Is Easter creeping up on you too? I have barely put my winter decorations away and feel like I need to move quickly before Easter has come and gone! But just like any holiday, I don’t want to spend too much time or money on decorations but I want to bring some of the feeling of Easter and spring into our home. I created a bunny stencil that can be used for not only decorating uses but also for Easter basket gift tags and even as an art activity that the kids can do during this busy time. And you can download it here for free and use it to create you own springtime and Easter creations.
I provided the bunny stencil in two sizes to make it more versatile. There are so many different things you can do with this fun shape. Here are a few of my favorite ideas:
PAINTED WOOD SIGN – I just took a piece of scrap wood and painted and sanded the background to give it a distressed look. Then I traced the larger bunny stencil and painted the silhouette. I sanded the sign again when the white paint was dry to keep the distressed look and then I added a homemade pom pom for the tail. Click here to learn how to make your own pom poms. Or you can buy them at any art supply store. If you like this sign but don’t want to do the DIY – I’m selling them in my Etsy shop. Click here to visit my Etsy shop.
DECORATE A BAG – I used some white paint again and a stencil brush to add the smaller bunny to this burlap bag. A store bought pom pom was added too. Fill these with candy and you have a sweet Easter treat.
PAPER BANNER – I used some scrapbook paper, cut out the smaller bunny shapes, glued on pom poms again and added twine to the backs. Makes a super cute spring banner.
COLORING SHEETS – print out a few pages and let the kids color and decorate the bunnies with markers, paint, tissue paper, decoupage, or stamps. Decoupage is my favorite! You can cut out the shapes or leave as is.
GIFT TAG OR BASKET DECORATION – trace the stencil onto a piece of paper and use it as a gift tag or decoration in an Easter basket. I stuck my bunny on a piece of heavier paper and glued out to a twig for a flag-like decoration.
