Happy Weekend!  I am finally getting some Easter decorations up around our home and wanted to share with you guys.  My kids still get really excited when I put up any kind of holiday decorations, so I wanted to add a few Easter touches to our home.  Not finding a whole lot of décor that I liked in the stores, I decided to make my own.  I love how this little bunny banner turned out...sweet and simple.

To create this, I only had to buy the canvas banner kit and the stencil, everything else I already had on hand.  I found the banner kit at Michael's and the cute bunny stencil here.  I bought it for $0.99 even though I don't have a silhouette machine.  I figured that I could still print it and then trace it and cut my own stencil.  So that's what I did and it worked well :)  I traced the bunny to the size I wanted on cardstock and then cut it out.  I simply placed it on the canvas banner piece and started painting.  Really easy!

I usually hang all my banners from my mantel, but really liked this one against the white cabinets, so I thought I would try a new spot. 

And totally switching gears...I am extremely excited that we finally bought new tile for our backsplash!!  Now, let's see how long it takes to get it installed...
