Adorable Easter bunny banner, a Cricut craft (free printable for hand cutting)
A cute Bunny Banner for Easter is so much fun, especially with these adorable little pom-pom tails. My kids start to get all excited for coming spring and the Easter celebration when the weather starts warming up and I start making Easter Decorations.
Here in Ohio, the winters can sometimes extend into April, so decorating for Easter becomes a big deal in our home. My parents had a red card table with gray metal legs. At Easter time my mother and father had a plastic tablecloth that fit perfectly onto a card table and dropped to the floor. This plastic card table covering have to design of a little cottage house on decorated onto it. The cottage had a front door and two sides little windows. It was the perfect little playhouse for two girls, my sister and I, who had spent most of their days inside during the winter.
Three or four weeks before Easter, my mother would set up the card table with the little playhouse covering and we would play in and out onto that card table for hours. Then on Easter morning, the Easter baskets would be in the living room when we woke up, sitting on top of that beautiful little cottage house card table. On the side of the little cottage would be the two inflatable 4 foot tall Bunny Rabbits that were part of our Easter celebration for years.
These are memories I will always have of our family Easter celebrations, and the crafts that you enjoyed this spring with your children will be memories they will carry for a lifetime.
And our home, the dining room table which is part of the great room becomes the indoor play cottage in the winter. As the calendar starts approaching spring break, I pull out our bright yellow Easter tablecloth and love to decorate the table with the Easter baskets that will be visited by the Easter bunny.

I started by searching my pastel card stock supply and picked out several pretty patterns that I thought would bring brightness and color into our home. I cut 10 bunnies and then started making pom-poms. I decided that a cute little white cottontail would accent beautifully.
After the bunnies were cut out, and the pom-poms made, I placed the end of the pom-pom through the hole I punched at the tail location of the bunny. Even the biggest knot I thought would hold, did not hold the pom-pom in place, so I taped the loose strings on the back to secure the tail.
I picked out a beautiful purple ribbon that matched my colors in the Bunnies. I decided so that they would not move position to hot glue them in place. Next for the perfect spot to hang the banner. Our main focal piece is our fireplace so I finally determined that this was the perfect spot.
This is a quick and fun paper craft that you can have a ton of fun with your little ones. You will be teaching hand-eye coordination, color matching, and cutting skills. Let me know if you make one for your home.
