To celebrate all of the fun things going on here recently and my return to regular every day blogging (yes actually this time!) I thought it was high time that I gave you all a Bergamot themed craft: Bergamot Bunny ears!
While you can’t buy a Bergamot Bunny yet, you can make your own ears!
Start by drawing an ear shape on the cardboard. It should be very round and a bit fatter at the ends. Draw a little rectangle tab on the bottom too.
Cut them out and you should have something like this!
Cut out a rectangle of fabric which is big enough to cover the ear when it’s folded in half:
Trim it down so when folded in half it forms a case for the ear.
Stitch it shut around the outside leaving the hole at the bottom and flip it inside out.
Slip the cardboard inside.
Once you repeat for the other ones it should look something like this:
Now cut some pink hearts and stitch them on here:
Next fold the cardboard on the bottom ends so they form tabs.
These cardboard tabs will hold the ears up straight.
Now glue the cardboard tabs to the bottom side of your headband. Make sure you place them off to one side so they look just like Bergamot.
Glue the ends of the fabric around the bottom over the cardboard so it covers it all.
If you want to you can place a piece of felt over the top to make it even neater.
Now the finishing touches, make a little lace bow. This is Bergamot’s favorite kind of lace.
And glue it to the base.
Now you have some adorable Bergamot ears so go wear them out somewhere!
Let me know if you guys try it out!
I had a bit too much fun with mine haha!
Thanks for reading!
