Bunny Bows!

I’m soo excited to share my bunny bows with you!  They’re soo springy and cute!  Do you want to make some for your little girls?  Let me show you how!

Lets start with the ears.  Your going to want to cut four pieces of ribbon four inches long.  Two white for the outside of the ear and two pink for the inside.

Alright, so here is the only slightly tricky part of this whole thing.  Your going to hot glue one end of a white and pink ribbon together and then loop it around before you hot glue the other end.  The pink will slide out an eighth or a fourth of an inch because it’s on the inside.  Glue the ribbon ends together so they make ear looking loops.

Like so.

Next we’re going to make the bunny belly.  Cut six pieces of ribbon, one of each of these measurements: 6 inches, 5.5 inches, 5 inches, 4.5 inches, 4 inches and 3.5 inches.  If you don’t want to make such a full looking belly you could just do three pieces of ribbon, one 3.5, 4.5 and 5.5. 

Loop your ribbons around and hot glue them at a right angle on the end of each other.  Does that make sense?  Just look at the picture you’ll see what I mean.

Start stacking and hot gluing the layers together where the ribbon came together at a point.

Take a hair clippy and line it with ribbon.  Now we are ready to assemble our bunny.

Overlap the ears and glue them together and then glue them to the clip.  Glue the belly about a fourth inch underneath the ears.

The last step is to make the face.  Take a 2.5 inch piece of white ribbon and loop it around and glue the ends together.

Take your little white loop and mash it down and crease it with your fingers.  Take your hot glue gun and squirt a little glue in the corners where it overlaps on itself.

Line up the triangle on your bunny face with the triangle on the body and glue it down.  Add googly eyes, a mini pom-pom nose and make a little bow tie.  And you are all done!

Aww, what a cute widdle bunny wabbit!  Inspiration for these came from this etsy shop.

Hoppy bow making to ya!  (Sorry I had to say it.)

*If you want to make these a little smaller then cut the ears at 3.5″ and the body at 3″, 4″ and 5″.

    Hi Mariesa! I love your site! I am going to Wal-Mart today to buy more ribbons to make these precious bows for my granddaughter. I’ve seen the little blue crab clippee but have not found a tute on it… would you perhaps have one? Thanks for your tutorials!
