DIY rabbit ears

BarbarellaHi everyone, sorry for posting this so late. Amanda’s family came over and we were busier than I thought we’d be. Tomorrow is Easter and I’m so excited! Today I’m going to show y’all how Amanda made my rabbit ears.

 

DIY Easter Rabbit Ears

Here’s what you’ll need

  • Cardboard
  • Scissors
  • Red and white paints or pink and white (we used acrylic paints)
  • Pencil
  • Two paint brushes (one fat to paint it all one color and one that is thinner for design)
  • Some fabric (any color and kind), my fabric is 34 in. long and 1 1/4 in. wide
  • A plate (for the paint)
  • Duck tape (I used pink but white will also work too)

Okay now we should be set. First you draw a rabbit ear on your cardboard as big or as small as you want. Mine are 6 1/4 in. tall and 2 1/2 in. wide.

Then you need to cut it out. Now place it next to where you just cut it out and trace around it and then cut that one out.

Now you have two rabbit ears. So we start painting.

Put your white paint on the plate, get your fatter paint brush, then paint the ears all white.

Amanda put 3 coats of paint on my rabbit ears so that they’d be extra white. Then, once they dry, mix your red and white paint up (just put one dot of red) to make pink. Then use your thinner paint brush to do the inside of the rabbit’s ears.

Now cut a strip of cardboard. Mine is 5 1/2 in. length and 1 1/4 in. wide.

Then paint the top white (if you want) and bend it like in the picture.

Now you put your fabric on the top.

Then turn it over and duck tape the fabric to the cardboard at the edges. I painted the bottom of mine pink too.

Then turn it back over and cut a slit in the fabric as big as the bottom of your rabbit ear.

And lift the fabric up and duck tape the front and the back of ear to the cardboard. Repeat on the other ear.

We are all most done. All we need to do is duck tape the fabric to the cardboard like in the pictures and do the same thing to the other side.

P.S. I hope you have enjoyed this DIY. Sorry it was late.

Garden Work

We have been working in the garden a lot lately.

 

I have been ridding the garden of those pesky (and yummy) grub worms.

I have also been riding in wheelbarrows.

And cheering everyone up by being all cute (I don’t have to try that hard).

Working in the garden is hard work.

 

The Hunt

BarbarellaSometimes when it’s a warm day, Mini and I go rabbit hunting. I love to hunt for rabbits but I never catch one. Do you know why? Because they cheat by going through the fence so we just chase them for fun and you never know if you’ll get lucky or not.

We have 1 way to find rabbits… team work. Mini is the tracker and the alarm because she has a (really) good nose and she yells every time she has the rabbit’s scent. I’m the chaser because I am the fastest.

Duke came along with us to help find the rabbits.

So we were off and Mini was picking up a trail in no time.

When Mini and I ran out of the woods and into the open, Amanda and Jess got some quick pictures of us.

On the edge of the woods, there was this brush pile so we went to investigate and then a rabbit came running out the other side and went in the woods, so we started running after it.

But we lost it (I bet it turned around and went through the fence). So we came back to Amanda and Jess and then we went back to the house.

On our way back Jess, took this picture.
