How To Make A Rabbit Mask

You Will Need

  • 2 paper plates
  • newspaper
  • marker pen
  • pink coloured pencil
  • PVA glue
  • 1 stapler
  • pink tissue paper
  • 1 bowl
  • 1 paintbrush
  • 2 black pipe cleaners

Method

Cut away the central section of one of the plates, leaving two ear shapes still connected at the bottom; staple this ear plate to the other plate.

Cut the end off the left over the piece of card you removed from the ear shape; then fold it over twice, and stick it onto the bottom of your mask with masking tape.

Draw large eyes on with the marker pen.

Mix PVA and water in your bowl, coat the plate, then stick on pieces of newspaper. When you cover the ears, leave a white gap in the middle of the ears. When it has dried, cut away any excess newspaper and cut out the eye holes.

Cut your pipe cleaners in half, then wrap one piece around the remaining three to create the whiskers. Stick some pink tissue paper to the middle of the pipe cleaners for the nose; when dry, stick the nose and whiskers onto the face.

Draw on some fur around the eyes, a dividing line down the muzzle, and some dots for whiskers.

Use a reserved square of white card, draw teeth on, cut out the gap in the middle, and stick the teeth on to the back of the snout.

Staple each end of the string to the back of the mask near the eyes, then tape over the string with masking tape. Tie a knot in the string so it fits your head.
