We love getting together as a family on holidays. Most of the time, family members will bring the same dish year after year. It’s the dish you look forward to – tradition. Once in a while, we will bring a new dish to the table, […]
Spring is officially here! I do not often decorate for spring, but after our cold snow filled winter, IM EXCITED about Spring! I saw this DIY Craft the other day and had some ideas to improve and so I took the time and made this adorable bunny garland for Spring! I had almost everything I needed on hand and it only took about two hours, with AnnaLynn inturptions! So glad I took the time to make this and I’m excited to have it in my Spring home wardrobe! Here are the supplies you need! (You do not have to use song sheets! I think an old newspaper or colored paper would be just as cute!)
Start by finding a bunny pattern you like! I just googled and did my best to copy it from my phone, nothing too special! I traced around the pattern on the song sheets and cut them out.
Once you have them all cut out, you can laminate them. I chose to laminate so they would last forever, but you do not have to do that step. If you laminate, you can poke holes in the ears after you laminate. (I do not have a hole punch, so I just poked holes with my scissors.) Glue cotton balls on them for their tails and let them dry before you string the garland. I did cut my cotton balls in half, because I felt like they were bigger than the bunny was! But if decide to do a larger bunny the full size cotton ball will work great!
Now it’s time to string the garland up! This will take the most time, if you did not use a hole punch! If I do this again, I will purchase a hole punch to make the stringing process quicker and easier! But it worked and still turned out super cute!! Here is the end result!
Happy Spring! Comment below with a picture if you venture out and try the bunny garland!

I have little toddlers, and after a few Christmases and birthdays, buying the toys gets old…not to mention can cause a lot of clutter! People have gotten us some pretty thoughtful gifts too, as well as toys, but I thought I’d put together a little […]
I blinked … I blinked and she turned TWO.
Calloway is the sweetest little girl you will ever meet. (I’m sure most mothers say that about their daughters, but know this … mine is the sweetest.) She ADORES her brother Silas and he takes full advantage of that! She and daddy are best buds. “Callie Grace” loves to help mommy … laundry, cook, clean, etc. she’s up for anything! Baby dolls (and their accessories) are her life right now. Her cousin AnnaLynn introduced her to Word Party on Netflix and that’s all she asks to watch! She recently got glasses and it’s almost too cute to handle. She is speaking in full sentences and has so much to say.
Here are some of my favorite pictures of Callie …
We love you so much, Calloway! Happy 2nd Birthday!
