  3. Glue the white felt around the toilet roll. Then, paint the egg cup white and allow to dry.
  4. Trace and cut two ears from the white glitter foam sheet. Trace and cut two inner ears from the pink felt, and glue them on top of the glitter foam ears.
  5. Glue the bunny ears to the felt-covered toilet paper roll.
  6. Add a drop of glue to the end of a broom bristle and push it into the white pom-pom to make a whisker. Add the rest of the bristles in the same way, so that there will be two whiskers on each side.
