Looking for an easy Easter craft or something for the Easter Bonnet Parade? This cute bunny ear hat is made out of a single paper plate and I’ll show you how easy it is to make.
- Dinner sized paper plate
- Pink marker
Flip the plate upside-down and use the template to mark out the ears on the bottom of the plate. Print off the bunny ear template; lay it over the plate, making sure the tips of the ears are within the inner circumference of the plate. Then trace over the lines firmly with a ballpoint pen, finishing the base of the ears at the inner rim of the plate. This should leave a debossed imprint to use as a cutting guide. If preferred, use tracing paper or draw your own ear design directly on the plate.
Starting at the outer edge of the right ear, cut around the inner circumference of the plate, stopping when you get to the outer edge of the left ear.
Cut around the ear points, ensuring the base of the ears stay connected to the rim of the plate.
Colour the inside portion of the ears in pink and carefully bend the bunny ears upright.
If you want the hat to be a snug fit for a particular child’s head, make a cut at the back of the hatband and reposition the edges together to fit around the head. Tape to secure.
