How to Make

  1. Take a small paper plate and turn it over so the white side is showing. Then cover it with a coat of red paint. Leave it to dry. Repeat this with another small paper plate.
  2. Once dry, use the gold deco pen to draw the silhouette of a rabbit and colour it in.
  3. Use a black pen to draw an eye and then write ‘2023’ above the rabbit.
  4. Use a yellow deco pen to draw lines around the edge of the paper plate.
  5. Cut two pieces of yellow wool about 20cm long. Tie a knot in the end of each one and thread some yellow and red beads onto them.
  6. Take the other paper plate that you painted in step 1 and put double sided tape all the way around the inside edge. Stick each piece of wool onto either side, and a yellow wooden craft stick at the bottom.
