DIY - Easter Bunny Garland
I finally got around to creating the Easter Bunny Garland I previously featured in my Tuesday March 1, 2011 edition of Tuesday Tutorials.
I got this fabulous template and idea from my favorite website Hostess with the Mostess's blog - you can find the template/directions here.
I chose a pastel look rather than the vibrant bolds featured on Hostess's blog for 2 reasons - 1) my Easter decor that I have is mostly pastel and 2) I already had the paper in stock so I didn't have to go out and purchase anything other than the ribbon. The paper I used was K&Company Specialty Paper - Sparkly Sweet. I think it's perfect for this craft. The ribbon was just a no brand from JoAnn's that I picked up the other day when I was purchasing supplies for the diaper cake (which you can find posted here).
This was an extremely easy project and I think the end result is mighty cute! I would like to find a better way of adhering it to my mantel other than tape - my husband won't let me put holes (nails) in the mantel. Boo.
Thanks for looking!
p.s.: I realize I need to stop taking photos with my camera phone because the quality of the photo is terrible - you can't even see the details on some of the paper patterns. Eek, sorry guys!
