Spring is officially here! Strangely we had a cold snap down here where it dropped to 32-38° for three days after it had been higher than 80° for more than a month! The temperature has climbed back to the high 70s, so I’m sure the flowers will continue to bloom and bunnies will be hopping out to greet us. To celebrate, I made this adorable DIY spring or Easter garland using mostly Dollar Tree supplies to replace my shamrock garland from St. Patrick’s Day. Let’s get into this tutorial!
Cut bunny shapes to add to the DIY spring garland.
When I first started this project, I started using Dollar Tree bunnies with pompoms on the butts. They’re small and come in a 12 pack. Then my family and I agreed it would look better with the bunnies that I used in my bunny topiaries. Who the heck am I kidding. When I say, “when I started…” I really mean I made the entire garland then took it apart! It looked odd that the bunnies, created to look like they’re standing on hind legs, were the same height as the carrots.
So, back at the beginning, I traced my bunny template onto cardboard and cut them out, sniffling as I went… Just kidding. No crying, just getting on to myself about finishing a project before really taking a good look at it when it was half done!
Download my bunny template, then trace them on cardboard and cut them out like I did. You can use whichever bunny you’d like. I used the sitting one. Scrap cardboard from boxes will do perfectly for this project.
