Simple and Fun DIY Wall Garland just in time for Easter – the Pom Pom Easter Bunnies.
First of all, Spring! It has been a great Spring Day today, sunny, warm, blue skies and all. I’m so excited knowing that the jackets, and thousands of layers of clothes and boots, it’s all gone. I actually wanted to take Phoebe and myself out for a walk. I invited Rebecca to come along, we were gonna have a coffee in the nearby park. But things got in the way, I had to stay home. So I welcomed Spring with a cup of coffee and a fruit smoothie with Rebecca in my room. The balcony doors were open tough, so…
Anyway, Easter is approaching, and I’ve already started prepping some decor for the day, planning party favors and everything (I’ve shared a sneak peak of the Easter Bunnies here). I’m not hosting an Easter party, but as tradition goes, neighborhood kids will visit, my besties gonna bring their little girls too, so I wanted to create a fun Easter atmosphere for them to enjoy for the day. There are so many things I want to make for Easter this year, decorations-related mostly. But I know that only a few will make the final cut and the Easter Bunnies Wall Garland is the first sure thing.
I already had some of these pom poms previously made, so I decided to used them here. I made a bunch more, in different colors, but then I decided to go for a more neutral color combo, with a pink pop of color, so that it’ll leave room for adding some later on. Continue below to see how to make them, even tough I’m pretty sure you’ve got that figured out just by looking at them.
the What-s & How-To-s.
Easter Bunnies – 11
Time to Make Them – around 2 hours
– Pom Pom Maker (optional);
– Paper in different colors + glitter paper;
– Hot Glue Gun;
– White Thread + Needle;
– Hole Puncher.
First, make the pom poms. You can use a pom pom maker (like these here), or you can make them like I did, the old fashion way. I’ve already shared a post where I explain how to make them without any “machine”, so I’m not gonna repeat myself and bore you again, but jump here to see the detailed instructions.
Draw a template of the bunny ears, and then “copy” that as many times you need on a thicker paper (in colors of your choosing). Glue the inner side of the bunny ears on the outer side (I’m not sure if I’m leading you through this as clear as possible, but luckily there are photos and this is not complicated, so…).
By using a hot glue gun, glue the ears to the pom poms. I tried doing this with a regular glue, it did the job, but there’s a chance that it won’t last, so to avoid my bunnies falling apart, I glued them with the gun.
Punch some holes in the paper in order to make the little noses for the bunnies and glue them to the pom poms.
Use a white thread and a needle, and sew the bunnies’ ears, ’cause otherwise (if the thread goes through the pom poms) they won’t stand right. And done.
Since the bunnies looked kinda alone on their own, I paired them with a circle garland with the same color combo.
How was your first day of Spring? And what do you think on the bunnies? Any ideas? Hit comments, I’d love to hear you out!
