Easiest Bunny Ears Ever

Since I've begun working on Imagicon costumes, I'll be posting quite a few tutorials as I go. Here's the first one. It's super easy, really, nothing to it at all. These bunny ears are meant for my White Rabbit from Alice In Wonderland.

Easiest Bunny Ears Ever:

What you'll need:

Fabric Scissors

Hot Glue


A Large Bunny

Poor Little Guy. Has no idea what's in store for him...
**Tip for picking a bunny: Make sure his ears are big enough to look good on your head. Also, it really helps if there is wire inside the ears, so you can actually stand the ears up if you want. If you want to make floppy bunny ears, then a wire isn't really necessary.**

Step 1: Attack Your Bunny

Chop off the top of the little guy's scalp. I know, I know, it's tough because he's so cute. But sometimes sacrifices have to be made in the name of good costume making...

Step 2: Glue them to your headband.

Use the hot glue gun to secure the ears to the headband. Make sure you hold them until they dry, otherwise you will just frustrate yourself because if your bunny is as huge as mine, those ears will be heavy and will fall off if the glue isn't dry all the way.


Step 3: Try them on for final adjustments

I decided it was cutest with one ear sort of flopping over, but you can adjust them however you want :) At this point, you are done!
