Easter Bunny Bunting

 Spring is finally here...well at least for the next 2 days anyway.  We are supposed to get up into the high 60's with clear sky's and sunshine until Wednesday when clouds, rain and the 40's come back to town.  So while I am enjoying the Spring weather outside, I am also enjoying Spring and Easter on the inside!
 I needed a bunting for my corner with my chippy door.  I bought nothing, using only what I had: burlap, felt, ribbon, twine and pom poms.  I Googled bunny silhouette and found this one that I traced onto felt, cut out and attached to a square of burlap.  I then glued a white pom pom on each one for its tail and a bow on its ears.  I think they are adorable and perfect for Easter!
 No matter how many times I adjusted my camera settings, the flash kept washing out the cute image on my glittered butterfly.  It has a vintage image of chicks in a basket that says Welcome.  I got it from the Dollar Tree.
 I am sure I have told you how awesome my in-laws are, always picking something up for me at yard sales and thrift shops that they think I will like.  They had this antique rocking chair in their living room and when they got a new one, they decided to give this one to me.
 I am already dreaming up how I want it to look, what kind of fabric I will put on the seat cushion, etc.  The only problem is, now I want another one so Cody and I can sit out on the patio and watch the sunset all summer long!
