I have a curious 4 year old who literally follows me everywhere and wants to take part in everything I’m doing. Most of the time, I LOVE IT! I love that she wants to learn different skills, I love that she’s not just glued to the TV, and I love seeing that sense of accomplishment on her little face when we are done! So naturally, when I’m thinking of crafting ideas, I try to find at least a little part that she can help with. This Easter banner was a perfect project for her. With just little bit of paint and glue dots she made a cute banner!
I listed where I purchased these supplies but, if you don’t have one of these stores near you, I’m sure you can find another similar store with similar supplies!
1 pack of foam bunny shapes
1 roll multicolor curling ribbon
2 packs of linen pennants (dollar spot)
Stuff From Around the House:
1 pc of old cardboard
- Make a stencil of an Easter egg 3 in wide by 4 in tall. I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut one out in adhesive vinyl, but you can easily make one by hand with scissors and contact paper or a thick card stock. A template for the stencil can be downloaded here.
- Protect your surfaces by painting on top of the cardboard. Linen is very porous so expect paint to seep through.
- Lay stencil over pennants and dab away. Since the little one will be painting, I used a few glue dots to secure the stencil down. That worked pretty well and they lasted for all 8 pennants we painted.
- Using glue dots, attach foam bunnies to the rest of the pennants.
- Attach pompoms to the bunnies with glue.
- Thread the pennants together using the curling ribbon and hang!
Now sit back and admire your new Easter banner! Let us know what you think in the comments below!
