Tutorial: Easy Easter Bunting

I just did a post on some of my Easter decorations, and I wanted to share my Easter bunting that I made in about an hour!  It was so easy!

Here's what you need:

  • cute paper (I used some scrap booking paper)
  • egg template
  • scissors
  • hole punch
  • letters
  • ribbon
  • glue or photo backing squares

Let's get started! 

To make my egg template, I just found an egg that I liked off of Google Images and resized it in Picasa to get the sizes that I wanted.  You can make your eggs as big or small as you'd like - since my mantle is pretty big my eggs are on the larger side.

After my egg templates were cut out, I picked my papers, traced the eggs on the back, then cut them out.

Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures of the next part, but it's really simple.  I just took a hole punch and punched two holes near the top of each egg.  Then I used my Cricut to cut out the letters for "Happy Easter" and also cut out a few flowers to add some space between the two words.  After they were attached with the photo backing squares, I strung the letters on my ribbon and hung them up, and......

ta-da!  Easy Easter Bunting to add a little spring color to your home!

If you were wondering about the smaller eggs in the first few pictures, I used them to decorate my front door. I just hand wrote "Happy Easter" and used some clear tape to hang them up!

Happy Easter decorating!
