bow ties & cotton tails garland

Isn’t it funny how at Christmastime, there is an endless amount of songs being sung about the holiday? Then we get to Easter and there is…one, maybe two!?!? We all know the one thought, right? “Here comes Peter Cotton Tail, hopping down the bunny trail…” Today I pay homage to that song. I remember my Grandmother sining it at Easter time to me when I was little. And now, when I think of that Peter Cotton Tail, I see a dapper bunny dressed in a bow tie, hopping along with his fluffy tail following behind. Inspiration for some Easter decor is what I call it.

This Easter Bow Ties & Cotton Tails Garland is too cute not to add to your decor.  It isn’t quite as obviously Easter as, say, eggs would be…but anyone who knows the song will get it.

You’ll need a bag of jumbo cotton balls and a spool of your ribbon color.  I ended up going with the turquoise.  Shocker.  You will also need a hot glue gun and needle and thread.

Make your bows by cutting a length of ribbon, attaching the ends to make a loop, then wrapping the center with a shorter length of ribbon.  Secure the whole thing with glue.

Then just string your cotton and bow ties  onto your thread, working right through the center of the bow.

I apologize if you now have “Peter Cotton Tail” stuck in your head for the rest of the day.  But isn’t this garland so stink in’ cute?  Have a great weekend!

    So cute! I was just singing this song today to Ronan. He loves The Tale of Peter Cottontail, makes me read it at least once a day!

      I am not surprised! Once he makes up his mind that he likes a story or a song, it is only that story/song for a while. We are on a “Where the Wild Things Are” kick here…every night.
