- White sweatshirt

- Cut a large oval about the size of your chest out of the pink craft fur and glue it to the center of the sweatshirt.
- Twist four pipe cleaners onto the headband, two pipe cleaners on either side, with each set of two pushed close together so the pipe cleaners stick straight up.

- Cut pieces of pink satin for the centers of each ear and glue to the front of the fur.

Enjoy Wearing Your Costume
Whether you decide to purchase a bunny tail for your rabbit costume or if you decide to make your own, the most important thing to remember is to have fun wearing your costume. Get dressed in plenty of time for the party or other special occasion that you'll be attending so that you can get comfortable in your costume. Practice sitting down while wearing the tail so that you'll be prepared for doing so in costume.
