Last Easter I posted a photo of Coco Bean wearing her pink DIY bunny ears whilst she carried a large carrot. I dubbed her ‘The Easter Beany’. Holy cuteness.

Many of you wanted to know how we made the bunny ears, so we’ve put together a quick tutorial for you. Seriously, it really does take two just minutes! It’s the easiest DIY ever, and makes for a great Easter photo.

I’m going to have the ‘Here Comes Peter Beany Cottontail’ song in my head all day now.

Happy Easter, Pretty Fluffies!

  • And Your Pupster!




DIY Bunny Ears Tutorial

1. Use a pipe cleaner (more than one if your dog’s head is a bit larger) and mold into a circular shaped headband. Try fitting to your dog and adjusting if necessary. Bend the tips inward to prevent any wire pokes.

2. For each bunny ear, bend a pipe cleaner in half to form an oval shape with a pointed top. Pipe cleaners are very flexible, so feel free to play with the shape! Connect by wrapping the bottom end of the ears around the top of the headband . Do this for both ears, and you’re all set!
