{No-Sew} Easter Bunny Bunting

It’s Good Friday here and we just can’t help ourselves… we are still creating last minute homemade Easter prettiness! Today, we’ve created our own No-Sew Easter Bunny Bunting!

This is one of those crafty projects that you could happily tackle with leftover fabric scraps. But, if you’re up for some seriously coordinated bunnies, then you might have to get fussy in the fabric aisles. As it happened, I was in Spotlight the other day searching for something {that was not fabric related} and I found myself inexplicably drawn to the fabric section. I know… I think I need to go on a 12 step program for fabric addiction. Needless to say, I also happened to find 4 Flat Fats that were perfectly matched in every way just sitting side by side {well played Spotlight, well played}. They were perfect for creating bunting – it was meant to be! If you’d like to create your own Easter Bunny Bunting check it out below!

First, draw a template of your bunny. If you’re not rivalling Picasso in the art stakes, you can copy from the one I created here. The bunny size that I created fit snugly onto ¼ of an A4 piece of paper.

Before you get too excited and start cutting fabric, it’s a good idea to work out where you’d like to hang your bunting. The space I wanted to hang my bunting was just under a meter long so I roughly worked out that I needed 8 fabric bunnies to decorate the length. This may differ for you so let your decorating space be your guide.

Cut out your template and pin it to your fabric. If you’ve mastered the art of cutting in multiples you can cut the fabric while it’s folded. If you haven’t mastered it but still want to give it a go to save some time then just be mindful that the under-layers of fabric can move when you turn the scissors {keep a strong hold on them!}. Once you’ve cut out all your bunnies, give them a quick whip over with a hot iron to flatten the fabric again.

Measure up the length of ribbon required and place the bunnies evenly across the ribbon. Use the fabric glue to stick the bunnies on to the ribbon. I ran out of fabric glue midway through so I decided to experiment with a hot glue gun {using only clear refills}. So far it’s been a great substitute but I’m expecting that it may discolour over time. Experiment at your own risk 😉 .

For a little extra cuteness, add little pom-pom cotton tails!

When your glue is dry, hang your bunting!No-Sew Easter Bunny Bunting via {In Our Gumboots}

This is a quick and easy way to decorate your home for Easter; especially if you’re running out of time!

I’d love to see your Easter bunting! Feel free to share photos or links to your bunting below.
