Vintage Printable Paper Bunny Banner an Easter Decor Craft
Spring is all around us, popping up it’s perky little head. I don’t know about you, but it’s sure made me want to get my hands crafty! Deep in the dirt too, but I have not had time for that yet.
Several weeks ago, The Graphics Fairy shared the cutest vintage Easter tags and I knew I wanted to make something with them for sure. I printed them out and set them aside so I would be ready when I had a few minutes.
Yes, we have a few projects going on, but I didn’t want to gloss over Spring and Easter entirely!
Normally, Spring and Eastertime are some of my favorite times to craft and decorate for with the freshness of the new season and the soft colors of Easter. Plus, I love bunnies. I’ve got a small collection that I started when I was still in high school. It’s fun getting them out and unwrapping them each season.
This was simple to make, like most things I share.
I find crafting very zen. Is it that way for you too?
I used a glue gun to apply my “chenille look” yarn to my paper tag edges and it was utterly calming. I think that is why I stick with simple. I don’t want to be irritated. Because that is no fun.
- Print Out The Vintage Easter Gift Tags from The Graphics Fairy – Click Here For The Direct Link.
- Cut Out Tags.
- Embellish Tag Edge with Fuzzy Yarn. (as shown in supply photo)
- Apply Rhinestone (or other) Embellishment. I did this to cover the white spot where you would punch a hole.
- Twist Jute and Bakers Twine Together in Length Desired.
- Glue To Back of Paper Tags. (TIP: start with your center tag and work out to get an even placement)
- Use Scrap Fabric For Knotted Accents Between Tags. (I used a gauzy pink fabric)
- Loop Ends, Hang and Enjoy!!
(I’m working on a prettier place to hang this and I hope to get it done… before Easter. haha)
If you have a big family, with lots of kids running around for Easter, I envy you. We had that too when I was little. Everyone got together and it was beautiful chaos! Once, when I was about 12, I flew to visit family, and my favorite cousin up North (I was still living in California) and we had a white Easter! We got to go to service and there was such a hush over everything. It was pure magic!!
Now that Austin and my niece and nephew are grown it’s just not the same. You need the little ones, egg hunts and the excitement they bring I think. I see a quiet day for us. Although, that might not be a bad thing.
Count your blessings where you can find them. Right?
If you liked this craft, feel free to pin-it, share with your friends… and make sure to let me know if you make one too. I’d love to see a photo if you do! ~Shannon
