Make yourself a couture inspired rabbit ear headband.
I fell in love with all the couture rabbit ears that were going around a few months ago and I spotted a headband similar to this for £180, so I decided to have a go at making my own. Total cost = £7!

Those are brilliant. I saw those online and thought they were cuter then the regular rabbit ears. Though not worth the high price.
