DIY Burlap Bunny–Easter Decor

I don’t really do any decorating for St. Patrick’s Day.  It is not a holiday we really celebrate other than a small visit from the Leprechaun, turning a few items green and wearing green so we don’t get pinched.  So I have already started pulling out my Easter décor.

Easter-decorations

I have been updating my Easter décor this year and getting rid of a few really old items that I just wasn’t in love with any more.  Here is my first Easter décor item I want to share with you today.  You can make one too!

easter-decor This framed Burlap Easter Bunny is not a new idea and I have seen several versions floating around the internet…here is my version.

I started with an old 12 x 12 picture frame that I had laying around and I spray painted it white.  I can’t remember the last time we had nice enough weather in a February in Utah to be spray painting outside! But I am not complaining!

easter-decorationsThen I took some burlap (which can be purchased at most craft or fabric stores) and cut it to fit into the frame.  I attached the burlap to the cardboard that came with the frame with a glue stick just so that it would lay down nicely and let it dry.

easter-craftsThen I cut this bunny silhouette out on my Cricut Explore and used the vinyl as a stencil.  If you don’t have a cutting machine, I have made it so that you can download the bunny as a pdf and make your own stencil the old fashioned way with a pair of scissors and some cardstock.

Stencil the bunny onto the burlap with white craft paint and let it dry completely.  Then simply glue a regular cotton ball or a white pom-pom onto the bunny’s tail with the hot glue gun.

Printable Easter Banner

St. Patrick’s Day is coming up in less than a week, but I am going to jump ahead and share with you this fun and simple Printable Easter Banner today.  This printable banner is really simple to make.

And since I know many of you do not have the fancy cutting machines, I made this one so that EVERYONE can replicate it for their own home if they want.  I made this banner the “old-fashioned” way.  All you need are a pair of scissors, some burlap, your favorite colors of scrapbook paper, two white pompoms and a sharpie.

Simply print the patterns for the banners (the inner and outer banner), the letters and bunny shapes onto a thicker piece of cardstock.  This will give you a nice thick pattern that is easier to trace.  Cut out the patterns and then cut 8 of each banner.  I did the colored cardstock on the outer banner flag and then used the burlap for the inner banner.

Trace each letter and the bunny shapes onto the burlap for each letter with a fine black Sharpie.  Then fill in each shape with a thicker Sharpie.

I did use fabric for one of the outer banners because I wanted a green one and had no green scrapbook paper on hand.  And…when I get going on a project…I just want to get it finished!!  You might also notice black under the burlap…it is there for a reason and I will share that in an upcoming post!

Glue a pompom on each bunny to give him a cute little cotton bunny tail.

Then hang your new Easter Bunting up in a fun and visible area in your home.  I simply attach the banner with some mini clothespins onto a string of twine and then tape it up on my dish hutch.  Super easy and festive!
