create an ear shape. You’ll need two of these per headband.

  3. To attach the ears, gently twist the open pipecleaner ends about 1" up and then wrap it around the headband.

  4. The size of your headband will determine how long of a piece of grosgrain ribbon you’ll need to use. Hold off on trimming the ribbon down until you’ve finished wrapping the headband. Using a hot glue gun, adhere one end of the ribbon to the bottom end of the headband. Begin wrapping the ribbon up and around the band, making sure to cover where the pipe cleaners are attached.

  5. When the ribbon wrap has reached the other side of the headband, trim your ribbon. Use a last dab of hot glue to seal the end.

  6. Your ears are ready to wear!
