Here in south-central Montana, spring is beginning to make its presence more evident. Easter is a few short weeks away and Pinterest is alive with a plethora of creative ideas. One I have frequently seen is bunny and/or egg garland.
While visiting the Dollar Store recently I saw the cutest sparkly egg garland but it seemed to need a little something more. Suddenly all that Pinterest inspiration came rushing in and I snatched a set to dress-up when I got home!
|I forget to take a picture of the entire strand before I started the project, these are screen shots off of the video I took!|
Here is how it went down:
I designed a bunny template which is available in my FREE monthly newsletter (you can see details for sign up at the end of this post. If you decide to register, I will try to send this month's edition straight to your in-box within 48 hours). I printed my template on card stock so it would be sturdier.
I've been collecting scrapbook paper for years and happened to have a sweet set of prints perfect for spring. I chose a few which seemed to reflect the colors of the egg garland well and gave the line some variety.
I cut my bunnies out in blocks to separate them and then secured them with a small strip of tape at their 'bottom' on the WRONG side of the scrapbook paper (you will see why in a minute). I cut them out in this way.
PSA: I LOVE my crafter's tape... it is quite affordable (I bought mine in a multi-pack on Amazon) and it works like a charm (no more waiting for glue to dry!!)
I like this garland because, not only are the eggs in an assortment of beautiful colors, but each is separated by a clear bead which can be slid along the line. I created a pattern of: egg, bunny, bead, egg..... However, you could actually un-string all elements of this garland and re-string them differently if you wanted. Me, I wanted something quick and easy!!
I filmed the entire process which is still available in saved stories on my Instagram account. If I hadn't been filming, this project could have been easily done within 30 minutes!
