If you’re hosting a party or are simply redecorating a room, you have to try out this simple, no sew fabric garland. It is the perfect piece to take a space from drab to fab! What’s great about this DIY project is that you don’t need a sewing machine or needles, you can use new or old pieces of fabric, it can be done in less than an hour and you can pretty much get started on it right away! Read on below to discover how you can create your very own fabric garland.

Here’s what you need to get started:

  • fabric (new or old pieces)
  • ribbon or twine
  • scissors

DIY Fabric Garland - What You Need

Step 1: Choose some lightweight fabrics that tie in with the colour scheme of your room or party. Choose between three and four different styles for a nice effect. Cut up your fabric into thin strips. My strips roughly measure 4 cm wide by 40 cm long, but choose whatever measurements you feel are best, or that suit that fabric you’re working with.

Step 2: Once you have all your fabric ready to go, cut a piece of ribbon to however long you want your garland to be, remembering to allow extra ribbon on each end to hang it up. Then loosely secure to your work surface with some paper weights so that it doesn’t move around too much when you’re knotting the strips on.

Step 3: To begin adding the strips to your ribbon, fold one fabric strip in half. Then from the top, slide the folded end beneath your ribbon.

Step 4: Open the loop at the bottom and pull the opposite ends over the ribbon and through your loop. Then tighten the ends so they are securely in place on the ribbon.

Step 5: Continue with these steps for each strip you want to add to the ribbon. Make sure to slide the strips close together  so there are no gaps. Also make sure to interchange between fabrics so that the designs are evenly spaced out. If you feel that there are gaps in the garland at the end, simply go back and add more strips where desired.

Step 6: Once you have tied on all of your strips you can either trim the bottom of the strips for a neat look, or leave as is for a more rustic feel. Then you are ready to proudly display your new garland wherever you choose.

There you have it, a super simple no sew garland that is sure to impress! This little DIY is the perfect way to use up some spare fabrics you might have or is a great opportunity to pick out some new designs.

The Dark Knight 10th Anniversary – Our Favourite Batman Moments

This summer it’s ten years since the release of The Dark Knight! As big fans of Bruce Wayne and the city of Gotham, we’ve compiled our favourite Batman moments from the epic trilogy!

1. Batman Begins  “I’m Batman!”

Having waited so long to see our hero back in action, Christopher Nolan introduced a new style of Batman. The fantastic opening scene in Batman Begins displays this new mix of ferocity and craftiness. Batman battles a gang of thugs down at the docks, but remains unseen until the last moments. He then grabs the crime boss, Falcone, from his car. Falcone yells “What the hell are you?!” to which he receives a hair-raising response in that deep, husky voice: “I’m Batman.” A brilliant opening scene to welcome back Batman!

2. Batman Begins – Call For Back-Up

It wouldn’t be Batman without a few bats! Bruce chooses the bat as his symbol based on a frightening experience he had as a child, so representing the power to overcome fears and facing them head on. We see the relationship he has with these flying rodents come to a head when he is surrounded in Arkham Asylum, with what would appear to be no way to escape. However, then Batman pushes a small button in his heal. This engages sonar, causing a cloud of bats to swarm the building, and creating the perfect cover for Batman to make his escape. Epic Batman moment complete!

3. Batman Begins – “Why Do We Fall…”

Alfred acts as Bruce Wayne’s loyal and diligent housekeeper, guardian and best friend. In an emotional scene, we see Alfred bring Batman back to Earth that reminds us that, behind it all, Bruce is a complex individual. As we see Wayne Manor burning, there is a powerful exchange between Bruce who feels defeated: “I wanted to save Gotham. I failed”. To this Alfred quotes Bruce’s late father and offers some hope in an exciting ending to the film: “Why do we fall Sir? So that we can learn to pick ourselves up”. I can feel the tears welling up already!

4. The Dark Knight – Bank Heist

The opening scene to the second installment of the trilogy really sets the tone for the whole movie. In a bank heist, we are introduced to The Joker and his cronies creating chaos in the city of Gotham. With the bank manager close to death, he asks the criminals what they believe in. The Joker pulls off his mask to show a much scarier face and says: “Whatever doesn’t kill you, simply makes you stranger.” We can already tell we’re in for a story of madness.

5. The Dark Knight – Gate-crashing The Party

At a party hosted by Bruce Wayne, we get to see some classic violence and madness from the Joker and his goons. With The Joker on the hunt for Harvey Dent, they gate crash the party. We see Batman put Harvey in a sleeper hold and carry him, while The Joker begins to interrogate Wayne’s guests. The attention is then brought to Rachel Dawes, Bruce’s love interest, as The Joker brings a knife to her mouth and tells the chilling tale of this scars. As the tension is mounting, Batman returns and the fight begins. Close one Rachel!

6. The Dark Knight – Revealing Dent’s Dark Side

Here we see Harvey’s dark side introduced. The first indication that something is wrong with Gotham’s White Knight is when he questions one of The Joker’s henchmen, Shiff Thomas. Shiff gets the coin flip several times with a gun held to his head, until Batman swoops in and stops Dent. Batman warns the D.A. that if anyone were to see what Dent was doing, belief in the White Knight and Gotham would begin to crumble. Is all hope lost for Harvey Dent?

7. The Dark Knight – The Interrogation

The interrogation is probably the best Batman scene of all three movies in this epic trilogy. The Joker being cross-examined by Batman. The conversation between our protagonists is sharp, as The Joker queries Batman’s ethic. Here we see Batman really lose control. Batman pounds his enemy with hit after hit, as The Joker just laughs, giving the perfect scene of terror and suspense. The Joker once again unleashes his madness and says: “You have nothing to threaten me with, nothing to do with all your strength”, and continues to laugh. I have Goosebumps just thinking about it!

8. The Dark Knight Rises – Bane Hijacks A Plane

After the epic second installment, the third film needed to start with a bang! Well it certainly did with our introduction to Bane, Batman’s latest adversary. After Aidan Gillen’s character allows three hooded thugs onto his plane, he begins to question them about a secretive character that is known by the name of ‘Bane’. Naturally Bane is one of these hooded thugs. Here Bane’s charismatic side is unveiled with his witty response to a question about his mask. However, we also see his very violent side as he easily eliminates of his rivals and pulls off an unbelievable mid-air hijacking. What a start!

9. The Dark Knight Rises – Breaking The Bat

This next scene is a shocking one! Throughout this entire journey we had believed that Batman could beat anyone. But now we see Bane demonstrate a brutal spectacle of strength on The Dark Knight. Bane doesn’t seem to have to put in much effort as he knocks Batman to near death, before terrifyingly breaking his back. Bane walks away as we wonder how our hero is going to come back from this ruthless attack!

10. The Dark Knight Rises – It’s All Over

The closing moments of this impressive trilogy were always going to be an emotional. With no way to stop the bomb from destroying Gotham, Batman hauls it far over the bay, where it safely explodes. While we all wonder if Batman is gone for good, the final scene shows Alfred in Florence where he sees Bruce. We’re left to decide whether Bruce survived the bomb and was in fact happy in Paris with his love, Selina. It’s an immensely satisfying ending to a one of the best trilogies out there!

So that’s our top 10 Batman scenes from The Dark Knight Trilogy! There have been so many epic moments through these three movies. So if we’ve left one out, why not leave us a comment or share your favourite moment down below!

You can also pick up all these fantastic products of Batman memorabilia and more in our official Batman store, right here on Zazzle.

Easy DIY Wedding Ideas To Impress

While a wedding is a wonderful and joyous occasion, it can also be an expensive one! By taking charge of some of the elements and some simple DIY wedding ideas, you can make big savings. I had the recent pleasure of helping a relative of mine with her wedding, which was truly special. So I wanted to share some helpful homemade wedding ideas to add some unique elements to your ceremony and venue. Not only will they cut down on costs, but also make your big day more personal and a stand out affair!

Fairy Lights

Adding fairy lights to your decorations can be a simple and cost effective way to add some sparkle and glamour to your wedding décor. Whether you have a blank wall to arch way to dress up, fairy lights can both brighten up a dark area and create a relaxing ambiance. If your wedding venue is full of architectural features that might often go unnoticed, dress them up by wrapping a few strings of lights around them and as the day turns to night, these areas will become prominent features. Curtain lights can also be the perfect way to create an Instagram-worthy backdrop!

DIY Seating Chart

Making your own seating chart is one of the simplest DIY wedding projects. With Zazzle you can create your own wedding seating chart poster that matches your wedding theme such as vintage, rustic or classic romance. The great thing about designing your own seating chart is that you can create it in your own time, edit it as seating plans change, and place the order when you’re ready. You can jazz up your seating chart by sourcing a blank antique frame from a second hand shop, and hang it in the entrance to your wedding reception for instant, cost-effective glamour.

Candles

At my relative’s recent wedding, we used candles in just about any available space we could find. Candles, lit or unlit, can add an element of romance to the décor. This venue had a rustic feel to it so we used cream candles for a touch of rustic elegance and placed them around windowsills, a feature fireplace, and even in the bathrooms to dress them up! Using candles of varying widths and heights can draw the eye in and create focal point.

Greenery and Flowers

Flowers and greenery can end up being one of the most expensive elements of the day if purchased through the wedding venue or a wedding florist. Sourcing flowers from a wholesaler and creating some DIY flower arrangements can actually be simpler then it appears. Flowers such as roses and alstroemeria can make for the perfect flowers for your arrangements, and DIY wedding bouquets for the bridal party, as they are both available in a wide variety of colours to suit your wedding scheme. Greenery such as myrtle and honey bracelet can be used to fill out your flower arrangements, and ivy can be used among your decorations, for instance, surrounding candles or wrapped around your fairy lights for added impact. Source your flowers and greenery in advance and collect them the day before the wedding so you can create fresh and stunning arrangements.

Place Cards

Another one of our favourite DIY wedding ideas to do on Zazzle – design your own place cards. This is exactly what we did for my relatives wedding. We uploaded our own design, added some background colour and the end result was simply spectacular! Of course, for a really cost effective and personal touch, you can create your own from scratch. Source some simple white or cream colour blank cards and hand-write them yourself (or ask someone with nice handwriting!). Then with a simple stroll through the woods you can collect some pine cones to act as place card holders, and you’ve got the ultimate rustic chic place setting decorations!

Favours

It is often the small touches that will stand out to your guests and have them talking long after the big day so it’s important to get the favours just right. That doesn’t mean they need to be expensive – in fact DIY wedding favours can be much more memorable. Homemade sweets and treats can look truly impressive when wrapped up nicely. So why not pop some truffles or fudge in personalised favour bags or wrap them up in polythene and label them with gift tags. Or you could gift little bottles of homemade gin or liquor dressed up with personalised labels. If you don’t have time time to make your own, you can still buy your treats (we won’t tell), but the personalised packaging will give them a homemade, rustic look!

Wedding Signage

If your wedding venue is particularly large or you’re having an outdoor wedding, then you’ll want to have some signs to let your guests know where all the important parts are from the dance floor to the sweets table or toilets. You can create wedding sign posters to be in keeping with your wedding theme, or in bold, statement colours to stand out amongst the rest. Place these signs on easels or in simple frames for easy viewing. If you’re having an outdoor wedding, you can try your hand at creating your own custom signs from scratch. Source some wooden pieces, paint on your words of choice and nail the pieces to a simple blank. Without much hassle you’ve got some wedding décor with rustic class!

Centrepieces

Re-using everyday materials can be a great hack for wedding accessories. You can use jam jars or mason jars to act as wedding centrepieces that you can fill with lights and foliage. Additionally, if you want to collect some wine bottles over time, you can spray paint these with gold or silver metallic paint. They can make amazing vases for flowers to be used as fabulous centrepieces, or as decorations throughout the wedding. This little trick will make your vases look much more expensive than they actually are!

Bake It Away

A recent trend with many wedding parties is to make their own wedding desserts and sweet treats, giving their big day a very personal element. By making your own sweet treats for the dessert table, you’ll make a big saving in this area, as well as getting exactly what you want and love. Better yet, you can ask some close friends or family to lend a hand for a marvellous spread of delicious desserts for all to share!

So there you have it, for my own family wedding we found that the parts of the wedding that really stood out to guests were the decorations that we had taken the time and effort to do ourselves. Adding your own personal touches to your wedding day can make the day truly unique and can let you and your soon to-be spouse’s personalities shine through!

Royal Wedding Details To Inspire Your Own Big Day!

A week last Saturday, the world tuned in to watch the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The event was set to break tradition and push the boundaries of the royal family and it did not disappoint! We were treated to a host of celebrity guests, fabulous fashion, a moving speech by Rev. Michael Bruce Curry and a powerful rendition of ‘Stand By Me’.

With the summer wedding season about to begin, and brides planning those last finishing touches, I’ve put together a list of the best royal wedding details to inspire your own big day and give it that regal edge!

The Invitations

One of the elements that largely kept within royal traditions were the wedding invites. The official invitations were gilded and made using American ink on English card – a subtle nod to the union of two different cultures. The invitations featured the three-feathered badge of Prince Charles in gold ink at the top, printed on thick, eight-by-six-inch white cards. While the design was traditional, the happy couple made them more modern by writing ‘Ms Meghan Markle’ instead of her full name of ‘Ms Rachel Meghan Markle’. You might not have your own family crest, but gold wedding invitations with your initials or a personal emblem will still make for an elegant invitation suite.

The Décor & Flowers

The royal wedding décor was focused on beautiful botanical features. The entry ways and arches were filled with a spectacular display of flora and greenery. The church already featured elaborate architecture, and the delicate royal wedding flowers gave the perfect finishing touch. Their florist created a floral display with flowers naturally in bloom at this time of the year, including peonies, white roses and foxgloves that were locally sourced from the Crown Estate and Windsor Great Park. As well as the succulent green foliage, silver birch, beech and hornbeam were used throughout the archways and entry ways.

As well as these floral arrangements, Meghan’s bridal bouquet included flowers hand-picked by Harry from their private garden at Kensington Palace. The bouquet included jasmine, sweet peas, myrtle, lily of the valley and forget-me-nots where were Princess Diana’s favourite flower, a small nod to the groom’s mother. We’re sure lots of brides are now longing for a similar look so the greenery wedding trend is only set to soar!

The Bridal Party

Having children in the bridal party is traditional to royal weddings. Meghan and Harry selected ten bridesmaids and page boys to attend their wedding, and they were all children with close ties to the couple, including Princess Charlotte and Prince George. While Harry included his brother, Prince William, as his Best Man, Meghan broke from tradition and opted not to have a maid of honour or chief bridesmaid. There are several advantages to having a younger bridal party – as well as looking adorable, you won’t upset any older friends who don’t make the cut! Invite your little tribe to be by your side with ‘Will you be my flower girl’ cards!

The Outfits 

Meghan did not let people down when it came to her royal wedding dress. The modest and classic dress included a bateau neckline, three-quarter length sleeves, and a long flowing train. Her five-metre long veil featured hand-embroidered floral designs, representing the countries of the Commonwealth. Meghan also wore a simple diamond tiara once owned by Queen Mary. Both Prince Harry and Prince William wore the frockcoat uniform of the Blues and Royals.

The bridal party of royal tots were also dressed to impress.  Each of the bridesmaid dresses were made out of ivory silk, and were of a high-waisted design with short puff sleeves. They included pleated skirts and pockets and were finished off with a double silk ribbon tied in a bow at the back. The look was then completed with stunning flower crowns, in keeping with the floral décor. The page boys wore a miniature version of Prince Harry’s Blues and Royals frockcoat.

The Colour Scheme

The royal wedding colour scheme was fresh and natural. The bride and bridesmaids wore bright white and tones of pastel green were seen throughout the bouquets, in keeping with the colours used in the décor. The rest of the bridal party also dressed to match, with the Queen opting for a stunning citrine coat over her plum, lime, and emerald printed floral dress. The mother of bride wore a mint green coat with floral detailing atop a matching dress, while the Duchess of Cambridge went with a modest primrose yellow dress with a floral fascinator. The colour scheme could be described as a spring-green garden, with pastel tones and natural flowers at the forefront.

The Photography

The couple also opted for an incredibly natural style when it came to the royal wedding photography. The official photographs made use of natural light, included members of the family with natural smiles and people placed at different heights with natural poses. While some newlyweds wait months to reveal their wedding photography, these newlyweds were not shy about releasing their photos just days after the event. Why not embrace a similar approach by sending out photo wedding thank you cards soon after your wedding with fun snaps of the day.

The Favours 

Even at a royal wedding, favours were a must! Official gift bags were handed out to the 2,640 members of the public who were invited into the castle grounds to view the couple’s special day. The gift bags were a simple hessian bag with striking blue handles. They were also personalised for the newlyweds with the initials ‘HM’ and the date and venue of the wedding. Inside each bag was a service booklet, a tube of shortbread, a large chocolate Harry and Meghan coin, a bottle of water and a fridge magnet – so both practical supplies and keepsakes for the day. Treat your guests to something similar with wedding tote bags, filled with treats like magnets for mementos as well as practical elements like plasters for all those dancing feet after the dinner!

The Menu & Cake

The couple’s first wedding reception was hosted by the Queen and Prince Philip at St George’s Chapel, for a whopping 600 attendees. The guests were treated to a selection of canapes including smoked salmon, grilled asparagus and garden pea panna cotta. A selection of larger dishes then included free-range chicken with mushrooms and leeks, as well as slow roasted Windsor pork belly. Produce from their menu was largely sourced in the UK. Guests also sipped on champagne, a selection of wines and an elderflower mocktail that was made with the same elderflower syrup used in the wedding cake.

The wedding cake was a lemon-flavoured sponge, soaked in an elderflower cordial syrup, covered in a Swiss meringue buttercream also flavoured with elderflower. It was made in three parts of varying sizes, which were arranged atop footed, golden bowls and a mirrored tray.
If you’re planning on hosting a royal feast of your own, be sure to present your guests with all the delicious options printed on wedding menus to match your theme.

The Personalised Touches

This royal wedding certainly wasn’t shy of adding in some personal touches for the happy couple. There were family favourite flowers, special music and even a Tiki-themed bar, just like Harry’s favourite London bar, as part of their ‘festival themed’ celebration. Guests were also welcomed by a steel band before the meal.

These personal elements really reflected the couple’s personality on their special day and you can do the same. If you’re wine lovers, why not create personalised wine labels for the table, or if you’re jetting off for a beach wedding, make your own custom flip flops! Everyone will remember the small touches so make sure to let your personalities shine through, just like the happy royal couple!

How to Host a Royal Wedding Party

With the Royal Wedding only weeks away excitement is starting to build! If your invitation got lost in the post (don’t worry, mine did too), you can still celebrate – just host your own royal wedding party at home. It’s the next best thing to being at St George’s Chapel.

Unfortunately there isn’t an extra day off work this time around, but luckily they will still be televising the wedding, which is all that really matters! Much like Eurovision, Harry and Meghan’s big day is the perfect excuse to gather your mates, lay on some drinks and nibbles, then commentate on all the style and events throughout the day! Here at Zazzle, we’ve got some handy tips to help you host the perfect Royal Wedding viewing party. With everything from the decorations to food to favours, your celebration is sure to rival the main event.

Guest List & Invites

First of all you need to plan the location and guest list. Hosting your party in your own abode makes for an easy and relaxed day, but you could also head out to watch it at a public screening. Once you’ve settled on a location, it’s time to write up a guest list. We don’t imagine you’ll be inviting as many people as Meghan’s ‘modest’ 600 attendees, but a group of close friends who are equally as excited as you are will make for the perfect party! Harry and Meghan won’t be taking any half measures for the wedding, so make sure you invite your guests the right way too with royal wedding party invitations. You can choose from lots of great designs from fun and fancy to regal and elegant. If you really want to impress your friends, pick a design just like Harry and Meghan’s real invitation, with black and gold detailing.

Decorations & Party Supplies

Location, check. Guest list, check. Invitations, check. Next on the agenda is sort out the essential Royal Wedding decorations and party supplies. No event is complete without some decorations to match! Bunting and banners would make the perfect backdrop for all those selfies and group shots you’ll take with your guests to remember the day. Then pick up paper party supplies to add to the decor, and make the clean up afterwards a whole lot easier! Find Union Jack paper plates and cups, neat napkins and even posh paper hats!

Royal Wedding Paper Plate

Games & Favours

Between all the action of people arriving and speeches being given, you’ll want to make sure you have some activities on hand to keep your guests entertained. A classic choice is a simple deck of cards, where anyone can suggest different games to play like Snap or Old Maid. You can even up the stakes and get some Harry and Meghan themed poker chips for a game of Texas Hold’em. Or just create your own Royal Wedding games at home. Simply put together some trivia questions about the wedding and Royal Family and have some fun testing everyone’s knowledge! You can even provide some little party favours like personalised key rings or compact mirrors as prizes for the games to commemorate the day. Customise them to include information about your party or the royal wedding for the perfect keepsake.

Dress For The Occasion

Last but not least is to sort out what you’re going to wear for the day. Whether you’re going to a screening at the pub or a street party, you’ll want to dress to impress! If you’re hosting a posh event, you and your mates might want get out the fancy frocks and dress up as though you’re off to Windsor Castle! If you’re looking for something a little more relaxed, fun and frill-free, we’ve got a few options that might just do the trick. Why not get matching t-shirts for you and all your friends to wear while you commentate on all the guests’ attire? For a fancier finish, try a Royal Wedding tie, and for the ladies, a handy themed tote bag would be the perfect purse for the day!

Whether you’re going big on the celebrations for the Royal Wedding, or keeping it low key and simple, it’s sure to be a day to remember! As for me, my friends are not as excited about the big event as I am, so I’ll be having a pyjama party while watching all the festivities! However, I’ve made sure I’ve got myself sorted with a Harry & Meghan mug for the multiple cups of tea and biscuits I’ll be consuming on the day! Let me know what your plans are to watch the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in the comments below.

DIY Easter Decorations: Fabric Bunnies

If you’re anything like me then you’re always looking for an excuse to get out some decorations and Easter is no exception. It’s really the first time since taking down the Christmas tree that there is another reason to decorate, and decorate we shall! Once the first day of lent has started you can be sure that I’ll be hanging the Easter bunting on any available wall space. Plus, while I love to decorate, I love to make my own Easter decorations even more. It gives me the chance to search the web for new ideas, and adds that unique and personal touch to my home.

Once I saw these little bunnies on Pinterest, I decided I had to make them! It’s the perfect Easter crafts project for me as it’s quick and easy, and they look adorable dotted around my house. You can make one of these rabbits in 15–20 minutes. So you’ll have a whole nest of bunnies in no time, which is really egg-citing! Also, using a selection of different Easter fabrics really makes these creations stand out. Pastels, polka dots and striped fabrics work perfectly for the season.

So without further ado, let’s hop into the how to!

What You’ll Need:

  • Selection of fabrics
  • Pencil and paper
  • Stuffing
  • Needle
  • Threads
  • Dress pins
  • Scissors/pinking shears
  • Bows & ribbons (optional)
  • Craft glue

Easter Fabric

How to Make Your Fabric Easter Bunnies

1. First of all, draw out your rabbit template. It’s completely up to you on how big you want your bunnies to be. If you don’t trust your drawing skills, like me, just search the web for a simple template to work with!

2. Next, cut out your template. Once this is done you want to double up your fabric so that both sides of your rabbit are the exact same size. Fold your fabric so that the front or outside sides are together and you can place your template on the back side of the fabric. Trace an outline of your bunny on the back side of the fabric.

3. Cut through both layers of your fabric along the outline of your bunny, using a scissors or a pinking shears. I used pinking shears because I like the crimped effect and this method also helps the fabric from fraying. But you can just use ordinary scissors for this. I also held my fabric together with a couple of dress pins, just to ensure they didn’t move during cutting.

4. Once you have your two pieces cut out, place them together, front sides facing out. Again, secure them with a couple of dress pins to ensure they don’t move around when you sew them together.

5. Next, you need to sew the pieces together. Using a simple running stitch technique, start from the bottom corner and sew around your bunny to the other corner. Ensure you don’t sew the bottom part just yet as we still need to fill the bunny. If you have a sewing machine, you can use this instead to speed up this process and create a tighter stitch.

6. Once you are happy with your sewing, you can begin to stuff the bunny to your desired level of plump. I like to fill these up as much as I can so that they feel like little teddies. When your bunny is nice and plump you can sew up the bottom part and close up the bunny.

Stuffing Easter Fabric Bunnies

7. The final step is completely optional. If you are happy with your bunnies as is, then you can stop here and start the process again to create a whole colony of Easter bunnies! But if you want to add a bit more personality then read on! For my bunnies, I picked up some bows and ribbons from a local craft shop. Using some craft glue, I stuck these little accessories onto my bunnies for the perfect finishing touches and set them aside to dry.

For alternative accessorising ideas, you could sew little eyes and a mouth onto the bunnies instead of buying extra bits. Also, if you have some cotton balls lying around, you could glue a little bunny tail onto the back for extra cuteness!

So there you have it, super simple and cute DIY fabric Easter bunnies. I have made quite a few of these for my home and plan to make some extras as Easter gifts for family and friends. It’s a great alternative to giving Easter eggs because we all end up with far too much chocolate when Easter Sunday rolls around anyway! One or two bunnies each plus one of Zazzle’s Easter cards and your loved ones will be wowed!
