Let’s make it!
I painted the first layer and the letters for the garland with Mint Chip from Debi’s Design Diary DIY Paint. Y’all, I love this color!
The pieces go together like a puzzle! You can see exactly where to put each layer. I’ll be painting the pieces as we go. That scalloped edge is the bombdiggity!
I used Petticoat Pink on the second layer and White Swan for the bunny.
I dried everything with my heat tool, but you can set yours aside to dry if you’d like.
I used my sanding sponge (linked in the supply list) to smooth out each piece.
TIP: Line up the holes on the first two layers! That’s where your twine will be threaded.
This glue (or any super glue) is great for adhering wood to wood. Hot glue dries thick and the pieces won’t lay flat, so I usually use DAP Rapid Fuse for my wood projects.
You can still see the outline on the painted bunny. That’s so you’ll know where to place the next piece.
I used clothespins to hold the pieces together while the glue dries.
I added a bit of pink to the bunny ears.
I used twine to string my banner together. I started with the last letter, threaded the twine through the front and along the back of the piece (see first image), then continued until all were connected by the twine.
I carefully flipped each piece over and put a dot of hot glue on the back over the twine. This will keep the pieces from moving.
I tied some bows for the corners and used hot glue to adhere them to the banner.
And we have an Easter banner! Isn’t it just the cutest?
I really enjoyed this craft and hope you did too! Let me know in the comments how you might create your own! I appreciate each and every one of you.
