Decorate for Spring with a DIY Easter Banner

Lately, I’ve been trying to craft away the winter blues. Maybe if I make enough spring decor, Mother Nature will get the hint? Crafting never hurt. Together we can try. Make your own DIY Easter banner and bring some spring to your home.

Supplies

  1. Gather your supplies. I picked some pretty scrapbook paper for the bunny shapes and used an an old poetry book from the thrift store.Need an easy spring project?

  2. Cut your bunnies. Arrange your bunnies in your cutting software. I have a Silhouette Cameo, so I use Silhouette Studio. I arranged 4 bunnies to fit on each page, making them roughly 6″ x 6″. Send to cut, using copy paper settings (or cardstock if that’s what you’re using.) If you want your bunnies to face different ways, mirror the image or use reversible papers. (Note: if you don’t have a cutting machine, you could still buy the cut files and print out the JPG file to use it to trace on your paper and then hand cut them.)
  3. Weed the paper away from the bunnies.Need an easy spring project? This DIY Easter banner is made with scrapbook paper and old book pages. It's an easy craft to bring in some spring color. #eastercrafts #easterbunny #cutfiles #papercrafting
  4. Prepare your banners. Rip out a page and then trim it down using a paper cutter or scissors if you can cut straight.Need an easy spring project?

  5. Cut the shape of your banners. Then fold the page at the bottom and cut out a triangle. (I made 10 banner pieces and it spans a space of about 8 feet.)Need an easy spring project?

I also used the bunnies to make labels for my vintage shop using the print and cut feature.
