How to Make

  1. Take a large paper plate and turn it over so that the light side is on top. Then cover it in a coat of white paint. Add another coat of paint if needed.
  2. Once dry, cut the underneath section off of the plate, with two ‘cheek’ shapes in the centre.
  3. Cut a triangular nose shape from a sheet of light pink paper and stick it to the plate at the bottom in the centre. Stick some white pipe cleaners either side of the nose to make the whiskers.
  4. Take a sheet of white copier card and cut out two long rabbit ear shapes. Then cut out two inner ear shapes from the light pink paper and stick them to the white ears.
  5. Stick the ears to the back of the paper plate mask at the top. Then carefully cut out the two eye holes.
