Bunny Hair Clip Tutorial

Bunny Hair Clip Tutorial - The Ribbon Retreat Blog
Hop on over and see what we have in store for you. This Bunny Hair Clip Tutorial is fun, fast, and festive. So hop to it and create this adorable clip.

Hello, my name is Rebeca from Clips N Things. Welcome to the Ribbon Retreat Tutorial page. Today I will be showing you how to make a ribbon bunny.

Note:  When choosing your colours, make sure the colour you will use to line your clip is the colour that you want for your bunny’s nose.

All of the materials I used are from The Ribbon Retreat.

Bunny Hair Clip Tutorial - The Ribbon Retreat BlogTools to make Ribbon Bunny:
3/8” Grosgrain ribbon in Brown:  12″ ( 2 pieces 2.5”, one 2” and one 5”)
3/8” Grosgrain ribbon in Light Pink (or whatever colour you want your nose to be):  7″
(This piece is used to line your clip, if you fully line it. It might be less if you partially line your clips.)
1/4” Double Faced Satin ribbon in Light Pink:  7″ (2 pieces 2.5” and one 2”)
1/4” Double Faced Satin ribbon in Festive Fuschia:  5″
Glue Gun
Alligator Clip
Lighter or Wood Burning Tool
Measuring Tape

~Bunny Hair Clip Tutorial~

Bunny Hair Clip Tutorial - The Ribbon Retreat BlogYou will need 2 pieces of the brown grosgrain ribbon and the light pink satin ribbon.  Cut both into 2.5″ lengths.  Out of both the brown grosgrain ribbon and the light pink satin ribbon, cut one 2″ piece.  Glue the satin ribbon to the middle of your grosgrain ribbon as shown. Make sure you heat seal all your pieces.

Bunny Hair Clip Tutorial - The Ribbon Retreat BlogGlue the ends of your 2.5” pieces, with the satin on the inside, and make them pointy for the ears. Take the 2” piece and glue the ends together to make a teardrop shape (leave the satin on the outside). This makes the bunny’s tummy.
Set aside.

Bunny Hair Clip Tutorial - The Ribbon Retreat BlogTake your 5” piece of brown grosgrain ribbon and glue the ends together to make a figure 8. Leave the bottom loop a bit bigger than the top loop. I folded my top piece down at 2″.

Bunny Hair Clip Tutorial - The Ribbon Retreat BlogFold the top loop down and crease it. Make sure to leave a tiny triangle shape when you crease it, as shown in the picture. This is the spot for your bunny’s nose. Apply glue to the creases only.

Bunny Hair Clip Tutorial - The Ribbon Retreat BlogGlue your tummy to the back of the body and your ears to the back of the bunny’s head. If you look at the picture of the back of the bunny, you will notice all seams are close together. When you apply your clip to the bunny, you need to make sure that you can see the clip through his nose, and that the clip covers the seams on the back.

Bunny Hair Clip Tutorial - The Ribbon Retreat BlogTo make your bunny’s bow tie, take your 5” of Festive Fuschia satin and put a dot of glue in the centre. Fold down one end and make a loop. Apply another dot of glue and fold down the other side of the ribbon and make a loop.

Glue the bunny’s bow tie to the centre of his body and glue his eyes on. Finally, glue your bunny to your lined alligator clip. Don’t forget to have the clip showing through the nose. And you’re done!
