Easter Glove Bunny
The process of turning the four fingers and thumb of a white glove into two bunny ears is actually quite easy.
Just follow the photos and take your time to adjust the folds until your Easter glove bunny starts to take shape.
1) First, push the thumb inside the glove and smooth it down.
2) Next, push the index finger inside the glove, then reach inside and push the index finger upwards, sliding it inside the middle finger.
3) Push the little finger inside the glove, then reach inside and push the length of it inside the adjacent ring finger.
4)Insert a plastic or foam egg inside the glove to make the bunny body.
5) Adjust the side folds and smooth them down as much as you can before turning up the cuff of the glove. You should find that the cuff provides tension against the folds, keeping them neat and tidy.
6) If necessary, stuff the bottom of the rolled-up cuff with a small amount of polyester fibrefill stuffing, tissue paper, or even a bit of paper towel; just enough filling to even out the bottom of the bunny so that it can stand up securely.
7) Now your glove bunny needs a cute Easter bunny face! Start by gluing two medium white pompoms together with tacky glue or hot glue, then add a small pink pompom at the middle top of the white pompoms for a nose.
8) Turn a small foam heart upside down and glue it, with the point hidden, at the middle back of the joined white pompoms for teeth.
9) Cut three lengths of black sewing thread and glue them to the center back of the white pompoms so that about three quarters of an inch of the three threads sticks out on either side for whiskers.
10) Glue the assembled pompom face to the center of the bunny. Glue two black beads above the pompoms for bunny eyes.
11) Finally, glue a short length of white feather boa, or a few downy feathers, around the ears to add some charming bunny fluff.
