Easter makes me think of the gold wrapped chocolate bunnies I used to get as a child. Did you ever get those in your Easter basket? I’ve been decorating with gold bunnies this year, and it’s been fun to incorporate them into my home decor. Keep reading to learn how to make this shiny gold Easter bunny banner!
With this playful bunny banner you can add a bit of springtime cheer to your Easter celebrations!
- Darice Wood Cutout Rabbit
- Darice Wood Circle Banner with Twine
- Darice Nesting Circles Craft Dies
- Silhouette Adhesive Corrugated Paper
- Martha Stewart Liquid Gold Leaf Paint
- Studio 71 Paint Brush
- Tim Holtz White Paint Dabber – (Or white paint and a foam brush)
- Darice Red Ribbon
Step 1. Paint the unfinished wood bunnies with the gilded gold paint. I arranged them so that three faced to the right and two faced to the left. Paint the sides of the bunnies first and then paint the front.
Step 2. Use the white paint dabber to paint the edges of the wood circles.
Step 3. The largest die in the Darice nested die circle set is exactly the same size as the wood circle pieces. Cut five circles from the corrugated, adhesive backed paper.
Step 4. Peel the backing off the die cut circle papers and attach them to the fronts of the wood circles. Use an awl or other piercing tool to punch out the holes where the twine will go.
Step 5. Tie a red ribbon around the neck of each gold bunny.
All that’s left to do is to thread the twine (included with the set) through the pre-made holes at the top of each circle so you can hang your bunny banner! This gold Easter bunny banner would look cute on a mantle. You could string it over a door wreath, or use it as a photo prop. Have fun crafting and creating for spring!
