Easter Bunny Garland in a Few Easy Steps!

This cute and colorful Easter garland is so easy to make with scrapbook paper and yarn! Who doesn’t love a sweet bunny? Both kids and adults will love making this together.

Skills Required: None. Even if you’ve never crafted before, you’ll be able to do this Easter bunny garland. You’ll be cutting paper as well as wrapping yarn. It’s pretty easy!

Easter Bunny Garland

When you have a niece that is getting into holiday crafting, you encourage her. At least that is what I do with my niece! I want her to follow her aunt’s footsteps . . . whether she likes it or not. Ha!

This year one of the holiday home decor projects we did together was this Easter garland – with cute little pom pom bunny tails!

This bunny garland could NOT be any easier. You’re using a template to cut out the rabbit shapes – and then you can use a fork to make the pom poms. Then you glue it all together.

Pom Pom BunnY Tail Easter Garland

What I love about this Easter garland is that even though it’s easy enough for a child to make, it’s something you won’t mind hanging up in your home.

We all know sometimes Easter kids’ crafts end up in the drawer, but not this one. Just pick your favorite papers and get crafting! You’ll be decorating for Easter in minutes.

Easter Garland

Gather These Supplies

  • Scrapbook paper – various colors, scraps work too!
  • Bunny garland template HERE
  • Yarn – one skein of a light color
  • Fork
  • Craft glue
  • Scissors

Print and Cut Out the Bunnies

Easter garland template

The first thing you’ll want to do to make your Easter decor is print out the template you see above – GET THE FULL SIZED COPY IT HERE. You can print it out in black and white – I just added the color for fun.

Print out a copy and cut out at least 9 – 10 bunnies (if not more!) from the scrapbook paper.

Note: I recommend using thicker paper for your bunnies. The thin sheets of scrapbook paper aren’t as stable for this project, and can also wrinkle if you attach anything with glue.

Make the Pom Pom Tails

Then you’re going to make one pom pom per bunny using a fork. To make a pom pom with a fork:

Making pom poms with a fork using yarn

Wrap the yarn around the outside of a four-pronged fork about 40 times. If you want your pom pom thicker, try 50 or 60 times. You can also use a pom pom maker if you have one. That makes it really easy!

Cut an 8-inch piece of yarn and tie off the yarn in the middle prong. You’ll tie the top and bottom together. Tie the loop and knot knot as tightly as you can.

Cut both loops on each side and fluff! You can trim around the edges of the pom to make it more tidy looking as well.

If you are more of a visual person, you can see a video here.

Attach the Bunnies and Hang

Cut a length of yarn for your garland. Make it as long as you like depending on where you’re going to hang it.

DIY Bunny Tail Easter garland

Use craft glue to attach the pom poms to the bunnies, and then to attach the bunnies to the yarn. Another option, at least for hanging by the ears, is tape. Tape is harder to use to attach the tails.

Your Easter garland is complete . . . and ready for hanging! This Easter decor looks great on a mantel or the side of a table. SO cute!

Pom Pom Easter Bunny Craft

Of course if you love the bunnies, you can use them in other Easter crafts, too.

How would you customize your project? Would you add a pom pom nose? Googly eyes? There are a lot of options for the kids to have some fun.
