Materials needed to make the baby bunny costume ears:

DIY baby bunny costume ears
  • baby headband
  • white felt
  • pipe cleaners
  • craft boa trim
  • ribbon or trim
  • hot glue gun with glue

Start by measuring the length of your baby headband. You can buy headbands for very small children for fairly cheap in any drug store or mass merchandise store like Wal-mart. There is always a section for baby and children's hair accessories.
Cut the felt about one and a half inches wide and about an inch longer than the entire length of the headband.

Using your hot glue gun apply some glue to the end of the headband (starting at either end) and attach the white felt to the band. Work first on the top part of the headband, applying a small stripe down the entire width of the band, and then smoothing the felt onto the headband.

Turn the headband over and repeat this on the underside of the headband. First work one side onto the band, then the opposite, working in small sections so the glue does not dry too fast. Lastly, place a small dollop of glue on the very end of the underside of the headband, and then fold the end flap of felt over onto the glue to hold it in place. Repeat this for both sides. The entire headband should be wrapped and covered in felt. The underside of the headband will have a line where the felt meets in the middle. To give the baby costume accessories a finished look, you will cover this with some ribbon or trim. Simply place a line of hot glue along where the felt meets together. Work in a straight line, again, in small sections. Place your ribbon or trim over the glue and press down. Work this all the way along the underside of the head band.

Use a cutting knife or craft knife to make a very small slit into the top of the felt covered headband. To determine where your ears should go on the headband, first figure out where the very middle top of the headband is. Now measure about 1 - 1/2" to either side. This is where you should make your little cut. Slide the folded edge of the pipe cleaner into the slit so that it lays flat onto the headband. Apply a small dollop of glue to the opening to keep the pipe cleaner in place. Make another slit about 1/4 - 1/2" down on the headband and slide the opposite end of the pipe cleaner into it. Again apply a small dollop of glue. Repeat this step for the other bunny ear.

Next apply some glue along the pipe cleaner and attach the craft feather boa trim all the way along the pipe cleaner. Do this for both ears. Once the glue has set repeat this step for the back of the pipe cleaners as well.
To finish the baby bunny costume ears apply some glue along the top of the headband and glue the boa trim to the top of the headband as well.

As soon as I put these ears on my daughter she decided that they were not to come off. :)
This is the face she made when I tried to take them off of her. She gave a little yelp and grabbed for them so I left them on. She re-adjusted them and gave me a look like "what are you crazy!? Hands off!" LOL I just had to let her wear them while she watched her movie (She LOVES to watch Monsters Inc over and over and over and over :)
