EASTER BUNNY BANNER – EASY DIY PROJECT

P1120953

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!

Don’t Put All Your Eggs in One Basket

I was shopping at my local big box store and, in the spirit of getting ready for Easter, decided to pick up some plastic eggs. They are such a cheap and easy decoration, and definitely more versatile (and less of a choking hazard) than the plastic grass!  Looking for ideas beyond hiding them under the couch or turning them into a rattle, I went to “the net” and found a blog post on PopSugar that is perfect for keeping both big and little hands busy.

12 Ways to Upcycle Your Easter Eggs
Once all the colorful plastic Easter eggs are found and opened, what do you do with them? If you’re not keen on keeping them in storage till next year, check out these 12 fantastic ideas from Circle of Moms Facebook members on ways to reuse plastic Easter eggs — from teacups and cupcakes for pretend play to a bird feeder you and your child can create together.

Snack Containers

Second to storing your eggs for use again next year, one of the easiest ways to reuse plastic Easter eggs is to turn them into holders for small snacks. The eggs are portable and a perfect on-the-go snack container for toddlers or preschoolers.

Bird Feeders

“You can also use the part that has a tiny pinhole (or make one) and tie fishing line through them about 6 inches apart, then tie [a] small knot under each egg to keep in place. [Put] birdseed inside and hang from [the] porch or trees for the little birdies. Each of my grandkids make their own bird feeders every year.” — Vicki E.

Wreaths

“I use my plastic eggs for crafts. They are glued onto wreaths with spring flowers.” — Rose W.

“Make wreaths out of old plastic eggs and give as gifts.” — Laurie B.

Pretend Cupcakes

“When Costco used to sell mini Play-Doh for cheap, I used to make cupcakes with halves of plastic Easter eggs [for the tops].” — Sunghee C. of Creativity in Progress

Playtime Teacups

“I got the idea of making teacups after I used the round halves of Easter eggs for [pretend] cupcakes and trying to figure out what to do with the pointy halves. Tea and cupcakes — yum!” — Sunghee C. of Creativity in Progress

Eggs For a Play Kitchen

“I tried to save the plastic eggs to reuse, but my daughter wanted them all to play with! So they’re now her ‘eggs’ for her kitchen, and she ‘cooks’ them for us!” — Jennifer K.

“As for plastic eggs, [my 4-year-old daughter] plays with them in her toy kitchen and she leaves them out for the bunny to fill on Easter Eve.” — Amanda F.

Bath Toys

“My kids use their plastic eggs in the bathtub — great bath toys for the whole year.” — Amber L.

Alphabet and Spelling Toys

“Put capital letters on one side and lower case on the other, match them up. Or two letters per side and use for spelling.” — Allison S.

Tiny Treasure Keepers

“My kids love to keep their plastic eggs and use them for jewelry, small parts for cars, and such.” — Cathi F.

Color-Matching Games

“We use the plastic eggs that are all different colors and patterns to play matching games throughout the year. Just take them all apart and allow your child to match them up. [It’s] good for small motor skills, hand-eye coordination, and noticing similarities/differences.” — Crystal D.

Egg-Shaped Treats

“My children are making fun-shaped foods. Rice Krispies eggs and Jello eggs are some of the fun things we’ve done.” — Lee A G.

“Use the eggs for Jello!” — Samantha P.

Tree Decorations

“My mom used old plastic eggs as decorations in the tree out in front of her house. She tied a knot at the end of a long piece of string, snapped the egg on at the knot, and tied it to the tree. I always loved going over there and seeing them.” — Hilary H.
