Easter Banner DIY Project & Organization Ideas

Easter DIY Bunny Garland & Craft Room Organization

Are you ready for spring? Me too! After Christmas, I start to get the winter blues.  If you are a crafter, now is the best time to get all your spring projects done and get organized.   If you need some ideas for getting your craft room in tip top shape for making all those amazing projects, now is the best time to get organization projects done. Hop on over to my Pinterest board and click here- Let’s Get Organized

Today, is a double post too, as I am also sharing this easy and quick DIY Easter bunny banner project that you can get done before the temperatures warm up and we all get busy doing outside activities and projects.

Let’s get to it-

EASTER BUNNY BANNER – EASY DIY PROJECT

SUPPLIES:

  • Spring themed scrapbooking paper or Solid Cardstock (One 8 1/2″ x 11″ sheet per bunny or you can scale them down to cut two bunnies from 12″ x 12″ pages)
  • Silhouette Cutting Machine is needed for this project (or you can use the image below, scaled up and printed, and cut out as a tracing template)
  • Downloaded Silhouette Image #16784
  • Ribbon – Ric Rac or Satin Ribbon
  • Pom Poms (these can be handmade or purchased)
  • Hot Glue or Tacky Craft Glue

STEP-BY-STEP HOW TO:

1.) Cut your bunnies, either with a Cricut or Silhouette (Design number is for the Silhouette) cutting machine or use the image below to drop in Microsoft Publisher, scale it up and simple print it and cut it and use it as a trace template.  If using your Silhouette, you can remove the white circle, since you will be adding your own soft yarn pom poms on top of the cut bunnies.

2.) Add your yarn pom poms to the center of each bunny with either hot glue or tacky craft glue.  Allow each pom tail to dry before you assemble your banner.  If you don’t want to make your own pom poms out of yarn, most large retail chains or craft retail stores do sell fuzzy poms that would look great as well.

3.) You may punch holes, if you have a hole punch, across the top ears and thread your ric rac or satin ribbon in and out of the holes- or simply lay out all your rabbits horizontally over your ribbon and glue each of the back of the ears on top of the Ribbon.  Super easy! All done. Now you are ready to hang up your Easter bunny banner!

Easter Crafting With The Kids

EASTER CRAFT PROJECT

Egg Carton Bunnies

Oh my!  Easter is almost upon us!  It has snuck up on all of us this year with it falling on March 27th.

Today I am sharing a fun and easy project to do with the kids this Easter.  Make sweet chicks, bunnies and caterpillars from recycled egg cartons.  They are adorable!  Use paint, googly eyes and construction paper to give the critters extra character.  And they can be used as favors. Fill them up with candy eggs or jellybeans.

Check out the instructions on how to make them below – but first, if you are planning a party soon, be sure to visit all of my Etsy shops to snag some party decorations, pinwheels, and party favors below:

EASTER BUNNY BANNER – EASY DIY PROJECT

TGIF!  I wanted to share this easy and quick DIY Easter bunny banner project today. Let’s get to it-

SUPPLIES:

  • Spring themed scrapbooking paper or Solid Cardstock (One 8 1/2″ x 11″ sheet per bunny or you can scale them down to cut two bunnies from 12″ x 12″ pages)
  • Silhouette Cutting Machine is needed for this project (or you can use the image below, scaled up and printed, and cut out as a tracing template)
  • Downloaded Silhouette Image #16784
  • Ribbon – Ric Rac or Satin Ribbon
  • Pom Poms (these can be handmade or purchased)
  • Hot Glue or Tacky Craft Glue

STEP-BY-STEP HOW TO:

1.) Cut your bunnies, either in the Silhouette or use the image below to drop in Microsoft Publisher, scale it up and simple print it and cut it and use it as a trace template.  If using your Silhouette, you can remove the white circle, since you will be adding your own 3-D yarn pom poms on top of the cut shapes.

2.) Add your yarn pom poms to the center of each cut bunny with either hot glue or tacky craft glue.  Allow each to dry so they won’t shift when you assembly your banner.  If you don’t want to handmake your pom poms out of yarn, most large retail chains or craft retail stores do sell felted poms or cotton poms that would look great as well.

3.) If you have a hole punch, you may punch holes across the top ears and thread your ric rac or satin ribbon in and out of the holes- or simply lay out all your rabbits horizontally over your ribbon and glue each of the back of the ears on top of the Ribbon.  Super easy! Once dry, you are ready to hang up your Easter Bunny Banner!

Pinwheel DIY Tutorial

 PINWHEEL TUTORIAL FOR FABRIC HAIR CLIPS

SUPPLIES NEEDED:

  • fabric scraps
  • heat n bond (double-sided like you would use for applique)
  • iron
  • scissors
  • buttons or brads
  • hair clips
  • felt
  • fabric glue or hot glue
  • fray check sealer

NOW LET’S MAKE IT:

Cut two pieces of fabric and one piece of heat-n-bond the same size.

Iron the heat-n-bond to the wrong or opposite side of one fabric piece, let cool and remove.  Place the wrong side onto the back of the first piece and iron.

Cut the piece down to size.  For smaller hair pieces, cut 2″ x 2″ squares.  For a bigger hair piece 3″ x 3″ size squares.

  After the square has been cut, run a thin amount of fray check around every side and let dry.

Next step is to cut a slit at every corner towards the center the same length.  Be careful not to cut all the way to the center.

If using a brad, follow these steps for completing the pinwheels.  First, fold one tip on each triangle that will be folded down over a little and cut a tiny slit, as shown in the first picture.  Next fold the pinwheel in half and cut a slit in the center.  Starting with one of the corners, slip the prongs of the brad through the slit, and work around to each slit, adding the rest of the blade tips.

Finally, push the brad through the center slit and press the prongs of the brad out to secure on the back of the pinwheel.

If using a button instead for the center, you can fold all the blade tips to the center, simply push down to form the pinwheel and either sew the button to the center or even hot glue it with a glue gun.

Trimming is optional.  If you like your pointed tips showing, leave them or trim the corners peaking out from under the button or brad.

Next cut a piece of felt that is small enough to not be seen from the front.  Attach with fabric glue or hot glue.

   An alligator type clip will work best for these pinwheel hair clips.

To attach it, cut a smaller piece of felt and glue it over the top part of the clip onto the other piece of felt.

Or use ribbon glued onto a clip and then glue that directly to the pinwheel for the smaller size hair clips.

ALL DONE!   

These can be made with bobby pins too!

Look how adorable they are in situ!

Oh, SPRING – Where are you?!

These make a perfect hair accessory for a spring gathering- or an Easter Egg Hunt in the garden!

Add a magnet on the back and stick them on the fridge.  Or add them to a spring door wreath.  Lots of ideas for fabric pinwheels.
