Looking for a super cute, easy and cheap craft? If you exhausted the numerous snow activities available over the winter, celebrate spring by making floral bunny ears! It took me no time at all. This would be a great activity to kick off the new season with your kiddos. The materials were purchased at the dollar store, so I can estimate the entire project was definitely under $5. Does it get any better than that?
What you'll need:
Hot glue gun
Set aside 3 pipe cleaners. Take one and curve it into a bunny ear shape. Repeat the shape with a second pipe cleaner. Then leaving a bit at the bottoms of the ends, twist once to secure.
With the third pipe cleaner, curve it like a headband, and then secure the ears to it by putting the headband in between the ends and twisting a few times.
Now take the artificial flowers and pop off the top buds. Use the wire cutters to snip the extra piece in the back if it has one. You can determine the types of flowers and how many to use.
Next hot glue the flowers to the pipe cleaner headband. It might be best to put a dab of glue in the front, place the flower, and add a dab to the back as well for extra support. Keep arranging and gluing until you have the desired look.
If you want better stability (especially for energetic little bunnies), I would suggest snatching up at the dollar store a cheap plain headband instead of the pipe cleaner. I want to make more with different florals next time! This would be the perfect craft for a girly-themed spring birthday bash, or on Easter morning for those adorable family pictures. I'd love to see this with smaller wildflowers and white pipe cleaners. Oh, the sweet possibilities!
