Cutting out the Bunnies

Option 1: Scissors

Download the bunny PDF Template and print out one copy. Use it as a stencil to cut out the bunny shapes onto cardstock paper in your chosen colors. Once you have eight bunnies in each color, you're ready to assemble the garland.

Option 2: Cricut Maker

Connect your Cricut Maker to your computer using a Cricut USB cable. Upload the Bunny Template SVG file from your computer and make eight copies of the bunny shape to fit a 12”x12” sheet of cardstock. Arrange each shape to maximize space and reduce paper waste. Follow the setup instructions on the computer, ensuring that the material type and weight match your cardstock. Insert the knife blade and start the cutting process. Peel away the paper from the mat and carefully remove the bunny cutouts using a spatula or weeder.

Assembling the Garland Carefully assemble the bunny shapes to create a delightful garland.

Assembling the Easter Garland

Lay out all the paper bunny cutouts with the right side facing up. Heat up your glue gun and apply a small dab of glue where the tail will go. Press a pom-pom onto each bunny and let it set. Repeat this process for all the bunny shapes.

Finished Garland Hang your charming bunny garland to add a festive touch to your Easter celebrations.

Attach the bunny shapes to a long piece of twine, ensuring that the twine runs behind the bunny head. Space each bunny approximately 6” apart. If desired, repeat the process with the other color of cardstock. Once your garland is complete, hang it on the wall or above the fireplace to enjoy throughout the Easter season.

Conclusion

Creating your own DIY Easter garland is a delightful way to add a touch of whimsy to your home. Whether you choose to cut out the bunnies with scissors or use a Cricut Maker, the process is easy and enjoyable. Gather your materials, unleash your creativity, and let the Easter spirit inspire you. Happy crafting!
