Supplies Needed to Make a Bunny Banner

- Toile Contact Paper
- Bunny Ornaments
- Sola Flowers
How to Create a Bunny Banner
Step 1. Trace the bunny
Place one of the bunnies onto the toile contact paper and trace around it with a pen.
Step 2. Cut out the bunny
Use your scissors to cut out the bunny. Repeat for as many bunnies as you will be using.
Step 3. Removing the backing
Remove the backing from the contact paper and place it on the wood bunny. This contact paper is so pretty and is such an easy way to update wood cut-outs.
Step 4. Color the flowers
Now it’s time to color the sola flowers. You can use whatever color you like. Since I am going with a neutral Easter decor, I used brown and black. This is also perfect for the design of the contact paper.
The longer you let them sit in the paint, the darker they will get. I let them sit for about 30 minutes.
Step 5. Glue the bunnies to the burlap bags
Use a hot glue gun to attach a bunny to each burlap bag. These bags are the perfect size for a banner!
Step 6. Hot glue the flowers
Once the flowers are dry, hot glue them to the bottom of the bunny for the bunny tail. So cute!
Step 7. Add ribbon
Now you can run your ribbon across the length of your bunny banner. I found pretty buffalo plaid ribbon, but you can use whatever style you like.
Tie an extra bow in between each bunny for a little extra detail.
Isn’t this the cutest Easter banner? I’m so excited about how it turned out. Here it is displayed on my mantel:
