How to make Crochet Slippers from Flip Flops!

Make a cute bunny ear headband in 20 min!

Quick and easy Easter bunny ears 🐰

With the current covid-19 health crisis you will be forgiven if Easter has been put in the back burner.  BUT if you are a mum, as I am, the kids have not forgotten that Easter means chocolate egg hunts. Yep I almost forgot that the bunny was coming! To make the most of it we have searched for decorations at home and found some crochet goodies I made last year.  I also found some pipe cleaners that I thought I can turn into something. And yep with some spare yarn, headband and my hook I made a bunny ear headband ready for our "Stay at Home" egg hunt. Thanks to the pipe cleaners you can create floppy bunny ears.

With some basic crochet skills you too can make this cheery headband.
Happy Easter to you all!
