Up next in How to Make Halloween Costumes (26 videos)
Put together a great Halloween costume with the ideas in this Howcast video series.
You Will Need
- Measuring tape
- White poster board
- Pen or pencil
- Pink and gray felt
- Two white pipe cleaners
- A glue gun and glue sticks
- A plastic headband
Make the headband
Measure the head of the prospective bunny-ear wearer, and then cut a piece of poster board long enough and wide enough for a band that wraps around the head. You may have to glue strips of poster board to each other to make a long enough band. Glue the ends to each other to make a circle.
Draw the ears
Sketch two bunny ears of whatever size you like on the gray felt and cut them out. They should be at least 7 inches tall. Then cut two identical thinner and shorter ears out of pink felt.
Attach the pipe cleaner
Using the glue gun, attach the pipe cleaners to the headband where you'd like the ears to be, or wrap them securely a few times around the headband so the cleaners are standing straight up.
Glue an ear to the pipe cleaner
Glue a gray piece to the back of a pipe cleaner with the glue gun. Once it has dried, glue a pink piece on top of the gray piece and the pipe cleaner, making sure the pink and gray pieces meet at the base of the ear.
Do the other ear
Repeat for the other ear. Cut the ends of the pipe cleaners so they're hidden inside the felt.
Put on the ears, bend them using the pipe cleaner if you'd like, and get hopping!
