Gather the materials you will need to make your Easter garland.

To make this easy Easter Bunny garland, you will just need a few materials:

  • construction paper or lightweight card stock paper in a variety of pastel and bright colors (pink, blue, yellow, purple, green, etc.)
  • cookie cutters in spring/Easter shapes such as a bunny or a flower
  • pencil
  • fabric ribbon (thin ones will work best), about 5 feet or more in length (depending on how long you want the garland to be)
  • hole puncher
  • large (3-inch diameter) paper punch in a spring/Easter shape, such as a scalloped circle (You don't need a paper punch to make these pretty garlands, but paper punches do make the project go much faster. Large punches can be a bit more expensive than smaller ones--anywhere between $15 and $25 or more--but if you plan on using lots of large punch shapes for arts and crafts projects, it's worth the investment.)
  • scissors

If you are using a paper punch, make several punch shapes in various colors.

If you are using a scallop or other shape paper punch, make several in various spring/Easter colors.

4
If you are using cookie cutters, simply use the cutters to draw your shapes.

If you are not using a paper punch, you can simply use cookie cutters to make your shapes. Take a cookie cutter--a bunny shape is great for Easter but a flower or anything spring-themed will do--and draw your shape using the cutter as a guide. Then cut out your shape. Repeat the process with different colors of paper. (Kids will love helping draw and/or cut out the shapes.)

5
Punch holes in your cutouts and feed a ribbon through to make your garland.

Next, punch a hole on opposite sides of your scallop paper punch or bunny or flower and feed a thin ribbon through to form your garland. Alternate colors as you go along to create a colorful Easter garland.

To secure the garland onto the ribbon, tie a couple of knots at the end of the ribbon to make sure your cutout doesn't slip through. You can also add a bit of Scotch tape to the back of the cutouts to help them stay in place on the ribbon.
