PB Kids has new Easter decor out, and no surprise here… It’s pretty darn cute. I saw this adorable Bunny Garland and thought to myself, “That’s really adorable, but I’m pretty sure I could make that with things I have in my craft closet.” So I did.
- Colorful Scrapbook Paper
- Bunny Template (see below)
- Pen & Scissors
- Cotton Balls
- Craft Glue
The scrapbook paper was from a spring pack that I had in with my craft supplies. Pick whatever colors/patterns you like!
Here’s the template. You can either right-click and save the image, or click on the link below the image to save as a PDF.

Just trace the template and cut. Then use craft glue to glue cotton (I used about 1/3 of a large cotton ball) to the bunny, and glue the bunny to the ribbon. Too simple!
This would be a great Easter project for your mantle, or even for older kids to help with.
I love doing paper crafts with the twins. They aren’t quite old enough to start practicing with scissors, but paper scraps are a total hit.
Here’s how we make it work:
The night before (or at nap time) I trace my stencils out onto paper. There is no way I would be able to do this with the twins watching! Then, we all stand around the kitchen counter or at the table while I cut out my shapes. The twins are really good about understanding that the scissors are off limits. They just patiently wait for paper scraps for fall.
I swear, these little scraps of colored paper are more precious than gold to a 2.5-year-old. Miss B especially loves to collect paper scraps and gather them in a cup or bowl. I’m not exaggerating when I say that this can provide hours of entertainment.
