Easter Bunting - Pinterest Success {19}

 

Easter has definitely arrived quickly, this year. We moved on from St. Patrick's Day in what seems like an instant and we are still in the midst of winter here, so it's not very springlike. But, since Easter is such a cheerful holiday to decorate for, with its pretty, bright colors and cute bunnies, I wanted to find a fun project to add to my existing decorations. Two ideas on Pinterest caught my eye and I decided to combine elements of each, to make this cute springtime bunting for my fireplace mantel. The original pins can be found here and here, but they were really only for inspiration.

I easily cut the bunting shapes with pinking shears, using a small bunting template that I found online. This needed to be a no sew project, since my sewing machine, unfortunately, is broken right now. I used three types of quilting fabric for the shapes and simply folded the top of the fabric around some pink twine and secured it with liquid stitch. The last step, was to tie some colorful ribbon, patterned with Easter eggs, all along the bunting.

The bright colors are a beautiful, festive touch and will help us prepare for Easter and spring; just around the corner.

Happy Wednesday!

  4. Agreed! On everything! Hard to get into the Easter mood with snow on the ground - 3-4" here - and that the bunting is pretty and easy to make! Love your colors and the way these garlands transform an entire room with one festive flag at a time!

  5. So pretty, and very spring welcoming. We could use a little bright and cheery around here with zero temps and 2' of snow still with us. Grrrr. Your garland is so cheery!

  8. I love the bright colors but my house is more of the jewel tones. I always struggle with the spring decor because pastel and bright don't work in my downstairs. Cute bunting!

  17. Will be pinning this to my Easter board. :)

    Feels wrong having Easter when it is still so wintery doesn't it? We're due snow again tomorrow. *sigh*
