Since I am not a kid anymore, easter has lost a bit of it’s charm for me. I enjoyed the family brunch still a lot, but since I’m not living close to my family anymore that also is not happening anymore. So why do a post about easter decoration?
I browsed the web a bit for inspiration to decide if I wanna do a easter post. I was not very convinced. But then I stumbled upon the Sandra’s blog ZWO:STE and her cute easter egg bunny ears and I was hooked. I wanted to craft easter egg bunny ears right now. So I did. My own version of course.
Sandra’s blog is in German, but even if you don’t speak German it is worth to check out her blog, just for the beautiful images. Go ahead, get inspired.
And then craft these really simple easter egg bunny ears. Right now.
- aluminium wire
(I used black coated one) ∅ 1,2 mm
you can use any other wire, aluminium is just very easy to bend, so you can use your hands
- pliers to cut wire
- tape (in the colour of the wire or clear)
1 – Cut approx. 30 cm of wire for each bunny ear wire tiara. Bend the wire in the shape of bunny ears, try to place the ears in the middle of the wire.
2 – Bend the ends of the wire together in a circle – get an egg to measure the diameter you need. Wrap tape around the wire ends to secure them.
3 – Repeat until you have as many easter egg bunny ears as you need for your easter breakfast.
4 – Place the easter egg bunny ears on your boiled easter egg. Done.
Fun fact: since I am living in Cape Town, South Africa, I haven’t seen white eggs, only brown ones. Maybe I don’t look at the right places or maybe there are no white eggs in South Africa? Does anyone know?
So I will enjoy my South African easter with brown eggs and bunny ears! What is your favourite easter tradition?
