DIY Felt Bunny Garland

I stopped in Hobby Lobby last week since their Easter items were all 40% off and picked up a few things for Easter and a few things for Olive's bunny birthday party.  I'm planning to use my bunny decorations for her party.

I found these packages of 5 felt bunnies with pom-pom tails for less than $3 and they were 40% off so I picked up three packages.  I used twine and hot glue to assemble my garland.  I spent about $5 on this garland and they seem to be selling for much more than that in stores.

I tried different color patterns and ended up liking the repeated pattern best.  I precut my twine to the length I needed, folded it in half and started gluing bunnies on in the middle.  I had an odd number of bunnies so I did the same amount on each side of the middle bunny.  It worked out perfectly.  I also picked the garland up after attaching a few bunnies to ensure that they were hanging correctly.  

I put a line of glue on the bunny's back and made sure to put it in the same spot for each bunny.

 Let the bunnies dry completely for 15 minutes or so.

 I made mine to fit my mantle and LOVE LOVE LOVE how it turned out.
The wooden bead garland was a thrifty find from several years ago.  I got two long strands of these pastel wooden beads for just $2!!



Hoppy Easter week :)
