DIY Easter Bunny Garland

6 Comments

Today I’m thrilled to share a very cute Easter Craft created by my blog mentor, April from House by Hoff! When I started to seriously consider this blogging journey I needed some help.  April was kind enough to meet with me and show me the ropes. If it wasn’t for her I’d still be twiddling my thumbs, wondering what the heck html code was! I can’t thank her enough for all of her help, and I’m super excited to have such a cool new friend 🙂

 

Please help me welcome April!

Good morning, Blue Eyed Dove readers!
I’m April, from House by Hoff, and I’m hoppy to be here sharing my Easter Bunny Garland with you today!
{Sorry, I’m a teacher and a mom… and a dork.  I can’t resist a good pun.}
One of my favorite spring projects from last year was this super-cute, super-sparkly garland!

Here’s a quick tutorial for my Easter Bunny Garland:
(It’s as easy as it looks!)

1.  I downloaded and printed out this bunny silhouette.
2.  I tried 19 times (unsuccessfully) to unlock our guest bedroom door to retrieve my awesome sparkle scrapbook paper that I got at Michael’s.  Does anyone else lock their guest room doors to keep their toddlers out of their craft supplies?  After 19 unsuccessful tries, I tried to call Mr. Hoff for instructions.  When that didn’t work I manhandled that doorknob until it slid open….nothing stands between me and my sparkle scrapbook paper.  Nothing.
3.  I traced the bunny silhouette onto my sparkle scrapbook paper. (I actually cut the bunny down a bit and could get 3 bunnies on one piece of scrapbook paper.)
4.  I thought the bunnies needed a little something extra, so I hot glued a piece of cotton to each bunny tail.
5.  I tied some tiny bows and hot-glued them onto tiny clothespins.
6.  I clipped my bunnies onto some twine…So cute!

The little bunnies looked so cute on my Spring Mantel last year!

Don’t you love an easy craft?  There’s something quite satisfying about making a sparkly garland in under a half an hour.  🙂
It was great to guest-post at the Blue Eyed Dove today!
Thanks for having me, Erin!
