Easter DIY: Bunny Ears

DIY Bunny Ears

Inspired by the famous lace Maison Michel rabbit ears, this is a stylish recreation suited for any fashionista's Easter dress-up. I've chosen lace from an old net curtain for this craft but it would work well with material from something light and flowery too so have a browse in your local charity shop.

YOU WILL NEED

Thin wire

Lace/Material 

Headband

Needle & thread

Scissors

Pliers



STEP ONE

Cut your wire to two equal lengths and bend into your rabbit ear shape. Twist the end of each wire leaving a small length to attach to the headband.

STEP TWO

Lay your wire on your material and cut four rectangular pieces big enough to cover each ear. It's easiest to cut as a rectangle, stitch and then trim around the ear shape after the next step.

STEP THREE

Sandwich your rabbit ear between the two pieces of material and stitch round the wire shape. Put your needle in, under the wire and out again then loop back in over the wire frame and repeat. For a more flexible finished shape simply running stitch around the shape using the wire as a guide.

STEP FOUR

Trim the excess material away from your ear shapes leaving up to half a cm gap from the stitches.



STEP FIVE

Attach ears to the headband by securely wrapping the wire end of your ears around the band. Make sure the ears are centered and evenly space.



STEP SIX

 Using a long strip of your material, wrap this around your headband and stitch securely at each end.

Now you have an egg-stravagent accessory perfect for hopping off on an Easter egg hunt.
