You Will Need

  • Card, pink, white, green & yellow
  • Fineliner pen
  • Elastic
  • Glue, or double-sided tape

Step 1

Use a compass to draw a 260mm circle onto some card and cut out. Measure and trim away one-third of the circle. Use the remainder of the circle to make a cone, using double-sided tape to stick the ends in place.

Step 2

Trace the large bunny face template, onto the front of the hat in pencil (or go freestyle and draw your own). Paper piece the nose using some coloured card, and use a black pen to draw on the eyes, mouth and whiskers.

Step 3

Trace the sections of the ears template onto two shades of coloured card, cut out and attach to the back of the hat. Pierce a hole on both sides of the hat using a piercing tool and craft mat (a needle or other sharp object will also work, or if the kids would like to do it themselves, we recommend using an office hole punch). Thread through some elastic cord, secure with a knot and dot of glue. Add flowers to the sides, to finish.
