PAPER BUNNY BANNER WITH COTTON BALL TAILS

March 4, 2016

Easter is just around the corner, and I thought I would get started on a few projects that I had in mind.  Personally, I prefer it when Easter falls in April.  It means planting season and warm weather is that much closer.  Now I just wonder if it will rain, snow, or be a decent day on Easter. As I finished up this project, we were starting to get flurries.  You just never know with March.

 

 

The project that I'm about to share is a simple garland that either you or your kids can get busy doing.  You will need a few things, most importantly, my bunny silhouette, which I've included in this post to get you started.

 

TOOLS & MATERIALS:

 

  • Bunny shape (download below)

  • White card stock

  • Scissors

  • Scrapbook paper in your choice

  • Pencil

  • Cotton balls

  • White glue

  • Hole punch

  • Jute twine or string

  • Tape

 

DIRECTIONS:

 

Download the bunny shape and print on white card stock.  The card stock makes it easier to trace with than regular paper.

Once it prints, cut it out.  Use a pencil to trace the bunny on the back of scrapbook paper.  Cut out as many as you need.  

 

Glue the cotton balls to the tails of the bunnies.

 

 

Then punch two holes in each bunny to feed the twine through.

 

 

Hang the garland in desired location with tape!

 

I hung the garland in my dining room over the wall shelf my dad had built for me a few years ago.

 

  

 

 

 

Some of you have inquired about the wall colour in the past.  Almost every room in our house is painted in this colour, but unfortunately I don't know what it's called.  We haven't gotten around to painting the rooms yet.  It looks like a gray at first glance, but can appear beige in certain light. It's not really my taste, but painting is a big project that I don't want to tackle just yet.

 

 

I hope you enjoyed today's Easter project.  Have yourself a wonderful day!
