Floral Bunny Ears

Looking for a fun and easy craft to make with your little ones this Easter? Why not try making a Floral Bunny Ear headband, using the free downloadable template.

To make our bunny ears, you will need the following craft supplies:

Supplies

  • Floral Bunny Ears template
  • Paper/ watercolour paper / card
  • Watercolour paints / pencils / felt tip pens
  • Scissors
  • Ribbon / wool / string
  • Glue stick

To make your bunny ears, download the Floral Bunny Ears template. You have the choice of making the bunny ears from colour paper or using white paper and colouring in the template. We will go through the colour-in version first.

Colour-in Bunny Ears

Step 1

To start your bunny ears, download the template and print onto white paper or card. A stronger card will keep its shape without reinforcement. If you only have paper that’s okay, attach some popsicle sticks to the back of the ears to help them stand up. We decided to paint our ears with watercolour paint, so I printed our template on watercolour paper.

Step 2

Colour in your template with pencils, crayons, felt-tip pens or some watercolour or poster paints. Don’t worry if you go out the lines, these bits will be removed when we cut the template out.

Step 3

Using scissors cut out the bunny ears, flowers and leaves.

Step 4

Give your flowers a 3D effect by folding the petals in towards the center.

Step 5

Arrange your flowers and leaves on the band of the bunny ears and glue in place.

Step 6

Punch holes in both ends of the bunny ears band.

Step 7

Thread 1 piece of ribbon, wool or string, through each of the holes and tie a knot to secure in place. For a special touch I added some extra flowers to the ends of the ribbons, by cutting a small slit in the centre of the flowers and threading them onto the ribbon. A small knot helps secure them in place.

Colour Paper Bunny Ears

Step 1

To make your bunny ears using colour paper, download the template and print on white paper. You could also print a second copy on the colour paper you would like your ears to be.

Step 2

Cut out your ears and 1 of each size flower and leaf.

Step 3

Place your ear template on top of your colour paper or card and using a grey lead pencil trace around the template. A stronger card will keep its shape without reinforcement. If you only have paper that’s okay, attach some popsicle sticks to the back of the ears to help them stand up.

Step 4

Using scissors, cut out your bunny ear headband.

Step 5

Cut the centre of your bunny ear out, to use as a template.

Step 6

Trace around your templates and cut out. I find it quicker to stack several layers of paper together and trace around the templates once. I then cut all the layers together using scissors. I cut 3 layers at a time.

Once you have cut out all your pieces, they should look similar to the ones below.

Step 7

Arrange your flowers and leaves on the band of the bunny ears, and glue in place.

Step 8

Thread 1 piece of ribbon, wool or string, through each of the holes and tie a knot to secure in place. For a special touch I added some extra flowers to the ends of the ribbons, by cutting a small slit in the centre of the flowers and threading them onto the ribbon. A small knot helps secure them in place.
