Last Minute Bunny Ears for Barbie

Sometimes the easiest things bring the biggest smiles... These Last Minute Super Simple Bunny Ears for Barbie would be so cute tucked inside a plastic egg, or they're a great project to have the girls make for themselves. It's a fast craft that only requires the plastic ring from a water bottle for the headband and pipe cleaners for the ears. Of course you could make them fancier and maybe glue a little pink to the center of each ear (you know I'm thinking glitter:@) but I wanted to keep it as quick and easy as possible, especially if you have several Barbies to help get ready for Easter...

Last Minute Bunny Ears for Barbie
Material:
~Plastic ring from a water bottle (the part that stays on the bottle when you screw the cap off).
~Half of a pipe cleaner in whatever spring-y colors you have.
~Plastic egg to put it in-optional. I also think it would be a fun surprise if the girl just finds her Barbie wearing bunny ears.
  • Cut ring off of bottle. Bring the two sides of the pipe cleaner up around the ring (making a V), wrap each side tightly around the ring once. Fold each side down in half to make ears and shape them how you'd like. Reshape ring into a circle if necessary. Glue something pink or white to the middle if desired.

  12. I really just think you like playing with your Barbie and wanted an excuse to play with her every day! It must be that same feeling I get when I walk through the school supply aisle and see all the crayons and markers! We don't really have to grow up!
