I got a new Cricut machine this week and I’ve had so much fun playing with it! My first project is an Easter Banner and I used my Cricut to cut out a bunny stencil and the fabric pennant shapes. I love that I was able to size the bunny stencil exactly how I wanted it – especially since I could not find a bunny rabbit stencil at any of my local craft stores.
Easter Banner Supplies:
– 6 Burlap (or any type of fabric you like) pennants – mine measure about 6″ x 9″
– Bunny Rabbit Stencils – I used cardstock for mine – you could also purchase a Rabbit Stencil on Amazon
– Foam Paint Brushes & paper plates
– Pastel Pom Poms
– Acrylic Craft Paint
– Ribbon, Buttons, Glue Gun
Using the foam paint brushes I carefully painted one bunny on each pennant. Then after they were mostly dry I used a hot glue gun to add a pom pom tail to each one. I attached them with a glue gun to a white ric rac ribbon and added a few pastel buttons.
I love the finished banner! It took me about 1 hour to make and since the only thing I had to purchase was $2.50 in paint and $1.00 for pom poms it was a really affordable decoration!
My daughter also got in on the fun. With the cut out bunnies from the stencils I made she made her own little banner for her bedroom door! 🙂
