Easter Bunny Origami Banner
I love having seasonal banners on my fireplace hearth. People see them when they walk in the front door, and they make me happy! I wanted something different this year, and found this origami bunny design that I thought I could tie together and make a fun Easter Bunny Origami Banner.
I started with a 12″ by 12″ piece of scrapbook paper in a fun design.
Step one: Fold it in half diagonally.
Step two: Fold in half horizontally. Then line up the edges carefully.
Step three: Open up, then fold up about 1/4 of your triangle. I started with a 12″ by 12″ square, so that was just over an inch that I folded up. This will be the width of your bunny ears, so you can gauge how much to fold up.
Step four: Now fold both sides into the middle. The ‘ends’ form the bunny ears.
Step five: As I show in the picture above, turn up the bottom to form the bottom of the bunny face. Then, turn it over and turn under the same amount at the top to form the top of the bunny face (see picture below).
The bunny face is ready for your creativity! I started by adding some pom-poms for the noses. Since I wanted to make a banner, I made a lot of the base Easter bunny origami faces!
Then I added bunny whiskers.
And some eyes and mouths . . .
Then the next step was figuring out how to bring them all together for a banner. I decided on a pattern that stepped them up and down for more visual interest, and used raffia to tie the origami bunnies together.
And, here is the finished banner! It brings a smile to me! Happy Origami Easter Bunnies!
P.S. It was intentional to make the nose color change every other origami bunny face!
