A few years ago Pottery Barn must have had some super cute and trendy bunny garland that was all the rage, because I keep seeing garlands similar to the one I made and they all say “Pottery Barn Inspired”. I Googled it, and couldn’t find what the original one looked like, so this is knock off of a knock off of the original Pottery Barn Bunny garland.
I can see why everyone and their mother made a knock off of this.
It is CUTE and uses simple supplies. And here is some even better news: this fabric garland came together quickly and without a sewing machine! I had to scrimp and scrounge around my craft room and improvise some (I didn’t have enough white pom poms for tails, so replaced some for pink) and I just barely had enough yarn to make the yarn pom poms that give this the extra oomph it needs).
I was excited to make this with things from my stash, once again showing that can creativity can solve for a lot of problems . For example, I had to use an old scrapbooking tool to punch the holes into the bunny ears in order to thread the bakers twine that was left over from wrapping some Christmas gifts.
My no-sew bunnies were cut from fabric using my Silhouette Cameo die cutting machine. It made cutting 6 of these babies quick and easy, but you could just as easily cut them with a fabric scissors. I did adhere some Wonder Under to the back of the fabric before cutting and that provided the stability I needed.
To give the bunnies some stability, I ironed them onto some stabilizer that was left over from making a quilted bag.
I made the teal pom poms with some yard left from Christmas project and I used my small Clover pom pom maker. Everything got strung together with some baker’s twine and wa-la!
This project could easily be made from paper too, but I think the fabric will be a bit sturdier so that these bunnies survive to see another few Easters.
What are you crafting on for Easter?
