A few years back we had family visiting over Easter. I thought, why not go all out for a fun Easter Brunch? We had a buffet lunch with lots of sweets for desert, an egg hunt with baskets for the kids to decorate and even a pinata!
First thing on the planning list was a photo backdrop and props! The backdrop was a lot of fun to put together. I used white and off-white muslin fabric and hand wrote the words using my kids pastels. Even though I used fabric it was no sew – fabric glue for the win! The bunny banner I’ve had for awhile. I love that the tails are pompoms! When my kids were smaller they used to pull the tails off for fun….
Then, I scoured Pinterest for photo props and found a lot of great photo prop printables. At the time my printer was kaput (technically out of toner and I wasn’t ready to give up my arms and legs for more!) so I turned to my Silhouette to help me out.

The tracing tool (in the Silhouette software) helped with getting the basic shapes. I then created the different layers for each piece, cut and glued them together. Arent’ those bunny mouths so stinkin’ cute? The sticks are BBQ skewers hot glued onto the backs. My daughter and I had fun giving then a test run!
The bows were made using this tutorial and template from How About Orange.
The flowers were a fun last minute addition! Here’s how you can make your own flowers:
|1. For each flower cut out three flower shapes. Make sure they are symmetrical.|
|2. Fold each in half.|
|3. Line up two shapes next to each other. Put glue on the sides that meet.|
|4. Press the sides with glue together.|
|5. Flip the piece from step 4 over so that the flat side is up. Put glue on the flat side. Then put the third flower piece on.|
|6. Press the pieces together to form the flower. Leave a little space in the center for the stick.|
|7. Put a little glue on the stick and then slide it into the space.
Lastly you can use washi tape or flower tape on the stick to make it green.
The flowers can be used for decoration or as a fun activity for kids as well. You don’t have to stop at flowers either, you could do bunnies or eggs! Any symmetrical shape will work with this technique.
Wishing everyone a very blessed Easter!
