With Easter just days away, Molly and I cooked up a quick and easy garland to dress up the mantel and make our house look festive. This worked well with our St. Patty’s Day Shamrock garland, so I sought to replicate it. I wasn’t as focused on the end result – just spending an hour doing this with her was a lot of fun. She’s very proud of it and showed Mike as soon as he got home from work.
First, we started with a few crafty materials.
· Elmer’s School Glue
· Martha Stewart Bunny Punch
· PSA Peel & Stick stamper loaded with espresso ink and easter egg from PSA Topiary
· PSA Peel & Stick stamper loaded with plum purple ink and bunny from PSA Little Bunny
· Glitter glue
· A small hole punch (we used one with a star)
· Fiskars scissors
· The Twinery twine
· Pastel cardstock
I first folded the paper in half, the cut out eggs. With the remaining paper, I let Molly punch the bunnies out using the Martha Stewart bunny punch.
Then she glued the bunnies onto the eggs.
We stamped a few of the eggs, alternating between Little Bunny with plum purple ink and the easter egg from PSA Topiary with espresso ink.
We used some glitter glue, because really – gliter glue is way more exciting than regular school glue.
Time to punch the holes.
Threading the twine required a lot of assistance, but Molly also worked hard to do it herself.
All threaded up...
And ta-da! Doesn't it look cute? Most importantly.... it was fun!
