DIY Easter and Spring Decor

I love creating easy décor and this simple Easter Bunny Garland doesn't get much easier.

I've included a template so that you can print the bunnies on paper and an SVG file so that you can use with your favorite cutting machine (I love my Cricut and used it to make this simple craft even easier!).

I'm sharing this fun springy craft as part of this month's Thrifty Style Team with so many beautiful home decorating ideas and crafty goodness - it's like a virtual Easter Party!

Be sure to check out all of the lovely ideas (all THRIFTY!) from the rest of team at the bottom of this post.

Easter Bunny Garland Supplies and Tips

You can use vintage paper, book pages, cardstock in beautiful colors, or any other paper you like.

I googled dictionary pages and vintage book pages and then downloaded ones I liked and printed them out but I have some free ones just for you (no need to search Google!) that you can download from my shop.

Once you download your pages or choose the paper you want to use, you're ready to begin!

How-To Make an Easter Bunny Garland

First, I printed out my vintage dictionary paper and then I set up my Cricut using the SVG file for the bunnies and made several copies ending up with 12 bunnies total for each Easter Bunny Garland.

Make more or less depending on how long you want your garland to be.

If using plain paper and you want the vintage paper look, first, print out the dictionary paper then, using that same paper, print out the bunny template and cut out using sharp craft scissors.

Whether using the SVG file or the standard bunny template, once you are done cutting out the bunnies (either by hand or with a cutting machine) punch a small hole at the top of each bunny ear using a paper hole puncher.

Next, add cottontails!

I used regular cotton balls that I cut in half crosswise and glued them to the bunny bottom using Aleene's Clear Gel Tacky Glue.

A Mini Yarn PomPom can be substituted for the cotton ball tails.

Now that the holes and tails have been added, let's go ahead and string twine (I used plain natural jute twine but you could use some colorful baker's twine) through the holes in the bunny ears evenly spacing as you go.

I placed one garland swag on a wall above my Dollar Store Farmhouse Book stack along with a white cake plate with a papier-mache bunny and a vintage cast iron bunny figurine on it. Very springy!

And, another Easter Bunny Garland was hung from my farmhouse hutch but you can put them almost anywhere. I'd love to see where you hang yours!
