I just made this Easter Bunny Garland with items from the Dollar Store in just an hour, and it was cheap to make.
I look forward to Fall and Christmas, but it’s downhill from there. In fact, it is a real struggle for me until Spring. Honestly, this has been the warmest winter that I can remember here in the South but Spring is right around the corner, and that means Easter will be here soon.
I have started seeing Spring decor in the stores, and I wanted to make a springtime garland for my fireplace. I knew what I wanted the garland to look like, so I went to the dollar store to find some things to make the bunnies with. If I go to the Dollar Store with a vision in mind, I usually find a few things that will work.
I found a car cleaning cloth that would be perfect for the round bunnies. I went looking for something to make the ears with. I saw the pink plastic knives and knew that would work perfectly. I had to snap a little piece of the ends of the knives so that the ends would not show.
I used a plastic coffee lid to press down on the cloth to make a circle for me to cut out. You could use a glass or maybe a measuring cup also.
I had some scraps of burlap and home, so I cut out rectangles, folded the burlap over my string and glued with a hot glue gun.
I secured the garland to my fireplace like I do everything else, with Command Hooks. I actually leave the command hooks attached to the fireplace because I use them all year long.
This Easter Bunny Garland was super easy, and took me less than an hour to make. Happy Spring ya’ll!
