I don’t normally do much for decorating for Easter, but this year I thought it might be fun to decorate a few things. I wanted my decorating to blend with colors in my home and not be so Easter-y, which is how I chose the colors.
This easy bunny garland is a pretty thrifty craft project, but has a big impact because of the length of space it takes up. Personalizing it to your taste is pretty much endless. All you need is some plain paper to make a template, some 12×12 scrapbook paper, scissors (you can get left handed scissors here if you need them), twine, and some pom-poms, cotton balls, or yarn.
To start out with, I drew out a simple rabbit design on a piece of blank paper. This would serve as my template. I ended up drawing 2 different rabbits because my first one was a little big for my paper. You should be able to get two rabbits out of each piece of scrapbook paper.
I don’t scrapbook, so I did have to go buy some scrapbook paper. I found papers I liked for 2/$1 and purchased two of each of the two coordinating designs. I traced around my template on the back of the scrapbook paper and cut out 2 rabbits from each piece so that I had 8 rabbits total, 4 of each design.
Next I evenly spaced them out on my work table and used hot glue to secure the twine behind each rabbit on the blank backside.
Once I flipped them over, I then hot glued little pom pom tales in to place. I made my pom poms by wrapping yarn around 2 fingers and tying it through the center, then cutting the loops.
Finally, here you can see the completed rabbit banner as it hangs from my fireplace mantel. This project just cost me the price of 4 pieces of scrapbook paper, which was $2+tax. My hot glue, twine and yarn were all leftover project materials.
There are so many choices of scrapbook paper, that you can easily find ones that suit your home decor. And there is no need to use twine either, consider using ribbon or yarn or rope or whatever else you can find that you have.
And because I don’t like to waste much, the kids used my templates (the too big one and the correctly sized one) and painted their own Easter and chocolate bunnies for their own Easter decorations to add to our home.
