6. In the middle of each face, use regular scissors to cut two slits large enough to accommodate your child's shoelace.

7. Thread a jingle bell into the center of each lace, then through the slits so the ends come out the back of the bunny's head.

8. To make the cheeks, glue on the pom-poms just below the jingle bell nose.

9. Thread the laces into your child's shoes and tie into a bow.
