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 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 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 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.
