DIY Easter Bunny Runner
18 Mar 2021
You’ll have everyone hopping to dinner with this Easter-inspired table runner.
You will need:
- Fabric, enough to fit length of table plus some
- A ball of yarn
- Fabric scissors, needle and thread
- Bunny stencil
- Artist’s brush and Resene testpot brush
- Resene testpots in your choice of colours — Leigh used Resene Paper Doll, Resene Scrumptious and Resene Envy
To make the pom pom tails (you can make these while the paint is drying on your bunny runner):
Step one: Wrap yarn around two or three fingers around 100 times, and cut the end of the yarn. To make a larger pom pom wrap the yarn around more fingers.
Step two: Take a small piece of yarn (around 5cms) and wrap around the middle of the wrapped yarn, and knot tightly.
Step three: Remove the ball of strings from your fingers and cut the loops all around.
Step four: Cut off any excess yarn to even the pom poms out and fluff up.
Repeat steps 1-4 to make as many pom pom tails as you need.
To make the bunny runner:
Step one: Use the stencil to outline the bunnies onto the fabric, spacing them equally apart.
Step three: Once the paint is dry, hand stitch the pom poms to each bunny to create the fluffy tails.
