Easter is right around the corner so today I'm going to show you how to make these cute Bunny Ear Hair Clips! They are so easy to make and you don't need very many supplies!
Step 1: Cut two 4" pieces of white and of pink. Heat seal your ribbon ends if you did not cut them with a wood burner. You will also need a small piece of your 1/4" ribbon.
Step 2: Loop your pink ribbon into the shape of a bunny ear. Add a small dab of glue in the bottom corner and glue the ends together.
Step 3: Repeat step 2 with your other pink ribbon. You now have your 2 bunny ears.
Step 4: Loop each of your 4" white pieces into circles. Using just a little bit of glue, hot glue the ends together.
Step 5: Fold your first circle in half. You want the part you glued together to be directly in the center.
Step 6: Thread your needle with upholstery thread. Make a running stitch through the center of your bow.
Step 7: Pinch the center of your bow and pull your needle all the way through. Wrap the thread around the center of your needle several times and tie a knot.
Step 8: Complete the above steps with your other piece of white ribbon. You now have your two bows finished.
Step 9: Use your 1/4" pink ribbon to wrap the center of each bow. Heat seal the end of the ribbon, glue it to the back of the bow. Wrap the ribbon around the front of the bow and glue down on the back side.
Step 10: Glue a bow to each ear.
Step 11: Line your alligator clips and glue them to the back of your ears. Make sure to glue them facing opposite ways so they can be used as pigtail bows.
Your bunny ears are finished! I had so much fun making these I made them in several different colors. You can change the size of your bow by increasing the ribbon length by an inch. Each inch you increase the length of your ribbon will make your finished bow 1/2" bigger.
