It’s almost Easter and today I want to share with you how to make this adorable Easter Bunny Burlap Banner. It’s the perfect addition to any mantle, hutch or entryway. For this project you’re going to need the following supplies: 6-8 burlap triangles, fabric, twine, paint, bunny stencil, craft clothes pins.
Using the stencil, paint the bunnies into the burlap. Becasue burlap isn’t a tight weave fabric you will want to do this on a piece of paper becasue the paint will seep through. You can do all of the bunnies one color or mix it up to match the fabric ties. Set aside to dry.
Taking your fabric, make a small slit 2″ from the edge and “rip” your fabric into long pieces once you have them all torn, you can trim them each to about 12″ long. Tying the strips onto the twine works best if the twine is attached to something. I went ahead and hung it on my mantle and assembled it there. You’ll want to double your strips of fabric and tie them like I’ve shown below.
Tie is all of your fabric strips onto the twine to your liking. I spaced them to where I had three between each burlap bunny flag and then four in each end. Depending on your space or where you’re displaying this piece, you can add more fabric strips to fill it in.
I attached all of the burlap bunny flags with small craft clothes pins. You could glue them depending on your preference but I like the look at the pins. Plus, it makes it easy to change out the flags for other holidays if your fabric strips will coordinate with other seasons, I can use this one through Spring and Summer.
What are you doing to decorate for Easter? I love pieces that can be changed with the seasons. It takes the stress out of decorating for me a little.
