Bunny Bunting

 I just love the look of buntings. I made one for Claire's room a little while ago and I just love the punch of colour that it adds to the room. I wanted to make a scaled down version for Easter. What does one need to make an Easter Bunny Bunting?

For the bunnies:
pink cardstock
googly eyes
black marker to draw on the face
dark pink paper for the nose
template for the bunny

For the bunting:
coordinating patterned paper
template (makes things easier)

hole punch

The project was so simple to make. To start, I made a bunny template. (If you're interested, I can post the template.) Then I cut out all of my bunnies. I like to get all of the cutting out of the way, so I also cut the bunting triangles too. It's so easy to do while you're watching tv. Then Claire and I glued on the googly eyes. I ended up finishing off the bunny faces while Claire was napping, but obviously older children could draw the faces themselves. Then punch a hole in each ear of the bunny, and each side of the bunting. Thread a ribbon through the holes and voila! you're done!
 Can you tell Claire glued on these eyes?
 Bunny bunting.
