As mentioned in my Eggless Easter post I like to think beyond the (egg) yolk when it comes to springtime/Easter decor so in this video I do 3 easy DIYs to decorate your head, home, and a greeting card for your peeps! Hop to it and I hope you get inspired!
DIY Ribbon Bunny Ears Headband
- hot glue gun
- hot glue sticks - they look like bunny ears in this pic
- WIRED fabric ribbon 2-4" wide - I chose a satin teal color
- plain headband
DO IT! (watch the video above for more visual help with the steps):
- Wrap the wired ribbon around your headband, hot gluing as you go, until the entire headband is covered.
- Measure out the ribbon you'd like to use for your ears - I made my ears about 8 inches tall (any longer might flop) - leave about 6 inches extra to wrap and secure around the headband and remember you're folding your ears so you need double the length... meaning for mine I cut 22" for each ear piece (8 x 2 plus 6 inches to wrap)
- I chose to crumple the ribbon for the ear, so that the ribbon looks a little disheveled, then glue it around your headband using the 3 extra inches on each side to wrap around the headband - use as much hot glue as you need until they feel secure. Repeat for the other earpiece.
DIY Burlap Egg Family Art
- a picture frame
- large paper for art that fits your frame - I used a thick yellow piece of paper from the craft store
- hot glue gun and glue sticks
- burlap - or fabric of your choice
- contrasting paper for the eggs' accessories (I used a chrome and yellow scrapbooking paper)
- permanent marker
- Use permanent marker to draw egg shapes on your burlap and cut them out.
- Use your pencil to draw out little features and accessories for your eggs on your accent papers - I did hair for Joey and I and ears and tails for the kitties.
- Plan your layout for your egg shapes, making sure they will fit within the frame, then hot glue in place and hot glue your paper accents on or behind the edge of your fabric eggs.
- Place your new art back in the frame and flaunt it in your house!
- acrylic paints (mixing true colors with white will make them pastel)
- paint brush
- bunny peeps
- blank cards
- a pen or marker
- paper towels (for excess paint/ clean up)
- paper plate (or painters palette)
- cup of water
- Place dollops of your paint colors on your paper plate - mixing white with any color will make it pastel
- Coat the back of your peep evenly using paint on your paintbrush and firmly but carefully stamp it on the front of your card - I chose to do them minimalist but you could do multiple peeps or add eyes etc!
- Let dry and write something to your favorite peeps!
Happy springtime decorating!
