Yesterday I shared how to make watercolor paintings with kids. And from those paintings, I cut out these cute little bunnies.
This was all my daughter’s idea.
She mapped out a plan for Spring decorating, and one of the things on her list was “a bunny garland, with bunnies that are the same shapes as the ones in in the mobile in your bedroom.” She tends to cut right to the chase.
I asked for some advice here and on Facebook, on how we could turn our watercolor cut-outs into a garland, and you came back with some great ideas. Jen from the amazing blog, Paint Cut Paste, shared a Pinterest Board dedicated to all-things-garland, M Wall suggested that we use small clothespins, and Megan S. gave me the idea to add small paper clips and hang them from baker’s twine.
When I was out in the morning I did a quick hunt for tiny clothespins with no luck (that would have been cute, eh?), but I like how the colorful paperclips that I found ages ago at Daiso helped pull this together.
I clipped them all up, leaving a few inches between bunnies, and then strung them in the garden.
The very windy garden.
And they lasted about three minutes before they were scattered all over the lawn and plants. Hmmm.
So we brought them inside where they’re safe and sound, helping us welcome Spring on this cool and windy Spring day.
These are beautiful. (And you did a great job cutting them out!)
these look so awesome!!! love!
