It seems like yesterday that we rang in the New Year, and now, March is upon us. This year, holy week just so happens to fall in the month of March, which means Easter is just around the corner! With this in mind, we’ve come up with two fun DIY projects to elicit the Easter spirit in your home.

Let’s start with the Easter Bunny Buntings. First off, you will need the following materials:

Aged book paper glued to a sheet of kartolina paper

Cutout or stencil of the Easter Bunny

Twine

Scissors

Puncher
