Directions

  1. Begin with a piece of foam, slightly larger than your bag on the sides, but about the same height.
  2. Fold the foam in half and draw two half circles, just like you would draw the round parts of a letter B. Be careful not to go completely to the fold for the middle line.
  3. Cut along the drawn lines (when you unfold the foam, you'll have two connecting circles).
  4. Cut and attach foam ears on the top circle.
  5. Decorate the bottom circle with foam pieces and craft eyes to make a happy rabbit face.
  6. Draw a small circle about one to two inches in diameter between the ears and cut out just the circle.
  7. Glue the bunny head to bag, leaving the ears above the opening of the bag. Now your bag can hang from a doorknob.
