I love Pottery Barn holiday decorations! (You may have already read this in my PB Inspired Valentine Tea Towel post.) Their Easter decorations are adorable and were introduced just in time for an Easter party that I was helping to plan. Unfortunately, the $26.00 price tag was WAY out of the price range for decorations. I knew I could make a similar banner for a much lower price using printed cardstock from my scrapbook stash, white grosgrain ribbon and minky faux fur trim. It was an easy project and it is adorable – all for the bargain price of $5.30.
I’ll admit I have gone a little bit bunny crazy and the banners are multiplying like, well, rabbits. Try making one or a few for your Easter décor. You can also make the bunnies and use them individually as place cards or buffet labels.
- 7 sheets – 8.5×11 cardstock in assorted, coordinating colors
- 94 inches of grosgrain ribbon, I used white and off-white
- Yarn, minky trim or eyelash yarn for pom-pom tails
- Glue gun and glue sticks
- Easter Bunny Banner Printable if you plan to hand cut or Easter Bunny Banner file for your Silhouette cutter
1. Print bunny cutouts on the wrong side of your cardstock.
2. Cut out 13 bunnies (or download my Easter Bunny Banner file for your Silhouette cutter and add to your library)
3. Choose your style of bunny tail.
*I have used red thread for demonstration purposes, use thread that matches your trim.
*If using eyelash yarn follow the yarn pom-pom step above.
5. Get your glue gun ready for the next steps! Glue pom-poms tails to bunnies using glue gun.
6. Glue end of ribbon under using glue gun. Next, make hanging loop at end of ribbon using glue gun and a pencil as a guide. Then starting 5 inches from end of ribbon, glue bunnies to ribbon, leave .75 inches between bunnies.
- Cardstock $.50 a sheet for 7 sheets = $3.50
- Grosgrain ribbon, 96 inches = $0.50
- Minky faux fur trim, 26 inches = $1.20
- Glue stick = $0.10
- Total cost $5.30
