Day 25: Isolation Creation Challenge ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Easter Bunting! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I thought I'd just share a little tutorial for some bunting I made to brighten up our homes and bring some much needed Easter cheer. I tried to use materials you can find easily at home so anyone should be able to give it a go. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Materials I used: – 4 Sheets of 10 x 10" Coloured Paper (If you only have white you could decorate it with coloured pens or magazine cuttings first) -Scrap paper or card for making template – Cotton wool balls or small white pom poms x 8 -Ball of string (ribbon might produce an even prettier effect) -Pen -Washi tape, masking tape or sellotape ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -STEP 1: Create a template of a bunny or other Easter silouhette. Draw this onto scrap paper and when happy with your design, cut this out as your stencil. -STEP 2: Fold a piece of the paper in half. Place your stencil on one half and draw around it. Cut out whilst paper is still folded. You should now have two bunnies! -STEP 3: Repeat STEP 2 another 3 times so you now have 8 bunnies. -STEP 4: Using pritt-stick or PVA glue, put a small amount on your cotton wool and glue to each of your bunnies so they now have a tail. -STEP 5: Lay out the string leaving at least half a metre before the end. Attach one of your bunnys using a piece of tape which has been cut down the middle length ways to make two thinner strips of tape. -STEP 6: Space the rest of the bunnies an even distance apart along the rest of your string and when happy with their position, tape the rest of your bunnies in place using the same method as STEP 5. -STEP 7: Leave at least half a metre of string, then cut the string off the ball. STEP 8: You should be left with some pretty bunny bunting! (Or as I now like to call it, Bunnyting!) Make sure to hang it somewhere you can showcase it in your home! #isolationcreationchallenge #HowTo #Workshop #MakeYourOwn #EasterCraftIdeas #BunnyBunting #Bunnyting #EasterBunny #Craft #Home #HomeDecor #Pinterest #Inspiration #AnimalLover #SharingExperiences #WorkshopFacilitator #youngproducersnottingham
