DIY Bendy Bunny Ears Headband Craft

This adorable bendy bunny ears headband makes a great costume accessory! You can use it as part of a Halloween costume (or Purim, in our case), or as a little bit of Easter bunny role play. This is a mom craft, because of the hot glue used and the exactness required for the wiring, however children can help with cutting out the ears too!

I did not want to make a simple pair of ears for our Bugs Bunny inspired costume. I really wanted something with a little more personality. I use wire all the time in my jewelry making, and I love the flexibility and the control it offers. I decided to wire my bunny ears so that: 1. I can make them super-jumbo and they’ll still stand up and 2. they’ll be bendy!

How to make the bendy bunny ears headband craft:

 

Using the headband to help guide you for size, draw the shape of a bunny ear on the gray or white felt. You can make one fancy like this (for Bugs) or use a simple long oval shape if you’re just making a regular bunny.

Attach one end of your wire to the headband, using the shape you just drew as a guide. Leave enough of a margin to allow for a strip of glue.

Continue using your drawn ear as a guide. Bend the wire into the shape of an ear, still allowing for a small margin on the outside for gluing.

Twist the other end of wire around the headband a few times and trim.

Do this for another ear as well. You should now have two crude wire ears.

Cut out the ear, and trace another three in the same shape. When you cut it out, leave a “tail” at the bottom to wrap around the headband. You should have four gray or white felt ears.

Outline the pink inside of the ear, and cut out two of them.

Your felt ear parts are as follows: four gray or white main ears, and two pink ears for the inside that are smaller.

Sandwich the wire between two pieces of felt as pictured.

Start by gluing the pieces of felt together on the inside of the wire.

Then, glue edges of the ears, on the outside of the wire, together.

Fold over the front side of the bottom of the ear, and glue it around the headband.

Repeat it with the second side.

It should be neatly folded around the headband like this:

Repeat it with the second ear. Trim the edges so that they match up and are even.
