Easter is upon us and preparations have been made. Tell me if you can guess what these are:
What about this, know what it is?
They could be pickets for a cute little picket fence, but they're not.
When those not-pickets were being cut up, there were some pointy shaped leftovers. See what the Youngest did with them (check out the cape too):
Okay, I'll have mercy on you. I bet you can guess what they are now:
Yep, Bunny Ears. The Youngest's class party is today and I was scrambling to get these made in time.
I used one giant (36" x 60") piece of white Foamies and two of the regular (11" x 17") size pink Foamies to make them. At JoAnn's they were charging $.99 per (11" x 17") sheet. At that price, this project could get expensive real fast when you need enough to make 12 hats. But I found the giant roll of white Foamies on an endcap on the aisle and they were charging only $7.99 for it.
I would have needed 3 regular white sheets per child (12 kids). Ouch. Without the big roll or a coupon I would have paid $38.00 for 12 hats or $3.16 per kid.
With the roll and a 40% off coupon the Total price for 12 hats = $6.80 or $.56 per child. Much better.
The bands that go around the head was 4" x 20" and was stapled together at the back of the head (smooth side of the staple to the inside please.) I made a template of the white part of the ear and drew it onto the big sheet. I made a smaller template for the pink part of the ear. Assembly of the ears was done with regular glue and then the ears were stapled onto the back as well. I'm a big fan of staples, can you tell?
Super easy Easter project and they turned out darned cute if I do say so myself:
