Do you hear what I hear? Hop, hop, Easter is just around the corner! Aren’t these just the most adorable felt ears you ever did see? We loved creating this fun little Easter DIY for kids young and old! Not only are they fun to make, but the kids also love them too! You’ll be sure to keep these headbands for years to come!
Head over to your local craft store to pick up the pieces for this project. (We’ve also linked all the supplies below.) They are perfect for Easter and then to keep around for everyday dressing up and birthday parties too!
Annnnddd if you can’t find the time to make these before Easter, we’ve also linked a couple pre-made ears that are just as adorable. Cute for the little bunny in your life!
You can find Lilly’s spring floral jacket here.
You will need the following supplies to make one set of ears:
2 sheets of 11″ x 9″ light grey felt (any color really)
1 sheet of 11″ x 9″ white felt
24″ of 1/4″ twill tape
6″ of elastic tape (one package)
Small pom poms (we used 4 per set of ears)
The first step to making these cute DIY felt bunny ears is to cut out all of the felt pattern pieces, the tie ribbon, and elastic pieces. Make sure to download the pattern right above the supplies section!
For the ears
1) Place the inside ear (white) on top of the outside ear (grey).
2) Topstitch close to the edge.
3) Fold it in half (right sides together) and stitch a ¼ inch pleat (about ½ inch in length) on the wrong side, starting at the bottom and moving up.
4) Stitch two 1/8 inch pleats on the back outside ear.
5) Stitch front and back together, right sides facing each other. (1/8 inch seam)
6) Trim. Turn right side out. Set aside.
For the head strap
1) Stitch elastic to the two short headband pieces.
2) Stitch tie ribbons to one end of each of the short headband pieces.
3) Stitch short pieces of the headband to each end of the larger bands.
4) Pin ears in place on one of the headband pieces. (Do not place too high up or the ears will flop.)
5) Stitch the ears in place.
6) Top stitch the two head straps together.
7) Add pompoms (You can glue them but we recommend sewing).
