Hey loves! I hope you are enjoying Spring as much as I am! The warmer weather in Arizona has been really nice! Today I have an easy Easter craft for you since it’s just a few days away. I whipped this lovely paper Easter Banner out in just an hour one afternoon.
The materials for this Easter craft all came from Consumer Crafts.
- Colored card stock
- Small Clothespins
- Bakers Twine
- Computer and Silhouette if using a cutting tool like I did. Scissors if cutting out shapes on your own.
I purchased an Easter set of cutouts from the Silhouette store (their Easter shapes are all 20% off right now!!) and used my computer and Silhouette cutter to cut them out on the Spotted Card Stock.
Then it was just a matter of measuring my bakers twine (I used a yellow and white twine) to fit across my mantel. I hung the twine on the mantel then used the clothes pins to hang each of my Easter cutouts across the twine. Easy as that!!
Using the spotted card stock was fun because it gives each of the shapes a little added dimension. OH! And quick tip if your trying to hang something lightweight with small clothespins like these… Make sure the clothespin is all the way down on the twine, then barely stick the cutout into the clothespin. Otherwise the weight isn’t distributed right and everything flips upside down!
Your turn: Do you decorate for Easter? Do you go the traditional pastel route or mix things up some other way???
Speaking of Consumer Crafts, this is the last week to get entered into their Pin It to Win It Contest!! Don’t miss out because you could win up to $500 worth of craft supplies from their site!!!
P.S. Hope you enjoyed this post! If so, we’d love if you’d follow along!
